Datatek --  Expanding the Possibilities

COBOL is a highly structured language that is widely used in business environments. Many companies depend on their COBOL applications and want to retain their original programming investment, but need to switch COBOL vendors. Other companies want to modernize their applications by converting their COBOL programs to other, more modern languages while retaining business logic. In both cases, Datatek has the solution.

A company can use Datatek's automated COBOL conversion service to convert its COBOL code to another programming language that has a larger pool of developer support. The COBOL code can also be converted to another vendor's COBOL product, in order to gain new features/functionality. Alternatively, a company can choose the option of using Datatek's automated programming services to make customized extractions of the business logic from the existing code for use in its migration solution.

Datatek's automated COBOL code conversion services make use of Datatek-developed tools, which process and analyze source files like a compiler. Source files are processed and modified as entire files and in conjunction with other related source files.

The following is just a brief list of some of the COBOL functionality that is supported by Datatek's conversion services:

  • File handling (i.e. line sequential files, record varying files)
  • Data types
  • Declaratives
  • Perform variations
  • Screen handling
