The COBOL modernization challenge
COBOL modernization projects present many challenges. Whether you’re moving your applications off the mainframe or you’re rewriting old COBOL programs, the risk of breaking something in a critical process is very real. Often, those functionalities include critical connections between applications, making it incredibly important to keep linkages intact when transferring information over.
Legacy migrations may involve large applications which are difficult to understand and analyze, particularly if there is shortage of personnel who are familiar with these programs. Mission-critical applications resting on legacy platforms are especially challenging to port over to newer platforms or languages due to their indispensable nature.
