Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, 2007/03/07 - seeMore a provider of enterprise class data products, today announced that is has added the ability to automatically migrate and access COBOL Files stored in relational databases and provides this capability without source code modification.
“We have worked with Micro Focus to provide the ability for standard COBOL I/O statements, in existing COBOL programs, to transparently and in real-time, store information in relational databases. This provides all of the benefits of relational data access without the costs and risks involved of rewriting COBOL READ, WRITE etc as embedded EXEC SQL statements.” explains Phillip Carruthers, CEO, seeMore Technologies. “Tests have shown that this can be achieved without performance degradation and in fact in many cases performance actually improves”.
Support is also provided for accessing existing COBOL Files as if they were relational and as such speed and flexibility of migration initiatives are greatly enhanced.
“seeMore is clearly helping align COBOL applications with the Enterprise,” explains Michael Waters, Directory Strategic Alliances, Micro Focus. “By transparently mapping COBOL file calls to relational database management systems, like Oracle Database 10g, customers can improve data quality and data access, while integrating the latest third-party software into their core Micro Focus systems.”
These capabilities bring COBOL Files access within the federated enterprise Virtual Database capabilities of the seeMore Virtual Database server which provides a unique, high performance, cost-effective means for corporations to extract business-critical data from disparate data sources and present it in a coherent "virtual database," providing companies with a single view of all their information in real-time.
