Speedware Offers Time Machine® Software to Legacy Modernization Customers

MONTREAL, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ – Speedware, a provider of IT modernization solutions, today announced that it has entered into a worldwide reseller agreement with SolutionSoft Systems, Inc., a leading provider of Intelligent Data Optimization (IDO) solutions. Speedware will be reselling Solution-Soft’s Time Machine® software to legacy modernization and migration customers.

Speedware provides modernization solutions that resolve the current challenges facing organizations operating critical business applications on legacy platforms such as mainframes and midrange servers. These solutions replace aging computing platforms with more modern, agile and flexible infrastructure and transform older, legacy computing languages to the latest technologies. Successful legacy modernization projects can result in technology consolidation and simplification, less dependency on diminishing legacy skill sets, increased business agility and lower operational costs.

Solution-Soft’s Time Machine product provides virtual clocks to facilitate application testing, what-if analyses and time zone adjustment. It is a proven solution widely utilized by Fortune 100 and global 500 companies. Time Machine saves hardware & software costs, boosts engineering team productivity and ensures large scale software projects finish on time and under budget.

As legacy modernization projects involve an organization’s business-critical applications, testing becomes an integral phase of the project, ensuring that the applications run seamlessly after modernization. Transaction events triggered by system time are one of many basic elements used in testing application validity. The Time Machine software lowers risk when migrating applications by demonstrating the actual performance of the application at whatever date and time is chosen.

“The addition of Time Machine is a natural fit and a great value-add feature for our legacy modernization projects,” said Christine McDowell, Manager of Strategic Alliances at Speedware. “Financial institutions, insurance and government are examples of industries where transactions occur that are event-based critical. Now Speedware customers can benefit from simplified and faster testing by using Time Machine,” she added.

Michael Morrison, Director of Business Development at Solution-Soft agrees, “Customers using Time Machine can expect to reduce time, resources and expenses related to testing critical time events. There is a natural fit and synergy between Solution-Soft’s product and Speedware’s customer base. We are excited to be working with Speedware to introduce our software application to legacy modernization and migration customers.”
