Fresche Legacy is making a name for itself in the IBM midrange business. Today the company announced it is acquiring looksoftware, one of several successful third-party application development tool vendors. The transaction creates a unique modernization-focused company. One year ago, Fresche Legacy purchased Databorough, a company with strong database technology. What’s taking shape is a company with an expanded modernization strategy designed to help companies solve modernization puzzles.
The marriage of application modernization and database modernization is something new for the IBM i software community, where application modernization has gained a foothold while database modernization struggled for attention.
