    I am a software architect/engineer with 20+ years of experience who is interested in lending a hand. I do not have experience with COBOL, but I have worked with a plethora of other languages. I will help get their systems back online, just give me some background info on the problem and some COBOL literature.

I would be particularly interested in the underlying systems and how we can upgrade the infrastructure. I know it’s a possible to run COBOL in containers. Maybe the applications could be containerized and executed with Kubernetes or another orchestration platform.

With a modern infrastructure, it would be easier to upgrade the applications (possibly language migration) in the future.
