Greg Lambert

Greg Lambert is the former ChangeBASE chairman and current CEO of Application Readiness. Their only product is Readiness, the first cloud-based application compatibility assessment and conversion software. Over 12 years in the making, Readiness has been checked and processed applications against hundreds of thousand rules. Greg saw how expensive and complicated the infrastructure required for application compatibility, patch impact assessment, conversion and remediation was. This, and the fact that applications are evolving faster than ever convinced him that Readiness must be entirely cloud-based, so there’s never any infrastructure to buy or maintain, and rules are kept up-to-date automatically.
