V3 Docs: System Administration User’s Guide: 1994

The following is an extract of of the GenevaERS Version 3 System Administration User’s Guide.

Version of 3 of GenevaERS was followed on Version 1, built for the State of Alaska, and Version 2, constructed for various state governments. It was the first commercialized package. It and all the prior versions included CICS interfaces.

In the 2020 version of GenevaERS, many of the administration functions still remained, including creating Logical Records, Field Definitions, Physical Files, and Joins. But there are a number of unique capabilities of Version 3 that were never carried forward, including the ability to define dynamic screens, place records and fields on those screens, define edit processes for values, and create, update, retrieve, or delete (crud) functions against those values.

Thus the below includes a selection of each of the System Administration Guide, giving a sample of these capabilities.

More information about this time is available in Balancing Act: A Practical Approach to Business Event Based Insights, specifically Chapter 12. Types of Computers and Processes and all of Part 5. The Programmer.
