Microsoft will end support for Silverlight on October 12, 2021 – What it means for your projects

As Microsoft already announced in 2015, support for the Silverlight Framework will end on 12 October 2021. The framework is currently only supported by Internet Explorer 10 and 11, with support for Internet Explorer 10 already ending in January 2020. Modern browsers such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Safari no longer support Silverlight, and these applications also do not run on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets.

Older projects created with WEBfactory 2006 or 2010 are affected by these changes. But what exactly does this mean?

Therefore, we strongly recommend migrating from Silverlight to HTML5, to avoid any problems and security vulnerabilities. Unfortunately, a direct conversion from Silverlight to HTML5 is not possible, but we are happy to support you.

As a Microsoft partner we are specialists for Silverlight as well as for HTML5. We will guide you through the entire conversion process and guarantee a smooth migration of your current applications. We also migrate and optimize your existing enterprise solutions with cloud services. For this, we use the most modern frameworks. Thus, high-performance native HTML5 applications can be implemented, which are executable in all modern browsers, be it on the desktop or on mobile devices. The perfect display of the applications, which adapt to different screen sizes, is thus made possible.

Here's what's special: The new HTML5 application can be developed and operated in parallel to your existing system - so there is no data migration and no downtime.

Migration workshop 

In a workshop, we offer companies an individual analysis of their applications. Together with the customer, we determine which processes are necessary to guarantee a smooth migration to HTML5 and to port the application.

Workshop agenda:

  • Application analysis on business level: functions of the previous application
  • Architecture and code analysis: Which components have been used so far?
  • Feasibility analysis: What could a future application look like?
  • Implementation proposal: porting and reprogramming
