Migration Assessment

With the intense demand for web and mobile access to business-critical information, the push to move mainframe assets to more modern and agile technologies has never been greater. Organizations face critical decisions when aligning existing systems with a growing distributed environment. Years of coding, application development and employee turnover, has made it all but impossible to have an all-encompassing view of system interdependencies.

Evalulate Your Environment Before Making a Decision and Reduce Your Risk

Strategic decisions about legacy migration or modernization are often made without the necessary visibility into existing systems, making it impossible to evaluate costs, potential savings, time frames and risk. Our strength is in our objectivity. We view mainframe systems as an organizational asset to be leveraged. We understand that not every system is alike, and not all are candidates for migration. That’s why we specialize in both migration and modernization of mainframe assets. GT Software has one objective… We want your applications to run in the environment where they serve you best. Mainframe, open systems, web or cloud, it doesn’t matter. Our role is to help you better understand your applications and enable you to make strategic decision.

A thorough understanding of the current environment can make the difference between success and failure of a mainframe project. And when it comes to legacy application and data modernization or migration, there is little room for error.

COBOL Migration Consulting

Cut costs. Embrace new technology. Migrate from Micro Focus COBOL. Stop paying unnecessary, out of control, runtime fees. Free your COBOL from proprietary functions and add-ons. Our Professional Services team can help you transition from Micro Focus, ACUCOBOL, and CA-Realia to Fujitsu Software’s NetCOBOL. Cut costs, improve productivity and take advantage of the latest technology by Microsoft®.

Cut Costs

Get control of your application distribution costs. With NetCOBOL, COBOL runtimes are free—you won’t pay to distribute the COBOL applications you build using our software.

Transition Safely
