Boston, MA, United States [Business Wire] – Astadia, the market leader for migrating mainframe workloads to the cloud, launches the Astadia 24 Hour Challenge, a unique program that showcases the power of software automation in legacy application modernization.
Organizations can take the challenge by providing a sample of COBOL code and have it automatically transformed into Java or C# in 24 hours. The aim is to support business and IT professionals as they prepare the process of moving mainframe-based application portfolios to the cloud. By taking the challenge, enterprises and government organizations can test for free the FastTrack Factory, Astadia’s software platform for automated transformation.
“Many mainframe migration companies offer automated refactoring solutions with varying degrees of automation. At Astadia, we provide truly automated refactoring for both code and data conversion, and automated testing. This results in reduced costs and gives IT teams confidence and control over the transformation. The idea of this campaign is to show how much faster and more efficient this process can be. In a way, we challenge participants to challenge us.” - Scott G. Silk, Chairman and CEO of Astadia
