Marble Computer Takes On All Perplexing Challenges

Application modernization is a fact of life for most IT organizations and any software company. The use of new computing platforms such as the Cloud as well as new mobile computing devices has created challenges far beyond one could ever imagine a few years ago. However, these Legacy Applications contain the mission-critical data processes of past generations. The key to success is to unearth these secrets and accurately upgrade these Legacy Applications or move them to new platforms as required. At Marble Computer, we have the software products to make this task easier.

The Tools We Incorporate Into Our Software Applications

RES

RES is an advanced set of software products for documenting the IT Enterprise. Docet/EV is a must-have tool for Legacy Modernization, DevOps and Cloud Migration implementations.

Control/DCD

Control/DCD is the latest version of the DCD (Data Correlation and Document) product. Control/DCD significantly reduces the cost of maintaining COBOL applications and produces the Digital Documentation Manual (DDM).

DCD Pre-Compiler for COBOL 6.2

Control/DCD has the necessary functionality to provide warnings and capture errors in older versions of IBM compilers. There are many types of errors that the Control/DCD pre-compiler will catch thus making migrations to enterprise COBOL compilers faster and less costly.

Future of Cobol

Managing COBOL code for mainframe applications has become a difficult task. The shortage of experienced mainframe programmers has left organizations with little choice but to offshore the maintenance of the application code with less experienced programmers or try to develop in-house COBOL programming talent. We go out of our way to provide clients with the knowledge when it comes to understanding the ins and outs of COBOL.

Control DCD for Conversion to Cobol v.6.2

Control/DCD is a useful software tool for the conversion of COBOL applications to the new IBM COBOL compiler known as Version 6.2. For many large organizations, the continued use of the Mainframe platform is justified as a back-end data server. This is true for 2 reasons: Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and security. We still find Mainframes to be processing large jobs that utilize COBOL code that dates back to 40 to 50 years. The “Tribal Knowledge” is long gone.

To be more specific with COBOL, source code on mainframe applications has also become a difficult task. The shortage of experienced COBOL mainframe programmers has left organizations with a dilemma regarding the maintenance of the application code. Most of today’s COBOL programmers have little knowledge of the Legacy Application’s logic or business rules. We have provided a brochure for Legacy Modernization Updates that you can click here or download full brochure.

IBM Reseller Announcement

Our software company is proud to be an IBM Business Partner reselling z/OS software products. Our focus will initially be on the application development tools, rational and problem determination tools.

Why Control/DCD is Useful for Moving Away from V 4.2

The observation made on our part is that companies are looking at what is needed for conversion to COBOL 6.2 and are moving at a glacial pace to do the conversion.

There may be several reasons for moving slowly and only one of these reasons may be the time it takes to convert the COBOL, yet the time to do the conversion is still a significant consideration.

“Those of you who are familiar with legacy systems know the widely cited stat: *70-80% of all business transactions worldwide are written in COBOL. That represents 220-350 Billion lines of COBOL Code. And there are roughly 1.5 Billion lines of new code created each year. *Gartner/IBM”

“Is COBOL the dinosaur language that will eventually go away? Think twice, Fortune 500 IT Executives must figure out who will maintain their mainframes when COBOL programmers retire in the future. The cost to convert is too expensive.”

“The Mainframe is not going away. Organizations worldwide run between 220-350 billion lines of code today. It would be a herculean feat to replace every single program with a new language without introducing detrimental bugs. Oh, and the cost would be in the Trillions of Dollars. *Gartner/IBM”
