Discovery is a series of software utilities that analyze and collect information about mainframe sources for processing. It is the first step in creating the knowledge base ( KB).
Automated Documentation generates visual representations of the application including flow charts, connectivity diagrams, data and system flows, condition tables, business rules, complexity ratings, and business logic…on demand. The ability to visually understand and preserve programmer and business user knowledge increases the productivity of the programmer and business analyst, reduces maintenance time and costs and must be the first step of the modernization process.
Business Rule Extraction programmatically extracts relevant business logic and reformats this logic into business rules which are stored in the KB. The Business Rule functionality enables users to increase the business rule understanding by adding meaningful English Knowledge Notes at the application, program and business rule level, map them to policies or other functions and attach associated Word, Excel and PDF documents.
Procurement Library (PL) provides departments, organizations, etc. the ability to share existing application knowledge, contained in the KB with RFP vendors, 24/7 worldwide.
