    On behalf of Broadcom, we appreciate your business and the opportunity to provide you with high quality, innovative software and services. As part of our ongoing commitment to customer success, we regularly release updated versions of our products. Today, we are pleased to announce that CA Telon Application Generator Version 5.1 is now COBOL 6.2 compliant.

    CA Telon is an application generator productivity tool, which has been helping organizations speed up the application development process and increase programmer productivity by automating tedious and repetitive development tasks.

    IBM has announced that IBM Enterprise COBOL for z/OS 4.2.0 will be withdrawn from service on September 30, 2021, and has encouraged clients to plan and start migrating mainframe COBOL products to COBOL v6.x as soon as possible.

    CA Telon has components such as TDF (Telon Development Facility) and other utilities that have been programmed in COBOL v4.2.
    The benefits COBOL v6.x brings to producing optimal code, exploiting the latest hardware, and improving COBOL performance without source code changes have led us to work on upgrading CA Telon TDF, and other utility code, to be migrated to COBOL 6.2 and the migration is now complete.

    This update has been released as a maintenance PTFs ("MIGRATION OF CA TELON TDF AND OTHER UTILITIES" and "MIGRATION OF CA TELON COBOL SAMPLE PROGRAMS"), which can be obtained online at Broadcom Support where you can also utilize the case management system.

    We also encourage you to visit the CA Telon product information page at Broadcom Support and Tech Docs.

    Should you need any assistance in understanding these new features, or implementing this latest release, our implementation services partners can help. Please contact your local account representative for more information on how they can help.
