The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) wanted to upgrade and modernize its complex student information system while preserving existing functionality. With help from ATERAS, UCSB converted its code and data from its suite of Software AG ADABAS-Natural applications on an IBM mainframe to a platform based on Windows Server 2008 R2 enterprise and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. As a result, UCSB has gained a more flexible foundation for implementing new technologies; eased management; and provided uninterrupted service for 75,000 new applicants each year, 23,000 students and thousands of staff and faculty.
