White Paper

Evaluation of ARCAD MaaS Conversion Process from SYNON to Modern RPG

IBM Lab services were tasked to evaluate the maintainability of the RPG Free Form code generated by the ARCAD Modernization as a Service (MaaS) process. The MaaS process takes RPG or RPG ILE code generated using SYNON methods and converts the code to modularized, free-form, modern RPG. The result is code that can be more easily managed and maintained without the need for SYNON.

In this White paper, discover the results of the IBM Lab Services evaluation, and also customer feedback from GEODIS, who converted their mission-critical SYNON application into Free Form RPG using ARCAD MaaS.

  • Quality of the Free Form RPG code generated

  • Architecture of the transformed application

  • Interview with the GEODIS customer live in production
