The Right Decision for Government Agencies

Micro Focus and Microsoft: Delivering DX Strategies

Our State and Local Government clients want to improve their decision-making, and the partnership between Micro Focus and Microsoft has simplified at least one choice for them.

Aligning the Micro Focus Application Modernization and Connectivity portfolio with the Microsoft Azure platform makes selecting a vendor to deliver cloud and Digital Transformation (DX) strategies easy, as these use cases explain.

The Microsoft Azure platform is where your mainframe applications can now run on an Agile cloud platform, running globally to reduce infrastructure costs. It is where you realize a reliable and scalable mainframe migration strategy that maximizes your business potential.

It is where you realize new value from core systems that remain at the heart of delivering digital transformation, reinventing through modernization the COBOL applications that 92% of IT leaders consider ‘strategic’ to their business. It certainly worked for San Luis Obispo (SLO).

Another successful County Modernization project

Another government client wanted to improve agility by moving 30 mission-critical applications from their Unisys mainframe to a cloud environment. So our modern IDE was once again paired with an Azure-based platform in a cloud implementation project. Completed 10 months ahead of an ambitious timeline, the new setup increased efficiency while reducing operational costs by 90%, a saving of more than $500,000.

Boosting business agility for SLO

Faced with increased infrastructure costs, growing complexity, and an aging development team, the county’s IT strategy depended on re-hosting a business-critical mainframe application. Discover how Visual COBOL enabled the move to a modern, flexible, and cost-effective Windows environment, enabling immediate savings and future strategic innovation. More here.

Enterprise Server

Emergency over for City of Inglewood

The age of the mainframe hosting the City’s sophisticated Computer Aided Dispatch system for 911 emergency services risked compromising its availability. Running Micro Focus Enterprise Server and switching to a Windows Server preserved the 99.99 percent availability and saved more than $120K every year in maintenance costs.

While the modernization journey looks different for everyone, and business situations and technology strategies will be unique, everyone must address questions around ApplicationProcess and Infrastructure.

Our brochure, Insight, Innovation and Integration for Critical Business Applications, provides context through emerging trends, CIO success stories, and solutions that enable understanding, identifying, executing and testing business-critical system changes.
