After you’ve worked through our suggested steps for migrating your COBOL programs to COBOL Version 5.2 or 6.1, it’s time to begin an initial rollout. Here's how.
Here is an overview of the types of performance optimization available in COBOL Versions 5 and 6 and how to identify and use these new COBOL optimization features.
A large percentage of COBOL migration problems are data related, so thorough testing is crucial to discovering them. The testing you do now will save you from countless hours of debugging, potentially losing revenue and disappointing your customers.
Deciding which COBOL release you want to migrate to first and then following through with a stable migration requires a well-researched and carefully considered plan. Here we present the similarities and differences between the two latest versions of COBOL.
The best way to optimize your COBOL programs is to migrate them to the latest version of COBOL. The first part of that strategy involves roadmap planning.
