B.O.S. and Metastore Establish Strategic Partnership to Help Companies Accelerate Digital Transformation

June 2021, Munich, Germany / Antwerp Belgium - B.O.S. Software Service und Vertrieb GmbH announces a partnership with Metastore to help enterprise customers with mainframe history in the Benelux and France accelerate their journey into the digital future.

In the course of digital transformation, many large enterprises and public institutions are focusing on renewing their IT. The future is a hybrid IT environment that includes on premises and multi-cloud platforms. New technologies such as data streaming, Big Data and Analytics are part of this strategy. Through the Corona pandemic, the adoption of Cloud environments and the pressure towards modernization has increased. However, most companies expect to continue running some of their workloads in on-premises data centres for the foreseeable future. Thus the near real-time exchange of data between multi-cloud and on-premises environments is crucial for the operation of a hybrid infrastructure and the company's success, as this realignment is often also associated with a corporate new direction. Customers with a mainframe history are confronted with particular challenges here, as the mainframe operating systems and data are not compatible with Linux, UNIX, Windows, and Cloud platforms.

With its tcVISION solution for replication, synchronisation, distribution, and streaming of data, B.O.S. makes it very easy for companies to exchange data between different systems. The tcVISION solution compensates for system differences through its comprehensive, integrated transformation logic. Data is not only exchanged, but the conversion of the data into a target-compliant data format and data model also takes place at the same time. tcVISION includes various change data capture processes, which make it possible to exchange data on demand, concentrating on the change data. The operational use of the tcVISION solution is also possible without mainframe know-how, and there is virtually no need for programming effort. Data synchronisation with tcVISION is automatic, efficient, on-demand, and near real-time.

Metastore can look back on more than 20 years of experience as a provider of solutions and services in the IBM mainframe environment. Metastore offers its customers the capability to break new ground beyond the traditional paths with solutions that better meet their needs. Metastore offers hand-picked solutions and services, tailored to the requirements of a modern IT infrastructure with its versatile challenges. Leo Van Dongen, CEO of Metastore, said: “We are delighted to join forces with a well renownded company such as B.O.S. that is focused on driving innovation with Mainframe integration. The tcVISION solution complements our offering and by combining our expertise, we are confident we will deliver additional value to our clients on their digital transformation journey.“

Elisabeth Schwarz said as CEO of B.O.S.: “I am pleased to have a competent partner in Metastore, who can successfully represent the integration solutions of B.O.S. with the corresponding cross-system know-how in France and Benelux, and support them with professional services.”
