A Rapid IBM i (AS/400) RPG to Java or PHP Modernization Solution


The Need for Digital Innovation

For years IBM i (AS/400) applications have been handling millions of transactions per day. But they’re not as agile as modern systems, and they don’t always integrate easily with newer technologies. In addition, finding resources to maintain and enhance RPG and CL code is a real challenge. Companies now face real pressure to modernize business applications to take advantage of Web, Mobile, SOA and Open Source technologies. X-Modernize automatically transforms RPG applications into modern, native Java or PHP applications.

What is X-Modernize?

X-Modernize is a highly-automated solution that converts RPG and CA 2E (SYNON) applications to modern languages such as Java and PHP. From a business perspective, the advantages of modernizing are many: applications that are ready to be viewed from any device that supports a browser; new sales channels; a wide developer pool for modern technologies; easier onboarding of new staff who are accustomed to a GUI interface; better agility and integration with other, more modern systems in your organization.

What You Can Do with X-Modernize

Reduce Modernization Costs

X-Modernize enables you to convert your entire RPG and CL application environment to Java or PHP quickly and efficiently and for much lower cost than re-writing, re-architecting or replacing with a package.

Simplify & Standardize Technology

Application conversion and a standardized set of technologies addresses complexity, maintainability and the number of integration points. This reduces the skill sets required to maintain and manage application ecosystems.

Improve Agility

Converting your RPG applications to java or php opens up a world of possibilities: ability to meet rapidly changing business demands, in addition to easier integration with other systems. With greater agility comes more opportunity and improved operations.

Access a New IT Resource Pool

Retiring resources is one of the biggest headaches facing IT directors in IBM i (AS/400) shops today. Valuable resources take decades of application and database knowledge with them, and aren't easily replaced. Converting to modern languages opens your organization up to a world of new resources.

Open New Horizons

Older application environments contain decades of valuable information, business logic and customer data. But these precious resources are typically difficult to access when they are locked away in older technology, and are available only to personnel who are technically proficient.

Reduce Operational Costs

Cost savings are everywhere in a modernized system: reduced development and testing time, cheaper infrastructure and widely available resources. In addition, software licensing fees are often less expensive, reducing maintenance costs.
