Progressive enterprises have found their CA Gen (formerly AllFusion® Gen, COOL:Gen®) applications to be very expensive to maintain. License fees continue to increase, programmers with CA Gen expertise are retiring, and the generated applications are encumbered with a proprietary runtime.
Today’s IT organizations are standardizing on more open environments such as Java and COBOL to reduce maintenance costs and make enhancing the application easier. Since CA Gen generated applications require a proprietary runtime and must be maintained within the CA Gen environment (Workbench), organizations are looking to eliminate the risk associated with CA Gen created applications.
