Infinite Becomes a Member of Microsoft Platform Modernization Alliance
Infinite is a Global IT integrator with a significant practice in the migration of legacy applications like those written for the IBM I (AS/400) platform. Microsoft Windows Enterprise Server 2012 and Microsoft SQL Server 2012 are often the platform and database of choice for businesses that want to migrate AS/400-based applications. Since Infinite is the world's largest AS/400 migration partner for Microsoft with over 50,000 Windows users of former AS/400-based applications, the partnership between the two companies has been mutually beneficial for over 25 years.
Infinite has migrated RPG and COBOL applications from such companies as Caterpillar, Johnson and Johnson, and Lufthansa to the Windows platform. Its membership in Microsoft's premier organization of Business Partners engaged in legacy migration was a natural decision.
"Infinite has enjoyed a collaborative relationship with Microsoft for a very long time. As we have worked to develop our new products, we were very keen on ensuring that we worked with Microsoft's development teams to make sure that we could offer Infinite I, Infinite 36, and Infinite Cloud in the latest 64-bit versions of Windows Enterprise Server 2012 and SQL Server 2012," said Raquela Kaplan, Marketing Director for the Infinite Corporation.
