Delta NewsletterNewsletter - Thursday, 11th August 2022

Dear Reader,

Are there dino's and crocofants hiding in your apllications? Let us team up to fight your technology zoo: replace outdated by modern technologies or consolidate different tecnologies in an automated way.

Experience how you can regain knowledge over your legacy applications, support a know-how transfer or prepare a modernization project, with AMELIO Logic Discovery's new release.

All these, and more ideas about how to treat legacy applications, are summarized in a text series 'Iceberg ahead' by our colleague Hans Nickessen.

We also have released ADS on Visual Studio 2022 for you.

We wish you happy reading,

Your Delta Software Technology Team

AMELIO Logic Discovery: COBOL und PL/I verstehenWhich developer doesn't want that:
A clear presentation for large and complex applications, so that one can understand the logic and implementation simply and directly?

Learn how AMELIO Logic Discovery helps you understand complex applications, document knowledge and support knowledge transfer.

On July 23rd, 2022 we released a new release and a new flyer of AMELIO Logic Discovery.

Iceberg ahead

  • Are your COBOL or PL/I specialists retiring?
  • "Old" programs are no longer understandable?
  • Do you want or need to leave the mainframe?
  • JAVA is the new strategy?

In his series, our colleague Hans Nickessen explains his view on possible strategies for efficient, secure and cost-effective knowledge transfer, a platform change or application modernization.

"Iceberg Ahead!" Here is the start of the series:

Iceberg ahead: How you can successfully bring your COBOL or PL/I Applications into the Future without hitting an Iceberg

What to do if your specialists retire? If app developers show a presentable App on a tablet within a very short time or the accounting department shakes its head about the maintenance invoice for the mainframe again? If the management also questions everything strategically, it is time for you to act. Your job is to avoid the iceberg ahead. In this five-part series you can read how you can futureproof your “old” applications without hitting the iceberg.

Download Iceberg ahead: How you can successfully bring your COBOL or PL/I Applications into the Future without hitting an Iceberg

Iceberg ahead: Knowledge Transfer - Securing, Re-understanding, Optimizing and Passing on the Foundation (Part 2)

These three procedures are the prerequisite for securing the investments you have made so far, maintaining your applications efficiently and using them optimally. And finally, to successfully modernize these applications and keep them future-proof.

ADS on Visual StudioWith ADS on Visual Studio you can now standardize your working environments for the application development. ADS on Visual Studio smoothly integrates all ADS tools into your development environment.

This plugin is now also available for Microsoft Visual Studio 2022.

In addition to Visual Studio, plug-ins for Eclipse-based development environments are also available such as Micro Focus Enterprise Developer for z. The ADS plugins are Delta's modern integrated development environment (IDE) for the efficient development and maintenance of COBOL and PL/I applications with Delta ADS.

Bedag Informatik AGBedag: Same Development Environment for Different Programming Languages

A uniform process control and development environment for the different programming languages is the goal of many enterprises. The Bedag Informatik AG modernizes its development environment and combines the (Viacar) development in C# and Delta ADS for COBOL in a .NET framework under Microsoft Visual Studio.

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.

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.

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.
