Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Program
VirtaMove has a unique ISV software offering. Our ISV Program can help ISVs open up and lock in $10s of millions in additional re-occurring legacy maintenance revenue and accelerate additional revenue from customer upgrades.
Call us to learn exactly how the VirtaMove ISV Program does that. VirtaMove Intelligent Migration software is compatible with ISV offerings, and we know this from the success we’re enjoying with joint customers.

ISV companies know that legacy customers are not modernizing their WS2003 and WS2008 applications because it costs too much, takes too long, and requires too many internal resources.
As a result, Windows ISVs are losing maintenance and upgrade revenue as customers fall out of support and fail to buy and upgrade to modern versions of their applications.
Moving legacy applications forward to new, modern servers and operating systems is complex because you need to determine and inherit the current state of installed production applications. Most ISVs can’t deal with application state customer configuration issues in production servers; consequently, they recommend clean, new app installs on new servers with a migration plan.
Customers opt out of upgrades because clean, new installs break all of the production state constraints and create disruption and long migration delays.
The VirtaMove ISV Program solves these problems for ISVs.
It offers two-way partnering and revenue sharing between ISVs and VirtaMove. We roll legacy ISV apps and state/configuration data forward to modern servers for customers; in the process, we open up and lock in long term legacy maintenance contracts for the ISV. In addition, once the legacy ISV app is running on modern servers, we offer a planned and controlled way to do an in-place upgrade of the ISV app to a modern version. This generates additional upgrade revenue, maintenance, and customer lock in.
