Asysco launches AMT COBOL









Asysco has added a new common business-oriented language (AMT COBOL) transformation engine to its Asysco AMT Framework for legacy migration and transformation.

AMT COBOL is the first transformation engine that migrates COBOL code from a legacy infrastructure to a native and readable Microsoft Windows .NET-based environment, yet still enables IT teams to continue developing in COBOL.

Using AMT COBOL is less time- consuming, risky and costly than suddenly switching to a .NET environment.

The Asysco AMT Framework also includes the AMT Transform conversion engine, the .NET deployment environment AMT GO and the AMT Control Center management tool.
