A Leader in Client Server Application Development
Metex was founded in 1989 and quickly emerged as a high-performance IT development organization
that provided customized enterprise-level client server solutions for a variety of industries
including telecommunications, agriculture, energy and government.   During this time, Metex
developed and supported applications written in a wide range of 4GL languages including Centura,
C++, Delphi, PowerBuilder and Visual Basic.
Selected as Rational Software's First Solution Partner Based on Solid 4GL Knowledge
In 1992, Rational Software commissioned Metex to develop a software solution to connect its Rational
Rose product to various 4GL languages including PowerBuilder and Centura.   The resulting Metex
Rational Rose Link solution has been deployed by hundreds of customers worldwide and Metex maintained
a strong partnership with Rational until its $2.1B acquisition by IBM in 2003.
Metex continued to deliver strategic, mission critical client server software solutions throughout the
1990’s addressing business requirements such as:
- An Operations Support System for Group Telecom that optimized operations by integrating billing,
gateway management and other provisioning systems.
- A comprehensive billing solution for TELUS Mobility that enabled the company to integrate multiple
invoicing systems from recent acquisitions onto a common platform.
- A real-time auction system for the Ontario Pork Marketing Board that manages $800M in annual
Industry Leading Client Server Modernization Solutions
In 1999 Metex decided to further leverage its vast development experience and set out to provide a more
effective method for modernizing client server applications written in 4GL languages.   Metex’s first
release was a suite of tools that provided automated modernization from Centura Client Server to a multi-
tier Java architecture.
The Metex tool suite was rapidly expanded to include .NET and support PowerBuilder, Delphi, C++ and a wide
range of other 4GL languages.   The Metex modernization processes and technologies have been developed
and refined over the previous ten years.   The Metex application modernization tool suite now includes
over 30 different modernization tools that are used to create the various layers of a multi-tier .NET
By 2010, Metex has transformed more lines (100 million and counting) of legacy client server code to
modern architectures than any other vendor.   Metex has successfully completed modernization projects for
Governments, Fortune 500 corporations and software companies in over 20 countries around the world.
