Modern IBM i: It’s more than DevOps – It’s modernizing RPG, Database, Fields and SYNON

IBM i modernization can be a daunting and complicated task.  It involves many aspects from modern processes with DevOps to modernizing the backend – RPG fixed- to free-format, moving from DDS to DDL, field expansion, and if you’re SYNON, modernizing code that was created in the 70s with a code generator.  They are all important topics for protecting your IBM i investment and extending it into the future.

Join us to learn:

  • Why Modernize?
  • Where to start and determine the key areas of focus.
  • How ARCAD can help in the journey.

ARCAD Software has the tools and services to get you started wherever you are starting from!
