BluePhoenix Solutions said that it has been awarded a $1.2m modernisation contract from a business process and information technology services partner. The contract is the third contract from this partner over the last year.
Under the agreement, BluePhoenix will modernise a Cobol application that is used by city agencies in the USA to a Unix platform and will modernise the Adabas legacy database to an Oracle database.
According to BluePhoenix, the two main reasons for this modernisation are to reduce costs of maintaining the legacy application and create greater platform flexibility that will allow increased market potential.
BluePhoenix provides modernisation services to companies such as automotive, banking and financial services, insurance, manufacturing, and retail. Its portfolio includes a suite of tools and services from global IT asset assessment and impact analysis to automated database and application migration, rehosting, and renewal.
Yaron Tchwella, CEO of BluePhoenix Solutions, said: “We are encouraged by the growth we are seeing in repeat business with our partners as it gives us the confidence that we have a compelling value proposition. Our leading field proven Adabas modernisation solution helps our partners to migrate to state of the art technologies in the most cost effective and efficient way.”
