Product and support lifecycle
Unicon reserves the right to make changes to the time frames based on business needs or technical requirements.
The Unicon products eLux and Scout Enterprise Management Suite pass through three life-cycle phases. Each phase is induced by a milestone.
The life-cycle of Unicon products is driven by the customer requirements for new features and constantly evolving technologies including enhancements to existing products.
