BluePhoenix Completes IT Modernization Project for Israel Local Authorities Data Processing Center (LADPC)

CARY, North Carolina, August 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BluePhoenix Solutions (NASDAQ: BPHX), the leader in value-driven IT legacy modernization solutions, today announced that it has completed a major IT modernization project for Israel Local Authorities Data Processing Center ("LADPC").

This project leads LADPC to the technology frontline, and enables LADPC to present a comprehensive solution while using integration, BPM, portal, and document management tools to shorten development time and improve customer service.

LADPC, the IT service bureau for over 200 local municipal authorities in Israel, finished a successful modernization project for a legacy mainframe ADABAS/Natural and COBOL environment to a modern open system environment based on an Oracle database and Java. The shift to a new, modern open system environment enables the use of new products and methodologies like integration through SOA, BI tools, BPM, document management, municipality portal, and SAAS. These tools and concepts provide a comprehensive solution to the LADPC customer base.

The project was conducted by the development and system division of LADPC together with modernization experts from BluePhoenix Solutions, the leader in value-driven IT legacy modernization solutions. The project was executed utilizing the BluePhoenix automated suite of tools that enables conducting the modernization is a short time frame, with low cost and a fast ROI.

"This technology upgrade is part of a big change the company is undergoing," said Moshe Alkaslasy, Chairman of the Board. "With these new systems, the company has positioned itself at the technology edge and breaches into new markets. This project is part of a major restructuring the company is undergoing to align with the new strategy and goals the company has planned for the upcoming years."

Throughout many years, LADPC developed an integrative information system to manage local municipality authorities, starting with the billing systems, HR, salary, finance, "resident file" and linkage to the central authority, and more. The applications were developed with the best-of-breed technologies of the past, but in order to ensure the future and provide the best service to LADPC customers there was a need to modernize. LADPC decided to leverage the knowledge stored in their applications and use BluePhoenix automated tools to migrate to new and modern technologies while preserving the business logic.

"The excellent cooperation between the two companies enabled us to complete the project quickly and efficiently, and today we can provide a comprehensive solution to our large customer base-the local authorities and the citizens relying on them," said Aric Agamy, VP development and infrastructure. "Furthermore, closing the mainframe leads to tremendous saving in our TCO. These savings in the current economic climate are savings that are appreciated by our customers. This project demonstrates the importance of technology that enables leveraging past investments, and the economical importance of modernization."

"Completing this highly complex modernization project, like many others we are conducting, to the full satisfaction of LADPC is another great example of the high proficiency of our people and our solutions" said Yaron Tchwella, CEO, BluePhoenix Solutions. "Legacy applications encapsulate significant historical knowledge and the ability to reuse this knowledge at a very low cost is imperative. In the current economy, organizations all over the world must maximize their IT systems and applications while reducing the operational costs to the minimum possible. Our solutions enable this needed change."
