But businesses that have critical existing COBOL applications, are not exempt from a digital transformation mandate. To start this journey, COBOL applications have to leave their legacy zone and open up for integration into a company’s entire software landscape. fccFrameWork is the toolset to protect company’s investments and support this transformation approach by keeping COBOL as the development platform.
fccFrameWork is designed to support real COBOL Application Modernizing rather than running complex, risky, and long-lasting redevelopment projects or just translating COBOL code into Java or C++.
Modernization using fccFrameWork is related to a bunch of ready-to-use application modules providing Audit Trail, Authentication, Communication (E-Mail, SMS), Branding, different data storage models (Cobol file system, c-treeRTG, SQL Databases), Job Control, Menu System, Multi-Language incl. translation engine, Multi-Tenancy, Online Help, Usage Metering, and many more. As a result, customers can focus on maintaining their proven business processes and rules implemented in COBOL.
And as fccFrameWork is created and maintained with modern COBOL development environments generating Java bytecode, the resulting runtime is hardware / OS agnostic and all functions & features are natively callable from customer COBOL applications but are also provided as methods for usage outside COBOL environments.
Founded in 2017, bw-fcc GmbH is engaged in providing services and solutions in the area of COBOL Application Modernization.
We strongly believe in the future of COBOL and our motto is ‚reuse instead of replace‘. And in contrast to the low reputation COBOL has had in recent years, it has developed from a hardware / OS dependent procedural programming language to a modern development platform supporting Eclipse and Visual Studio.
Our mission is to identify clients who currently use COBOL and assist in their COBOL Applications Modernization efforts and deployment of new releases.
We provide consulting, ready-to-use COBOL application modernization software solutions, client specific COBOL development, support and maintenance in order to:
1. protect our client’s know-how and investments in their existing COBOL application portfolio
2. enable our clients to focus on maintaining their vital and proven business processes and functions implemented in their COBOL applications and ongoingly enhance these applications with ready-to-use fccFrameWork based functions and features covering all aspects of a modern, state-of-the-art application environment.
