DALLAS, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- ATERAS announced today at the Gartner IT Expo in Orlando, Florida, that Gartner recognizes ATERAS for the eav suite of products as a "Cool Tool Vendor".  ATERAS is a leading provider of solutions for legacy migration and modernization.  The ATERAS eav suite (eav and eavRPM) of tools was designed to preserve business critical applications while reducing costs and increasing productivity.

The eav suite of products allows organizations to capitalize on proven business processes. The eav product allows organizations to take on modernization efforts, within their own timelines and budgets, for their unique business needs. The resulting applications are native web applications that include no middleware and no ongoing license fees.

eav (Enterprise Application Viewer) can be used for impact analysis and full mainframe program documentation for Natural and COBOL.  eav is designed to allow users to review program, application and team relationships, as well as to traverse process and workflow.  As an APM tool, eav builds a powerful knowledgebase, automatically gathering source code from the production environment and providing quantitative and qualitative reports for the application portfolio.

eavRPM (eav for Rapid Program Modernization) allows mainframe developers to generate new business web-based applications in native C# or Java, without knowing C# or Java. COBOL and Adabas Natural developers can now copy and paste mainframe maps, business rules and other source code from mainframe languages to web pages quickly.  Mainframe analysts and developers can create customized, high powered and well documented applications in C# or Java that utilize HTML or Active Server Pages (ASP) Java Server Pages (JSP) presentation layer.

ATERAS provides the optimum cost effective solution for global enterprises to modernize their applications from non- relational technologies to relational technologies (DB2, Oracle, or SQL Server).The relational database can originate from a new design, a conversion, or a purchased COTS or ERP package. Once the relational database is defined, eavRPM empowers your existing programming staff to create modern applications via an easy-to-use graphical interface using the existing mainframe application. In fact, the users only need to know how the application works.
