As part of this partnership agreement, BluePhoenix will market and resell Veryant’s isCOBOL product, targeting existing open systems COBOL customers.

  • The company offers the best comprehensive suite for legacy modernization

“We believe that this new offering will change the COBOL landscape in the open platform market. Our partnership provides a very competitive solution. Customers will have the ability to move to a superior technology while significantly reducing the licensing and maintenance costs associated with running COBOL in open platform environments,” said Arik Kilman, CEO, BluePhoenix. “We estimate the annual open systems COBOL market to be valued at more than 300 million dollars. There are a multitude of companies facing steep COBOL licensing and maintenance fees and we believe that our joint offering is a compelling option in both technology and costs aspects.”
