Automating application modernization - a story
Automating application modernization involved the use of automated parsers and converters to convert a codebase from one language to another, such as COBOL to Java. They tend to translate code line-for-line. Automated application modernization does not include making any improvements to the architecture, code quality, or functionality of the application. In addition, businesses often encounter integration issues as applications are moved to new languages using automation.
