It's estimated that organisations running PL/I applications on IBM® mainframes are spending in excess of US$1 billion per annum in operating costs. As a result, enterprises are looking for alternatives to deliver the same business capabilities for less while retaining the existing intellectual property built into the PL/I applications. To help organisations address this, Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO.L), the leading provider of enterprise application modernisation, testing and management solutions, today released Micro Focus Server Enterprise Edition for PL/I, the first complete, cross-platform migration solution that enables mainframe PL/I applications to be moved, with minimal changes, from an IBM® mainframe to Linux®, Unix® or Windows Server® platforms, where they can be operated for a fraction of the cost.
Micro Focus® (LSE.MCRO.L), the leading provider of enterprise application modernization, testing and management solutions, today released Micro Focus Test Server  a unique technology that will accelerate testing processes while significantly reducing operating costs. Customers such as the largest listed Portuguese bank, Banco Espirito Santo (BES), are implementing Micro Focus Test Server to enable them to improve software quality by increasing available mainframe test capacity on a Windows platform. Micro Focus Test Server is an IBM z/OS compatible environment where application execution behaves just as it would on the target production mainframe. This makes it possible to perform a broad range of pre-production testing on readily available hardware. Testing capacity can now be easily increased to meet business-critical timeframes without incurring prohibitive costs.
The world's top banks are recognising the role of IT in supporting growth and innovation in an increasingly competitive market where customer demand is becoming ever more sophisticated. Every one of the top 10 global banks, including household names like Barclays, have turned to Micro Focus® (LSE.MCRO.L), the leading provider of enterprise application modernisation, testing and management solutions, to help them modernise their business-critical applications. These organisations and a number of other leading banks around the world - such as ABN-AMRO, Banco di Desio, DnB Nor, Lloyds Banking Group, RBS, Standard Bank and Standard Chartered Bank -- have adopted more flexible IT environments with a view to improve staff productivity, customer satisfaction and time to market for new services.
