NexGen: Software Product Modernization Can Rebuild Existing Products on Modern Java and .NET Platforms at Half the Cost and One-Fourth the Risk of Industry Averages

VIENNA, VA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - MAKE Technologies, the leading provider of semantic-based application modernization technology, and GlobalLogic, the industry Leader in Software R&D Services, have joined forces to create NexGen: Software Product Modernization (NexGen: SPM).

NexGen: SPM combines MAKE's Transformational Legacy Modernization software products and methodology with GlobalLogic's Velocity™ Agile development platform to create an offering that is specifically honed to the needs of software product companies.
