M Corp Announces New Contracts, Expands to Australia

M Corp announced today that it has been awarded three new contracts and begun its first major project in Australia.

The Sacramento-based company said it has been awarded new contracts with the California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS), the state Department of Water Resources and the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Leafy Greens Audit Verification Checklist program. The three state contracts are worth almost $1 million.

Under the CalPERS’ contract, M Corp will re-host the pension system’s historic member data from a legacy mainframe to an open systems platform

M Corp has established operations in Australia in order to deliver an analytics roadmap for one of the nation’s largest financial-services firms. M Corp is a SAS Silver Partner and is teamed with SAS Australia and New Zealand.

“This project represents another milestone in M Corp’s growth,” said Alex Castro, an M Corp founding partner. “Analytics is a key element to delivering competitive agility in the financial-services sector. Our established business transformation methodologies will be utilized to identify opportunities and support the organization’s growth.”

Under the CalPERS’ contract, M Corp will re-host the pension system’s historic member data from a legacy mainframe to an open systems platform

M Corp, utilizing its Legacy Transformation Frameworks, is moving CalPERS’ existing Adabas/Natural-based applications from a mainframe environment to an off mainframe relational database. CalPERS officials want to retire the mainframe hardware and software platform as soon as possible but allow members continued access to the historical data, which prompted the contract with M Corp.

M Corp has extensive experience with legacy migration, with 17 previous projects, including for the Department of Health Care Services-Health Exchange & Medi-Cal Interfaces, Department of Motor Vehicles, Employment Development Department and the State Controller’s Office.

“We use our fully developed and proven Legacy Roadmap and proprietary frameworks to execute complex legacy system conversion, migration and modernization projects,” Mr. Castro said. “These frameworks are proven and documented methodologies and processes, resulting in consistent and low-risk solution approaches.”

CalPERS is the nation’s largest public pension fund, with about $240 billion in assets. The Sacramento-based pension system administers retirement benefits for more than 1.6 million active and retired state, public school and local public agency employees and their families.

M Corp – one of the nation’s fastest-growing companies during the past three years according to Inc. magazine – will also be working with the Department of Water Resources to complete the analysis and requirement development phase of its Water Planning Information Exchange (PIE) project.

The Water PIE will be a Geographic Information System-based portal that will improve data management and establish the technological framework by which water management planning data can be accessed and shared in order to help develop water management solutions at all levels of government.

M Corp will use its proprietary Business Rules Mining Framework to assist DWR with requirement analysis sessions, system analysis, case development, and documentation of business, functional and system requirements. The company’s framework methodology instills completeness, accuracy and efficiency into business rules analysis processes while validating and filtering system functionality during multiple project phases.

M Corp is currently providing similar services to the CDFA for its Leafy Greens-Enterprise Data Gathering and Management System. As part of the CDFA’s Leafy Greens Audit Verification Checklist contract, M Corp will provide programming and design services. The company also will develop modifications and enhancements to specified modules of the Leafy Greens and Feed, Fertilizer, Livestock Drugs and Egg Regulatory Services (FFLDERS) Branch Inspection systems, data extracts and reports. In addition, M Corp will provide knowledge transfer to CDFA staff on these systems.
