I am curious if there is an experienced Software Developer out there who can help me with some questions...
Trying to figure out the amount of work to create a mainframe database. Basically, there is a system that has currently been desgined for a PC (not mainframe). The program has been created using D-Base.
The main function of the software is to collect data inputs and then automaitcally detect abnormalities in the data based off a set of conditions / logic that we have built into the system.
We are now looking to take the PC D-Base program and turn it into a mainframe operating program. As we understand we are not able to use D-Base for the mainframe version. Also, we are looking to make this avaiable to several types of mainframes.
I know this is very generic in scope, but anyone out there been through a similar exercise. What kind of costs are we looking at? What kind of time? Is it something we should go offshore with? How many lines of code are we talking here?
I am not technical at all but looking at a business plan that was presented to me and have some technical questions!
