The “Glory Days of MultiValue” — where dozens of PICK licensees competed for your business — are gone but not forgotten at Zumasys!
Like many of you, we have frustrations about one database vendor monopolizing our market. Lackluster innovation, continual price increases and the absence of a cloud strategy were just a few of the concerns that inspired Zumasys to acquire jBASE three years ago. If you have been keeping tabs on us since then, you know that we have been busy innovating and adding feature upon feature, making MultiValue more appealing and more relevant than ever.
And today, we are thrilled to unveil the next step in modernizing your PICK system.
It Is Here
jBASE 5.7 is now available for download.
jBASE’s powerful NoSQL-like architecture allows your existing PICK programs to run natively on the underlying operating system. Unlike older MultiValue databases, there is no pseudo code or VME (virtual machine environment), making it instantly familiar to modern developers and allowing it to easily connect to other databases, web services, and the latest SaaS applications through rich API-integration.
jBASE 5.7 gives you even more flexibility to design your applications around your business needs and not the capabilities of your database.
Benefit from our latest features including:
Improve performance and flexibility with automated file sizing.
As the name implies, the new files are dynamic, built from the ground up to continually work optimally as updates are made. They aren’t like traditional MultiValue files which are hashed files that get re-sized manually or in the background. Dynamic Files reduce administrative overhead and boost your application’s performance.
Eliminate the necessity of using environment variables to configure jBASE.
jBASE profiles completely eliminate the use of environment variables to configure jBASE. Profiles extend the jBASE configuration allowing new settings which have never been available before – including a new “zero-conf” mode that allows jBASE to run with zero external configuration. With jBASE 5.7, you can continue to use your traditional environment variables, the powerful new profiles, or a combination of the two for maximum flexibility and customization.
Integrate your business application with the web.
You may love your particular flavor of PICK, but your organization needs to keep up with the rapid pace of change and emerging technologies. At the same time, users are demanding a move from character-based interfaces to GUI and web; NoSQL data models, and of course, a strategy to embrace Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). jBASE offers all of this while maintaining a remarkably low annual maintenance price of just $70 per user.
Zumasys is offering a special trade-in discount for a limited time.
