Pragmatic action

Facet use automated tooling to analyse your existing COBOL codebases and provide visual and data-driven insights into structure and complexity. This helps you know where to start, where to stride boldly, and where to pay extra attention. That initial automated analysis helps anyone not familiar with the codebase, understand it’s current complexity, cohesion and coupling. VSAM can be migrated into DB2, and all consuming COBOL programs that use the VSAM switch to use DB2. Old DELTA COBOL applications can be automatically refactored to maintainable standard IBM COBOL, removing the reliance on the original generators and skillsets.
  • Provide objective and visual analysis of existing complex COBOL codebases
  • Migrate VSAM to DB2 and automatically refactor the applications that use VSAM
  • Refactor generated DELTA COBOL applications into standard maintainable COBOL

We help our customers

Deliver Gen upgrades

Provide Gen resources

We can provide Consulting reviews for application performance, DevOps processes and architectural options as well as onsite or offsite developer resources.

Modernise your applications

Use automated refactoring tools to consolidate disparate data sources (eg VSAM->DB2) and simplify and expose existing COBOL codebases.

Move to new platforms

The commoditisation of infrastructure is offering new opportunities to lower operational costs. We help evaluate, plan and deliver these changes.
