Migrate Silverlight to HTML5

Do you have critical Silverlight apps that need to be migrated before it’s too late?

The use of Microsoft Silverlight becomes more and more complicated as we approach its end of life in October 2021.  This seems so far off, yet the harsh reality is that it’s already becoming a major issue.  As of September 2015, Chrome will fully remove support for the plugin that enables Silverlight.  Even Microsoft, the company that created Silverlight, has dropped support in its new Edge browser that ships with Windows 10.  The writing is on the wall and it’s high time to do something about those critical Silverlight apps before it’s too late!

Why choose us as your Silverlight development company?

As a custom software development company, PhaseAlpha knows Silverlight from top to bottom because we have developed and maintained many Silverlight apps while it was still a hot technology.  We understand the challenges as well as those areas where shortcuts can be taken to migrate your apps to another platform, saving time and money.  If you are looking for a company that you can trust to get this done on time and do it right the first time, PhaseAlpha is your answer. We will help guide you through testing and deployment to insure success.

Microsoft Silverlight development features

Near identical user experience

Exactly or very closely reproduce the behaviors of your Silverlight app.  Depending on the target platform, most of the behaviors such as drag-and-drop, swiping, and file uploading can be reproduced to look and feel almost exactly like Silverlight.  Where there are exceptions, we can take creative steps to closely mimic your app’s behaviors.

Keep existing business logic

Reuse back-end systems, databases, and existing business logic.  This already exists and works just fine, so no need to redo this work.  We will analyze how your Silverlight app is communicating and interacting with your back-end systems and rewire the interfaces to work with your new technology.  This will allow you to take advantage of what you already have without creating additional risk during the migration.

Same look and feel

UI and UX design can be reused, saving time and  money.  If your app is already working well for your audience, the existing UI/UX design can be leveraged in the new system.  However, if there are areas for improvement, now is the time to collaborate with our UI/UX specialists to make your system work even better!

Multi-platform support with HTML5

Targeting HTML5, we can enable your app on all platforms unlike Silverlight, which does not work on iOS.  By using the latest technologies and techniques, our team can take your app to a new level, enhancing the UI to work on desktops, tablets, and smartphones.
