Ensono acquires ExperSolve to expand mainframe modernisation services

Ensono, an end-to-end managed services provider, has announced its acquisition of ExperSolve, a mainframe modernisation company. The addition of ExperSolve further expands Ensono’s mainframe optimisation and modernisation services.

Organisations running mainframe applications face obstacles to modernisation, often due to a shortage of expert staff, complex dependencies, and outdated interfaces, to name a few. Depending on business and technical requirements, it may make sense to migrate the applications off the mainframe to a private or public cloud or modernise the application on the mainframe. ExperSolve’s capabilities help with either path.

ExperSolve’s proprietary software toolchain converts COBOL and other mainframe programming languages to modern languages such as Java and C#, so applications can be migrated off the mainframe onto private or public clouds.

In addition, ExperSolve can optimise and modernise on the mainframe, by, for example, updating legacy databases to DB2 to optimize utilization and batch processing times. By modernizing on the mainframe, clients can extend their investment and ensure they are getting the most from their mainframe applications.

“A key focus for Ensono is its clients’ digital preparedness and long-term success, which is why ExperSolve aligns well with Ensono,” said ExperSolve Founder and President, Noah Ross, who takes on a new role as Managing Principal at Ensono. “Both companies are dedicated to innovation that will help our clients meet their business outcomes and stay relevant in today’s enterprise. We look forward to supporting Ensono clients by expanding its mainframe modernisation services and capabilities.”

“Application modernisation remains a bigger-picture and longer-term IT objective at many organisations, motivated by the promise of modern architectures and technologies to deliver performance, cost and efficiency benefits,” said Liam Eagle, Research Director at 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence, in a recent report. “These efforts are driving cloud adoption and migration across enterprises as organizations see cloud platforms and their component services as a means of modernising legacy applications.”
