SHARE Seattle welcomes back CM First Group, leaders in modernization software, services and support

SHARE - Seattle 2015

“Customers really want to mine the value of carefully developed legacy applications in modernization efforts,” said John Rhodes, CTO. “CM First offers a great methodology with proven results."

Many companies today seek to exploit competitive edge technologies such as mobile, Cloud, Big Data and more. Too often, the IT staff discovers that aging applications, outdated application frameworks, code issues and platform limitations block progress. The options typically offered – go with a canned solution or completely rewrite all applications – aren’t viable and yet, the need to move forward is a critical focus for management.

Since its inception, CM First has focused on helping companies modernize legacy applications. Products such as CM WebClient, which provides an easy way to web and mobile-enable applications, have helped enterprises mine the value of their older applications and quickly respond to market demands.

Taking some of that expertise and compacting it into an hour’s presentation, CTO, John Rhodes, will speak on “The ’ What,’ the ‘Why’ and the ‘How’ of Modernization” at the SHARE Conference in Seattle on Wednesday, March 4th at 11:15 AM. Rhodes will demonstrate the value of automation in the modernization journey and provide examples of how automation can play out in analysis, modeling, remediation and more.

“Customers really want to mine the value of carefully developed legacy applications in modernization efforts,” said John Rhodes, CTO. “And more important, there is a requirement to get this done quickly. CM First offers a great methodology with proven results.”

Many of the Fortune 500 are represented at the conference, as well as government and university IT experts.
