ATERAS is pleased to offer a variety of solutions for companies looking to move away from the ADABAS database and Natural application platform. More expensive licensing fees have prompted many companies to review their options for transforming their ADABAS Natural systems into more modern implementations. The technologies that ATERAS offers makes this move a reality with shortened time frames, automated transitions and minimal retraining options.
ADABAS Natural Rehost
The award winning Application Transparency Platform (ATP®) allows you to retain your Natural applications while moving to a relational database. We transform your ADABAS database into the relational database of your choice and provide our Microsoft Windows based software to host your existing Natural applications. Your developers obtain an enhanced user interface to maintain and make improvements to your systems and your users continue functioning with the same screens they're used to. You no longer have to pay for legacy licenses!

ADABAS Natural Conversion and Migration
If you would prefer to move away from the ADABAS Natural platform ATERAS can perform an automated conversion or migration of your ADABAS databases, data and Natural applications. Our unique DB-Shuttle® technology allows us to automatically capture your existing ADABAS database structure and Natural applications, rename and restructure the contents according to rules you specify, and provide you with a new platform in a variety of relational databases and modern languages.

ADABAS Natural Documentation
Rounding out the solution offerings for ADABAS and Natural legacy systems is the ATERAS Enterprise Application Viewer (eav®).This unique tool connects to your legacy mainframe and reads through the Natural source code and other objects that run your existing system. Documentation is then automatically generated which includes object relationships, metrics, element statistics and rule details. eav allows your developers to get a handle on your legacy system and develop an in-depth understanding of the processes involved in your applications. This is an ideal starting point when considering an Adabas Natural transformation or modernization project.
