Key findings of the ISG Provider LensTM report on FreeSoft:
Automated testing comes into focus
Another big trend we saw is the automation of migration and testing processes. There is a lot of information out there about migration dispositions, but testing remains underrated. Testing needs to be comprehensive in case of rearchitecting or transcoding dispositions, as the code base is completely new and needs to be tested like any new application.
Key FreeSoft capability: Support for test case record and replay
Offers specifically developed AppTester tool for converted system testing, with a capture-replay method between legacy and Java.
AppTester supports load and stress tests as well.
FreeSoft’s sweet spot
FreeSoft’s sweet spot in the mainframe modernization market is the combination of its unified framework of software modernization tools, experienced services and a high level of automation in code conversion. FreeSoft’s LiberatorWorkbench™ is an integrated framework that supports migrating complex runtime environments on the mainframe.
