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.
