Fresche Legacy's IT Modernization Road Map Eliminates Mainframe Environment for Major North American Railway

Reducing Costs, "IT Can Make You Smile" (June 20, 2012)

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 06/20/12 -- Fresche Legacy's recently completed detailed IT migration modernization roadmap of mission-critical IT applications will eliminate the mainframe environment at a major North American railway providing $10 million in cost savings and improved performance.

Fresche Legacy's comprehensive plan envisions retiring the mainframe environment by migrating more than 100 applications representing more than 1000 MIPS to a commodity computing platform using a Linux platform and a Sybase database. Commodity computing platforms provide high functionality and high performance at a competitive price. The 100 plus applications support multiple business processes in major functional areas. This IT transformation will enhance the railway's technical infrastructure, reduce costs and improve the efficiency of its IT applications.

The North American railway business is highly competitive. Most companies depend upon robust, state-of-the-art IT platforms to give them a competitive advantage. This technology helps in all aspects of the business including optimizing the scheduling and routing of trains and cars as well as ensuring that rolling stock is maintained with the correct frequency.

Fresche Legacy was contracted by the railway as a strategic advisor to perform a mainframe migration discovery, assessment and analysis. This analysis provided the customer with a clear understanding of the challenges including; inventory of objects, re-hosting requirements, re-hosting tools, effort, cost and timeline required to accomplish the mainframe migration. Fresche's extensive migration modernization roadmap convinced the customer that this migration and re-hosting would create significant value by helping the railway more effectively meet its short and long-term business goals.
