Welcome Interactive Objects to the Eclipse Foundation

Interactive Objects (iO) has just recently joined the Eclipse Foundation as a Solution Member.

iO considers itself a leading provider for Eclipse-based solutions for application portfolio modernization and maintenance of legacy systems.

Moreover, it offers MoRE, a solution for model driven modernization. MoRE is implemented on top of the Eclipse platform. iO provides legacy connectors for COBOL, PL/1 and other legacy applications. The abstraction, reduction, navigation and traceability features of MoRE makes of this solution not only the perfect companion for modernization initiatives, but also for extending end-of-life of legacy applications and drastically improving maintenance efforts.

iO’s vision is to provide the Eclipse community with a standard-based, extensible and configurable methodology and tools for model-driven modernization, that integrate application portfolio management (APM) and model-driven development.

iO hopes that the membership in the Eclipse Foundation will help to extend MoRE’s footprint and coverage.

We appreciate Interactive Objects´ membership and look forward to many joint activities.

Welcome SBB / CFF / FFS to the Eclipse Foundation

The Swiss Railway SBB has just recently joined the Eclipse Foundation as an Associate Member.

Transporting 327.5 million passengers and 50 million net tons of freight every year the company is by far the biggest travel and transport company in Switzerland.

Having experienced their great services for the time I was living in Switzerland I appreciate very much that this very service oriented organization has become a large consumer of the Eclipse platform and Eclipse related services.

We have seen presentations of their applications on various occasions such as the Eclipse Summit, and we look forward to an even closer relationship with SBB through the newly signed membership.
