The Bull LiberTP transactional evironment reduces costs for legacy transaction systems running in Unix.
With the integration of the COBOL-IT Compiler Suite, Bull LiberTP brings their customers a high performance COBOL compiler that they can use to ensures the continuity of mission-critical transactional applications, and to modernize their legacy system. At the same time, COBOL-IT provides enterprises with a considerably lower total cost of ownership for their legacy application.
Using the COBOL-IT Compiler Suite Enterprise Edition, Bull LiberTP allows enterprises to reduce the costs associated with moving a transactional environment to Open Systems. Savings achieved in the move to Open Systems can be applied to new development projects aimed at the modernization of the application. Modernization opportunities are unlimited, as the Bull LiberTP transactional environment is fully interoperable with Java. Transaction processing applications can be accessed through mobile devices, tablets, and smart phones. Leveraging Bull’s partnership with VMware, users have access to virtualized environments, service oriented architectures, and the Cloud, providing further savings opportunities.
We hope that you will find new, or continued success with your use of COBOL-IT’s offering of products and services. We’re always listening, and I hope our users will not hesitate to let us know what we can do to further improve.

When we say that COBOL-IT is determined to build the industry-leading COBOL compiler one customer at a time, we mean it. Our release process, with its enhancements, is a record of Success Stories, and a testimony to our technical staff, and the technical staff of our Customer base.
It begins with our highly responsive Technical Support teams, who are skilled at translating Customer needs to terms that can be acted on promptly by our Development staff. It ends with our Quality Assurance testing teams and the testing teams of our Customers, who ensure that specifications have been fully documented, and tested, and regression tests applied.
In this fashion, COBOL-IT adds new functionalities, as required by our customers, and accommodates differences in behaviors from all the leading COBOL vendors, and platforms that include the Mainframe, AS/400, and Linux/Unix, and Windows.
The latest Version 3.3 of the COBOL-IT Compiler Suite Enterprise Edition includes:
In some cases, these enhancements were designed to help our Customers reconstruct their compile scripts. In some cases, they were designed to ensure default behaviors that are consistent with the COBOL platform from which our Customers were migrating. In both cases, they ensured that our Customers could complete their migration with a minimum of changes to their COBOL, and build scripts, and a minimum of changes for their users. With this release, we have over two dozen new enhancements, which will make the transition to COBOL-IT easier for users of IBM, AS/400, and Micro Focus COBOL.

It is important to focus not just on the features, but on the benefits, as well. All of the enhancements we see in Version 3.3 of the COBOL-IT Compiler Suite Enterprise Edition have the effect of reducing the cost of moving to Open Source with COBOL-IT. That translates into shorter time to market, and accelerated return on investment. However, moving to Open Source with COBOL-IT is just the first step in our Customers’ journey.
Benefits also extend to the areas of interoperability, and performance. In Version 3.3, COBOL-IT has introduced enhancements to improve the performance of arithmetic operations using large numbers, of SORT operations using large files, of READ and WRITE operations of small records in sequential files. Environment variables have been introduced to improve the efficiency, and ultimately the performance of the CALL statement, which can enhance the interoperability of your application by making it more efficient.
I invite you to read about these enhancements in more detail.
