Re-hosting has become a viable option for many CIOs who need to cut the cost of IBM mainframe.
Re-hosting of applications from the legacy environment to a new platform provides a low-cost and low-risk alternative to re-writing the application or to package implementation.

Examples of technical activities related to cross-platform re-hosting:
Identification of all software components including 3rd party products required for the LUW environment
Adaptation of existing application code to the target LUW environment

Conversion of data entities to ASCII
Adaptation of security, printing and operational components such as job scheduler and internal utilities
Conversion of the archive, backup and historical data to the target LUW environment
The following is an example of mainframe applications with COBOL/Natural/ADABAS which were re-hosted to Linux environment using Micro Focus Enterprise (implemented at one of MOST's customers)
