The discrete BFKL formalism which accounts for the running of the coupling and incorporates information about the phase of the oscillations at small transverse momentum, arising from the infrared properties of QCD, leads to a QCD pomeron consisting of a set of discrete Regge poles. Here we discuss under what circumstances this discrete pomeron leads to an amplitude which matched the prediction of a DGLAP analysis in the double leading logarithm limit.
