Case Studies and Customer Experiences

Fiserv Uses Databorough's X-Analysis to Document Core Banking Engine

"Fiserv's experience with Databorough's support team has also been phenomenal, says Rohit Patel, Fiserv's Vice President of iSeries Technical Development."


X-Analysis has helped Fiserv enhance productivity and understanding of its core banking application environment and is now a standard part of Fiserv's development process. Fiserv's customers have also benefited by the company's increased awareness, which has resulted in faster development time and problem determination and has also let Fiserv product value-add technical documentation. From Fiserv's perspective, the use of X-Analysis has been a smashing success, Cowen says. Read more...

Bertram group

Largest UK wholesaler of books to retail, internet and library sectors.


The ISBN product identifier used in the publishing industry since the 70's is being expanded into a full 13 digit EAN13 from 1/1/2007. The field therefore needed to be expanded in millions of lines of RPG, DDS, displays and report.


Similar expansion projects also carried out for 6 other legacy fields which were no longer adequate to support the increase volume of business.


Improve the speed of analysis for ongoing projects through use of X-Analysis. Read more...


Innovative Computing

Modifying complex code can be a nightmare. A "minor" change to a field or object might impact hundreds or thousands of touch-points buried throughout an application. Failure to account for any of those touch-points can have serious consequences. For software companies, such as Innovative Computing Corporation, maintaining multiple software versions that run on different operating system releases multiplies the challenge. And the consequences of mistakes are amplified when the company delivers its software to its many customers. Those are some of the reasons why Innovative uses X-Analysis from Databorough to gain greater visibility into its software code. Read more...

Dial rent-a-car

The company is based in Paris and offers contract car leasing facilities around France and Europe. Dial Rent-a-Car was the first company to use Databorough's complete service to address the problem of the year 2000. Their problem became pressing in 1995 simply because many of their contracts were for five years and they would be experiencing "millennium" problems the following year as a result. Jean-Marc Jouniaux, the Senior Project Manager explains the situation: "We needed the lowest-cost solution available because the company had made no decision on the long-term computing strategy for the future. At the same time we needed a fast solution because our long-term contracts were normally for five years and we were in danger of failing to manage the business." Read more...



Doubleday operates book and music clubs with well over 500,000 members in Australia and New Zealand. It is a subsidiary of Bertelsmann AG, a German media group with interests in book clubs, publishing, music, printing, film, television and radio. Doubleday embarked on a number of challenges. Firstly to transport all of its COBOL applications on the current Prime system to an IBM AS/400, and secondly to rewrite and enhance the current system using a CASE tool.

Atlas Copco

Atlas Copco is a Swedish company that specializes in manufacturing compressors, power tools and construction and mining tools. Because their applications are installed in over 60 Atlas Copco companies worldwide - each of which has its own local applications and interfaces - sufficient time was needed to roll out the updated apps to each sales office, which would then require time to apply local changes to their core systems. Clearly, Atlas Copco's core millennium compliancy was needed in a hurry. For several years, Atlas Copco had been relying on Datasolve Systems International, in Kent, England, to assist in the support and development of its BPCS system. A study team from Atlas Copco and Datasolve chose Databorough's X-2000 product. Read more...
