Melbourne,Australia – November 29, 2007. looksoftware and Link Computer Corporation announced a partnership to deliver System i modernization solutions with Link’s System i software development team using looksoftware's ‘Dynamic Environment’.

Tim Link, President & CEO said, "Link Computer Corporation has been successfully delivering customized System i solutions for over 25 years. In recent months we have undertaken a new initiative called EAM (Enterprise Application Modernization) to offer modernization technologies and services to our customers. Many of our 350+ customers are heavily invested in their current System i implementations and now wish to modernize and enhance those applications without having to replace or redevelop them. We've trialed all the key alternatives in a practical evaluation and implementation process. We concluded that looksoftware's products offer the fastest and easiest way to develop and implement real modernization results through reuse, instead of writing more code.”

“Some of our customers want front-end modernization like rich clients, portals, PDA support and desktop integration. Others are ready to explore web service back-end modernization. Now we can offer a very broad set of modernization options with a single integrated toolset that’s the best by far," said Tim.

Pete Isaksson from looksoftware, and based in Atlanta said, "After meeting with Link's customers at their recent ‘Link Up and Learn’ customer conference and seeing first-hand how satisfied they are with Link Computer Corporation, we are very excited about this opportunity to develop a long-term relationship. Link's large team of consultants are not only System i specialists, but also have strong expertise in multi-platform integration, Notes and SharePoint which are all important for enterprise application modernization. We are already experiencing early successes in our partnership with a couple of new projects off the ground in a matter of weeks."
