Did you know upgrading to COBOL 6 is different from previous compiler upgrades introduced over the past 30 years? To ease this migration, IBM offers several tools. In this webinar, we will discuss IBM Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence (ADDI), IBM Z Virtual Test Platform (ZVTP), and IBM Automatic Binary Optimizer for z/OS (ABO).


ADDI helps you understand the impact of any source code changes that may be required due to invalid data in your program. After you are done with your changes, use ZVTP to efficiently run application integration testing without impact on existing test environments after your COBOL compiler upgrade.


You don’t have to recompile the entire application code base to upgrade to COBOL 6. You can recompile code under active development or maintenance with COBOL 6 and directly optimize binaries that compiled a long time ago with ABO and get same performance improvements as COBOL 6 without source recompilation.


Join us to achieve your migration target date with minimal risk and upgrade cost!
