Converting Legacy Data

Question:
What are the advantages of converting a PC-based Cobol application to a P- based relational database?

Answer:
The most compelling advantage of converting legacy data into a relational database management system (RDBMS) is the improved accessibility of the data. There now is a tremendous selection of tools and application development systems for accessing a RDBMS. You can create better interfaces to your data, use the latest data warehousing and data mining tools, publish data on the Internet, provide access from disparate interfaces, and much more. In short, it's something like building a freeway where there was only a one-lane dirt road before.
