New Partner Network and Education Program for legacy modernization market.

VANCOUVER, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ - Make Technologies, a privately held leading legacy modernization software and services company, today launched its new Partner Network Program, starting with a new strategic alliance with globally recognized firm Deloitte. The two companies will work together to develop a joint program targeting enterprise modernization initiatives.

"We are extending our success in the enterprise marketplace with this program," said Jean-Guy Faubert, newly appointed Executive VP Global Alliances for Make Technologies. "There is strong demand for legacy application modernization solutions that allow companies to innovate and support business processes for competitive advantage, while leveraging existing investments. System Integrators play an invaluable role as trusted consultants to guide their customers through application modernization success.  We've been successfully working with Network members and their customers on these mission-critical applications. Now we are expanding our outreach with active recruitment and strategic alliances."

Deloitte has enrolled in Make Technologies' newly formed Partner Network Program which provides program participants with support, specialized education and training, and access to its patented Transformational Legacy Modernization (TLM®) solutions and products.  This program will help in the implementation of application modernization initiatives.

As a part of its Partner Network Program, Make Technologies has introduced categories to recognize the various needs and specialties of participating vendors. Make Technologies is looking to recruit strategic System Integration organizations focused on legacy application modernization projects and providing them with the solutions and services they need to effectively target this space today.

"Legacy application modernization is a growing market.  This is a top of mind issue for most CIOs as they need assurance of project success with little to no interruption of service while transitioning from critical legacy applications," said Ian Tait, Deloitte partner. "Organizations want to focus on their core competency, and not be in the business of maintaining custom code. Deloitte's goal is to work with clients to ensure a strategy that can provide operational efficiencies and long term value."

Make Technologies' program participants will gain potential new revenue stream opportunities with this new program.  They will also enjoy the benefits of marketing support, sales and pre-sales support and training programs. In addition, Make Technologies will also be offering accredited certification and training programs available through workshops and online courses.
