PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OpenLegacy (http://openlegacy.com/) today announced that it has been recognized by Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, as a Cool Vendor in Integration.
OpenLegacy provides an open-source platform that dramatically reduces the time, effort, and cost required to integrate legacy systems with Web, mobile, and cloud. Each year, Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports evaluating these innovative vendors and their products and services. Read the full report: “Cool Vendors in Integration, 2015,” authored by Gartner analysts Eric Thoo, Massimo Pezzini, and Kimihiko Iijima, 15 April 2015.
“Phenomena such as cloud, mobile, social, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are forcing directors of integration to rethink their strategies, which spurs attention to and experimentation with innovative technologies,” states the report. “The acquisition of established commercial integration tooling can be expensive. Open-source software (OSS) seeks to augment integration support for legacy mainframe and midrange environments.”
OpenLegacy’s platform extends back-end applications and data to modern systems of engagement. OpenLegacy’s automated open-source DIY tools put the power of integration into enterprises’ hands without any vendor lock in. Importantly, no changes are required to the legacy system, so the process is risk-free.
“We’re incredibly honored to be recognized as a Cool Vendor by Gartner,” said Romi Stein, CEO and Co-Founder of OpenLegacy. “From the start, we have focused on transforming businesses quickly with an innovative, cost-effective solution to help connect their midrange and mainframe systems to the modern applications they need in order to stay competitive. We believe this recognition is a very real validation of our solution. We are also especially excited to be in such good company with Boardwalktech, TechConnect IT Solutions, and Zapier.”
