Why +1Copybook exists today and is worth millions!

Two Oracle DBAs in my group were tasked to convert the COBOL copybooks into CREATE TABLE and CONTROL FILE scripts and then load the data. Simple enough.

But when the DBAs said "We're done", the programmers would test their programs against the loaded data. The programmers would come back and say "The data isn't right." The DBAs would work the issues again and hand over the data to the programmers, who would again reject the data. This back and forth continued, meeting after meeting. It was like watching a tennis or ping pong match.

Seeing this, I searched for a tool to automate the time consuming, error prone task of converting COBOL copybooks. Amazingly there weren't any. This is the reason why +1Copybook came into existence: to not only automate but to optimize this conversion.

As to why +1Copybook is worth millions? Well, the data never was loaded correctly and the multi-million dollar contract was cancelled for this issue and few other reasons too!
