Dear Reader,

Summer time: time for planning, learning, software updates.

We hope you now find the time to plan your next steps. For example, for updating your development environment for ADS applications, or learning more about the possibilities to automate your software development. Do you want to understand the applications developed by others faster and better? Then AMELIO Logic Discovery will help you - and you have more time for other things.

We wish you many good ideas.

The Problem with Data Structures

To understand an application, it is essential to understand its data structures. But, in applications that have been implemented using procedural languages like COBOL or PL/I, either native or generative, the declarations, usage and dependencies are spread over the entire code or even are only implicit.

In order to facilitate the understanding of these applications, AMELIO Logic Discovery offers comprehensive data structure analyses.

Dear Reader,

IT modernisation remains to be a top priority. Following an invitation by the International Quality and Productivity Center (IQPC) we present possibilities for the automated software modernisation in Washington DC. In the GI-Workshop "Software Reengineering & Evolution" in Bad Honnef, Germany, we’d like to discuss with you how to automatically regain the application knowledge contained in COBOL and PL/I applications.

Investments for modernisation as well as costs for evolution and maintenance of your applications can be considerably be reduced by cleaning the applications. Best solution is automation: Have a look at our new AMELIO CleanUp Factory!

Furthermore, new product versions and product information are available for you.

Have fun reading.

Clean Up Your COBOL–, PL/I- and Delta ADS Applications2. Clean Up Your COBOL–, PL/I- and Delta ADS Applications

Flexibility and fast adaptability of core applications are prerequisites for an optimal software support of business processes. COBOL, Delta ADS and PL/I applications have grown over decades; they have been extended and adapted to new requirements. This has reduced the maintainability of the applications and significantly hinders their further development.

With the AMELIO CleanUp Factory by Delta Software Technology you can quickly and securely clean up your COBOL and PL/I as well as Delta ADS applications and thus regain the flexibility and adaptability of your core applications.

Current Product Versions – Plan Your Updates now!1. Current Product Versions – Plan Your Updates now!

Updating the development tools often collides with the project work. Why change something that works? But there are good reasons to update to the current versions:

  • Old product versions cause higher costs.
  • New features accelerate the development.
  • Error corrections avoid workarounds that make the next update more difficult.

You do not know how much your individual installations differ from the standard products and how to determine dependencies and efforts?

We help you to update to the current product versions quickly and easily.

Cutting Risks and Costs for Modernisation and Migration2. Cutting Risks and Costs for Modernisation and Migration

Changes across all applications are one of the permanent tasks of the IT departments in large companies. If and when thousands of modules of the productive IT application systems have to be changed, the answers to the following questions are essential:

  • How can you ensure consistency and quality of the changes?
  • How do you avoid blocking other projects?
  • How do you integrate changes from other projects into the mass changes?
  • How do you guarantee the safety and stability of the productive systems?
  • How do you manage the effort, costs and timing of the testing?

Modernisation: Consolidating Database Systems3. Modernisation: Consolidating Database Systems

Many companies are struggling against increasing costs resulting from the parallel use of different database technologies, the dwindling know-how and the growing expenditure for the further development and maintenance of the large and complex applications that ensure their daily business.

As an example for the consolidation of database systems, we explain the possibilities for replacing IBM IMS databases:

Whoever uses generative tools for the development of COBOL and PL/I applications wants to profit from the advantages also in the future. Thus, a modernisation must maintain the higher level of abstraction and thus go far beyond a simple language transformation.

Dear Reader,

modernising in order to cut costs and risks for applications and development systems, is and remains one of the most important topics for our clients.

The focus is on the central applications when it comes to language transformation as in the project of our new partner ELCA or the replacement of IBM IMS databases or the modernisation of generative development systems.
It is and remains exciting.

We wish you interesting reading and look forward to your feedback.

Guide Share Europe (GSE)1. Automated Replacement of IBM IMS Attracts Great Interest

At this year’s Spring Meeting of Guide Share Europe (GSE) we presented a solution to replace IBM IMS databases in an automated way. Many of the participating companies fight against increasing costs that result from the parallel use of various database technologies and the dwindling expertise as well as from the increasing effort for the further development and maintenance of the large and complex applications that have evolved over decades. Our topic therefore attracted a lot of interest and stimulated intensive discussions.
