The spring meeting 2018 of the working group “SOSXD zOS/390 (MVS)” took place on March 14th-16th 2018 in Kassel, Germany. The subject of this working group was the base operating system (z/OS) of the IBM mainframe including the system-related software. Further information about the working group can be found here.
On March 14th, Dr. Daniela Schilling (CEO, Delta Software Technology) and Hans Nickessen (Senior Consultant) presented a lecture on “AMELIO: Spring-clean your COBOL- and PL/I Applications – Make your Applications fit for the Future” (‘Application Management’ in the agenda).
COBOL and PL/I applications form the backbone of the IT landscape in many companies until now. These applications are 30-40 years old and have proven themselves during this period. But within this time the applications were alive. They got continuously enhanced and forced to be adapted to changing environments and new requirements more quickly. That’s why in many companies the question arises how these long time investments can be secured and how to avoid that the legacy applications will become a cost-intensive brake pad.
In our presentation we showed you how …
- the knowledge about the applications can be regained and transferred to new generations of developers
- the applications can get rid of dispensable ballast
- the applications can be modernized or technologies can be changed
to make them fit again for the future. And all this 100% automated and with no effect on running operations and regular maintenance.
