In an extremely proud moment for SHI, it has announced its first ever patent! The ‘Legacy Stats Generator’ automates the manual process of extracting, analyzing and/or, while presenting critical statistical information regarding mainframe application. The statistical information may be used to plan, implement and track progress of migrating the respective application to a different platform. This tool reduces manual effort, increases accuracy of the statistical information accumulated and provides information that is not realistically obtained manually.

After immense research, efforts and hard work, the team is ecstatic to have finally reached this milestone. More innovative projects are currently in the pipeline and the aim is to make a difference while constantly increasing skill sets.

The Sears Alumni Terminus (SAT), a zone created for the alumni of SHI was launched on December 2, 2013. Created to let the alumni connect, share and know updates about the organization and themselves, SAT is another step of SHI to make a larger family of professionals who contributed to its  success, and acknowledge the efforts of each one who walked the journey.

The site is a buzz with associates joining in and initiating conversations. Click here to join if you are an alumni of SHI.
