[From Oracle Corp.
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Jun. 16, 2004 - (http://www.oracle.com/tellmemore/?3196358) Acucorp, Inc., a leading provider of legacy application modernization and extension solutions, and Oracle Corp. today announced they are offering companies the tools to facilitate migration of legacy assets from proprietary legacy platforms to a wide range of open, less expensive computing platforms.
Acucorp's ACUCOBOL-GT development system has been certified for use with Oracle(r) Database 10g and Oracle9i Database -- providing COBOL connectivity to Oracle's state-of-the-art products. As a result, organizations and independent software vendors (ISVs) can embed SQL statements in a host ACUCOBOL-GT program and use that program to access Oracle databases through the Oracle Pro*COBOL pre-compiler. This eliminates the need for costly application re-engineering and re-writing and allows organizations to leverage their existing IT assets, dramatically lowering their total cost of ownership and increasing their return on investment when compared to other modernization alternatives.
