Automated, Flexible Code Transformation of Legacy IBM i Source Code
Flexible Code Transformation is a service that gives businesses an automated approach to converting legacy RPG source code to Node.js or truly modern RPG. With this service, you can start your Node journey right away and avoid the long, expensive, and risky cycles that Java or .NET refactoring will cause to your business.
Profound Logic is the only partner that provides a unified development environment for all its solutions. This not only addresses legacy code but future development as well.
Old, monolithic RPG code poses many risks to your business. Legacy Code:
Can be inefficient, unstable, inflexible, and vulnerable
Isn’t portable or cloud-ready
Doesn’t support a new generation of developers
Is slow to keep up with business demands
Legacy IBM i code weighs down business applications with technical debt and puts up roadblocks to innovation. It also significantly widens the gaps between the needs of the business, the expectations of end-users and customers, and the ability of IT to address those needs.
Converting IBM i RPG to Modern Node.js:
- Reduces risks and time to market compared to re-writing IBM i RPG into .NET and Java
- Opens the door to platform agnostic options, including AWS, Azure, and hybrid cloud
- Ensures that your applications continue to work throughout the project
- Optimizes application performance and maintenance by removing bad/dead code
- Breaks up monolithic code with modular, reusable code
Node.js is an enterprise-ready language used by Fortune 500 companies around the world, including:
Node.js is the perfect language for IBM i applications. It is:
- Native: Runs natively on the IBM i and is less complex than Java
- Everywhere: Hire younger developers to replace those who are retiring
- Optimized: Eliminate bad code
- Scalable: Implement microservices
- Flexible: Make applications platform agnostic
- Portable: Extend applications to the cloud and other non-IBM i platforms
- Agile: Support an iterative approach to business transformation
Are Java and .NET “modern”?
.NET and Java are often presented as options to transform RPG code. The challenge is that, like RPG, .NET and Java are not new technologies. They are actually close to 30 years old. While there are some reported automation offerings by other vendors that carry their own risk, attempts to transform RPG to Java or .NET manually are slow, risky, and expensive… and subject to significant human error.
A much better approach is to automate the code transformation using a truly modern language that will future-proof business efforts while preserving their IBM i investment. To give businesses the absolute best path to digital transformation, Profound Logic transforms legacy RPG to Node.js as a service.
