Link Likes look for System i Modernization
December 4, 2007 Alex Woodie
Link Computer, a Pennsylvania IT consultancy, has partnered with the Australian software vendor looksoftware for its System i application modernization tools, the companies announced last week.
Many of Link’s 350 customers in the mid-Pennsylvania region use the System i server, and are now considering their options for modernizing their key applications without extensive redevelopment or replacement, says Tim Link, president and CEO of Link Computer
Link assisted its customers in this modernization quest, which had been mostly fruitless, up to this point. “We’ve trialed all the key alternatives in a practical evaluation and implementation process,” Link says.
Then Link checked out looksoftware’s Dynamic Environment, a suite of tools for modernizing System i and System z applications. Link’s company was impressed with what it found. “We concluded that looksoftware’s products offer the fastest and easiest way to develop and implement real modernization results through reuse, instead of writing more code,” he says.
Link and looksoftware are already working on a couple of projects together, and the future looks promising, says Pete Isaksson, a looksoftware executive based in Atlanta, Georgia. “Link’s large team of consultants are not only System i specialists, but also have strong expertise in multi-platform integration, Notes, and SharePoint, which are all important for enterprise application modernization,” Isaksson says.
