1978:  The company is founded by today’s Chairman, Maurice Shnaps, and a group of former Burroughs (now Unisys) employees to provide services for Burroughs advanced systems and software users.  

1980’s:  Financial services mergers and acquisitions see some of MSS largest customers driven to convert to their new parent company’s mainframes.  MSS is responsive to customer requirements and the company focuses on conversions to IBM mainframes.

1990’s:  The Open Systems movement takes hold.  Mainframe users see the potential cost advantages of converting non-core applications to Unix and Oracle’s RDBMS.  MSS develops the process and automated conversion tools that preserve the inherent value of the original mainframe application while minimizing disruption.  

2000’s:  The cost benefits of COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) applications attract customers who also want to preserve some of their own proprietary business logic as a source of competitive differentiation.  MSS begins offering options to isolate critical business logic in discrete subsystems and custom middleware to simplify integration.

2010’s:  Technological advances create new opportunities for enterprises to become truly data-driven; using analytics for competitive advantage.  One challenge is that vast amounts of critical data are held in incompatible data stores.  MSS develops high-performance data integration tools allowing transparent near real-time analysis across disparate platforms. 

2020’s:  Cloud transformations and outsourced IT services start including elements of core applications as demand for more granular system conversions increases.  MSS responds by supporting containers and embracing new microservices and DevOps concepts
