Use the opportunities of the legacy modernisation wave, successfully acquire and implement major projects - NOW!

As an IT service provider or consultancy firm, you are familiar with modern technology trends such as the cloud, AI, open source and microservices. However, the complexity and value of existing business logic in older programming languages such as COBOL, PL/I, RPG or Natural are often underestimated. Documentation and experts are not available. As a result, large modernisation tenders are difficult to win and the implementation of such projects becomes a considerable risk for the service providers.

Here is where PKS - People Knowing Software - steps in. PKS is the missing piece of the puzzle that intelligently and flexibly connects the old and new IT worlds. With over 30 years of experience in successful transformation projects, we offer the in-depth understanding and market-leading technology that you need as a service provider for projects at and with your customers.

Our collaboration with PKS has revolutionised our presales activities. PKS gave us valuable insights into the mainframe world as early as the business initiation phase. Participation in the Train the Boss event helped us to keep abreast of the latest developments. We were particularly impressed by PKS‘s presence at specialist conferences and trade fairs, where their technical presentations and keynotes repeatedly provided the basis for valuable customer contacts. This comprehensive support has enabled us to design our offers for customers much more precisely and to present the most suitable solutions. Thanks to PKS, we have been able to significantly increase our market presence and acquire numerous new customers.
