IBM has introduced Code Assistant for IBM Z, a solution designed to modernize COBOL applications using AI. This tool employs a code-generating AI model called CodeNet to translate COBOL code into Java, aiming to simplify the complex and costly process of migrating COBOL applications. Code Assistant supports the complete application modernization life cycle and is capable of understanding various programming languages. While automated COBOL-to-Java conversion tools exist, IBM’s approach focuses on preserving COBOL’s capabilities while reducing costs and maintaining code quality. However, it’s important to review code produced by Code Assistant for potential vulnerabilities before deployment. IBM’s investment in code-generating AI tools reflects its commitment to the future of hybrid computing environments.
