Billions of lines of COBOL are still running the core IT of thousands of companies but those applications have largely been left out of modern advances in IT. In partnership with the Open Mainframe Project, we asked student intern Sudhanshu Dubey to demonstrate the options for modernizing an existing COBOL application to address the business needs and prove the future possibilities. During the project Sudhanshu did the following: • Ran analysis tools on a monolithic banking core application • Identified key services that could be externalized • Modernized the user experience If a university student can do it, certainly you can too It was a wonderful experience working with my mentors and the project community. The mentors were very welcoming and supportive. They understood that I am new to this and helped me at each step without putting too much pressure on me. Similarly, the project community helped me with everything I needed and it was fun interacting with other mentees. While working on the project I learned COBOL, CICS and the MicroFocus tools I used. Also I learned modernisation techniques. We presented at a lot of places which improved my speaking and presentation skills.
