COBOL Conversion

Transform business-critical COBOL applications  

COBOL applications are expensive to maintain and they struggle to integrate with modern IT systems. To fulfil your digital transformation strategy, it does not make sense to continue using your COBOL platform.

We have over 30 years of experience in modernising and migrating legacy applications from a range of different environments.

At Advanced, we provide an automated solution along with proven expertise to rapidly and successfully move your business-critical COBOL applications to Object Oriented and Cloud native programming platforms such as Java and .NET. These platforms are highly maintainable to ensure that your resources are not drained by the management of legacy IT. Our services are developed by our experts, and we tailor them to suit your specific business needs.

Minimal business disruption

We partner with you during the whole process to understand your business fully to make sure there is minimal disruption. Our automated tools ensure that your business logic and user interface remain consistent.


Don't just move, improve

After a successful migration, improvements can be made to the user interface, systems can be integrated, data can be transformed, and security will be enhanced.
