GFT and CloudFrame help industries say ‘cheerio’ to COBOL – CloudTech News

GFT, a digital transformation pioneer, and CloudFrame, a provider of pathways to digital transformation for large organisations who are running mission-critical applications on COBOL, have partnered to help COBOL users make the transition to more efficient platforms that enable users to reduce their overall mainframe costs.

CloudFrames proprietary technology converts COBOL code into more efficient and future-proof Java. On average, the cost of a mainframe process is reduced by 50% after this conversion. GFT brings its expertise in CloudFrame implementation and mainframe modernisation to the partnership.

In 2023, COBOL, a programming language debuted in the 1950s, is still ubiquitous in financial institutions, airlines, retail companies the list goes on. It is increasingly becoming a problem for users, due to high costs of mainframe use and a shortage of experts needed for development and maintenance.

Taking the risk out of a dreaded process

Venkat Pillay, founder and CEO of CloudFrame, said: Partnering with GFT will help our customers achieve application modernisation of their COBOL systems.

The combination of CloudFrames Relocate and Renovate COBOL modernisation products, along with GFTs skilled and comprehensive services, will enable customers to transform COBOL into maintainable Java.

Marika Lulay, CEO of GFT, said: Even experts are often surprised by how widely COBOL is still being used.

Migrating legacy applications to a new platform can be a daunting challenge, but it is becoming prohibitively expensive and risky to keep supporting COBOL. With CloudFrames conversion solutions and our implementation and mainframe expertise, we take the risk out of a process many IT managers dread.
