Moving from Greenfield Application Modernization to Bluefield with CloudFrame Renovate

In the first three posts in this series, we looked at the commonly-made case for “greenfield” COBOL-to-Java application modernization efforts, the most frequent ways such initiatives go wrong, and how tool-assisted transformation offers a better way to achieving most of the strategic goals companies are hoping for from modernization, at much-reduced levels of risk and opportunity cost. In this final post, we’ll examine how CloudFrame Renovate—the “tool” in “tool-assisted transformation”—delivers on the promise of application

The Many Ways Greenfield Application Modernization Can Go Wrong

In our previous post, we covered the most common reasons why an enterprise faced with a COBOL application modernization challenge might choose to start again from scratch with a “greenfield” requirement, design, and build project.
