BluePhoenix Solutions Signs $2 Million Deal to Deliver Modernized Management System to Singapore Government Agency
HERZLIYA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BluePhoenix Solutions (BPHX), the leading provider of value-driven legacy IT modernization solutions, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with a large systems integrator to migrate a Singapore government application from a legacy mainframe platform to Java, Oracle, and Sun technology.
BluePhoenix has been hired to convert a Dec-Alpha Adabas/Natural environment to a Java/Oracle environment running on Sun hardware. Legacy Modernization projects like this one are popular right now because they have been postponed for so long and our technology automates the process of migration to either a Java or .Net environment saving customers a significant amount of money, says Shimon Bar-Kama, CEO of BluePhoenix. He went on to say that with Oracles acquisition of Sun, he is seeing a noticeable increase in this type of conversion project. A significant part of our go-to market strategy in the future is to partner with leading systems integrators as we did on this project and help deliver more successful outcomes on time and under budget, added Bar-Kama.
BluePhoenix is targeting customers to assist them in addressing the problem of having legacy applications trapped in costly environments where web integration, customization and other application integration is very difficult. In the past, enterprises with legacy applications looking to migrate to modern platforms only had two choices; hire an outsourcing company to convert code manually where mistakes are common, or pay outrageous fees in maintenance contracts. BluePhoenix offers a best-of-both-worlds solution which automates the process of regenerating an application in the new infrastructure with virtually no mistakes and in a very timely manner.
