“We have a clear perspective on OpenLegacy’s advantages,” said Patrick Meisberger, CommerzVentures Managing Director. “We understand the size of the potential market because we can see first-hand the challenges of adopting new technologies in legacy environments. OpenLegacy helps with a variety of use cases, from creating APIs quickly for any backend system all the way to a full, phased cloud migration.”

“This high quality, broad-based group of financial and strategic investors validates our market approach,” said Ron Rabinowitz, OpenLegacy’s CFO & COO. “This funding strongly supports our worldwide expansion and will enable OpenLegacy’s platform to increase its market share in the Forbes Global 2000.”
