Dear Reader,

  • Legacy is productive software, existing investment, reliable basis of business processes.
  • Legacy is outdated, no longer understandable, a brake block for new development.

Which of these statements do you agree with? And what does one have to do with the other?

With the articles in today's Delta Newsletter, we share with you some insights of how you can free your software legacy from negative characteristics and how you can unleash with little effort resources for important new development.

We wish you an inspiring read.

AMELIO1. Insurer Makes Important Core Application Fit for the Future

A large insurer has renovated a key component of his core application with the solutions from Delta Software Technology. Delta's AMELIO-Tools for automated analyses, code clean-up and re-documentation ensure a future-proof application infrastructure and an easy know-how transfer to the application heirs.

To solve the issue, Delta proposed a automated multi step approach, consisting of code clean-up, thorough analysis of the sources, refactoring, re-documentation and workshops for knowhow transfer.

Dear Reader,

70-80% of IT development projects exceed deadlines and budgets or fail altogether, according to the Standish Group analysis. If you want to choose the best strategy, to estimate costs and risks accurately and to lead your projects to success, check out our new service for Tailor-made Application Assessments.

Today's newsletter also includes the new training dates, information on new product versions and the latest information from the Guide Share Europe (GSE) Spring Conference on how to make your applications fit for the future.

We wish you an informative read.

Application Assessment1. Don’t guess – Assess

Do you want to change or modernize your COBOL or PL/I applications, to consolidate your IT landscape or to replace technologies? According to a study of the Standish Group, 70 – 80 % of the IT development projects exceed deadlines and budgets or even fail entirely.

If you want to make well-founded and reliable decisions for large change projects and to ensure the success of your projects, you should investigate the possibilities of tailor-made application assessments.

Current Product Versions – Plan Your Updates now!4. 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.

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.

With the new representation of the analysis results, the complete knowledge about your data structures, their declaration, usage, and dependencies is available directly at a glance.

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.

New Release of AMELIO Logic Discovery

With the new release of AMELIO Logic Discovery, all you want to know about the data structures of your applications is available at a glance. Thus, you understand your applications even faster.

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.
