OpenConnect Introduces valueNow(SM) Program to Deliver Quantifiable ROI in Two Quarters or Less.

valueNow(SM) Modernizes Business Processes while Minimizing IT Risks through Automated Business Process Discovery

DALLAS -- OpenConnect Systems Inc., delivering technology solutions that turn mainframe assets into business value, today announced a new offering to deliver targeted, quantifiable business process improvements for organizations. The valueNow(SM) program combines OpenConnect's unique automatic business processes discovery technology and proven services to configure process improvement solutions. The offering provides businesses with quick, low-risk initiatives that deliver real value.

While most corporate data and business logic resides on mainframe systems, companies are struggling to modernize those systems to keep pace with changing business conditions. Current modernization methods consist of long, costly initiatives prone to failure. OpenConnect's valueNow(SM) method is based on automated business process discovery, which quickly provides a detailed process model allowing short, targeted business process improvement initiatives.

OpenConnect's valueNow(SM) program consists of three distinct phases that modernize mainframe based business processes.

* Discover: Two weeks to discover and document business process inefficiencies providing a set of process improvement opportunities with quantifiable ROI.

* Deploy: Two months to implement an improved business process through a fixed-bid process.

* Derive: Two quarters to a payback on the investment through the improved business process, delivering tangible and quantifiable value.

"Business process improvement requires a firm understanding of the behavior of the business users," said Jim Sinur, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner. "Business processes are dynamic; they change over time and users may not execute processes exactly the same. Successful businesses are able to quickly discover, analyze, optimize and deploy improved processes using fact based methodologies on top of modeling and anecdotal methods."

"The valueNow(SM) offering allows our customers to achieve documented payback in two quarters with a minimum of IT risk," said Edward Peters, CEO of OpenConnect. "There is no better option for companies looking for rapid ROI and quick time to value."
