Move on from the mainframe


Public Sector entities need to provide better citizen services while reducing costs – and removing their dependency on increasingly scarce COBOL skills.

Organizations have long relied on mainframe platforms for their mission-critical applications, investing in COBOL code that’s now hard to maintain as specialists retire and new professionals focus on other platforms.

So tasks like fixing applications and extracting data are getting more complex, disruptive, and expensive. That means modernizing legacy applications is now crucial for delivering citizen services and meeting your timelines.

The answer is Fujitsu PROGRESSION, the automated solution to modernizing your legacy applications on-premise or in the cloud.

Five practical tips for modernizing public sector applications

Technical debt is a major problem for state and local government organizations. Outdated applications prevent agencies from operating efficiently — and from delivering constituent services effectively.


Moving forward on IT modernization

Most public sector agencies have extensive portfolios of outmoded legacy applications. Whether they’re fighting off cyberattacks, migrating from mainframes or optimizing the constituent experience, agency IT leaders understand the need for modern applications.

Fujitsu Blog: What's the future for COBOL?

When it comes to computer languages, it’s hard to get more fundamental than COBOL but fewer programmers are learning the language today. It’s now crucial to address the issue of COBOL’s impending obsolescence.
