News: AveriSource Accelerates La-Z-Boy’s IT Modernization Efforts



​July 8, 2015 SAN ANTONIO, TX
—AveriSource, a Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, announced the completion of its business rule discovery project with La-Z-Boy, one of the world's leading residential furniture producers, accelerating La-Z-Boy’s IT modernization efforts. La-Z-Boy replaced their aging legacy IT applications with Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. To ensure the success of the project within a limited timeframe, La-Z-Boy needed to understand and document more than 30 years of business intelligence within its 500,000+ lines of IBM COBOL code.

AveriSource utilized its iSAT software suite to automate the analysis and decomposition of La-Z-Boy’s source code to quickly provide application workflows, overview maps and business rules. La-Z-Boy’s developers and business analysts used the information generated by AveriSource to ensure that its original business rules were properly replicated in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. AveriSource’s rapid information generation allowed La-Z-Boy to accelerate its IT modernization efforts, saving them both time and money.

“AveriSource delivered organized, complete, and accurate business rules to our IT modernization team within two months of project kick-off. They provided incredible value and finished the project well ahead of schedule,” said Dan Deland, La-Z-Boy CIO.

AveriSource’s deliverables enabled La-Z-Boy to launch Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne armed with detailed business rules information, improving the application’s usefulness and functionality.
