Agile Modernization with Node.js
Retain your IBM i (AS/400) investment and modernize without risks.
What is Agile Modernization?
Businesses have long been searching for the best way to bring their legacy IBM i (AS/400) applications into the modern age.
They’re tired of using green screens and want to take advantage of today’s latest technologies and platforms.
Many take on high-risk, high-cost system rewrites and migrations off IBM i in hopes of doing so. But more often than not, these projects fail—costing millions of dollars and wasting years of development effort.
Thankfully, there is now an incremental, iterative, agile approach to IBM i modernization.
Agile Modernization combines conversion to Node.js and a rich UI front end for true, enterprise-level IBM i modernization.
4 Steps to a Modern Enterprise
Use Profound.js to convert RPG applications to Node.js on IBM i as needed without losing compatibility.
Call your IBM i apps as Web services for easy integration with Java, .NET, and PHP programs.
Take advantage of the resources available on the Open-source Ecosystem from your IBM i.
Design beautiful graphical interfaces with Profound UI to eliminate any perceptions of “outdated” technology.
