GSE Guide Share EuropeCOBOL and PL/I applications do their job reliably every day. However, the longer the applications live, the more impurities and technical debt accumulate in the applications, making maintenance and further development increasingly difficult and error-prone. It also makes sense to clean up the applications in the run-up to modernization projects in order to avoid errors and reduce costs.

At the following event we will report on how you can use a software washing machine to clean up your applications in an agile way:

Agile Application Clean-up – A Washing Machine for Software

AMELIO Software-WaschmaschineCOBOL- and PL/I-applications are still performing their tasks reliably. But the longer these applications live, the more imperfections and technical debts are collected, that inhibit efficient maintenance. In the preparation of modernization projects, the clean-up of applications is important to prevent errors and reduce the effort.
Traditionally the clean-up of (legacy) software is done manually. During this process, the complete kaleidoscope of possible clean-ups is performed for each program after program. But very often, not all possible and necessary clean-ups are known at the beginning. Many only come in sight when other clean-ups are done. A much better strategy would be to perform the first clean-ups for all programs before, using the knowledge acquired, the next clean-up is performed. This would require an approach where each program might be changed more than once. The risk and effort of such an approach can be minimized when using an automated solution, that can be repeated for as many new clean-ups as are needed.

The AMELIO software washing machine enables such an agile approach in which:

  • new clean-ups can be added continuously,
  • the application is divided in manageable packages for which each clean-up can be defined separately,
  • each of these packages can be processed by the washing machine as many times as needed.

How such a washing machine enables an agile clean-up, will be demonstrated based on a customer example.

Existing applications have accumulated a lot of technical debt over the years. Removing it could speed up maintenance significantly. In reality the task of improve the software by removing the obsolete parts is seldom performed. The risk of introducing errors and the cost of testing is the biggest reason for not doing anything.

RDW has been developing and maintaining its core business applications for over 30 years. The applications work reliably, but over time technical debts have accumulated that make maintenance and further development difficult. The daily business as well as the size and criticality of the application do not allow a manual clean-up of the software. The solution for the problem: a washing machine that performs an automated cleaning of the software from its technical debts.
