Micro Focus, a company that provides software for modernizing enterprise applications, has been awarded a contract by the Internal Revenue Service.

The contract involves a software application development pilot program that will support the IRS’ Automated Collection System. Customer service representatives use the Automated Collection System's case management abilities to contact taxpayers, review their case histories, and issue notices, liens, or levies to resolve the cases.

The IRS Automated Collection System is a three-tiered Customer Information Control System, or CICS, application. CICS is a venerable IBM mainframe system still used by many major companies and governmental agencies.

The IRS pilot program includes licenses for Micro Focus' Mainframe Express Enterprise Edition system. MFEEE enables users to migrate their software application development environment off of the mainframe and onto Windows. By moving off the mainframe, developers are able to build and maintain software applications with greater ease of use, improved speed and efficiency.
