    Your first steps with Visual COBOL -  COBOL Developer Day Your first steps with Visual COBOL - COBOL Developer Day Presentation Transcript

    • Your First Steps with Visual COBOL Michael Bleistein, Principal Architect
    • Embracing Innovation with Visual COBOL REDUCTION OF BACKLOG / IT DEBT DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES New Architecture Mobile Cloud Development Efficiency Skills and Organization
    • Embracing Innovation with Visual COBOL Cloud Mobile New Architecture Skills and Organization Development Efficiency
    • Development Efficiency - Development organizations under pressure to provide software solutions to the pressing issues of the day. - Investment and process decisions may have led to a confused and inefficient situation today. - Need to build a more efficient software delivery process - Organizations are looking to unify development tooling and streamline the deployment approach
    • Development Efficiency Highly effective development results with Visual COBOL • Faster code compile, edit and debug process • 30% improvement in developer productivity • Greater development team collaboration • Advanced COBOL development tooling – background parsing, autocomplete, smart editing, etc. • Unified development environment supporting efficient cross-team development • Developer collaboration across all languages Benefits Capability
    • Demonstration Modern IDE choices for COBOL
    • • Structural barriers are major obstacles to organizational efficiency • Technology lines between development groups limit the ability for teams to collaborate • Resource skill pool has much less agility. • IT needs ways to break down barriers and to unify the skills pool. • Eliminating the obstructions • Implementing skill-sharing programs • Group wide process and technology standards. 8 Skills & Organization
    • Skills & the Organization Bridge the Skills Gap with Visual COBOL • Address the skills challenge issue • Attract a new talent pool • Protect the value & importance of your core apps • Works with industry standard IDEs - Visual Studio and Eclipse • Consistent development experience for C/C++, .NET, Java and COBOL developers • Smart editing tools make cutting “new” COBOL code easier to learn than ever Benefits Capability
    • Demonstration Visual COBOL bridges the Skills gap
    • • IT organizations look to provide core business as a service • Reduce operating cost and complexity by outsourcing core IT (platforms, services, applications) to a provider • ISVs consolidate platforms for smaller customers with strained IT budgets 11 Cloud Computing
    • Cloud Computing Scalable, cost-effective application deployment to the Cloud • Up to 70% reduction in IT costs • Increased application reliability, availability and serviceability • Rapid service delivery Benefits Capability • Deploy existing on-premise COBOL applications into the Cloud • Access data from SQL Azure, Amazon S3 and other Cloud data storage • Supports Amazon and Azure Cloud models
    • Demonstration Visual COBOL in the Cloud
    • • Mobile world now very much part of the business world • Organizations striving to make sense of the BYOD Consumerization of IT • Additionally, as mobile services start to prevail, the impact on the back office starts to take its toll • Customers expecting mobile apps to provide access to existing services 14 Mobile Computing
    • Mobile Computing Enhance the User Experience with Visual COBOL • Build vibrant user interfaces. Deliver a better user experience • Respond to consumer service demands • Get ahead of the competition. • Access COBOL applications and data from IPhone, Android, Windows 8, and Blackberry devices • Create Web 2.0 & HTML 5 applications • Build SOA-enabled systems Benefits Capability
    • Demonstration BYOD to Visual COBOL
    • • New and different deployment platforms present both challenges and opportunities for IT and development organizations • JVM, .NET, or both? • New platforms such as zEnterprise, Windows 8 and tablet devices must be embraced • Integration with 3rd party services • Access to various database systems • Keeping a competitive edge requires keeping up 17 Architecture
    • Architecture Portable, agile, application deployment with Visual COBOL • Reduce your Time to Delivery by up to 50% • Flexible application deployment & greater choice • Build once. Deploy anywhere! • Enterprise-wide portability of COBOL business apps • Application deployment across 50+ platforms including Windows, Unix, Linux, z/Linux, .NET, and JVM. • Integration with modern technologies such as XML, SOA, Web Services, and Relational Databases Benefits Capability
    • Demonstration Visual COBOL providing the flexibility you need in your architecture
