Advanced adds IBM mainframe modernization solutions to its product portfolio
15 July 2014 – Advanced (formerly Transoft, Inc.), a market leading provider of data migration, consolidation and warehousing systems, has signed a strategic partnership agreement with BOS Software (BOS), a specialist developer of IBM mainframe integration solutions. Advanced will now be providing its customers with tcVISION and tcACCESS from BOS, both of which are used by organizations worldwide to leverage the value of legacy platforms and data.
The partnership brings together two companies with a combined 50 years of experience in helping organizations migrate critical, legacy applications and data from mainframes to modern platforms. By doing so, organizations reduce the high cost of maintaining ageing infrastructure and benefit from enhanced data visibility and improved business intelligence.
Paul Holland, Vice President of Advanced (American office) comments: “BOS and Advanced share a commitment to helping organizations utilize data and applications that may well have been in place for many years and which are increasingly costly to maintain. Our solutions reduce these costs and provide companies with a rapid return on investment by improving operational efficiencies and access to business critical data.”
“By adding tcVISION and tcACCESS to our solutions portfolio, we can now provide legacy data and modernization solutions irrespective of which platform a client may be using.”
tcVISION is a powerful mainframe data replication and synchronization system and tcACCESS enables the real-time bi-directional exchange of information between IBM mainframes and Linux, Microsoft Windows and UNIX based systems. The solutions are used by more than 500 installations worldwide including the Baloise Group, the SIA Group and EADS Group.
Elisabeth Schwarz, CEO of BOS Software says: "We are happy to have Advanced as our partner. Advanced is very experienced in all areas of application modernization and data integration. Its intimate market knowledge will guarantee a successful partnership and we are looking forward to a long standing relationship with the company."
Advanced works with a large network of resellers, system integrators, independent software vendors and technical partners in order to deliver its innovative data modernization solutions. Advanced’s clients include The Gap, L’Oreal, Boeing and Balfour Beatty.
