Cognos PowerHouse 4GL is a specification-based development language that supports interactive screens and menus, flexible production reporting, volume batch processing capabilities, and simultaneous access to multiple relational and nonrelational data sources. This advanced server-based application development environment improves developer productivity by up to 90 percent when compared with traditional programming languages such as COBOL, BASIC, C, C++, and Java. Cognos PowerHouse 4GL achieves this productivity through its strong data dictionary, built-in business data processing models, default data handling routines, and relational transaction models.
