A trusted partner for all COBOL software developers

GoodWorks is a company based on a deep sinergy between best-in-class competences in the mature market related to developing and maintaining business - criticalCOBOL applications and a young and creative approach in finding innovative solutions that best fits modern software development needs.

GoodWorks is a trusted partner for software houses and system integrators in any project aimed to modernize COBOL-based business applications providing the right mix of technologies, products and services required to realize a "good work".

For us a "good work" results from the ability to modernize existing applications managing to retain the business-specific know how embedded in software programs during years and years of development investments, on one hand, and to significantly innovate and improve the competitiveness of the application portfolio, on the other.

GoodWorks realizes its mission exploiting the first-rate modernization tools offered by Micro Focus, global leader in providing solutions for Enterprise Application Modernization, Testing and Management.

The partnership with Micro Focus is based not only on GoodWorks role as official distributor in Italy for the main COBOL product lines (Micro Focus Cobol, ACUCOBOL, RM/COBOL)but also on the development of highly-innovative software solutions enabling a value-addedand smooth migration of Micro Focus customers to Visual COBOL.

GoodWorks released GoodFly for RM and GoodFly for ACU, a solution for ACUCOBOL and RM COBOL customers migration. With this solutions many companies have already completed fast modernization projects of COBOL application towards .Net with a minimal impact in terms of code change and finally getting massively improved applications in terms of user interface and deployability through web and mobile channels.

Our company has been using for several years a character-based business application, designed and developed by our staff in AcuCobol language and including more than 500 programs. In 2011 we invested in Visual COBOL for .Net development system in order to re-write the application by ourselves, but daily work commitments did not allow us to find the resources required to carry out the project. But then Micro Focus introduced us to Goodworks, a certified technological partner who, thanks to their automatic migration and modernizations tools, gave us a huge help in dramatically reduce the time of this porting: after only three months they delivered the Visual COBOL version of our application, we could not believe it! Next steps are the adoption of a DBMS for our application and the implementation of GoodWorks prototypes to fully leverage .Net technology value. Thanks to GoodWorks we are able to preserve our entire application investment and to flawlessly move and distribute it on the most recent and powerful platforms available.
