SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - March 15, 2016) - Modern Systems (NASDAQ: MDSY) has engaged in a project with a large manufacturer to eliminate their dependence on an aging mainframe environment. Modern Systems is using its expertise and automated technology to convert IMS databases to an Oracle database residing on a Java Enterprise Edition platform. Legacy application code will be converted from COBOL and IMS-DC to object-oriented Java.
