IBM i is at the core of thousands of businesses in every field and industry. It is an IT bedrock that serves as a great starting point to move into the future.
Organisations that have built RPG, COBOL and Synon applications on IBM i have had great success; however, the monolithic nature of these applications is now holding them back. Our series of IT modernisation sessions will help you unlock unique value within these applications and drive them forward into modern, agile, multi-tiered systems.
The goal of these sessions is to help bring your business and IT together to establish your unique roadmap that will provide a modernisation plan to meet your company's growing needs – today and for the future.
IBM i applications have been successfully serving business operations for decades. Modern technologies are enabling new levels of automation, scalability, resiliency and flexibility. In this session, Chris Koppe discuss what application modernisation and transformation is and the various options available to help them realise the full potential of the future while building on the value of their IBM i applications.
In this session, Chris will discuss:
Knowing what you have is just as important as knowing where you’re going when it comes to evolving your IBM i applications and innovating for the future. This session will help you prep for your modernisation journey by showing you how automated application analysis helps you quickly determine what needs to be modernised – and what doesn’t – so you can make an informed decision about where to start. You’ll also learn about high-value, low-risk initiatives that will provide quick wins early in your modernisation journey, as well as different deployment models that are available from IBM.
Chris Koppe and Ray Everhart will cover:
In some cases, it might make sense for you to transform your RPG and CA 2E (Synon) code and database. Code transformation enables you to take advantage of modern technology, integration opportunities and more readily available skill sets while preserving the functionality, business processes and structure of your applications. Database modernisation, on the other hand, improves security, reliability and performance.
When you’re ready to deploy your transformed applications, should you go hybrid? Multi-cloud? What is the best option for you and what does it all mean from a practical perspective?
Join Chris Koppe and Robert Arce for this session where they will break down some of the many options available:
