How AI can help document legacy COBOL code, before it’s too late

COBOL is one of the oldest programming languages still widely used to power critical applications across multiple industries. But while COBOL is still relied upon by many organizations, the number of COBOL developers continues to dwindle.

Steve Brothers, president at Phase Change Software, discusses why existing tools such as the popular GitHub Copilot tool do not sufficiently address this problem. In an interview with VentureBeat, "How AI can help document legacy COBOL code, before it’s too late" Steve discusses how COBOL Colleague offers a solution to bridge the growing knowledge gap.
