The world is changing. Applications that are optimized for on-prem usage don’t fit in this new business reality. Now is a good time to take a look at your applications to identify which can carry your business into the future—and which must be modernized to meet operational needs. Our team of technology experts can lead the way.
Modernizing your applications is a great way to stay current in a changing market. Let Softway be your guide. We’ve worked for a range of clients in various industries—creating solutions that get stuff done.

Incompatible integrations. On-prem only software. Monolithic applications. These are just a few examples of technical debt—or the idea that most solutions will require rework as better options become available. Every business has some level of technical debt. While that may sound bleak, there is a light at the end of this technology tunnel. When it comes to your legacy applications, Softway has the experience and know-how to apply a gradual approach to get you back on track.
There’s more than one way to upgrade applications. Sure, you can replace everything all at once—but that can create costly downtime, an immediate need for training, and well, chaos. We opt for a different approach. In most cases, we’ll guide you through a gradual sunsetting of the applications that no longer serve your business needs. That way, you get all the benefits of change, without shocking your customers—or your teams.
Remember: nothing works forever in technology. So we think the best way to avoid a jarring replacement is to start planning your upgrade strategy early. We use our ever-expanding knowledge of industry trends along with focused user research to help guide efforts tailored for your business needs. From taking inventory of the applications that are serving you well today, to understanding how prepared you are to manage the expiration date of older applications—we’ve got you covered.
The only way we can know which applications are out-of-date is by listening. Here are just a few things we hear from clients that let us know it’s time to reimagine an app:
Whatever your need, we’ll work with you to prioritize application needs, and create a plan to address them over time.
In 2014, two groups of the Oil & Gas Producers agreed that there would be significant benefits in combining the two separate database activities, to enable a single-focused and aligned database system to be developed that would provide insight on equipment performance. Softway built a database-driven web portal that collected data and ran reports on the performance and reliability of equipment defined by the participants of the IOGP/IADC BOP Reliability Joint Industry Project (JIP).
We get it—if you’re like most decision-makers, you’re facing ever-tightening budgets. Striking the balance between short-term gains and long-term impacts is a challenge we don’t take lightly. But without assessing the state of your applications, you may be throwing away money to avoid making waves.
As teams and operations go fully remote, applications are being pushed beyond their limits. Are you set up to succeed in this new reality? With Softway, we can help you get there with confidence.
