NEOS Partners with Practical Transitions

NEOS LLC (“NEOS”) and its software division, Vgo Software (“Vgo”), have partnered with Practical Transitions LLC (“PracTrans”) to provide more inclusive portfolio modernization solutions and conversion services for mainframe and other legacy application environments.

Ernst Renner, Chief Executive Officer at NEOS describes the partnership as a ‘win-win’ alliance. “PracTrans has extensive mainframe expertise with solutions that complement our client’s modernization efforts and allow them to derive more value from their existing legacy applications. Clients gain complete insight into their application complexities and can better identify the critical dependencies throughout their operational environment.”

Robert Ruetz, President at PracTrans agrees that the partnership ensures a highly effective modernization process for larger legacy environments. “We believe there is a growing demand to provide the critical analysis needed for both the backend data sources and front-end business applications before any conversion process is implemented. We are excited to be working with NEOS and Vgo Software who share that same belief.”

Vgo Software and PracTrans each have distinct analysis tools to produce all the needed metadata to accurately size and estimate costs associated with legacy modernization and conversion activities.
