UC4 Software Joins the Oracle® Modernization Alliance

UC4 Workload Automation Suite to Provide Operations and Job Control for SOA Environments

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - August 12, 2008) - UC4 Software, a leading global provider of workload automation, job scheduling and IT process optimization solutions, announced that it has joined the Oracle Modernization Alliance (OMA). The workload automation provider brings more than two decades of dedicated application integration and enterprise job scheduling expertise to the OMA -- an alliance of technology providers who have teamed with Oracle to help legacy IT organizations investigate architectures for IT modernization to open systems.

UC4 Software is part of the modernization framework and provides operations excellence and workload management solutions to customers demanding mainframe reliability and control from distributed IT systems.

UC4 Software has the familiar functionality of a mainframe job scheduler and quickly integrates with business applications and open systems to manage business processing across applications and operating platforms. Customers can gain central control of existing mainframe schedulers or use UC4's proven conversion routines to migrate workload onto its highly-scalable workload automation tools.

"Modernization benefits are not only the lower costs of the new environment itself, but also the ongoing savings gained due to new IT agility -- the ability to react more quickly to ongoing business change," said Franz Beranek, CEO of UC4 Software. "OMA's reference architecture goals include providing mainframe-caliber quality of service with new capabilities to replace legacy code -- UC4 Software supports this with proven workload automation and job control."
