Webinar – Control your COBOL future in 2018 – Hosted by GT Software

February 1, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST

There are two ongoing challenges faced by a significant number of companies in their computer environment – ever rising costs and being able to be responsive to ever changing business requirements.

Whether those companies use the newest technologies or they are still using applications written back in the 1960s, the challenges are the same.

For companies whose applications were written in COBOL, those two challenges can be even more of a barrier.  COBOL has been the workhorse of business processing for decades, and it has withstood the test of time.

However, in today’s market, controlling the costs associated with maintaining those COBOL applications has put a strain on the budgets of many companies.  Whether it is the cost of user runtimes or continual audits by their COBOL provider, many companies have to pay more than they should just to keep running those tried and true COBOL applications.

And the second challenge, being responsive to ever changing business requirements in an agile and flexible manner, is equally as important.  While COBOL applications written 50 years ago still work as well as ever, being able to extend those applications quickly and efficiently is a major goal in 2018.

Join us for a webinar on February 1st where Walter Sweat, Principal Technical Architect for GT Software will talk about the ways that you can address both of those challenges

You will learn

  • How the burden of runtime fees can be eliminated
  • How you can incorporate the newest technologies into your old applications
  • How you can protect yourself from expensive audits
  • How you can extend the capabilities of your programming workforce
  • The benefits of an open platform development environment.
