CAST presents

Achieving faster cloud modernization

Increasingly, customers are considering transforming their mainframes / Windows applications through a variety of cloud-based strategies, such as: offloading mainframes while staying in the Cobol ecosystem, converting their Cobol into distributed systems. Or by gradually strangling the mainframe to determine the optimal transformation path (or paths) for a complex mainframe application, and ensure a successful and rapid transformation, customers need to discover its inner structure.

During this presentation, you will see a demonstration of how CAST’s technology helps organizations achieve:

  • Faster application discovery through automated reverse-engineering of the inner structure of the application (weeks vs months)
  • Less U-turns in mainframe transformation projects, thanks to accurate discovery of inner structure of application, including dependencies within apps or between apps that could be broken by “blind” transformation
  • Higher responsiveness to business requests, during transformation
  • Better team efficiency while executing the transformation thanks to a shared, accurate, detailed application knowledge base. Preservation of knowledge i.e., less reliance on few SMEs
