AUTOMATED REFACTORING

Migrate CA Telon to the Cloud

Our Automated CA Telon Refactoring solution delivers modern Cloud-enabled applications and databases that are functionally equivalent to their legacy counterparts, eliminating the hassle and expense of CA Telon and the mainframe. This reduces cost, allows for deeper integration, and enables customisation to meet business requirements.

Why modernise?

CHALLENGES

Scarcity of domain expertise

Developers who understand CA Telon and mainframe technology are reaching retirement age and no one is being trained to replace them, resulting in a steadily diminishing talent pool. As this shortage grows, the costs and risk of relying on CA Telon will continue to rise.

Exorbitant costs

Mainframes running CA Telon cost as much as 4,500 per cent more to operate than equivalent Cloud counterparts. This quandary is compounded by CA Telon's rising licensing and maintenance fees.

Limited flexibility

Companies are rapidly moving to modern environments and practices such as DevOps and the Cloud. CA Telon and the underlying systems that support it were not designed for modern IT, resulting in difficult integrations and limited flexibility.

Automated CA Telon Refactoring

OUR SOLUTION

Our Automated CA Telon Refactoring solution preserves the benefits of legacy systems while empowering organisations to leverage the advantages of newer platforms, especially the Cloud. This unlocks a whole new world of quality and scalability from automated testing, to quality assurance, and the ability to leverage containerised deployments and orchestration with Docker and Kubernetes.

We use proprietary automated tooling to ensure all business rules and functionality are preserved, then extrapolate the CA Telon-generated source into an intermediate state. This streamlines the code base and removes any dependencies on CA Telon-specific libraries or runtime routines. It optimises the application for the process of automated refactoring to object-oriented Java or C#.

After go-live, Java and C# developers can extend application functionality for Cloud optimisation using standard DevOps tools and CI/CD concepts that simply aren’t available for mainframe applications. Object-oriented application architectures conform to web-centric requirements and will run on any Java application server (i.e. WebSphere, WebLogic, Apache Tomcat, etc.) or on Microsoft IIS when the target language is C#. Precious business logic from the legacy system is preserved, while levels of optimisation can be applied to deliver efficiencies and business benefits such as elasticity, granular service definition, and easy integration with Cloud-native services. 

Refactoring a fourth-generation language like CA Telon to object-oriented Java or C# presents many challenges. As such, our Automated CA Telon Refactoring process was designed with the following requirements in mind:

  • Refactored applications must remain functionally equivalent to their original counterparts
  • Refactored applications must be easily maintainable, attain SonarQube A ratings, and follow object-oriented concepts and paradigms
  • Refactored applications should perform as well as, or better than, the original applications
  • Refactored applications should be Cloud-ready and delivered using a standard DevOps toolchain and best practices
