In the Fall of 2018, the A&M System issued an RFP to engage a partner to implement Phase 1 of the Financial Systems Modernization plan. Phase 1 was a Proof of Concept to re-platform FAMIS in order to verify that the technology behind FAMIS could be successfully changed to more modern technology, specifically C # and SQL. The intent was that should the Proof of Concept prove successful the A&M System would immediately begin the process of a full conversion of the code with the selected vendor. The award was made to the Asysco/Anubex team and work began on Phase 1 in the Spring of 2019.

Asysco and Anubex Partnership
For the last eight years, Asysco and Anubex have been in partnership across several projects. The relationship started when Asysco began searching for an automated testing tool. Anubex leads the market with its testing tools and provided global uniqueness in capturing mainframe transactions that can replay on the distributed platform. Asysco has used this product in multiple customer projects and internally for regression testing in Asysco’s R&D team. Although both companies’ business models are very similar, Asysco started in the migration space with Unisys mainframes, and Anubex began in the IBM mainframe arena. The partnership brings together two companies uniquely positioned with leading technologies and specialized solutions and can migrate all flavors of mainframes and provide multiple choices for landing platforms. These advantages make Asysco and Anubex global leaders in the migration market.
