What are the advantages of converting a PC-based Cobol application to a P- based relational database?
The most compelling advantage of converting legacy data into a relationaldatabase management system (RDBMS) is the improved accessibility of thedata. There now is a tremendous selection of tools and applicationdevelopment systems for accessing a RDBMS. You can create betterinterfaces to your data, use the latest data warehousing and data miningtools, publish data on the Internet, provide access from disparateinterfaces, and much more. In short, it’s something like building afreeway where there was only a one-lane dirt road before.
