Do your green screen applications look old even though they’re in top form?
Tailor-made legacy applications on POWER systems (System i, System x, System p) are the pillar of your company’s core processes.
It took many years to develop them. Yet even though experienced users are often still satisfied, a generational change has to be considered sooner or later.
In order to ensure your company’s continuity, you need tried and true, secure solutions for the modernization of your core systems: Renew your userinterface
1. Web 2.0 integration and extension
Today’s business processes need a continuous workflow for everyone involved, whether they're customers, business partners or suppliers. Efficient, inexpensive implementation of character-oriented interfaces in a real Web 2.0 interface is a must. This is the basis for the sustainable extension and target-oriented appreciation of the entire system. Your business partners can then simply check delivery dates themselves, process orders and manage customer data online. Manual data entry and delays can be reduced – and thus maximize your profits.
2. Unicode enabling
When your company is successfully expanding, you not only run up against country borders, but also the problematic of the respective character set. Unicode offers a remedy to this. But when it comes to large inventory systems, you need an experienced partner at your side with good tools to migrate the database, programs and frontend so that the expansion of your business activity is not held up by any IT issues.
3. Integrating mobile devices via WebServices
Getting prompt information from important inventory systems is more important than ever for managers and employees at the “front" – only then can the right decisions be made for your company based on valid, real data. Text-oriented interfaces can be made accessible through the standardized WebService technology without any need to completely redevelop them for mobile devices.
Our solution: Web, Windows or RUI enabling for 5250, 3270 and MAPs
We’ll create a modern user interface with our tools (Rational Developer for Power). We’ll also modularize the application in the process in order to increase the agility of future maintenance and development. This helps implement the SOA model. We can also rebuild the application by migrating to JSP/JSF or RUI for example. And there’s one area we’re unbeatable in: we make sure your daily business continues to run without a hitch during the modernization process. We’ve created tools and processes so highly automated that the time involved is kept to a minimum. And our staff – experts in every kind of terrain – will lead you quickly and securely into the new world.
