About this talk

Mainframe applications frequently need to initiate a connection to other systems to gather more data or complete a transaction. Traditionally, APIs are challenging for mainframes to access due to differences in languages and data formats. In this 30 minute webinar, we will show an approach that allows mainframe applications to act as first class citizens in the digital strategy and enable your company to truly integrate your core and digital assets. What you will learn: ●How to automatically generate COBOL code that calls external APIs ●How bypassing middleware simplifies access to the APIs ●Why you don’t need to build your own data translation layers
