Case Study

Updating Legacy Applications.

How Imaginet helped a leading multi-disciplinary environmental sciences, planning, and engineering consulting firm update its legacy application that would sync users and passwords to a 3rd party FTP System.

Let's Talk!


Custom SPFx Webpart for FTP Account Sync

The client, a leading multi-disciplinary environmental science, planning, and engineering consulting firm was looking for a replacement for an existing application that would sync users and passwords to a 3rd party FTP System (ExaVault). The Existing system was hosted on a legacy platform and was using a v1 API that had a hard sunset date. Imaginet created a new tool with similar functionality hosted in their SharePoint environment that would use the new v2 API that would continue functioning after the sunset date.

The Client and Imaginet had already engaged in several successful initiatives regarding SharePoint, so they had an existing trust and wanted to utilize us for this new tool. Also, it fits nicely into their SharePoint system as it had replaced the existing system that housed the old application. Imaginet was able to successfully complete the application development and assist with transitioning the Client to the new system before the sunset date. There were no issues noted after go-live. Since this application dealt with Users and Password security was a concern, the application was secured using an Azure AD App to restrict access.
