Our KPMG project at UTHSC-Houston was a payroll system development using the code generator Transform Logic. Transform Logic was an alternative to the popular code generator TELON but was far more powerful (in my opinion) though it was extremely resource intensive.
I was involved with 2 projects at SMU, ten years apart. The first, beginning in 1989, was the integration of existing student records systems with newly acquired Dunn & Bradstreet financial software. Since the new software was developed accessing a database differing from the ADR Datacom DB that was already in place in the legacy systems, my job was to “fool” the i/o modules into believing they were accessing their own native databases. This involved accessing multiple files and setting the completion codes to satisfy the calling software.
Located in Richardson, Texas, UTD is a satellite campus of the University of Texas system.
