Delta NewsletterNewsletter - Tuesday, 03. May 2022

Dear Reader,

When the existing doesn't really fit anymore and thwarts new development, the call for "We'll make everything new with ..." is quickly heard. But, it is worth taking a closer look: Why should everything be redone if the basic functionality of the applications has proven its worth and does not change? What exactly is bothering you? And can the desired goals perhaps be achieved much faster with a targeted modernisation?

Instead of making everything new, the insurance group Provinzial Rheinland decided to migrate their proven applications from IBM IMS/DB to Db2 in cooperation with Delta. They thus created future security and, above all, freedom for new development much faster than with a re-implementation of the existing functionality. Read more in our report.

And thinking even further: Can targeted modernisation become part of the normal development process? At the workshop "Software Reengineering & Evolution" of the German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik - GI), we presented a sustainable solution and its practical utilisation by a customer. Read the detailed article about the "Washing Machine that Automatically Cleans up Technical Debts".

We have also provided a new version of our generative development system Delta ADS for you.

We wish you an insightful read and look forward to your enquiries and feedback.

Support NewsWe have released a new version of our generative development system Delta ADS for COBOL. With the release 6.5.1 a new optimisation option for the code generation has been implemented:
Using the option OPT-L, you can have the control code for iterations be optimised.

Do you already know the option OPT-O?
Using this option will optimise the generation of control statement and thus will minimises the generation of GOTOs.

In addition, we have released a new version of our plugin ADS on Micro Focus Enterprise Developer (7.2.4).

You can find more information about new features and fixes in the release notes at the support area of our website.

GI-Workshop „Software-Reengineering & Evolution“Dr. Daniela Schilling presented a concept and the solution as well as its utilisation by Delta's client RDW in order to make applications quickly and safely fit for the future at the 24th Software Reengineering & Evolution workshop of the German Informatics Society's (GI) special interest group on Software Reengineering (SRE):

  • A Washing Machine for Software - Automated Clean-up of Technical Debts"A Washing Machine for Software - Automated Clean-up of Technical Debts"

What does a sustainable strategy for eliminating technical debts look like?
RDW has been developing and maintaining its core backend applications for more than 30 years. The applications run reliably, but over time technical debts have accumulated, making maintenance and further development difficult. RDW and Delta have jointly developed a sustainable solution to this problem: A washing machine that automatically cleans the software from the technical debts.

Delta NewsletterNewsletter - Thursday, 31. March 2022

Dear Reader,

In time – in budget - in scope! This is exactly how projects should be completed.

Find out how Gothaer Systems managed to do this in cooperation with us on a major modernisation project as part of their "Smarter Mainframe" strategy in our first article.

Yes, many things can be done online! But some things are better when you can sit down together face-to-face. And it's just nice to be able to meet you in person again. For example, we reported live at the SVA Mainframe Dayz about the very successful complete replacement of the data management system at Gothaer, one of the largest German insurance companies. The documents are available for you.

We also present the new release of ADS on Eclipse.

And speaking of knowledge transfer: reserve your place in our training courses now.

We wish you lots of ideas for preparing your applications for the future and we are looking forward to your enquiries.

Your Delta Software Technology Team

IMS Replacement: In Time – In Budget – In ScopeGothaer Systems migrates its IBM IMS Databases to IBM Db2 together with Delta Software Technology.

Automatically migrating from IBM IMS/DB to IBM Db2 was Gothaer Systems' task. The goal of operating only one database system on the mainframe brought Gothaer Systems and Delta Software Technology together. Delta offered the solution of know-how, suitable tools and services for this task. By building a tailor-made factory with the AMELIO Modernization Platform, the necessary steps for the transformation could be implemented automated, well calculated and at low risk.

“By migrating from IBM IMS/DB to IBM Db2 together with Delta, we have successfully mastered the next big step in the ‘Smarter Mainframe’ project.”
Burkhard Oppenberg, CIO, Gothaer Systems

Provinzial schafft vollständige Migration von IBM IMS/DB zu IBM Db2 mit DeltaWith the tools and services from Delta Software Technology, Provinzial Rheinland finished the complete application and data migration from IBM IMS/DB to IBM Db2, automated and securely, of over 75 IBM IMS databases and over 36,000 artefacts.

Due to the volume of the Provinzial application systems, the amount and complexity of the required changes, the tight schedule as well as their experiences with the manual conversion of some programs and databases, Provinzial decided on a tailor-made and fully automated solution with the tools from Delta Software Technology.

Hunting the Technology Zoo: Automated Technology Change with AMELIOAutomated Technology Change with AMELIO Modernization Platform

Does your application also contain technology crocofants or dinosaurs?
So, does it contain different technologies for the same task or outdated technologies that make it difficult to maintain and further develop the application efficiently or even prevent modernization?

Then we will show you here how we can tidy up your technology zoo with AMELIO and consolidate and exchange technologies in an automated way - parallel to ongoing operations.
