Advanced has signed a new reseller agreement with GT Software, a US based specialist in IBM mainframe modernisation.
Under the agreement, Advanced will be the exclusive UK partner for the delivery and support of the company’s ﬂagship Ivory Suite application modernisation solution.
GT Software’s no-code, drag-and-drop solution for creating API integrations for IBM mainframes strengthens Advanced’s offering for organisations running important applications on IBM mainframes and makes it easier for them to integrate digital projects alongside legacy mainframe applications.
Application modernisation has become a core area of growth for Advanced, which in March 2018 acquired Information Balance, a developer of IT solutions that enable large-scale application development and migration across mainstream technology platforms.
Tim Jones, Managing Director of Application Modernisation at Advanced, said: “We’ve had significant success helping organisations integrate or migrate from legacy systems, such as VMS and VME, to more modern technology environments. But, as digital transformation accelerates across all organisations, we recognise that IBM mainframe integration can help broaden our portfolio. GT Software’s integration tool will help us accelerate our application modernisation plans and boost the value we can offer to customers, allowing them to extend the value of their existing investment in IBM mainframe systems.”
