SHARE Inc. will host a presentation by CM First Group that demonstrates how to unlock business rules from legacy languages, revealing the flow and business purpose locked up in COBOL code.

Webinar Title: "Manage Data Lineage and Business Rules Projects with Confidence"

Abstract: Organizations are increasingly using rules engines and prescriptive analytics to gain competitive advantage. But what do you do if your rules are locked up in legacy COBOL or other 3GL code? Getting a handle on these rules so that they can be effectively managed or transformed is a very difficult analysis problem. In this presentation, we will demonstrate automated techniques to extract business rules from COBOL using advanced static analysis and code slicing. Organizations have reported that they can now confidently complete rules and data lineage projects in a fraction of the time that it used to take.
