AMC Monthly Newsletter – December 2019

The year, and the decade, are winding down. What better time to update you on the exciting future events, webinars, and a really big survey? Welcome to the latest Application Modernization & Connectivity newsletter.

Shape COBOL’s future

COBOL is 60. You know that. But what about the next 60? Good question.

To find out, we asked poll experts Vanson Bourne to create a survey that took less than 10 minutes to complete, but created a detailed snapshot of the market around enterprise business applications. The more data they get, the more accurate the picture. So have your say. Complete the survey here.

So what are the findings? Register and join us on February 12, 2020 @ 11 a.m. EST for a detailed look at the data, insights and commentary. Register for the webinar here.

Live and In Person

For Micro Focus, 2020 will be a year of hosting multiple, in-person events across the US for the COBOL and mainframe community.

Welcome to #DevDay 2020. These sessions are for those looking to fuel future innovation with achievable digital transformation.  But how, and where do you start? The how is simple: Micro Focus #DevDay. The where is listed below:

– DevDay Atlanta – Tuesday, January 28, 2020. Register here.
– DevDay Chicago – Thursday, January 30, 2020. Register here.
– DevDay Columbus – Tuesday, February 11, 2020. Register here. NEW! We’re offering two tracks at #DevDay Columbus and both will help COBOL and mainframe developers to double down on their modernization work. While #DevDay for Development Teams, focuses on the tools now enabling developers to build and modernize core COBOL apps across multiple platforms, the more technical #DevDay for Mainframe Change and Delivery Teams, is aimed squarely at developers and admins using ChangeMan ZMF.
