Edge Information Group and Oh7FoxEasy LLC are pleased to announce the acquisition of the Edge Portfolio Analyzer (EPA) by Oh7FoxEasy LLC effective January 1, 2020.
Michael Haupt, President of Edge Information Group, announced “We are thrilled to partner with Oh7FoxEasy as they take over the development, sales and support of EPA.” He added, “Edge conducted an extensive search to identify a company with the technical expertise in the very specialized functions of the EPA. Oh7FoxEasy fulfills all of the requirements.”
Oh7FoxEasy President, Jim Rahm, stated “Oh7FoxEasy is pleased to add the EPA to its offerings for the IBM z/OS system. EPA is a perfect complement to our marketing partnership with The Source Recovery Company.” Rahm continued, “We are working closely with Haupt and the Edge staff to ensure current customers a smooth transition and a high level of customer service.”
Fred Brandes, Vice President of Development for Oh7FoxEasy said “The EPA’s code base we’ve received is very solid and easy to follow, making it easy to add extensions.” According to Brandes, Oh7FoxEasy released a new version of the EPA with support for PDSEs in 1Q 2020. Oh7FoxEasy has also engaged one of EPA’s current customers to satisfy their need to support the latest versions of the COBOL and PL/I compilers. That enhancement along with support for PDSE program objects is now available to all EPA customers.
The Edge Portfolio Analyzer examines executable z/OS programs (load modules) providing essential information about the compilers and operating system used to create them. First released in 1991, the EPA was a product of Edge Information Group with offices at 479 Business Center Dr., Ste. 115; Mt. Prospect, IL. 60056.
Located in Atlanta GA, Oh7FoxEasy LLC was formed to build tools specifically focused on IBM mainframe application support and development. Oh7FoxEasy has established a marketing relationship with The Source Recovery Company to offer products and services to the mainframe market.
