Application Modernization of Legacy Technology Complements GAP’s Transformation Advisory Services
JANUARY 19, 2023 — AUSTIN, TX — Growth Acceleration Partners (GAP), a strategic technology solutions partner, announces it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Application Migration Business Unit of Mobilize.Net — a software company based in Bellevue, Washington. Mobilize.Net is the global leader in automated modernization tools and services aimed at legacy Windows and Java applications.
GAP’s acquisition of Mobilize.Net’s Application Migration Business Unit comprises employees, intellectual property and products that include: Visual Basic Upgrade Companion (VBUC) and WebMAP for Web Forms, Winforms, PowerBuilder, Silverlight and Microsoft Access. Additionally, GAP is acquiring specialized transformation and code analysis tools for Informix 4GL, Unisys Linc, J2EE and Java.
“This acquisition allows GAP customers to dramatically reduce the time and cost of critical application modernization projects by combining Mobilize.Net’s advanced automation tools with GAP’s proven expertise in building agile engineering teams and offering world-class consulting services,” said GAP’s co-founder and CEO Joyce Durst.
Mobilize.Net broadens the GAP portfolio for high-powered tools to jumpstart customers’ digital transformation and create immediate value.
“Mobilize.Net and GAP share a passion for solving difficult technology problems for our customers,” said Tom Button, Chairman and CEO of Mobilize.Net. “For Mobilize.Net, this is our next chapter, and GAP will enhance our growth potential, support our technology vision, and provide broader opportunities for our customers, partners, employees and community.”
GAP’s consulting services create modernization roadmaps for customers and help them navigate from design to delivery. The acquisition of Moblize.Net’s automated migration technology increases the time to value of those projects compared to other approaches.
“Mobilize.Net is the global leader in automated source code migration tools, having migrated billions of lines of complex application code with high fidelity over the last 20 years,” said Darryl Worsham, GAP’s General Manager of the new Transformation Advisory Services Business Unit. “Adding that capability to our proven modernization offerings will absolutely simplify and accelerate the process of updating our customers’ software applications to modern web, mobile and cloud platforms.”
