Many leaders are convinced by now that they have to move their core business systems away from COBOL sooner rather than later.
CobolBridge is Astadia's newest solution that allows these organizations to combine maintaining COBOL code with executing Java/C#. In other words, it equips IT teams with the right tools to benefit from the advantages of a modern and open platform like Java or .NET, while developers have the option to keep using the COBOL they know so well.
This makes it possible for developers to transition to Object-Oriented languages such as Java or C# gradually over time, for example, team by team.
Everybody agrees that automation is key to mainframe modernization regardless of the selected transformation approach, particularly in replatforming or refactoring projects. Not everybody, however, has the vision to automate the journey all the way.
COBOL talent shortage is a major mainframe modernization driver and that’s when every IT leader must make a decision about what will happen to the COBOL programmers in this scenario.
