July 1, 2008, Mobile, AL – Today MapuSoft Technologies (MT) announced that Tecnobit, of Valdepeñas, Spain has selected MT’s OS Changer software reuse product for their current migration project. Tecnobit is using OS Changer to move their legacy software to the Linux operating system. The application that uses OS Changer is a simulator of a navigation console for a tactical data system for the Spanish Armada. By implementing MT’s solution, and recycling their original software, Tecnobit will save valuable development resources and eliminate an expensive and time consuming code rewrite.
“At Tecnobit we strive daily to seek out the best development tools to improve the quality of our products and satisfy our customers. To accomplish these goals we employ tools such as OS Abstractor and OS Changer, which have a leading position in their market,” said Jesus Megia, Tecnobit’s Software Manager.
