ANTWERP, Belgium, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
IT-modernization expert migrates core applications at Israel's largest telecom group from legacy systems to modern IT environment.
Anubex, leader in automated software modernization, proudly announces the successful completion of a key legacy migration project at Bezeq, Israel's largest and leading telecommunications group.
Bezeq counts on maintaining a leading position in the market by modernizing its IT infrastructure and migrating the core business system - managing over 16 Mio of transactions per day! - from an IBM mainframe and IDMS database to a Linux environment and a relational Oracle database.
After a severe selection, Anubex and its local partner Next iT were chosen to migrate the over 100.000 complex ADS and Cobol programs, representing close to 10 Mio lines of code.
Anubex' typical automated modernization approach and proprietary testing tools allowed the teams from Bezeq and Anubex / Next iT to complete this entire migration project in only 20 months.
Louis Heymans, CEO of Anubex, comments: "We were able to exceed timing goals and stay within the budget. While our modernization solutions and unique methodology played a crucial role in the outcome of this project, we could only succeed with the trust from the Bezeq management team and the commitment of the experienced technical teams from Bezeq, Next iT and Anubex."
Eli Frank, Vice President of IT at Bezeq, says: "It truly felt like the Anubex/Next iT team was an integrated part of our team and we clearly shared the same goals!"
"By migrating to open systems, we eliminated an important cost and took an important step in our IT optimization process, allowing us to grow and adapt even quicker to future business changes. I'm convinced that our case study will be exemplary to other customers and modernization projects."
