Dear Delta Interessent,
Replacing old database technology, better understanding PL/I applications, development of Data Access Server: Our tools help you to reduce costs and risks.
Getting rid of old database technology? We present different alternatives for a secure migration from expensive IMS databases to relational systems like ORACLE, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server.
Understanding PL/I applications easily? Insurance company LVM Versicherung tests AMELIO Logic Discovery for PL/I.
And: We offer new analyses and reports to help you develop and maintain data servers generated with ADS DBI or SCORE.
We hope you enjoy reading and look forward to your feedback.
Your Delta Software Technology Team
Old database technology causes high cost and complicates the utilisation of new technology for central IT applications. Furthermore, there are less and less developers and system technicians knowing the old technology. This applies to hierarchical databases such as IBM IMS DB as well as for network and other non-relational databases.
We present ways that allow you to preserve the functionality of your applications while migrating to SQL databases without risk.
Quite a few companies still have their critical core business applications developed in PL/I. These have become increasingly complex over time, but still it is expected, that they can be adapted quickly and safely to new professional requirements or that their functionality can be implemented n another language, for example in JAVA.
Solving such modernization tasks is not possible without understanding the functionality of each application, its implementation and the cooperation between individual programs.
You can find out why LVM Versicherung did search for a tool that could perform in-depth analyses of their PL/I applications, how they discovered AMELIO Logic Discovery for PL/I encountered to and now started a Proof on Concept, here...
We have provided new updates for our development platforms ADS on Eclipse and SCOUT². They increase working comfort and facilitate the understanding of Delta applications.
Generation Reports for data access servers for DBI and SCORE are now also available. As a result of feedback by our users we also have extended numerous functions in ADS on Eclipse. Version ADS on Eclipse 6.4 now also supports Eclipse Luna (4.4).
