GT Software Teams with Primeur to Extend Reach in Europe

Ivory is an integrated toolset that enables rapid integration of mainframe assets

GT Software, a provider of integration solutions that leverage mainframe resources, on Tuesday announced an international distribution agreement for the company’s Ivory Service Architect product line with Primeur. A multinational producer of middleware solutions for distributed and heterogeneous IT systems, Primeur will represent the GT Software Ivory solutions suite in the Italian and Spanish markets.

Primeur is a leader in managed file transfer, end-to-end security and governance. With more than 500 customers worldwide, it has branches and distributors in Europe, United States, South America and Asia Pacific.

Ivory is an integrated toolset that enables rapid integration of mainframe assets leveraging companies' investments in applications and data. A proven solution in the most demanding of applications infrastructures, Ivory enables developers to quickly and easily create and publish Web services, developing right-sized composite business services with little or no training.

Ivory supports deployment of mainframe-based Web services across the widest range of platforms, including zLinux and zIIP and zAAP specialty engines, giving organizations broad flexibility in where they choose to house integration-related workload.

“The development, deployment, administration and management of enterprise applications integration must be a primary goal of today's IT organizations. These enterprises require robust, proven solutions in order to succeed,” said Paolo Chieregatti, Mainframe Competence Center Leader at Primeur. "With our concentration on service oriented architecture and Web services, we only seek partnerships with companies that have a history of success in mainframe integration. With Ivory Service Architect, GT Software leads the way in enabling the integration of legacy mainframe applications with Web services, and they represent an outstanding opportunity for expansion.”

Primeur is an IBM Premier Business Partner particularly active on IBM WebSphere, Tivoli, Rational and Information Management platforms. In addition, it provides software and services for SOA (Service Oriented Architecture), communication middleware, legacy application integration and data security.

“Primeur’s in-depth mainframe experience, strong customer base in the financial services industry, and intimate knowledge of the underpinnings of Web services, make them an ideal partner,” said Wilson Rains, vice president of global alliances for GT Software. “Paolo Chieregatti's white papers on CICS and Web services are referenced worldwide, and firmly establish Primeur as a source of expertise. Primeur is well trusted in Europe as a mainframe integration technology innovator, and we are excited to partner with them to bring the Ivory mainframe integration solutions to this market.”

Microservices Articles
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, discussed how to use Kubernetes to set up a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace. H...
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
SYS-CON Events announced today the Kubernetes and Google Container Engine Workshop, being held November 3, 2016, in conjunction with @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop led by Sebastian Scheele introduces participants to Kubernetes and Google Container Engine (GKE). Through a combination of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, students learn the key concepts and practices for deploying and maintainin...
