Google acquires Cornerstone Technology for mainframe migration

The Dutch Company, founded in 1989, helps companies migrate mainframe data through a highly-automated process, and it helps them convert languages and databases to prepare applications for modern environments. 
“As the industry increasingly builds applications as a set of services, many customers want to break their mainframe monolith programs into either Java monoliths or Java microservices,” Google’s Howard Weale wrote in a blog post. “This approach to application modernization is at the heart of the Cornerstone toolset. Through the use of automated processes, Cornerstone’s tools can break down your Cobol, PL/1, or Assembler programs into services and then make them cloud native, such as within a managed, containerized environment.”
