Extends Code Comprehension and Transformation Capability

Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 15, 2016

CM First Group, a provider of IBM mainframe and midrange legacy modernization solutions, today announced that it has acquired a leading, mainframe-focused, code analysis technology, CM evolveIT evolveIT is used as an integral part of the DevOps process by enterprise mainframe development organizations in North America and around the world. CM evolveIT will be added to CM First’s portfolio of code analytics and automated code transformation products.

Understanding legacy code and business rules is vital to improving code quality, reducing development cycles and modernizing applications. Without this understanding, it is expensive and risky to take legacy applications into the 21st century by mobile-enabling them, exploiting Cloud or re-platforming these applications, where critical business rules and dependency information is typically buried in millions of lines of legacy code.

John Rhodes, CTO, said, “Customers have told CM First that app modernization efforts have been slowed or completely stymied by the sheer scale of the problem. CM evolveIT is a proven, enterprise-grade solution that works on very large and complex code bases. The payback on this technology is measured in weeks, not years. In fact, one organization reported an 80% reduction in analysis costs, and a greatly improved ability to modernize.”

Christoph Heinrich, CEO said, “CM First welcomes the CM evolveIT customers and product team into the CM First family. CM First developers have plans to extend CM evolveIT’s strong capabilities in new directions, including extending the value of automated analysis and transformation to new use cases and platforms.”

Customers use CM evolveIT to perform the following functions:

  • Harvest business rules for system modernization
  • Perform detailed impact analysis for mass change, for example, increasing a column size
  • Visualize data flows and lineages
  • Improve code quality by managing complexity and removing dead code
  • Automatically document legacy systems
