Using ARCAD, IPECA transforms their IBM i source code & database and moves to DevOps, reducing project cost by 82%
IPECA is a French non-profit Pension organization created in 1947 to meet the needs of the aerospace sector for retirement and pension plans. Key IPECA customers include Airbus and Dassault Aviation.
The core Personal Insurance Information System at IPECA is an application running on IBM i (aka iSeries, AS/400) written in RPG, with two principal domains and technologies:
- Customer-facing (front-end)
- Management (back-end)
IPECA adopted ARCAD for DevOps to optimize their development, with Verifier for test automation. ARCAD-Observer helped them analyze the cross-references in their code. Using ARCAD Transformer they automated the modernization of their source code and the conversion of their database to SQL. They also used ARCAD Transformer Field to expand the size of a field, right across the application.
