Quotes about AMELIO Logic Discovery - AMELIO Logic Discovery is an innovative analysis tool that helps you to improve your understanding of your ADS, COBOL and PL/I applications and to ensure the relevant functionality.
Quotes about AMELIO Modernization Platform - Change your large-scale IT applications with a tailor-made factory: securely, reliably, error-free and 100% automated.
|“The Delta solution has its advantages in two points that are particularly important to us: Due to the complete automation of the transformation, the ongoing development of the system, as requested by the business, was uninterrupted during the entire project. Due to the in-place migration and a parallel operation concept, we achieved absolute security and quality during the migration. The guaranteed operational “smoothness” in the project, despite the complex modernization, is certainly a unique feature of the solution.”
“We were impressed by the efficiency and flexibility the AMELIO factory was set up and continuously optimised with. The very good and close cooperation with the Delta managers and employees also contributed significantly to the success of the project.”
“Thanks to Delta's transformation strategy, Provinzial succeeded in migrating absolutely securely from IBM IMS to IBM Db2. At the same time, this solution gave us absolute flexibility, as components that had already been transformed and those that had not yet been transformed could be used productively together without any problems.”
|"In the end our decision paid off. Using an automated approach also means almost no freeze and the possibility to change implementations at a very late stage. It enabled us to improve on the end result without any problem. With a manual approach, we would have passed the moment to do something in a different way long before."
Division Manager ICT
|"We now see Delta’s AMELIO Modernization Platform as a kind of washing machine. As long as we chose the right program it will remove a ‘stain’ (technical debt) from our applications. It’s a great solution for when we have mass changes that need to be carried out on our application portfolio."
"A decisive factor in selecting AMELIO was its new meta-level test concept: It allows us to save 90% and more of the test effort and costs. The flexible In-place Migration ensures minimal blocking times as we can combine in production already transformed and not yet transformed components without any problem."
"AMELIOʹs technology and the close cooperation with Delta guarantee a transformation quality that meets our high quality and security standards."

"Delta worked with us to study and understand the current situation and then define the best migration strategy. The solution presented by Delta was an ideal match to our needs."
"Using Delta's products and services guarantee that our applications are independent of the deployment platform and database product – a critical success factor for GEQ."
We have been impressed by the close co-operation and assistance of the whole Delta team throughout the evaluation period and pilot project."
|"Since 1980 we have developed many thousands of programs for IBM z/OS and IMS using Delta's application generation system ADS. Working closely with Delta on our Y2K project we used AMELIO to automatically discover all Y2K-impacted code. The extent to which AMELIO automated the project was truly amazing. The tool delivered absolutely reliable results. Thanks to AMELIO this essential project was completed on time and within budget and we celebrated the 31st December 1999 without worrying."
Quotes about ADS Application Development for COBOL and PL/I - Platform independent development for future-proof back-end applications.
|"For more than 20 years now we successfully use Delta tools to develop and maintain our large scale and complex banking solutions. The excellent implementation of the principle of generative software development by all Delta tools enables us to develop our software products platform independently and with the highest possible degree of automation. Thereby we meet our customer’s demands on reliability and quality."
|"The guaranteed long-term support of Delta tools is and always was of vital importance for us. This also includes their continuous enhancement to fit new demands, to always be state of the art. An excellent example for this is the comprehensive integration into the standard Eclipse. This perfectly matches our strategy of a modern and future-proof development landscape."
Head of Architecture & Quality Management
|"The new ADS 6 enables us to further improve the efficiency and quality of our software development and maintenance. For example new functions for the detailed documentation and description of the generating process help us to securely and fast perform changes and enhancements on our large scale and complex applications."
Application Development Manager
“We can now create BS2000-UTM applications as well as callable mainframe servers from our Delta/ADS programs: with only a new macro set, and without having to change the Delta/ADS applications in any way.”
“This project pointed out that ADS from Delta Software truly is a piece of gold. The platform change was in principle a push of a button.”
|Dr. Eckhard Otto
“We saw once again how valuable generators are: our BS2000-UTM applications now even allow us to be multi-channel capable.”
"Our BS2000 applications are being revived by being usable in our enterprise portal."
|"The Delta development tools make it much easier for us to implenment new requirements and to react to changing circumstances. Our applications are now mostly platform independent and we are extending their useful lifetime. That represents real money."
Manager Software Architecture and Support
|“Without ADS we would never have been able to develop and port the GUI client/server and Internet solutions so quickly and efficiently – from Microsoft MS-DOS to IBM OS/2 and then onto Microsoft Windows!”
|“After installation of the Plug-in we tested the generated output and it was 100% identical. Therefore we will go productive with the Delta ADS development on Eclipse in the beginning of 2019. As developers we can now work in one environment without having to switch between SCOUT² and Eclipse.”
Quotes about SCORE Adaptive Bridges - Intelligent service enablement for the reuse of proven applications with modern technologies: flexible, profitable and non-invasive.
Application Development Manager
|“After only a few steps I could already imagine the structure of the complete integration project.”
