Modernizing Code Older than You Are: One Student Takes a COBOL Bank App to Hybrid Cloud – Sudhanshu Dubey, Open Mainframe Project Summer Mentee and student from Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College;  and Misty Decker, Contributor of Open Mainframe Project’s COBOL Working Group and Product Marketing Manager from Micro Focus

Billions of lines of COBOL are still running the core IT of thousands of companies but those applications have largely been left out of modern advances in IT. Misty Decker will introduce the Open Mainframe Project’s COBOL Working Group and how they are working to address COBOL skills and modernization of legacy core applications. As part of the Open Mainframe Project’s mentorship program, student Sudhanshu Dubey demonstrated the options for modernizing an existing COBOL application to address the business needs and prove the future possibilities. Sudhanshu will demonstrate how he:

  • Ran analysis tools on a monolithic banking core application
  • Identified key services that could be externalized
  • Ran the application in a hybrid cloud environment
  • Modernized the user experience COBOL can be a part of modern hybrid cloud environments.
