processes helps to mitigate risk and accelerates
What Customers Have to Say
The CloudFrame COBOL application modernization products allow us to configure and iterate our COBOL transformations.
The control the CloudFrame modernization process provides reduces the amount of time and cost that are necessary to rewrite or tweak the Java applications we deliver.
The result is superior code quality, lower cost, and faster projects, all with no vendor lock-in. — CTO, Global System Integrator
We’re partnering with the solution organizations you know and trust, including the leading global systems integrators, mainframe service providers, and cloud platforms.

Today’s article in my series on zIIP processors will be a little different because I want to focus on a specific IBM mainframe pricing model and how users of that model may benefit from using zIIPs. The pricing model, Tailored Fit Pricing (TFP), is the latest model introduced by IBM. But what is TFP, and how does it differ from the sub-capacity pricing models used by most organizations? The Current State: Sub-Capacity Pricing Models IBM …
Your organization has taken the leap and chosen to modernize your existing COBOL monoliths into Java-based application services, ready for the cloud. Your team plots out a journey toward success. Rather than taking a risky big-bang approach, each incremental release on the road toward modernization is prioritized and scheduled to save costs and capture value that finances the next step. The automation factory starts to chew up old tables and churn out Java. The destination …
Over the past few months, I’ve written about the current state of specialty processors for IBM Z mainframes with a particular concentration on the zIIP. We looked at what they are, how they work, and why you might want to consider exploiting them. But in this article, I want to ruminate on the potential of specialty processors in the future. Before doing so, I want to strongly assert that I am not clairvoyant, so I …
The zIIP, an IBM specialty processor, allows organizations to reduce the workload of their general processors (GPs). This reduction can lower the MSU metrics used to calculate MLC software charges. Lower MSU usage can lead to lower MLC charges. Knowing that zIIPs may reduce your cost and achieve the benefit isn’t as complicated as you might think. Understanding how to leverage the zIIP for cost reduction is a CloudFrame Modernization Best Practice and can be …
The drive to get COBOL applications into the cloud, and specifically Java, created a monster: JOBOL. It is the evil offspring of COBOL and Java when no planning, optimization, and design is applied to transformation. JOBOL is the byproduct of speed at all cost, check-the-cloud-box initiatives. But when modernization efforts deliver JOBOL to application teams, with its inheritance of complicated mainframe COBOL structure and bloated code base, problems arise. Development teams are reluctant to own …
