Introducing new Free-of-Charge Integrated Development Environment for IBM mainframe application modernization

New Delhi: 03 January 2013 - Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO.L), the leading provider of enterprise application modernization, testing, and management solutions, today announced the general availability of its free-of-charge Enterprise Developer Personal Edition product. A powerful integrated development environment (IDE) for IBM mainframe applications, Enterprise Developer Personal Edition is a simple to use, entry-level version of the full Micro Focus Enterprise Developer product for IT development professionals and students. It offers a choice of Eclipse or Visual Studio IDE to develop enterprise-class mainframe and distributed applications.

Today’s businesses have to deliver new and improved products and services to gain market share and drive growth. IT plays a significant role in ensuring that business objectives are met against a background of cost control and a relentless demand for efficiency. Gartner’s worldwide survey of CIOs in 2012 confirmed IT organizations must deliver on multiple priorities without an increase in their IT budget.

The Indian Application Modernizations Market

Application modernization will continue to be a key component of organizational spends in India. Growth will be driven by evolving software delivery models, new development methodologies, emerging mobile application development and open source software.

For Application modernization there is a considerable addressable market in India, especially considering the legacy systems that are installed in banking, government and many other sectors. The cost of these mainframes is huge, typically some billions of dollars and rip and replace is not the answer. The business environment is very fluid and shrinking budgets are a key to sustenance. With Cloud and mobility becoming fundamental to business there is an increasing demand for an always connected market place. On the back of these market conditions application modernization is being viewed as an enabler that can help businesses be agile, lower costs, shorten time to market and reallocated funds for innovation. The demand for modernization is fairly robust and businesses are looking at accelerating their mainframe application modernization projects to extract more business value from the existing and become agile

“IT teams need new approaches to balance the essential work of keeping the business functioning and enabling innovation initiatives to improve corporate performance,” said Kevin Brearley, Director, Product Management at Micro Focus. “This means addressing challenges that directly impact time to market in order to remain competitive and sustain business growth – namely skills, productivity, quality resources and integration.”
There are several large System Integrators in India who work primarily on offshore projects that service US and European markets. This has fueled a great demand for mainframe developers – a skill that is quite scarce since most universities only teach distributed languages such as Java and C#.

Continuing, Brearley said: “Enterprise Developer Personal Edition significantly improves developer agility when performing day to day mainframe development activities and helps address the mainframe skills shortage by reducing the gap between COBOL, Java and C# developers in a collaborative IDE environment. Developers will also benefit from faster productivity gains in the new environment. Our technology delivers all this and it’s completely free!”

The product comes with smart COBOL editing, syntax checking and compilation to create a simple way to modernize, develop and maintain mainframe applications. To download the Micro Focus Enterprise Developer Personal Edition software or get more information on the product, visit:
