We offer a variety of solutions for organizations looking to move away from the Adabas database. Increasingly expensive licensing fees have prompted many to review their options for transforming these systems.

Understanding key issues


Increased costs

In 2012, after a strategy change, Software AG chose to maximize the revenue coming in for Adabas. Prices for Adabas quickly jumped into the hundreds of thousands of US dollars.

Diminishing talent pool

People who understand mainframe technology are steadily retiring, and most universities no longer offer mainframe instruction, increasing the shortage and cost of experienced programmers.
