While this cycle is an established part of product development worldwide, 2Ring understands the difficulties many companies face in managing end-of-sale and end-of-life. As a result, this information is intended to assist customers to transition from an Affected Software Program Release and help them understand how 2Ring can assist in migrating to alternative 2Ring platforms and technology.
