Some of the unique benefits of COBOL development

Since 1959, COBOL has evolved significantly, embracing enhancements in code writing. Though the language’s development was discontinued in 2014, it is still in demand and continues to exist until the software is ready to migrate to a new alternative. Below, we unleash the benefits of this programming language.

Global business language

Fintech, healthcare, retail, and automotive industries still use COBOL to address software challenges. For instance, business giants such as IBM, Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase still put stakes on the language in business computing.

Easy readability

Since the philosophy behind emerging COBOL was immense understandability, developers today can easily comprehend the basic language’s syntax that does not employ pointers, functions and user-defined data types.

Seamless integration

COBOL is easily compatible with modern architectures and complex technologies such as Java, C#, and Docker container, runs on .NET and JVM and smoothly interoperates with Azure and AWS cloud environments.

Portable language

We at Innowise Group aim to develop solutions that stay accessible across various operating systems. Thus, the platform-agnostic aspect allows for building COBOL apps that run on Windows and Mac.

COBOL applications – where are they used

COBOL is still a powerful programming language widely employed by a range of companies, governmental organizations, non-commercial institutions, and many others. The platform is expected to continue supporting critical business functions for another decade, helping startups, SMEs, and large enterprises fulfill their aspirations. Below are some industries where the programming language is used.

How much does it cost to build a custom COBOL application?

Since every custom software development project is unique, there is no predefined answer to the question. The final cost is calculated proceeding from the project’s complexity and scope, team size, members’ hourly rates, selected tech stack, project duration, etc. We at Innowise are not interested in budget ballooning and, therefore, offer transparent pricing conditions based on T&M, fixed price or dedicated team cooperation models.

Something is fashionable, something is outdated, but something is eternal - and that’s COBOL.

We build things that last.

Why hire COBOL developers from Innowise Group?

Although many of the world’s transaction processing systems still use COBOL, finding competent, reliable software engineers may be challenging. With a vast pool of dedicated software evangelists, Innowise Group fills the knowledge gap and delivers solutions that drive revenues and give customers competitive advantages.

If a customer lacks industry-specific IT expertise, our specialists can either augment their existing team or start a new project from scratch. Thanks to this, more than 90% of clients come back with new projects to tackle, cementing long-term relationships that we describe as professionals to professionals.

Since 2002, COBOL has become one of the object-oriented programming languages, but only a handful of COBOL software developers manage to obtain enough competence to deal with complicated maintenance and development projects. Based on that, today, many customers struggle to find reliable vendors that can complete complex bespoke projects. When you choose Innowise Group, you can rest assured that all milestones will be reached and that you will receive the results that you expect.
