New capabilities simplify legacy migration initiatives; Help reduce cost, risks and accelerates migration
Bangalore, India - June 30, 2010:
Wipro Technologies, the global IT services business of Wipro Limited (NYSE:WIT), today announced the launch of consulting and re-hosting implementation service offerings for migration of applications running on legacy environments to Oracle’s Tuxedo platform. These new services leverage the Oracle Tuxedo product portfolio to accelerate and simplify legacy migrations.
Legacy modernization is an important customer priority, given the large investment customers have in business-critical legacy applications. In an environment of constrained IT budgets, companies can no longer afford to spend majority of their IT budgets on maintaining legacy infrastructure, which crowds out investments in new business priorities. Re-hosting legacy applications – moving them intact from the legacy environment and migrating them to open systems without impacting business logic or data is an attractive migration approach. It can significantly reduce the cost, time and risk of migration and can enable customers to begin realizing savings within 12-18 months.
These new offerings enable customers to benefit from Wipro’s strong abilities to deliver migration projects on the Oracle stack using industrialized methodology and automated tooling for predictable, on-time, and on-budget delivery. Wipro's specialized Centre of Excellence for Legacy Migration provides skilled resources, best migration practices and reusable rehosting and modernization frameworks to accelerate legacy migration and modernization initiatives. Oracle proven technology gives customers the confidence to migrate mission-critical applications.
Oracle Tuxedo Application Re-hosting Workbench 11g and Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch 11g can help dramatically reduce migration cost, risk, project length and complexity with most legacy applications re-hosted on open systems ‘as-is’. Customers can confidently migrate their applications to enable significant reductions in the cost of running online and batch applications while protecting their investment in business logic and data, and improving scalability and business continuity.
“Wipro is excited to work with Oracle to provide service offerings for migration of legacy applications to Oracle's robust and proven stack,” said K R Sanjiv, Senior Vice President, Business Technology Services, Wipro Technologies. "The new solution will help reduce the change involved in the migration process, allowing us to deliver more effective migration services. Hence, our customers can now see migration results more quickly, realize savings, and leverage these savings towards additional modernization initiatives.”
"Oracle Tuxedo Application Re-hosting Workbench 11g and Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch 11g can dramatically streamline the migration process by providing an automated re-hosting toolset that enables more effective migration services with greater predictability, lower risk, and faster ROI,” said Frank Xiong, Vice President of software development, Oracle. “Wipro can now help deliver migration projects faster and more effectively to our joint customers. This helps customers quickly achieve significant cost reductions, improved performance, flexibility, reliability, and scalability of Oracle Tuxedo and related product offerings.”
