It says "Micro Focus Studio and Server Enterprise Edition provide a new, low-risk alternative when considering your modernization options for your PL/I application portfolios. It avoids the need to rewrite, convert or replace the mature PL/I applications which deliver unique competitive advantage to your business."

     Note the related customer story, entitled "Intersistemi Helps Leading Italian Bank Save €3m with PL/I Application Migration", can be found here.
     
    A brief extract -  
     
    "By utilising Micro Focus Server Enterprise Edition for PL/I, Intersistemi helped the bank migrate several applications. These included customer administration, contract management and documentation printing applications, as well as core management systems including financial management and market analysis, and dynamic transaction processing management. The applications comprised of several hundred programs and over 1.1 million lines of PL/I code which had evolved over decades. The migration process took just eight months from project kickoff to start of system testing, with applications promoted to production and delivering value some five weeks later".
