Mainframe COBOL Refactoring
Customizable transformation solution
tailored to meet customer specific best practices, maintainability, standards and requirements
Growing maintenance fees, scarcity of trained developers, expected end-of-life announcements, cumbersome deployment processes, platform dependencies – these are just a few reasons companies are migrating from legacy Mainframe COBOL applications to modern Java/C# solutions. Whether migrating management support systems, operations infrastructure or reporting applications, the COBOL to Java/C# migration process is usually highly complex, risky, expensive and time consuming.
CTU (COBOL-To-Universal) is an automated conversion tool that transforms a Mainframe-based legacy application from COBOL to Java or C#, producing object oriented code that can be easily maintainable and efficiently integrated with other Java and C# applications. CTU supports the full environment of the Mainframe-based COBOL application, including databases (e.g.,DB2, IDMS, IMS and VSAM), TP monitors (e.g., CICS), JCL, utilities (e.g., IDCAMS), and SORT. The resulting code has the exact functionality of the original legacy application and can easily be tested and implemented in production.
