Interactive Objects Software and OCS Consulting forge Partnership in UK

Taking MoRE Solutions to new international markets / Established German Software Vendor expands into UK market as part of its International expansion strategy

(PresseBox) (Freiburg, ) Interactive Objects GmbH, the specialist supplier of the MoRE legacy maintenance, analysis and modernization technolgy, has announced its first UK consulting and implementation partnership with OCS Consulting plc. After successful years in its home markets Interactive Objects is pursuing an expansion strategy to take its well proven MoRe solutions to new international markets.

The MoRE solution directly addresses the challenges of maintaining and modernizing legacy applications written in old technologies such as Cobol, PL/1 and proprietary 4GLs regardless of whether the maintenance is outsourced, done offshore or inhouse. A key part of the expansion strategy is to join efforts with a very selective set of technology and implementation partners, so that Interactive Objects can provide customers within the international market with the same competitive advantages Interactive Objects has provided its domestic endcustomers.

Alberto Perandones, Managing Director of Interactive Objects, said, "with OCS Consulting we have found the right mix between experience, customer respect and seriousness. OCS's path from mainframe based solutions to modern technologies and its understanding of business-IT problems will most definitely be key for a successful partnership."

Maurice Aroesti, Group CEO of OCS Consulting said, "Working with Interactive Objects enables us to help our customers tackle the challenges they face in managing their old applications. The aging workforce who maintain legacy systems and the knowledge they carry in their head is fast diminishing in organizations making maintaining key applications a high risk business. The MoRE solution directly addresses these challenges enabling IT Directors to lower the risk, get best value from outsourced maintenance and give better value to the business."
