GT Software gave us a fast, efficient way to extend our mainframe into the web without adding extra, expensive MIPS.
---Gaëtan Doutriaux, IT Project Director, Editions Atlas

Editions Atlas, a leading publisher and creator of themed collections and consumable products, has selected GT Software, a leading provider of technology solutions for enterprise modernization, to improve and modernize its mainframe CICS applications.

Editions Atlas currently uses Ivory Service Architect and Ivory Visual Connect, which are components of the Ivory Suite of solutions. The Ivory Suite extends an organization’s access to mainframe applications, data and processes without the need to change or write additional code or add MIPS usage.

"GT Software gave us a fast, efficient way to extend our mainframe into the web without adding extra, expensive MIPS," says Gaëtan Doutriaux, IT Project Director with Editions Atlas. "Now we can utilize our existing mainframe business logic with modern web services at no additional cost. Ivory Service Architect has greatly extended our capabilities, increased our productivity and simplified the way we work."

Editions Atlas logs all its data and runs its business-critical applications on the mainframe. With GT Software, Editions Atlas expects to simplify the data management between the web and its mainframe, making order processing faster. Ivory Visual Connect allows them to run those business-critical applications through easy-to-use, customizable web interfaces while Ivory Service Architect facilitates all communication between the mainframe and web services.

“Ivory Service Architect brings value to enterprise mainframes,” said Wilson Rains, vice president of business development at GT Software. “With Ivory, Editions Atlas can leverage their existing enterprise logic with web services, opening up a world of opportunity without migrating or rewriting existing applications."
