2014-02-12 16:54:55 - New Migration Projects
Senden, Germany and San Francisco, CA – February, 12th 2014. innoWake continues on its successful path into the new year: new customers are signing up for application migration. Two insurance companies decide to use innoWake’s unique solutions to migrate their mission critical mainframe applications. They aim to continue development on modern platforms which allows them to retain the investment in the existing business software. While each company has different reasons to migrate it boils down to two main drivers: exorbitant costs on the current platform and a lack of technical talent for the mainframe platform. innoWake brings to the table a solution that combines low risk for project implementation, easily maintainable application code, and no need for code freeze throughout.
This benefit in particular eases even the most risk averse IT decision maker. “We are happy to see that the first insurance companies are signing up for this solution. Even though we are not technical tied to a particular vertical, this proves how transparent and low risk the approach is”, says Bjoern Langmack, Managing Director at innoWake. The solution gets ahead of the pack by allowing, at the core, a 1-for-1 migration of Natural/COBOL/PL1 code to Java or .NET that can be maintained by both legacy developers and Java/.NET experts. This also reduces the dependency on third party vendors.
