COBOLapplications are at the heart of many IT organizations’ portfolios. These COBOL applications typically run some of the most mission-critical applications that ensure continuity of operation or deliver competitive advantage. Within these systems is a wealth of valuable business data that, until now, was only accessible to those COBOL applications. Any requests for external access usually resulted in custom reporting or extract tools to be written, and frequently these would be “snapshots” of the data, not a live view.Overall the IT department ends up with more requests for custom solutions than they can afford to deliver, end-users are frustrated that they can’t access valuable business intelli-gence data and the company sees increased costs and reduced opportunities for increasing revenues.Product HighlightsMicro Focus AcuXDBC provides a simple solution to the challenges of valuable data held in COBOL systems in the ACUCOBOL Vision file system. By exposing industry-standard ODBC & JDBC interfaces onto the data, stan-dard business intelligence applications such as Microsoft Excel and Business Objects or other languages such as VB.NET, C# or Java can access the data without the user even be-ing aware they are dealing with COBOL data.Key Benefits Support for standard ODBC & JDBC interface makes it easy for standard data-base tools to be used on existing assets Expose COBOL data to standard business intelligence tools and other programming languages to enable real-time analytics for everyday business analysts Provides a standards-based interface to Java applications, enabling access to the COBOL across the IT portfolio, reducing duplication and encouraging integration of systemsKey FeaturesData Access FeaturesEnd users can access the data files using standard reporting applications. AcuXDBC includes the following features that ensure data access remains seamless: AcuXDBC provides an ODBC driver that enables users of popular Microsoft Office applications such as Access, Excel and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as Crystal Reports and modern programming languages, to connect to the COBOL data and execute SQL commands for data retrieval and manipulation purposes.Data SheetAcuXDBCSystem Requirements• Multiple Windows, UNIX and Linux platforms• Microsoft ODBC Driver Manager v3.5 or later (Windows only)• Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator v3.5 or later (Windows only)
