martinwolf Represented ExperSolve in Acquisition by Ensono

Scottsdale, Arizona (January 11, 2022) ExperSolve, a mainframe modernization company, has been acquired by Ensono, a leading end-to-end managed services provider. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

 

ExperSolve was represented by martinwolf, a leading M&A advisory firm serving the middle-market IT industry. This marks the firm’s 22nd transaction in the past 13 months.

 

ExperSolve’s proprietary software toolchain converts COBOL and other mainframe programming languages to modern languages such as Java and C#, so applications can be migrated off the mainframe onto private or public clouds. Clients can expect the following in their transformation journey:

  • Application modernization assessments
  • Application migration services
  • Preservation of known business logic and processes
  • Fully maintainable code

In addition, ExperSolve can optimize and modernize on the mainframe, by, for example, updating legacy databases to DB2 to optimize utilization and batch processing times. By modernizing on the mainframe, clients can extend their investment and ensure they are getting the most from their mainframe applications.

 

ExperSolve will become “ExperSolve, an Ensono company,” retaining all current employees and leadership so they can continue to support and provide expertise for Ensono’s mainframe modernization services. ExperSolve will join Ensono’s Advisory and Consulting Practice under Mainframe and Security Consulting.
