Chicago, IL Indigo Software Limited of Durham, U.K. has selected CNX Corporation’s Valence Framework as a core technology for new application development. The selection of Valence follows a long study by Indigo on possible directions for the future. “Valence allows us to leverage our experience with IBM i and RPG while at the same time providing a rich interface that the market demands,“ explains Peter McLane, Managing Director of Indigo. “My development team evaluated many different technologies in our efforts to modernize and Valence stood out to us as the obvious choice.“ Indigo developers from the U.K. are currently in Chicago attending Valence training classes. When initial training is complete, Indigo and CNX developers will work together to ensure a smooth start to the initial development projects with Valence. “It’s a pleasure working with Indigo because they have great people who share our same core values and determination,“ says Richard Milone, Chief Technology Officer at CNX. “There’s no doubt Indigo will be successful with Valence and their development objectives.“
