Astadia and Infinite Corporation announce a partnership to assist clients currently operating large Enterprise Applications and Databases on IBM System I (NYSE:IBM) midrange computers to migrate to the Cloud Platform of their choice. This includes the original AS/400 family of midrange systems. In today’s environment, many organizations have a “Cloud First” strategy for deploying business applications. Since most of the important business applications reside on midrange and mainframe systems, moving these applications and databases to the Cloud requires expert skills and technology. Astadia’s partnership with Infinite Corporation offers midrange clients a Replatforming option, whereby applications and databases written in RPG and COBOL can be moved to Windows and Linux, recompiled, and operated in the AWS, Azure and Google Cloud platforms.
“With the wave of Cloud computing, organizations are rapidly moving their applications and databases. The Cloud enables incredible software innovation and developer productivity, while only charging the client for the resources they consume” said Scott G. Silk, Chairman and CEO of Astadia.
“Infinite Corporation brings their Infinite i platform to the partnership. The Infinite i platform offers clients the opportunity to move RPG and COBOL applications to the Cloud platform of their choice. By using Infinite i as the platform, clients can Replatform IBM System I applications and databases by simply recompiling the programs in the Cloud” said Mr.Silk.
“Astadia brings the perfect balance of skillsets and relationships to the Infinite Partner Program. Their project management and development teams have deep experience in migrating legacy applications with many of the same global Cloud providers which are currently providing Infinite technology. The extension of support, training and joint marketing to the Astadia team was a very easy and natural decision”, said Bruce Acacio, CEO, Infinite Corporation. “The amazingly fast adoption of the Cloud with the concurrent decline of the IBM I on-premise market has meant dynamic growth for Infinite. Expanding our capabilities through highly skilled partners is critical to meeting demand”, continued Mr. Acacio.
