VAGen Automated Refactoring

VisualAge Generator (VAGen) is commonly used to develop complex, mission critical and high-volume transaction processing applications.

Modernisation carries a number of key benefits, from cost reduction, to limitless resources capable of maintaining applications in modern languages. Limited availability of skilled resources to maintain VAGen applications and constant struggle to keep pace with market demand challenges are primary drivers for retirement.

VAGen applications generate significant tangible costs like hardware and licensing. The VAGen programmers left are steadily retiring, and the cost of the remaining talent available continues to rise. Skilled resource shortage has significantly reduced the ability to maintain VAGen applications.

This whitepaper describes our proven, automated, high-quality and low-risk methodology to modernise VAGen applications.
