Intelligent Automation Event Scheduled for May 19

Join us May 19, 2022 at 1:00 Eastern for CloudFrame’s next virtual event. COBOL modernization projects can be high-risk and costly.  Especially if applications are modernized using a green-field rewrite approach.   These projects can involve small armies of developers deployed for the heavy lifting of code production as they attempt to reduce the risk of extended project duration. Some of these projects are “successful” – often by tweaking the definition of success. The reasons for …
