Micro Focus’ Mainframe PL/I Deployment Solution

A low risk, self funding alterative to rewrite or replacement strategies for PL/I assets

The operating costs of mainframe PL/I applications exceed $1 billion per annum. To help organizations reduce this cost, Micro Focus offers the first complete, cross-platform deployment solution to move mainframe PL/I applications, with minimal changes to Linux®, UNIX® or Windows Server ® platforms, where they can operate for a fraction of the cost.

Micro Focus Studio and Server Enterprise Edition provide a new, low-risk alternative when considering your modernization options for your PL/I application portfolios. It avoids the need to rewrite, convert or replace the mature PL/I applications which deliver unique competitive advantage to your business.

The key benefit of this approach is that it can, very quickly, deliver operating cost savings of up to 77%, a proportion of which can then be used to self fund further modernization initiatives for years to come.

Micro Focus’s PL/I deployment solution is built upon our mature mainframe COBOL delivery technology, used by more than 200 organizations, to help rehost applications that consumed a combined total of over 50,000 mainframe MIPS.
