Legacy Modernization

COBOL to COBOL re-hosting

Fujitsu's Legacy Modernization Offering includes the capabiltity to migrate COBOL based applications from Mainframe and mid-range based platforms to UNIX, Linux, Windows and Windows .NET based infrastructure with the aid of our Legacy Modernization partner Alchemy.

  • Reduction in size of or even decommission of the mainframe or midrange machine
  • Free up valuable space on the infrastructure to allow for growth or delay upgrades
  • Utilization of Commodity hardware or even the cloud
  • As the language does not change, the current technical staff will be able to transistion easily to the new platform without a significant retraining expense
  • Ability to Retro fit SOA architecture and ease the path to integration with other moderni applications
  • Easier access to Web Services and Web Browser front ends
  • Improve the longevity of applications and gain greater returns on the investment you have already made in the applications
