Optimize COBOL Code to Remove Legacy Hurdles

Traditional mainframe systems are valuable assets with unmatched transactional processing capabilities that are critical to many businesses. But the maintenance for these systems has often been marginalized over the past 20 years. You may find today that maintaining your company’s business-critical COBOL applications takes more time and resources than you have. Experienced COBOL developers are exiting the workforce, leaving you with fewer resources and the challenge of attracting and retaining new developers with little or no mainframe experience. COBOL analysis frameworks can help by increasing developer productivity and reducing maintenance expenses through the optimization of legacy COBOL code.
