Customers will be at varying stages of their Digital Transformation (DX) or modernisation journey. For those with legacy core business systems, the strategy might include any, or all, of these 5 areas:
Session 1: EXTEND
Identify quick wins that optimise or build on what you already have. This session will demonstrate capabilities that include exposing existing core business functions to: digital channels, RPA, or for Test Automation purpose.
Session 2: EQUIP
Improve your software engineering tooling to enable greater productivity with COBOL or PL/I. This session will demonstrate visual code analysis capability, and the use of modern development environments such as Visual Studio and Eclipse for more effective code refactoring capabilities.
Session 3: ACCELERATE
Improved your software engineering processes to enable greater business agility. This session will demonstrate DevOps patterns applied to COBOL or PL/I applications that leverage Cloud services, and Testing On Demand.
Session 4: LIBERATE
Remove platform lock-in and re-host Production COBOL or PL/I workloads for cost optimisation and a robust operating environment via Cloud capabilities. The session will demonstrate the implementation of containerisation, high availability, scale on demand, and systems interoperability.
Session 5: OPTIMISE
Attain Cloud maturity with your COBOL or PL/I workloads. This final session will demonstrate cloud native capabilities such as Blue-Green deployments, and a microservices based architecture to enable continuous modernisation.
