Modernization of COBOL or PL/I applications
Changing large, productive IT applications is associated with high costs, risks and an enormous amount of time. The race in the areas of agility, adaptability, and the adoption of new requirements is becoming increasingly difficult. The costs for the maintenance and further development of the application are increasing. The productive lifetime of business functions is often measured in decades. Technologies, on the other hand, have a much shorter lifespan. For such transformation projects, you therefore need flexible tools that change your applications in a targeted manner - without endangering functionality and thus the important day-to-day business.
Our colleague Hans Nickessen reports in his text "Hard to Port or Risk Minimization" about how modernization contributes to cost reduction.
