Successful COBOL and PL/I software documentation
Sysparency supports the software documentation of your COBOL and PL/I applications by analyzing the current software processes and generating a transparent and understandable representation of your business processes from the previous black box.
Sysparency is a scientifically developed software product that analyzes complex software systems and extracts the technical logic and functionalities and displays them both graphically in the form of processes and in textual form. The business decisions are prepared as decision tables and formulas so that both the department and the management can understand decisions made by the software. Understandable business processes and workflows are the basis for the possible replacement of your IT applications or for the further development of your existing applications.
Sysparency integrated in the software development process
We are the only company in the world to document software according to the functionality and usage behavior. This means that the documentation is readable and understandable not only for software developers but also for departments, management and external auditors. The result of our software documentation guides you independently through the software functionalities. It starts with the usual user input and all masks and pages of an application are presented graphically for the reader. With this procedure, the exact current status can be analyzed and documented.

Challenges in COBOL and PL/I applications
This structural documentation method gives you an easily understandable overview of your software solution. Get to know the structure of your software. We analyze your software solution and determine the most common measurement parameters and metrics in software development for you. Learn more about the programmed size of your software (LoC), the functional size (FP) and the effort it would take to re-program the software in this dimension.
The functional documentation method concentrates on the functional process of your software solution - starting with the user input and the technical calculations through to data storage. You will receive detailed documentation of the functionality in the form of word documents in which the calculations are specified as mathematical formulas. At this quality level, you receive complete documentation that is understandable and comprehensible for the specialist department, management and external auditors
The technical documentation is used by software development experts to quickly get an overview of the technical structure and functionality of a software solution. All programmed variables are renamed based on the names of the user entries. You get a technical representation in an easily understandable pseudo-algorithm, so that you can find errors / bugs and points to be adjusted in the original source code more easily and, above all, faster.
We look forward to presenting our product to you and answering your questions
