The independent IT consulting company itemis AG hosted the webinar "Legacy Systems in Flux - Automatic Migration?" on 27 July. Our managing director Dr. Daniela Schilling was invited as a speaker.
How can legacy applications be made fit for the future and is an automatic migration from COBOL to Java effective?
The experts presented their solutions, approaches and experiences in short presentations. This was followed by perspectives and opinions on challenges and best practices. The automatic language transformation from COBOL to Java was discussed in a particularly lively and controversial manner.
The answers to the following questions were considered crucial for the success of such projects:
- Are the migrated sources still maintainable or does the automated migration inevitably lead to a "Jabol" disaster?
- How do you test the migrated applications? And what hurdles have to be overcome?
As an alternative to an automatic language transformation, Dr. Daniela Schilling presented an automated modernisation in manageable steps and with a suitable solution for each sub-application and explained specifically why a 1:1 language transformation leads to additional problems.
Please also have a look at our slides with detailed information on our solution and proceeding:
