IBM i (previously known as AS/400 or iSeries) is a stable, secure, and reliable business platform that is highly capable of very modern options like mobile, analytics and more. Yet, many companies are not aware that they can extend the value of their business applications with modern interfaces and modern languages – including Open Source – on IBM i.
To address this, some businesses take on high-risk, high-cost, failed attempts to re-write their applications or leave the IBM i platform altogether. Often, these projects fail—costing millions of dollars and wasting years of development effort.
Now you can modernize your IBM i applications without attempting these risky, costly, lengthy approaches.
We’re happy to present Profound.js, the key piece that makes Agile Modernization possible. Profound.js is a suite of tools that allows you to modernize legacy RPG applications using open source Node.js.
