ATERAS® Announces Contract for Adabas Natural Re-hosting Solution to one of the Nation's Largest Pension Systems

DALLAS, Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ATERAS announced today a new project with one of the nation's largest pension systems to re-host its historical member data from a legacy mainframe Adabas database to a relational database structure while retaining the Natural-based applications look, feel and functionality on a Windows platform for use by pension members.

The existing Adabas/Natural-based applications and data will move from a mainframe environment to an off mainframe relational database and the ATERAS ATP® Natural Re-Hosting solution.

The Application Transparency Platform® is a revolutionary Natural application code Re-Hosting solution that provides much lower license costs, higher productivity and full preservation of legacy assets and business rules. ATP dramatically reduces the time for the replacement cycle and accelerates the return on investment. The ATP solution transforms Adabas databases and data to a relational database – DB2, SQL Server or Oracle – and processes Natural programming code using ATP Language (ATPLTM) on Windows.

"Our ATP Re-Hosting solution is a perfect fit for the historical pension environment" said Scott Miller, President and CEO of ATERAS. "Pension members will continue to have the same access to their historical data without the need for expensive licenses and without the expense of a lengthy conversion project."

In 2011, the existing mainframe based pension system was replaced with a new system, but members of the pension system continued to access their historical information through existing mainframe screens. Officials want to retire the mainframe hardware and software platform in the shortest possible timeframe but allow users continued access to the historical data, which prompted the contract with ATERAS.

"ATERAS' ATP re-hosting product is a proven approach for migrating Natural/Adabas applications to a Windows Server," said Bob Ellsworth, Microsoft Worldwide Director of Platform Modernization.  "The decision to migrate the pension system using the ATERAS solution demonstrates the belief in this approach to deliver the desired TCO, with accelerated delivery and minimal risk."

With the ATERAS ATP developer environment, Natural programmers continue to program in their familiar language while enjoying a greatly enhanced IDE with additional tools and services.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
