Maximize your IBM z16 hardware investment by upgrading to COBOL 6.4.  To get prepared, and ensure that your install is optimized, learn about the new features and seamless integration of these three offerings:


  1. COBOL 6.4 delivers simplified COBOL/Java interoperability for extending COBOL applications with Java, and AMODE 31 (31-bit)/AMODE 64 (64-bit) interoperability to handle growing COBOL program data without converting the entire application to 64-bit
  2. IBM Developer for z/OS Enterprise Edition 15.0.5 (IDzEE) supports cloud native development, open toolchains and updated languages. Watch a demo on the new Telnet 3270 Remote Connection Emulator.
  3. Automatic Binary Optimizer for z/OS (ABO) allows modules compiled today, to utilize future IBM zSystems hardware enhancements without needing to be recompiled.


Join this webinar to talk to the SMEs and accelerate the benefits realized from the latest capabilities added to COBOL, IDzEE, and ABO.
