Build a Dazzling Web App on IBM i in Under 10 Minutes - No Coding Required!

The Valence Framework for IBM i, available for free download, includes a browser-based low-code development utility called Nitro App Builder (NAB), through which anyone with a solid understanding of their IBM i database can create slick-looking apps, including dashboards and web-based data grids with download-to-Excel functionality, all in a matter of minutes! Running entirely on IBM i, the NAB tool can also be used to create intricate file maintenance apps through which users can adjust content in one or more physical files - you control which fields they can see or edit.

All of this can be achieved with no coding, though IBM i developers can easily extend the app's functionality with RPG or SQL code to handle business logic as needed. Advanced programmers comfortable with HTML5 and JavaScript code can take things even further, creating super elaborate data-entry apps that work hand-in-hand with server-side RPG logic through the Valence Portal.

The bottom line: With Valence, developers and "super users" alike can crank out highly functional web and mobile apps on IBM i in no time - no prior experience in web or mobile development required. Come to this quick demo session to see how easy it can be to build and deploy such an app on your system today!

Profound Logic: Agile Modernization for IBM i

What if you could modernize your company's IBM i applications at your own pace - without the risk, disruption, and cost of system re-writes!

It's possible With "Agile Modernization", an approach that combines a variety of modernization techniques all of which fit perfectly together:

  • RPG Open Access and RPG Free-format
  • Node.js and Open Source
  • HTML5 Rich Displays
  • On-the-fly Refacing

Come see why an Agile approach is ideal for both Modernization and New Development. You will discover:

  • Why there's no "one-size-fits-all" approach to modernization
  • Why "big bang" IBM i re-writes and migrations fail
  • How an iterative, Agile approach custom-fits to your business's modernization needs
  • How integrated Profound Logic tools: Genie, Profound UI, Profound Mobile, and Profound.js support your unique Agile modernization roadmap

  • Extend the reach of applications and data inside and outside of your organization
  • Create a better user experience with mobile apps, etc.
  • Secure data using industry standards and policies
We'll show you tools to help you quickly turn your RPG skills and applications into modern digital assets:
  • Automate generation of standard API and consumer RPGLE and SQL code
  • Use our wizard to build and edit OAS3/SWAGGER API specifications
  • Export API documentation to a self-service developer portal and Atlassian Confluence
