In examining the various approaches to handling data extraction from ADABAS, two irrefutable facts immediately present themselves:
When it comes to handling data extraction from ADABAS, absolutely every procedure that will be needed can be accomplished using Natural, or Natural used in conjunction with ADABAS utilities. Not only will both of these approaches handle all aspects of your extraction needs, these two methods can deliver exceptional performance (please refer to the ADABAS Extraction Performance page) as well.
The problems in using a Natural or a Natural and ADABAS utility approach to data extraction from ADABAS boils down to two points:
The solution to both of these problems is: Intelligent Generation.
NatWorks has developed an intelligent Natural program generator, and the result of this development is our flagship product NatQuery. Using NatQuery, the Dependency On Expertise is reduced to having a knowledgeable person supply application-specific information to NatQuery once at initial configuration time - this knowledge is then stored and reused on demand. With this specific application knowledge captured, along with the inherent ADABAS and Natural intelligence which has been “built into” NatQuery, the Time required to generate complete, ready-to-execute, custom extraction processes is reduced to minutes instead of hours.
NatQuery is an application that addresses End-user extraction, Data Warehouse Extraction, simple data replication and basic Web Publishing in a single tool, and NatWorks is proud to offer NatQuery as the “missing link” between ADABAS and Natural.

NatWorks makes use of Adobe Acrobat to create PDF files for flexible viewing on the internet. If you do not have the Adobe Acrobat “reader” plug-in for your browser, you can obtain this free-of-charge from the Adobe Reader Web Site.
