With the ATERAS® Adabas Natural conversion, Natural applications are automatically and completely converted to C# .NET or to CICS COBOL, providing functional equivalency and high speed in the new environments. The resulting C# and COBOL applications are multi-tiered, providing User Interface, Business Logic and full-feature SQL-based Data Access layer processing.
ATERAS uses DB-Shuttle® to convert Natural component types to the target languages. Hundreds of customization options are possible as DB-Shuttle automatically converts Natural programs and subprograms, subroutines, maps, and local, global and parameter data area definitions. Former Natural Adabas database access is converted to process against the relational database of your choice. Click for more information on the ATERAS Adabas database conversion.
Natural Utility Replacement
The ATERAS solution also addresses the replacement of the utilities that are part of your current mainframe solution, including Entire Operations, Entire System Server, EntireX, Natural Construct, Natural Security, and Com-plete.
Automated Natural Conversion
With ATERAS and DB-Shuttle, Adabas Natural conversion is no longer a manual, time-consuming, error-prone process. The DB-Shuttle automation technology ensures the Natural conversion produces a functionally equivalent, high-performance relational application every time. Other languages that also access Adabas are easily converted using the ATERAS solution.
Natural Modernization Option
If your plans include changing the functionality or the look-and-feel of your Natural applications, see our Natural modernization solution for a fast and cost-effective way to replace Natural while enhancing your applications at the same time.
Natural Re-Host Option
If you'd prefer to retain your Natural code but want to reduce your licensing costs, see our Application Transparency Platform solution for a re-host environment that processes your existing Natural code without changes against a relational database converted from your original Adabas database.
