Application modernization with Micro Focus COBOL
Strategic modernization, like before but better.
SYNTAX has been providing software technology and business consulting services for over 37 years. For 34 years we have been helping organizations of all sizes modernize their mainframes by leveraging Micro Focus solutions powered by COBOL.
This robust technology is tried and true, whereas decades after its creation, COBOL still stands as one of the best technologies on the market. Headquarters in Athens Greece SYNTAX is one of Micro Focus’s most long-standing partners and enables enterprises to implement the cutting-edge IT and best business practices that will help innovate and move business forward.
SYNTAX helps organizations of all sizes modernize their existing mainframes by leveraging the latest solutions from Micro Focus. Micro Focus allows to establish a fit from purpose cost efficient deployment model modernize user interfaces and accelerate development and analysis, all without the pain and expense of ripping and replacing existing infrastructure.
A Micro Focus partner since 1994, SYNTAX has implemented several very important global modernization projects throughout EMEA region modernizing IT environments without the hassle of ripping and replacing legacy systems. Οur projects portfolio spans mostly within the banking insurance industry with key customers such as Kuwait Financial House, The Ministry of Cyprus, Interamerican, Eurolife Group Insurance and more. We even hosted Micro Focus Kuwait global DevDay on June 19th, but why are we so obsessed with COBOL?
We believe that although COBOL recently celebrated its 60 years, this tried-and-true language is the key to seamless cost-effective mainframe modernization. Αs COVID-19 rapidly changed the way organizations do business, more enterprises orientate towards mainframe modernization in order to support business continuity in an uncertain environment.
HOW CAN COBOL BRING ITS SOME SIX DECADES OF PROVEN SUCCESS TO TODAY’S MAINFRAME MODERNIZATION PROJECTS?
While global applications may seem challenging for many developers to maintain and modernize, Micro Focus visual COBOL allows developers to reuse, repurpose and write COBOL programs as easily as any other programming language such as C# and C++.
With Micro Focus technology anyone can dive into COBOL as all your coding needs is now done and supported by a modern industry standard ID such as visual studio or eclipse. Writing new and maintain legacy mainframe application becomes a hassle-free and user-friendly task as even debugging a large enterprise code base now happens in your own workstation.
The undeniable strength of the Micro Focus technology arises with how easily we can integrate and run our existing global code under modern runtime environments like .NET and JAVA. Now we can build and run modern applications which can reuse our global-based business logic in conjunction with all the well-known benefits a modern programming language provides. Who would ever image that a piece of code that has been maintained for over 50 years can now ever run in the cloud offered by a web or even a mobile application?
COBOL is still a cornerstone of success for many modernization projects. As a Micro Focus partner, SYNTAX can help your organization get the most out of your existing infrastructure while enjoying the scalability and agility of modern IT environments. Join us and learn how COBOL and SYNTAX can help you get the most of your mainframe.
