Automated Refactoring of a US Dept of Defense Mainframe to AWS

On behalf of the United States Air Force (USAF), our multi-company team—comprised of staff from ARRAY, NTT Data, TSRI, and Datum—delivered a successful modernization of a COBOL-based system running on aged mainframes to a Java-based system running on x86 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

The goals were to introduce agility, reduce costs, modernize the technical stack, and enhance security by leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS). We did this using automated code conversion tools and techniques while maintaining all functionality, screens, and reports.

The work was so successful, that it was featured in an AWS Partner Network (APN) Blog.
