"By using isCOBOL APS, we can offer SaaS without having to install proprietary software and platform-specific client software. In addition, Veryant lets us update our existing applications and development products very affordably."
René van Oevelen, software architect, i-Modulas Software BV
i-Modulas Software knew it was becoming increasingly important to offer Java technology and a user-friendly GUI with the company’s trusted ERP software, yet remain platform independent. Both modern technology and multiple platforms were going to be necessary for the company to continue growing; without these options, customers might turn to other ERP software vendors. As the company considered options, it found that only Veryant’s isCOBOL Application Platform Suite (APS) was able to help retain i-Modulas’ valuable legacy COBOL applications and offer its customers the modern technology advantages of Java on multiple platforms.
i-Modulas wanted a solution that was platform independent, provided access via the Internet, offered a friendly GUI, and would enable a speedy migration.
isCOBOL technology enabled i-Modulas to quickly move from using cumbersome CGI programs to ‘next generation’ Java Servlets for its Web programming needs. Java Servlets provided i-Modulas a stateful, multi-threaded solution that improved end user response times across the Internet. In addition to meeting i-Modulas’ stated criteria, Veryant offered a very easy-to-use and affordable solution that would provide a stable future for the company’s software.
