It’s time to make the move from the Mainframe
Providing better services while reducing costs and removing dependency from increasing COBOL skill shortage.

It’s possible with Fujitsu PROGRESSION

For decades, enterprises have relied on mainframe platforms to run their mission-critical applications built using COBOL. They have invested a great deal of time and efforts in developing applications to innovate and deliver new services in line with rising customer expectations.

As current COBOL staff retire, it becomes increasingly difficult to access resources who have the necessary skills. New developrs are not interested in learning COBOL which leads to a shortage in developers available in the market. Moreover, making changes to applications and/or extracting the data to build reports is very complex, expensive and time consuming. This is why government agencies are recognizing that relying on outdated mainframe infrastructure and COBOL is not sustainable and the need to modernize legacy applications is now crucial.

At Fujitsu, we’ve developed a highly automated solution to modernize legacy applications on-premise or in the Cloud.

Don’t let mainframes hold you back. Don’t let modernization slow you down.
