AFD Chooses CobolCloud to Modernize Its COBOL Applications

For the modernization of its strategic applications, AFD has chosen CobolCloud as its new COBOL solution.

Committed to the modernization of its strategic COBOL applications, AFD has defined an ambitious renovation plan operating on Linux Red Hat and built on an open source stack, consisting of EBS’ modernization software solutions, PostgreSQL database, Java for new developments and CobolCloud solutions for the rehosting and modernization of COBOL applications.

"CobolCloud is the latest generation of COBOL tools, fully modular. It allows on the one hand, the recompilation of existing applications without modifying the source code, and on the other hand, the integration of these applications with the latest technologies available on Windows, Linux, and of course in the Cloud," says Stéphane Croce, founder, and CEO of CobolCloud.

This project led by Inetum Modernisation Solutions, is jointly executed by EBS (European Business Solutions), providing its software suite dedicated to the modernization of business-critical applications, and CobolCloud with its toolset including its COBOL compiler & Workbench and CLDSQL, its smart pre-compiler for PostgreSQL database.
