Re-energize your Enterprise @ #DevDay Toronto and NYC

it-moderniztionWhat does the word ‘re-energize’ mean to you?  A spa vacation would be a great way for me to get my mojo back. Modernizing core business applications does the same job for enterprise IT; a renewal process that gives what you have a fresh sense of purpose. Less fun than a vacation, sure, but just as good for business. A #DevDay event is a day out of the office that could bring new life to your work.

Digital transformation – your journey begins here

Success in the digital era needs adaptive IT systems that can handle constant change, and enable the swift innovation that keeps you ahead of the competition. Our newest product releases, Visual COBOL 5.0 and Enterprise Suite 5.0 help by enabling application, process and infrastructure modernization.


Core system modernization, as part of a digital transformation vision, is a new journey for many IT organizations. The destination looks different for every enterprise, so you’ll need a guide. Meet our product teams at the #DevDay events in NYC and Toronto. They’ll walk you through how the new, feature-loaded versions of Visual COBOL and Enterprise Suite can support your modernization strategy.

The quickest, most efficient, least risky path to digital righteousness is not to rip and replace, but to build on what you have.  The ‘big 3’ analysts, Forrester, Gartner, and IDC all agree on a path to modernization – and it makes for an interesting reading.
