Most daily operational data resides in host files systems, such as mainframe VSAM and the AS/400 physical files. Often, legacy programs written in COBOL and RPG control access to these data sources. To improve your processes, you need to collect and analyze this vital information with up-to-date business intelligence tools in Microsoft SQL Server 2005.
