Shifts its OM Track and Trace application from Micro Focus Server Express to Micro Focus Visual COBOL for Eclipse
OM Logistics has successfully modernized its OM Track & Trace Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application using software from Micro Focus.
By moving its OM Track & Trace application from Micro Focus Server Express to Micro Focus Visual COBOL for Eclipse, OM Logistics can now create and deploy enterprise class COBOL applications to new platforms like .NET, Java Virtual Machine (JVM), UNIX, Windows, Linux and the cloud announced the company.
The company said that OM Logistics has built a considerable reputation by linking all the supply chain elements and providing a single window logistics service for 500 clients in the corporate and multi-national automobile industries. It delivers transport, warehouse and logistic support, focusing on just-in-time supply and highly organized goods flow.
S.K. Goel, VP (IT), OM Logistics, said, “We wanted to dramatically improve the maintenance and development of our COBOL applications with a more productive application development toolset. Visual COBOL for Eclipse delivers a contemporary, industry-standard developer experience that exploits our existing investment in COBOL-based applications, enabling us to re-use our mission-critical applications on a new business platform and innovate for the future.”
Ed Airey, Marketing Director (COBOL Product), Micro Focus, said, “Preserving the business logic and existing application investment in its Track & Trace application was a top priority for OM Logistics. By enabling the company to carry forward proven business rules to new contemporary development architecture, Visual COBOL for Eclipse has put the power to reinvent COBOL applications firmly back in OM Logistics’ hands.”
