COBOL Migration

Why migrate

Three of the primary reasons for doing this are (1) to reduce hardware costs, (2) to reduce software costs (or to improve programmer productivity), and (3) to make it easier to enhance existing systems so they can provide competitive business advantages. These are legitimate reasons for considering migrations because mainframe hardware and software are indeed expensive, and COBOL applications have always been relatively hard to maintain and enhance.
