Gupta Technologies, a global provider of application development, database and migration software, today announced an Alliance partnership with Fujitsu. Through this partnership, Fujitsu will offer customers Gupta’s Composer Technologies migration software for modernizing Oracle Forms and Lotus Notes applications. Gupta will leverage its innovative software and expertise with Fujitsu’s legacy modernization offerings to create the synergy for increased market presence on an international basis. “Gupta recognizes the growing demand by customers to retain the intrinsic value contained within their legacy applications and modernize them to more contemporary technologies and platforms instead of rewriting them from scratch or replacing them with commercial off-the-shelf solutions,” said Frank Verardi, General Manager of Gupta Technologies. “Our Alliance partnership with Fujitsu enables us to market our complementary and proven application migration portfolio to a broader base of customers worldwide.” Fujitsu, a leading provider of customer-focused information technology solutions for the global market place, has initiated sales opportunities for the Composer portfolio in EMEA and Asia Pacific. Composer Technologies, the migration business unit of Gupta Technologies, has participated in the Fujitsu Forum and various marketing campaigns, and is the only Fujitsu Alliance Partner for Oracle Forms and Lotus Notes application modernization. Through an active Alliance partnership, customers will benefit from automated conversion technology and a proven migration methodology that will deliver a modern application ready for testing, customer enhancements and production. Annette Kuhn, Head of Alliance Program, Fujitsu Technology Solutions commented, “Fujitsu’s Legacy Modernization capabilities enable organizations to leverage years of investment in software assets, and to deliver more from IT budgets and reduce the risk of implementing new technologies. Gupta and Fujitsu are now extending their cooperation of many years to include the Composer solutions as a logical next step to add value to our customers.”
In addition to the Composer products, the Alliance partnership includes Gupta’s Team Developer .NET application development software and SQLBase relational database. Both products will be promoted through the Fujitsu Business Solutions Catalog listing and included in cross alliance marketing programs and media campaigns.About Gupta Technologies Gupta Technologies, a Daegis Inc.
