Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), released a major new version of TCS MasterCraft TransformPlus, which leverages Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to more effectively analyze applications during modernization. This enriches user annotation in both program flow and technical specification documentation during the analysis of COBOL applications.

TCS MasterCraft TransformPlus is an intelligent automation product that significantly accelerates end-to-end application modernization, including mainframe modernizations, and supports a wide range of legacy and modern programming languages.

It is a proven, industry-agnostic solution that analyzes legacy code, extracts business rules, and documents them in standard templates. TransformPlus builds new application components by auto-generating cloud-ready code in microservices architecture based on user-fed specifications. It migrates legacy applications to the cloud through automated remediation and refactoring. TransformPlus also automates the transformation of enterprise data from legacy to new-age databases seamlessly.

With this latest release, TransformPlus 5.0 can reverse engineer legacy application codes more effectively. Users can now more accurately document job and program details for COBOL applications and subsystems, such as process flow, record structure, dependent systems, file layout and database details. They can view the document within the product or download it for ongoing maintenance as well as for future modernizations. The automation significantly improves productivity in documentation. In addition,
TransformPlus now helps customers automate the conversion of JCL batch component statements to equivalent Java Spring batch statements.

Vijayalakshmi Gopal, Business Head, TCS MasterCraft, said, “TransformPlus 5.0 uses machine learning to bring in further intelligence in the analysis and understanding of legacy code. We are continuously expanding TransformPlus’ technology coverage from COBOL to PL1, AS/400 RPG as well as enhancing the automated refactoring of COBOL to Java.”

Tata Consultancy Services Ltd ended at Rs3,779 per piece down by Rs57.95 or 1.51% from its previous closing of Rs3,836.95 per piece on the BSE.
