mainframe cobol  the Architecture with a Mainframe Perspective In the rush to explore the “next big thing” in software technology, it’s easy to forget the huge investment you’ve already made in mainframe assets. These assets have performed the business functions that they were designed for, but it’s OK to remain open to new solutions too. By leveraging existing assets while moving to a service-based architecture, you can extend your existing business resources while saving money. Read More

A New Platform to Battle Software Bloat?
Lawson has unveiled a new standards-based business applications platform designed to increase overall application quality and improve the product lifecycle

mainframe cobol  Lawson initially provided custom mainframe software for Burroughs and IBM installations, the company has continually recognized and anticipated new computing trends by broadening its platform support and adding products. For example, it added IBM System/38 in 1981, IBM AS/400 (now IBM iSeries ) in 1988, UNIX in 1990, and Microsoft Windows NT in 1998. The company fully embraced open systems technology in 1985 by moving all development to a UNIX-based computer-aided software engineering (CASE) tool. In Read More

Many legacy applications had no data validation routines (it was common for data entry clerks to type anything into a field where they didn't know the correct value, just so they could get on to the next field).

Some legacy systems have been around for forty years or more, and even though they may still be working, and doing something useful, not all of them are worth keeping as is. In many circumstances, companies can get away with wrappering as a temporary measure. Eventually though, and contrary to what many vendors say, both vendors and user enterprises will be Read More

Justification of ERP Investments Part Three: Costs of Implementing an ERP System
Enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation costs can be divided into one-time costs and ongoing annual costs. Both types of costs can be segmented into

For illustrative and general guideline purposes, the software package costs range from $50,000 to $200,000 (USD) for smaller manufacturers. In addition to the ERP software package, one-time costs may include systems software, development of customized software, or integration with other applications. Hardware .