“SCORE Adaptive Bridges lets us ‘build bridges’ between the old and new worlds – without detailed technical skills in the middleware or portal environments.”
|Dr. Eckhard Otto
|“Making infrastructure decisions is much simpler due to the platform independence of the services: we create the model only once and can then produce adapters for every portal environment and every middleware at the press of a button.”
|"One of the key reasons we have selected SCORE Adaptive Bridges is that we can make our mission-critical applications available as services that we can quickly and easily reuse – without any extra effort – in other contexts, for example in a Service-Oriented Architecture, Enterprise Portals etc."
|“Our experience with SCORE in the prototype and pilot phase were confirmed when we scaled up to the real project – 60 developers, 30,000 source files and 12,000,000 lines of code. SCORE delivers what it promises. SCORE handled our complex legacy architecture. We chose the right solution.”
Manager Application Architecture and Methods
|“We generated services for diverse middleware and platform combinations – SCORE Integration Suite handled this effortlessly. We set an aggressive schedule for this project. We were impressed that using SCORE Integration Suite we managed to consistently achieve productivity improvements of 400% to 600%. We are now working on our strategy for future projects with Delta.”
|"Using SCORE we pave the way for new forms of business processes such as the Internet with their very different requirements. SCORE allows us to economically reuse proven functions in new applications. In this way we are able to respond faster and reduce risks – to the benefit of our customers."
|"SCORE and SCOUT² make it much easier for us to implenment new requirements and to react to changing circumstances. Our applications are now mostly platform independent and we are extending their useful lifetime. That represents real money."
Quotes about SCORE Data Architecture Integration - Data as real business services: fast, easy and independent of data architectures and management systems.
"The fact that we did platform, database and application architecture transformation in one step was way beyond what we expected to be possible. SCORE Data Architecture Integration proved to be the robust and reliable product we needed to keep our data secure and available during this project."
"Delta proposed a completely different scenario. They suggested producing with SCORE Data Architecture Integration one data service for each and every program, in a first step even for our old Unisys OS 2200 platform. Our applications would access the RDMS data on Unisys OS 2200 through these services only.
"After our application architecture had been modernized that way, the next step could take place:
"SCORE's configurable nature enabled us to implement a database error handling registration that cooperated with our old error handling. Modernized and not yet modernized programs did share that part of their functionality. Also the fact that we could decide how and with what middleware the remote solution would be implemented was an important bonus for us."
"When Delta suggested using SCORE Data Architecture Integration to develop data access services instead of changing the existing SQL CALL interface code in our existing programs to Embedded SQL, we first had to think about that. In the end the solution has proven to be a key factor that enabled us a smooth step by step migration. Besides, the automated approach that comes with SCORE Data Architecture Integration has improved the quality of the data accesses in our programs."
"SCORE Data Architecture Integration also influenced the quality of our software development. In the old situation our programmers had to decide what programs were affected by a database change and had to implement the changes by hand. Using SCORE with its automated approach all relevant data access services are checked against a change in the data model and only if there is a compatibility issue a programmer is needed to carry out the necessary changes. As a result of this we have much more certainty that our programs are correctly using the database."
"SCORE Data Architecture Integration enabled us to free our application portfolio from its database dependence. Its comprehensive support of distributed applications and automated production of data services for the different mainframe (UNISYS RSA RDMS) and open systems (Microsoft SQL Server) allowed a smooth migration without risk."
"Working with the people from Delta proved to be a very good choice. They delivered when other companies couldn't. From RDW's point of view Delta is a highly dedicated company with an even higher level of expertise."
Quotes about SCOUT² Development Platform - Optimized and integrated development processes across all software components, tools and platforms: Stop the “fight against the infrastructure”.
"At RDW we have sensitive applications and very personal data. The security and quality of our development processes are our highest priority. SCOUT² not only allows us to support our mainframe and PC-based development processes, but it also fully embraces our special security and quality management processes."
"Delta’s SCOUT² Development Platform not only allows us to support our Unisys OS2200 mainframe and PC-based development processes, but it is also fully embraces our special security and quality management processes."
|"Migrating to SCOUT² release 4.0 is very simple and was certainly worth it for us: The user interface is now even more intuitive and one feels immediately at home."
|"SCOUT² isolates the developer from many technical details, dramatically simplifying their work as well as preventing many possible sources of errors. For example, processes such as Generation, Compilation and File Transfers are handled in the background fully automatically by SCOUT²."
"The new user interface in SCOUT² makes our developers more productive. Detailed information is always available with a single click, but does not waste screen space when it is not required."
“With this migration project we have achieved multiple objectives within the budgeted time and cost.
Software Development Environment Project Leader
|"SCORE bringt uns einen erheblichen Qualitätsgewinn, den wir erst noch mit weniger Aufwand erreichen: Denn generierter Code ist ganz einfach richtig – der Aufwand für die Qualitätssicherung und das Testen vermindert sich beträchtlich.

Quotes about HyperSenses - Integrated system for model driven development of DSLs and software generators.
|Hessel van Tuinen
|"HyperSenses has enabled HT Applications to support of a manifold of platform and customer variants of our smartphone apps without the burden of implementing the same functionality over and over again."
Manager Software Engineering
|"I can imagine that model-driven development and product lines can bring similar innovative leaps like we achieved by the use of Delta ADSplus and SCORE for our platform-independent product development."
Manager Application Architecture and Methods
|"The flexibility of the SCORE Integration Suite technology impressed us. Delta's technology handled all the integration details, allowing us to maintain our critical systems while building new adaptive interfaces. Tools like “HyperSenses” and “ANGIE” show the way that mainstream development will probably be done in the future.”
