SHARE in Atlanta August 2016

“The only cost-effective way to update and modernize this code is through automated analysis,” said John Rhodes, CTO.

Listening to customers and SHARE attendees, CM First understood that the retirement of legacy coders left business-critical code undocumented and difficult to understand, so the management team was excited to present these concepts at SHARE in Atlanta.

CM First Group has long been known as providing expertise and solutions to empower developers especially in the area of application modernization.

“Developers don’t have the time to read through millions of lines of legacy code like COBOL and try to understand the business rules buried in the source code,” said John Rhodes, CTO. “The only cost-effective way to update and modernize this code is through automated analysis.”

Too many have found that the demand to mobile-enable legacy applications has been stymied by the inability to understand what the code is doing and to parse out the business rules from the coding structure. Even worse, code quality suffers when understanding lags.

Rhodes will speak to this subject in the presentation, “Mining for Gold: Integrating Automated Code Analysis in DevOps” on Tuesday, August 2, at 3:15PM. CM First associates will be onsite in the exhibit hall to continue the discussion. CM First has led the way in a variety of modernization approaches; automated code analysis is simply the latest strategy now available to customers. Real world, modernization case studies can be found at:
