Innovative Solution to Reduce Custom Code in Enterprise Legacy Portfolios While Keeping Businesses Agile

VANCOUVER, March 1, 2011 - Make Technologies(R) Inc. is proud to introduce the Make Technologies(R)
Enterprise Suite, an end-to-end solution for application portfolio
modernization. Customers can expect to dramatically reduce the amount of

"The challenge with all organizations is their ability to do more with
less and in a resource-constrained environment companies are finding it
challenging to support and maintain legacy applications and simultaneously
innovate. As noted in Forrester's Enterprise and SMB Software Survey, North
and Europe, Q42008 showed that a fairly stunning change has taken
place in IT leaders' plans and priorities. Application modernization
supplanted the hot topics of prior years: eBusiness, Agile, Lean, cloud, etc.
In fact the three most important software initiatives for IT decision-makers
all focused on application modernization: 1) update/ modernization legacy
applications; 2) upgrade enterprise applications; and 3) consolidate or
rationalize enterprise applications. The data highlights a sharp turn in IT
leader's thinking; They have come to realize that streamlining bloated
application portfolios is no longer an optional activity. Rather,
modernization is the best new opportunity to cut waste on low-value
applications and thus free the corresponding resources for new projects and
innovation." April 26, 2010 Forrester Report.(1)

    - Lower the cost of application maintenance by lowering the amount of
    custom code and creating an easy to maintain application.

"As legacy systems continue to age and the speed of business continues to
increase, the need to modernize enterprise-level IT is at a record high,"
said Bill Bergen, CEO of Make Technologies Inc. "Many companies are investing
millions of dollars into a modernization project and cannot afford setbacks
or failure. Organizations are looking to understand what they own - to
