Supporting IBM Midrange Systems for More Than 30 Years

Share |

Happy birthday to the IBM i! It has been a quality product for its entire life. For more than 30 years serving the IBM midrange community, ProData has shared the same business philosophy: Quality is number one. Quality product, quality service, quality support: It is the cornerstone upon which we were built and continues to serve as a solid foundation moving forward. At ProData, we understand the midrange community and have a long history of doing what is right for our customers. Over the years, our experienced, knowledgeable technical team has evaluated individual programming needs and provided the fundamental tools to support IT departments.

That is how DBU Database Utility was born! Our customers in the Omaha, Neb., area were some of the first to dive into the AS/400* world back in 1988. We worked with them in-house, and they screamed for something more functional than the data file utility offering at the time. We responded with our now famous DBU, which is distributed worldwide to more than 15,000 customers!

As DBU distribution grew, so did our DBU product and overall product line. Customers would write to us about additional features they would like to see in DBU or other utilities, and we responded. Over time, we have expanded DBU to include functionality that includes access to journals, data queues, user spaces, data areas and even remote data. DBU database applications can be created, and exit programs or SQL can be integrated. The customers spoke, and we listened!

Our product line has also evolved with the times. Our offerings now include:

  • DBU Audit simplifies tracking and reporting changes to data for auditing and regulatory needs.
  • SQL/Pro is a simple language that provides the power to query, print and manipulate data.
  • SQL AUDIT tracks all data modifications made by SQL/Pro and IBM SQL. Take control of SQL!
  • RDB Connect gives direct access to remote databases. Integrate and track your remote data.
  • RDR takes the effort and delay out of retrieving deleted records and saves countless man hours.

As a valued IBM Business Partner, we are steadfast in our support and are visible at most conferences within the IBM i ecosystem. Look us up at the next conference you attend, or check out our offerings at
