WebSphere Application Server Consulting and Support

Do you have a chaotic application server environment? Have third party apps that you can’t change and require a certain version of WAS? Did your key admin just leave?

We can help you as we many other customers. Those customers include large financial services companies, retailers, manufacturers, and even small and mid-size businesses. We offer several support options that can fit your company.

Why you need support

Expired Versions

IBM has discontinued support for WebSphere Application Server (WAS) versions 7.0 and earlier. If you have a critical outage, IBM may not be able to help you. 

Lost Revenue

Do you have a third party app that runs on a specific (and outdated) version of WebSphere App Server? How do you manage outages without losing revenue?

Lack of Skills

In today’s labor market, it can be difficult to find skilled resources to handle a typical WebSphere App Server environment. The more complex and environment, the more skills you need. Can your team handle it alone?

Security Constraints

Is your WebSphere App Server environment secure? Have you applied the latest patches? Do you require PCI Compliance? When was your last security audit, and by whom?

WebSphere Application Server Extended Support

IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS) is often used by many third party vendors to support their custom applications, such as banking applications, ERP applications, payroll, or medical billing applications. It is common for a company to customize or tailor the third party application to meet their corporate needs. If you have customized those applications, it may be impossible to upgrade to the latest without extensive costs. In some cases, the third party has gone out of business, or can no longer support the customizations that you’ve made. Now that IBM has discontinued support for version  WebSphere App Server version 7 in April of 2018, your organization is now at a choke point. This is where the experts at Strongback can help you. Such services that Strongback provides include the following:

  • Thread and JVM Tuning
  • Application error troubleshooting
  • Automate Java EE application deployment
  • WAS scripting and script support
  • App Server upgrade, and fix pack installation
  • IBM HTTP Server setup and customization
  • Clustering and High Availability Support

Strongback can troubleshoot and remediate your customized applications so you can upgrade WAS, and get back on a support schedule.
