Importing a Legacy Application with Arca+ Software

Posted by:

Importing a legacy IVR application – from EVIP – into the Arca+ Eclipse plug-in. The actual import “magic” is at 2:07.



About the Author:

Arca+ from Arca Software splits the design and development of an application from the platform that it runs on so that as new technology arises, the application investment is protected. Commoditization of technology has left many companies stuck with high annual-support fees associated with legacy systems or being forced to redevelop their applications on open standard-based systems. All of these options are costly and do not leverage the initial investment in creating the applications. Arca+ lowers the cost barrier and allows companies a new way forward. Arca Software is a wholly owned subsidiary of Blue Flame Industries LLC.

    What types of legacy code can import this tool automatically? I work with several VRU platforms and I’m looking for a new IDE to develop portable and platform independent applications.

    Kind regards,

      This post shows code being imported from a legacy Edify EVIP application. Intervoice IQ Talk is also currently supported for imports and we are adding support for more platforms.

      Code can be output to any VXML 2.0 compatible platform in addition to all Voxeo platforms and Convergys Interaction composer.

      The Arca+ design environment allows you to create applications from a clean sheet as well as modifying applications that have been imported from legacy systems. This way you can create applications indpendant of your target runtime.
