Do you need guidance on decommissioning your Ruby on Rails application?

It might seem weird for a company that focuses on helping organizations with existing Ruby on Rails applications improve and become more maintainable to also offer a service that helps them retire their apps.

There comes a time in almost every software application when it reaches the end of its lifecycle. While we don't advocate for big rewrites, we understand that some custom software projects no longer provide the value they once did.

If your organization is considering this, it can be helpful to bring in a team like Planet Argon to guide you through the process to avoid any negative on your organization's data, security, or reputation.

Digital Marketing Director at West Dermatology

While their approach to customer serivce and client relations is great, what I actually found most impressive was their ability to help develop solutions in creative ways. None of the complex content issues were a problem, and the team was always open to new information/new requirements regardless of where we were in the process.
