If you have COBOL applications on AIX and are not taking advantage of Rational's compilers and the new Developer for POWER, you are not taking full advantage of the system, and could be compromising the performance of your application. Here is a great over view of the new C++ and COBOL features in Rational Developer for Power. The productivity features go above and beyond the C++ toolkit for Eclipse. Don't discount that! Time is money, and if you can get a job done faster, that performs better, why are you still hand coding and analyzing it all?
