Companies have a significant investment in CA 2E (Synon, Cool:2E) applications, but until now, no effective solution existed to automatically modernize them. CM First has developed an approach called M3 (Model-Based Modernization Methodology) which is designed to help an organization move to an Architected Rapid Application Development (ARAD) platform. M3 preserves the CA 2E model design while deploying all business logic onto a modern java client architecture.
CM First has been a leader in helping companies develop, deploy and manage applications for IBM midrange and mainframe environments since the company’s inception. CM First believes in devising appropriate modernization strategies, such as M3, that fit a company’s unique circumstances, rather than dictating a single approach based on what’s available in a vendor toolbox.
Minimize the risk of cost and schedule overruns with a high level of automation
Give business users a new responsive and intuitive UX instead of green screens
Integrate easily with other enterprise systems such as SAP and Oracle
Quickly retrain developers who already know your business
Generate modern code that is easy to understand and maintain
Accomplish system enhancements more quickly using modern tools
CA 2E business logic and screen designs are automatically migrated and guaranteed to be functionally equivalent.
Developers are more productive because they work in a modern low-code environment with inheritance, DevOps, Eclipse/Visual Studio, and more.
|Applications can be re-platformed to the cloud (AWS or Azure) or stay on the IBM I Power Platform, as required.|
Migration to new database platforms such as Oracle, SQL Server, or MySQL is included in the service.
CM M3 is designed to work at scale across CA 2E models. CM evolveIT can effectively transform thousands of model objects generating millions of lines of RPG and COBOL source.
