A Heritage of Serving Developers
Progress® Telerik® tools have always been about empowering developers to do their best work in less time. Over the past 15 years, we’ve expanded our product portfolio to keep pace with the latest technologies, trends and innovations. As developers’ needs change and evolve, we adapt our offerings accordingly, by both adding new products for new technologies, as well as retiring products that have served their purpose, thus ensuring that we are focused in investing our efforts in the products that provide the most value to you as a developer.
Why is Telerik Platform Retired?
What Does This Mean to Me?
As of May 10th, all Telerik Platform services are retired. If you have not yet migrated your application or need a backup copy of your Backend or Analytics data, please write to ￼TelerikPlatformEOL@progress.com￼. It is important you use one of the e-mail addresses associated with your Telerik Account. If you are requesting your app signing certificate, please also send the certificate thumbprint (SHA-1) as a security measure.
If you are interested in NativeScript, you can take a free introductory video course on Upgrading Cordova Applications to NativeScript.
What Are My Options?
Kinvey is a leader in Backend-as-a-Service. Kinvey addresses your backend needs like push notifications, offline data storage, data synchronization for occasionally connected devices and the ability to independently develop your frontend and backend systems.

Telerik has endeavored to provide useful advice within the migration guides indexed here and in some cases has identified a few of the more prominent alternative technologies generally available within today’s marketplace. However, neither Telerik nor its affiliates offers any guarantees or assurances regarding the migration methods or technologies described/referenced within the guides or the above table or their suitability for your particular purposes. We encourage you to use the time between now and May 10, 2018 to investigate and determine the suitability of these and other methods/alternatives to your needs. The use of any migration functionality made available via or in conjunction with Telerik Platform is subject to the terms and conditions of the General Terms of Service for Progress Telerik Platform and any applicable Additional Terms (all of which are accessible here: https://www.telerik.com/purchase/license-agreements).
