Zumasys Helps Zerion Group Migrate to OpenQM

Zumasys, a provider of NoSQL and MV database software for business-critical Pick applications, recently assisted the Zerion Group, a provider of software and consulting solutions for the Epicor Eclipse ERP system, in moving its EZ-EDI and Saaplicity software database to OpenQM.

Zerion migrated its UniVerse database to OpenQM to enable new features like REST integration, native JSON capabilities, and object-oriented development.

The objects alone allowed Zerion to eliminate large amounts of .Net level code resulting in an 80% reduction in code to support.

“We realized that with OpenQM, we could get many more built-in features that we could benefit from immediately,” said Justin Orton, technology and architecture lead, Zerion Group.

Because the OpenQM environment is close to both MultiValue and .NET developers, Zerion’s conversion process was easy—nearly 90% of their code stayed the same.

OpenQM’s powerful platform and modern capabilities have resulted in numerous administrative efficiencies.

“OpenQM has historically been one of the best kept secrets in the market, but in the last year we have seen a slew of software houses move their applications over,” said Paul Giobbi, president of Zumasys. “Forward-thinking developers like Justin Orton appreciate all the modern functionality in OpenQM and we are thrilled to see how Zerion is leveraging the technology to benefit their customers.”

Zerion is excited about partnering with Zumasys to continue to modernize their platform and they have already begun to expand the roll-out of OpenQM throughout other parts of their product portfolio.

“I see OpenQM giving MultiValue a whole new lease on life,” said Orton. “It’s clear that Paul and Zumasys feel the same way, which is why they’re investing in it. We do not just like OpenQM because it is a good product. We like it because it’s a good product that’s backed by a great company that believes in the future of MultiValue.”
