Kronimus Betonsteinwerke AG uses COBOL-DBA with a special extension for RM COBOL against an Oracle database. The application - a production data collection incl. payroll and statistical evaluations (Windows Server, Citrix) - is written in COBOL and accesses an Oracle database.

Mr. Peter, system administrator, is convinced of both the stable operation and the reliable availability of PARKWAY support. Mr Peter also emphasises the uncomplicated data access without additional third-party products and tools.

Mr. Peter,

Provis AG, Winterthur, uses COBOL-DBA in conjunction with the Microsoft SQL Server under Windows. The application - a CRM system with a dynamic, office-oriented user interface - is written in COBOL and additionally parts were integrated in VB. The system is used by general contractors, authorities, builders' representatives and construction planners.

"The COBOL-DBA product made it possible for us, as a smaller software house, to realise the migration to an SQL database within a reasonable time and cost framework."
