Customer Success Story: Visual COBOL and Relativity modernize application development

This independent distributor ships nearly 450,000 items each year, and manages over 200,000 inventory items across different locations in different states. It maintained over 1,000 COBOL programs, containing 1,700,000 LOC (Lines of Code) while also sharing macros. The IT team wanted to improve both the end-user and developer experience. Using the Visual COBOL toolset, new applications are designed to interact with COBOL data more seamlessly and efficiently, supporting the editing and debugging efforts of the development team. Implementing Micro Focus Relativity provides real-time, SQL-based, relational data access to the COBOL data files. The end user sees exactly the same data at exactly the same time as the COBOL application.

Our customer contact said: “The combination of Visual COBOL and Relativity has given us a great set of solutions to help meet current and future needs for information access, and ease of data entry. We are delighted with the Micro Focus support, and look forward to our ongoing partnership.”
