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.”

Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps ...
Digital Transformation is well underway with many applications already on the cloud utilizing agile and devops methodologies. Unfortunately, application security has been an afterthought and data breaches have become a daily occurrence. Security is not one individual or one's team responsibility. Raphael Reich will introduce you to DevSecOps concepts and outline how to seamlessly interweave security principles across your software development lifecycle and application lifecycle management. With ...
Two apparently distinct movements are in the process of disrupting the world of enterprise application development: DevOps and Low-Code. DevOps is a cultural and organizational shift that empowers enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker – in particular, hand-coded software. Low-Code platforms, in contrast, provide a technology platform and visual tooling that empower enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker -- with little or no hand-coding required. ...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addres...
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...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
