Visual COBOL shortlisted for Best Developer Tool 2015

Here at Micro Focus HQ, we’ve got the Champagne on ice because UK technology website The Inquirer has shortlisted Visual COBOL for ‘Best Developer Tool’ in their Tech Hero Awards 2015.

It’s been a good year so far: our #COBOLrocks social media campaign is up  for a Markie and our SUSE colleagues won Enterprise Storage Product of the Year at the Network Computing Awards.


Happy birthday!
