Delta NewsletterDear Reader,

Full of energy, we are starting this new year! Finally, we can meet you again in person: at events and at your company. We very much hope to see you at SVA Mainframe Dayz and at the GSE Technical University. Look forward to the presentation of our washing machine for software.

In the text series "Iceberg ahead", our colleague Hans Nickessen describes his experiences in dealing with legacy applications. Read in the current episode how the modernisation of legacy applications helps to reduce costs and risks.

We also have some product updates, new training dates and, of course, the highlights from 2022 for you.

We hope you enjoy reading and we are looking forward to a lively exchange.

Your Delta Software Technology Team

SVA Mainframe Dayz 2023Let's meet Delta

COBOL and PL/I applications perform their service reliably every day. But the longer the applications live, the more dirt and technical debts accumulate in the applications, making maintenance and further development increasingly difficult and error-prone. Also, in the run-up to modernisation projects, it is advisable to clean-up applications in order to avoid errors and to reduce costs.

GSE Technical University - Mainframe ModernizationAt the following events, we will report on how you can clean-up your applications in an agile way using a software washing machine:

  • SVA Mainframe Dayz 2023 | 07.-08.03.2023, Wiesbaden (Germany)
  • GSE Technical University - Mainframe Modernization | 20.-21.03.2023, Kassel (Germany)

By the way, the presented approach and technology is also perfectly suited for a safe, step-by-step modernisation of applications.

You cannot attend the events? We would be happy to present the AMELIO Software Washing Machine to you in a personal meeting. Simply get in touch with us.


Iceberg Ahead: Hard to Port or Risk MinimizationIceberg Ahead: Hard to Port or Risk Minimization

Changing large, productive IT applications is associated with high costs, risks and an enormous amount of time. The race in the areas of agility, adaptability, and the adoption of new requirements is becoming increasingly difficult. The costs for the maintenance and further development of the application are increasing. The productive lifetime of business functions is often measured in decades. Technologies, on the other hand, have a much shorter lifespan. For such transformation projects, you therefore need flexible tools that change your applications in a targeted manner - without endangering functionality and thus the important day-to-day business.

Our colleague Hans Nickessen reports in his text "Hard to Port or Risk Minimization" about how modernization contributes to cost reduction.

IMS Replacement at Gothaer: In Time – In Budget – In ScopeOur Highlights in 2022

The pressure to reduce costs and at the same time increase flexibility is a permanent companion of IT departments. For our customers, especially for banks and insurance companies, this has brought the consolidation of database systems into focus. Our reports on the successful replacement of old database systems such as IBM IMS therefore met great interest.
