[Webinar] Convert from CA 2E Synon to RPG Free Form, with near 100% accuracy

Applications developed in CA 2E Synon are high value assets running critical business today.  A custom model and rules hold a competitive advantage over and above any standard software package.

Yet many CA 2E Synon applications are inflexible, decades old and Synon skills are in diminishing supply.  Modernizing a Synon application means breaking out of the CASE tool and converting to a modern language.  Where conversions to Java and .NET in the past have failed, a conversion to native Free Form RPG preserves the IBM i architecture and leverages the benefits of the platform.

Learn from a customer case study, how to:

  • Convert near 100% of your CA 2E Synon application to modern Free Form RPG, automatically
  • Generate instantly readable code, accessible to a new generation of developers
  • Reduce the volume of code by a factor of 7 (on average)
  • Generate ILE procedures from macro-instructions for easy maintenance

Free yourself from your 4GL constraints – and benefit from the latest technology on IBM i !
