Compilers

  Keeping current on your mainframe compilers really does make a difference Announcing IBM Enterprise COBOL for z/OS,V5.1

Improving system utilization by exploiting IBM architectures

IBM delivers industry-leading compiler optimization technology across multiple platforms. Compilers let you focus on the business logic of your application, while they find the best way to transform the source code for the target platform. Backed by IBM’s longstanding commitment to forward compatibility of hardware and software, IBM compilers improve programmer productivity by exploiting advances in hardware and advances in performance optimization, without requiring special coding or source code changes.
