What to Expect When Transforming Your IBM i RPG or CA 2E (Synon) Applications into Modern Languages 

View the Recording

Most organizations are seeking better, faster ways to deliver powerful new digital experiences for their customers and employees. When you rely on legacy IBM i applications, this often requires piecing together capabilities from a mix of traditional and modern application architectures and technologies. Transforming your RPG and CA 2E (Synon) applications to modern languages is one way to enhance these core applications while embracing open source, cloud, web and AI technologies.

View this webinar with Fresche’s Nick Hampson and Chris Koppe to learn how you can modernize applications at lower cost and risk than rewriting or replacing while building on the investment in your customized systems. They will cover the various stages of a transformation project:
  • Building Your Strategy: Sample roadmaps, defining what needs to be transformed, and choosing the best architecture and technology stack.

  • Transformation: Fresche’s automated process, flexible delivery models, integration and potential workflow improvements.

  • Testing: Defining your strategy, types of testing required and automation capabilities.

  • Implementation / Deployment: Aligning the strategy with the organization, ease of adoption and defining the best options for you.

  • Beyond: What happens next and how to enhance your applications going forward.
