Re: Microfocus's increasing license costs & Legacy Modernization

There are realistic alternatives to MicroFocus - Fujitsu and OpenCobol to name two.

I migrated about a couple of hundred COBOL programs (thousands of source code files) from HP-UX MicroFocus to Fujitsu COBOL a while ago, without too many issues.

At the moment, I'm doing the same thing, this time from Fujitsu to OpenCOBOL compiler (the COBOL-IT packaged version), and moving from an older HP-UX PA-RISC to Itanium64 architecture, and finding it pretty smooth going - so far.

If you want to read about the nitty gritty, have a look at an article I've posted on our company website:
