Bring Your Business Up To Speed with Application Modernization


As demands on IT and Business continue to grow, organizations across industries are striving to reach new markets and become more competitive. They are also looking for ways to streamline operations and reduce their operating costs. But since many of these companies are dependent on legacy systems they’re finding it harder to meet those challenges. Customers we work with have often cited that legacy systems are complex, costly and lack agility to meet their current and future business needs.

Application Modernization can help break the chains legacy systems have around your business and can shift the focus of IT from maintenance to innovation and from cost savings to business agility.  Application modernization can also help you gain a simplified environment, which in turn can help you adopt digital technologies and create a IT solid foundation for the future.

In our experience, customers are generally overwhelmed with the idea of modernization. They often see it as complex, time consuming and expensive. But it need not be so, especially if you have the right partner to guide you.

That partner is Stonebranch and Dell. Together, we bring more than 25 years of experience working with customers across industries and unique expertise in Workload Automation Solutions.

Stonebranch is a provider of modern Workload Automation Solutions. We have worked with many customers and have helped them gain agility by overcoming antiquated architectures and tool sprawl, and helped them cut operational costs due to their aging IT systems. Dell Application Modernization Services offer end-to-end solutions, including its own unique, patented IP that helps customers build and rationalize their modernization plan, and put it into action.  The company’s Application Re-hosting services moves existing business logic and data investments onto modern platforms.

For organizations running custom or homegrown applications --- and we see a lot of them ---, Dell’s Application Re-architecture is the solution. This proven methodology transforms applications onto modern platforms, while protecting intrinsic business logic and application assets. With a new, agile architecture, organizations can continue to grow, quickly adapt and respond to changes like cloud computing, mobile and virtualization.   

Find out how Stonebranch and Dell Application Modernization Services can help you simplify your IT environment and help you become future-ready.

Join us on April 6th for a free webinar, where Dell and Stonebranch will discuss Legacy Modernization for Workload Automation, share practical tips and real-world examples of customers we’ve helped.

Stonebranch Seizes on the Power of Enablement for Channel Success


Our friends at CallidusCloud wrote a great blog entry about Stonebranch. Here's an excerpt.

Partner enablement and training for many organizations has become known as a foundational item for driving growth. I recently heard a quote from a client that just makes perfect sense: "Without an effective way to on-board, train, enable/coach and communicate with partners on a routine basis, you many as well not recruit them to begin with". As studies have shown, the average channel partner deals with more than eight vendors, and they're often competitors. In order to be your partners' first choice, you have to be the easiest to sell and the easiest to support. Enablement allows partners to be more successful, more productive, and in this case more likely to make Stonebranch their go-to vendor.

Highlights of the Stonebranch Worldwide Partner Program include:

  • New Partner Portal built on CallidusCloud Enablement technology
  • Comprehensive training: virtual and classroom sales, presales and technical courses
  • Dedicated partner team including executive management, field channel and sales operations managers
  • Sales collaboration models and access to the Stonebranch professional services team
  • Partner marketing programs to help develop new business
