Migrating legacy COBOL to the .NET framework

Arctic tern

PRIMA has a unique, data driven, solution to the problem of modernizing exising COBOL. For a quick summary of that solution please click here

COBOL has served us well for half a century but it has been overtaken by events.
COBOL compilers, support, and tools are expensive and cannot compete with other languages which are not only more powerful, but are more available, based on modern concepts that fit the modern networked environment, and, best of all, are FREE!...


Nevertheless, it would be foolish (and in some cases, not even possible...) to write off COBOL code that is functioning perfectly well. PRIMA are committed to salvaging COBOL wherever it makes sense to do so, and we have developed the Migration Toolset over years, leveraging our own and our customers' experience in moving COBOL onto the .Net platform. The goal is to bring this code into the modern arena where it can interact with other languages that use the object paradigm.

The PRIMA Migration solution means COBOL can play on even terms on the same playing field (.Net) as modern, Object Oriented languages; it means your new developments and enhancements can be in any language (including COBOL...), it means your old procedural code will NOT degrade your new Object Oriented .Net environment and it means you are under no pressure to replace your legacy!
