Companies which facilitate API integration with their platforms are not a rare species today. OpenLegacy is a rather distinct player within this space, however, in that they are specifically focused on API integration with legacy mainframe systems like VSAM, AS/400, and IMS, to provide an easy way for them to use modern APIs. OpenLegacy has a broad partner ecosystem, and they have just expanded that, with a new partnership with data discovery vendor BigID.
“Our customers are enterprises who have been around long enough to have mission-critical apps on mainframes that are too troublesome to migrate,” said Bo Luongo, OpenLegacy’s global SVP of alliances and business development. “These big players understand they have to be able to handle legacy data with modern APIs and we hope to become the de facto option for that.”
