Front-End Modernization For Legacy Enterprise Application [Case Study]

09 Sep 2020

User experience is the most significant focus for organizations in the present day and age. And, it has been improving exponentially with the emergence of new devices and technologies.

And, with Microsoft announcing the end of support for one of its pioneer front-end technologies – Silverlight, we are witnessing enterprises are looking to migrate their solution to robust and highly sustainable technologies, like Angular and more.

Learn how Rishabh Software helped a US-based IT company to become more agile and efficient by transforming their legacy application with the power of new technologies.

Project Overview

Our client provides end-to-end information management solutions and services to governments & schools with industry-leading technology. Their existing platform was developed using Silverlight and had significant performance issues. As part of their digital transformation strategy, they were seeking front-end technology up-gradation & enterprise application modernization. It would help streamline business workflow and increase productivity.

The solution would:

  • Migrate existing system to the cutting-edge Angular technology
  • Include advanced features and customized existing ones to meet end-user requirements better and enhance the experience with faster application performance.


  • Limited/no cross-platform support with a static UI across a range of devices
  • Lack of support from Microsoft for legacy Silverlight technology
  • Lowering the total cost of ownership with migration to a modern front end technology based on complexity
  • Difficulty in understanding and mapping existing features from Silverlight to Angular migration with troubleshooting
