Museum of Modern Art Slashes Visitor Costs with Accelerator-built Application

Silverlight UI shows off Accelerator Architecture Flexibility for LANSA Back Ends

BLOOMFIELD, NJ – November 14, 2008 – Surround Technologies today announced that The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City has utilized its development tool, Accelerator for Visual LANSA, to create an internally managed Ticket Sales and Management application, now in use on its website,

Previously, visitors booking tickets on-line to the famed MoMA were, like with so many outsourced ticketing operations, paying oppressive Service Charge fees, up to $10 per ticket. Since part of the Museum’s charter is to make Art more accessible, the IT Team looked to eliminate these fees that neither served their customers nor the Museum. The challenge of developing the internal ticketing system was magnified by an impending deadline before a long-term contract renewal with the outsourced vendor was due.

"We were able to complete this project in a quarter of the time because we were using Accelerator... I would definitely recommend it to others," offers Ramakrishna “Sudhi” Sudheendra, Project Manager for Application Development at MoMA, explaining how they accomplished the aggressive goal on their IBM System i running LANSA.

"The major ticket vendors are adding a major cost burden to any organization using them," Lee Paul, CEO of Surround Technologies, adds, "We showed MoMA that a back-end application replacement with full functionality was not as big an undertaking as they expected, all because of the speed and simplicity of our tools. And because of it, the museum is delivering superior value to their visitors."
