15. ©2016 Avanade Inc. All Rights Reserved. AppZero Business Challenge • Support for Windows Server 2003 ended in July 2015 which left the client exposed to risks & increased support costs. • Provides end to end migration of server based workloads in an automated fashion. • Allows for decommissioning of Windows Server 2003 after workload migrations are complete. How Avanade Helped • Avanade performed an application discovery and migration utilising AppZero for critical business workloads Results Realized • Avoidance of costly CSA fees and realized lower operational and compliance risk. The migration also allowed for opportunities to modernize applications. AppZero is an application migration tool that facilitates moving applications from one server to another, in the datacentre or the Cloud. AppZero identifies and copies all executables, settings, and data associated with production applications and can also up-level applications to a newer Windows Server Operating System. Avanade is a preferred AppZero partner and has resources available in North America and other locations globally as part of the industrialized server migration factory. What is it?

20. © 2015 Avanade Inc. All Rights Reserved. 20 Business Goal Projects and Results Nuclear Energy Supplier Server 2003 Migration Migrated key applications using Avanade Infrastructure Modernization to avoid CSA costs Avanade performed an application discovery and migration, utilizing AppZero for critical business workloads. Using a right-shore model and leveraging an offshore team to migrate non-sensitive applications helped provide the client a best of breed solution at the right price. The client was able to avoid costly CSA fees and realize lower operational risk. They also used the migration to unlock new opportunities to modernize key applications within the business as well as reduce barriers to hybrid cloud entry. Support for Windows Server 2003 ended in July 2015. This left the client exposed to risk and increased support costs and maintenance agreements due to the end of life platform. The legacy environment limited innovation and complicated operational support for application on legacy less secure platforms This nuclear energy supplier had hundreds of applications and servers running on an outdated and unsupported Windows 2003 server platform. Many of these applications are business critical and sensitive given power regulation industry

21. © 2015 Avanade Inc. All Rights Reserved. 21 Business Goal Projects and Results Financial Services Provider Migrated key applications utilizing Avanade Application Modernization to avoid CSA costs Avanade performed application discovery, portfolio optimization, remediation and migration leveraging Accenture’s Portfolio Optimization tool. Working closely with the business and technical teams to clearly understand dependencies, criticalities, enabled us to define the best approach forward, which in many cases involved decommissioning or replacing many of the applications. The client was able to avoid costly CSA fees and realize lower operational risk. They also used the migration to unlock new opportunities to modernize key applications within the business as well as reduce barriers to hybrid cloud entry. Support for Windows Server 2003 ended in July 2015. This left the client exposed to risk and increased support costs and maintenance agreements due to the end of life platform. The legacy environment limited innovation and complicated operational support for application on legacy less secure platforms This financial services provider had hundreds of applications and servers running on an outdated and unsupported Windows 2003 server platform. Many of these applications were business critical but were homegrown and lacking adequate institutional knowledge.

22. © 2015 Avanade Inc. All Rights Reserved. 22 Business Goal Projects and Results DFDS, a Danish shipping company with 50 vessels and DKK 6.5 billion in revenue, depends on Phoenix, a bespoke Visual Basic 6.0 application to run its freight business. “We had a good feeling about Avanade and it turned out to be completely right. They were a good choice. They really delivered what they promised and even went a bit beyond it. We’d certainly choose Avanade again. They have been a good partner.” Gert Møller, CIO, DFDS Migrated Phoenix from VB6 to .NET - all 550,000 lines of code - leveraging ArtinSoft tools. With the offshore team delivering 94% of the migration work and project management being delivered locally, Avanade combined the best of both worlds: lower costs and high levels of local contact. Avanade delivered this on schedule & within budget which delivered cost savings to the clients vs rewriting the application as well as allowing DFDS’s own staff to concentrate on the immediate demands of the business. The new application is now again under Microsoft’s support umbrella. Support for VB6 ended in March 2008. This left DFDS exposed because they could not rely on Microsoft to fix bugs or solve problems and existing Apps have limitations with regards to adding new functionality. DFDS were also worried that they might not be able to recruit, retain and motivate great staff to work on out‐of‐date technology. Danish shipping company modernizes VB6 to .NET 550,000 lines of code modernized & delivered on-time & on-budget

23. © 2015 Avanade Inc. All Rights Reserved. 23 Business Goal Projects and Results Avanade designed a large part of the application using .NET technology leveraging unique toolsets (ACA.NET) in order to reduce development time. When completed, the project allowed AstraZeneca to communicate more effectively, and in a more timely manner, with customers & partners. It has also enabled them to increase their brand presence on the internet which has helped with their recruitment process. Astra Zeneca needed a design and implementation which allowed them to utilize their corporate internet site to: • Administer announcements for the Internet users or press users, • Managing of Human Resources relations with the Internet users. They needed this project completed in very short timeframe, using a .NET environment. The Strategy and Development Department of AstraZeneca France Department wanted to refresh its corporate internet site so that it could interact efficiently with customers (general public, patients, press, future employees). Helping AstraZeneca modernize corporate internet site Legacy to latest .NET modernization project

24. © 2015 Avanade Inc. All Rights Reserved. 24 Business Goal Projects and Results Avanade helped the customer design, build, and deploy a Microsoft .NET based application. The application will utilize an online auction software development kit and un-managed C++ code in conjunction with the Windows API, ATL and COM to create an application that meets the customer’s requirements. The application will allow users to go directly to the online auction to bid on items being displayed. The customer’s primary challenge was creating a clean user interface that would be built in Microsoft Windows. They lacked the experience to design a unique- looking, efficient Windows application. They also faced challenges on operational costs, lack of standardisation & current ticker has unacceptable levels of processor utilisation. Digonex manages the delicate balance between revenue goals and customer loyalty. Digonex ‘s solutions have been successfully deployed across a variety of industries and client contexts. Helping Digonex design a new business application Creating a clean user friendly application for Windows
