Replace Natural®/Adabas® with ConsistADS®/DB2® eliminating conversion efforts while preserving investment and business rules.
ConsistADS® - Advanced Development Solution provides the user with all the tools to take advantage of legacy applications written in NATURAL®, by automatically converting the source codes to Consist's ADVANCE® language and making them available for compilation and execution. It is an integrated development environment that includes the ADVANCE® language, the DB2® Database and the ConsistDMS® component that converts the ADABAS® Database to DB2®.
ConsistDMS® - A ConsistADS® component that automatically converts the ADABAS® Database structure to DB2® and aligns converted programs with the definitions of the new relational data model.
ConsistADS® safeguards investments made in applications developed in the Natural® language, by allowing them to be converted to the ADVANCE® language which runs on any platform. The architecture of the ConsistADS® Integrated Development Environment combines features that allow organizations of any size to develop business applications rapidly and efficiently, meeting the most up-to-date requirements of Information Technology. Designed to provide portability and scalability, ConsistADS® is available in Z/OS, Z/Linux Mainframe and in the main Unix, Linux and Windows platforms.
ConsistADS® provides functionalities to edit, compile, debug, install and distribute objects allowing an application to be developed and tested from any network node and made available to run on any platform. This flexibility results in cost reduction and maximum profitability from the existing resources, greatly contributing to increase productivity by the development team as it allows developers to work remotely, since the only requirement of the developer workstation is a Web browser.
ConsistADS® has a robust communication layer that provides transparency among two or more applications, regardless of platform, data contents, data formats and protocols.
Using a Web portal, ConsistADS® is the ideal environment to efficiently develop Web and non-Web applications across several platforms. Additional development components are available to implement Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and integrate with Business Process Management (BPM) tools.
