Currency Converter & Toolset
The EURO-PROST Currency Converter and Toolset
provides a viable concept, a market-proven set of solution components, and a full range of bank-certified EURO currency conversion routines to allow for a timely, controlled, and step-wise adaptation of existing and/or new software application environments to EURO conversion functionality, needs, and requirements.
The goal of PROST Solution Concept:
Stepwise conversion to Euro to avoid a Big Bang
Splitting the conversion volume into controllable and clear packages for
Analysis of applications and
currency amount converting
in the databases and data files
Interfaces between programs
(also on different systems)
Production release of the new
(Compile and Link)
Reducing the conversion project risk
Standardising the Euro conversion via all programs and databases to
various system platforms and for different programming languages (company-wide
identical procedures and conversion results)
Central control data for the inter-application and -system control of all
Euro-dependant functions, in-house currencies and interfaces with automatic
activation on programmable deadlines
(no actions on Euro deadline)
Testing all Euro-dependant timely procedures and phase transitions in
advance in quick motion
Even employment of the limited development capacities via a longer period
of time (continuous level of capacity utilisation, no peak load on Euro
Relieving application developers from system-engineering Euro control and
conversion problems (saving in terms of investment and time)
a professionally, controlled methodology and step-wise, gradual transition and implementation strategy for migrating your EURO-critical application environments
while simultaneously avoiding a rushed, mission-critical Big Bang effect in terms of data processing technology through its step-wise conversion process model.
Key to EURO-PROST's
Application Interface Management System is its capability to support coordinated cooperation among EURO-enabled and legacy application components throughout the various EURO transition phases.
(e.g. functionality depending on different EURO-phases, transition of inhouse-currency from national currency to Euro).
