Fujitsu and EZLegacy Collaborate to Extend VME Cloud Capability

Fujitsu UK & Ireland

July 08, 2011

Fujitsu and EZLegacy have agreed to work together to widen the capabilities of EZSource (a suite of tools for application portfolio management, analysis and metric based reporting) to include support for VME (Virtual Machine Environment) applications in order to ensure that VME has cloud capability. These will specifically be for VME COBOL, Application Master and SCL source code. It will provide the same high levels of applications analysis, measurement and management capabilities available within the existing EZSource product suite and provide significant reductions in development cycles.

Increasingly, Fujitsu is putting infrastructure and service management for VME applications in the cloud. This has the effect of modernising these processes and helping to ease the management and ongoing running of VME applications. This collaboration with EZLegacy is a key component in extending the long-term viability and agility of VME applications.

Fujitsu provides a full range of essential VME support and maintenance services to customers in both private and public sector this includes a VME Applications as-a-Service cloud-based solution.

In addition to detailed VME-based applications analysis, EZSource will also provide the ability to understand and analyse cross-platform transactions – for example, where an existing VME application is integrated with distributed or SAP-based solutions. As most clients have a mixed applications environment, the solution will provide a single platform to provide analysis and management capabilities across their entire applications portfolio.

George Allt, head of Fujitsu’s VME Centre of Excellence commented, “We have made a commitment to our VME customers to support their applications for the long term and to provide a choice for the future through innovative enhancement, integration and modernisation capabilities. We believe that partnering with EZLegacy, as a best of breed solution in applications analysis, will help us provide significant value for our VME customers as part of the VME Applications as-a-Service cloud-based solution”.

Simon Jennings, VP Sales EZLegacy commented “we are excited that these new capabilities will help extend the life and business value of VME-based applications, and help organisations understand and manage their overall applications portfolio. We look forward to working with Fujitsu to provide the benefits of EZSource to a new set of customers”.
