NatWorks is proud to announce our partnership with CoSort -
Innovative Routines International (IRI), Inc.  As a pre-requisite to providing PLOG Processing to ADABAS customers utilizing the UNIX, Linux or Windows platforms, a robust SORT solution is required.

The NatWorks partnership and relationship with CoSort is a direct result of NatWorks' search to obtain robust SORT capabilities in the UNIX, Linux and Windows environments in order to support the rigorous demands of development and testing our software.

NatWorks highly recommends CoSort / IRI to any organization that require production-ready SORT capabilities; whether this need arises as a prerequisite for NatWorks software, or otherwise.

NatWorks today announced that it has come to an agreement with Treehouse Software, Inc., (TSI) of Sewickley, PA, to provide principal worldwide sales and marketing for NatWorks products.

With the addition of the NatQuery and NatCDC products, native data extraction and change data capture solutions for ADABAS, TSI bolsters its portfolio of ADABAS data extraction and integration tools. These currently include: tRelational/DPS, the leading ADABAS-to-RDBMS Extract-Transformation-Load (ETL) and Change Data Capture (CDC) product; DPSync, the industry's only real-time ADABAS-to-RDBMS data propagation product; and DPS X-Link, the ADABAS/XML "instant integration" product.

According to George Szakach, President of TSI, "For years, we have delivered an increasingly rich and broad array of ADABAS extraction products.  With NatQuery and NatCDC, we are able to meet the needs of customers that want a proven GUI-based ADABAS query, extraction, and CDC toolset.  These NatWorks products are easy to deploy and use.  They integrate readily with a multitude of targets, from spreadsheets to replicated ADABAS files.  Furthermore, NatQuery and NatCDC offer cross-platform and non-mainframe ADABAS extraction capability that TSI would otherwise have had to develop to meet the demands of customers using ADABAS on UNIX, Linux and Windows platforms.  It is now completely clear that Software AG customers, consultants, systems integrators, and others can turn to TSI to fulfill any imaginable ADABAS ETL/CDC or data integration requirement.  Offerings from all other vendors pale in comparison to TSI's in completeness of vision, product maturity, productivity and efficiency, and richness of features."

Chris Bradley, NatWorks President, adds, "We are delighted with this new relationship. TSI's well-established and highly respected presence in the Software AG community will give NatQuery and NatCDC access to a much-expanded, worldwide customer market.  With sales, marketing and technical support in the capable hands of TSI, we can focus on continued development and enhancement of our software and services. The TSI and NatWorks product lines complement each other and allow Software AG customers to choose the best possible product or combination of products from a single vendor -- a vendor that also happens to be the foremost ISV in the market space."
