COBOL in 2016: SQL, ACID, OLTP, and BIG Data Now Available with c-treeRTG

Businesses worldwide run on over 220 billion lines of COBOL code today. It would be a massive undertaking to replace the mission-critical business programs with a brand new language without introducing detrimental bugs. With this in mind, FairCom created c-treeRTG COBOL Edition. It is a fully operational transaction database that allows simultaneous SQL access to COBOL files. With no changes to the application logic, developers can now take advantage of the relational database models without rewriting their COBOL programs. And in this presentation we’ll show you how easy it is.

What You’ll Learn

  • How to modernize your COBOL app so you can further preserve your investment. In spite of being called “legacy,” most of these systems are part of the core systems in today’s major corporations.
  • How to eliminate data corruption in COBOL data files. C-treeRTG offers industrial quality on-line transaction processing (OLTP) supporting full ACID properties of transactions.
  • How to integrate your data files directly, in real-time, with your BI system using real-time SQL capabilities and transaction-oriented interfaces (JDBC, ODBC, PHP, ADO.NET, Python, etc.).
