ISV Demo Sessions

Create IBM i Web and Mobile Dashboard Apps with No Programming (unless you want to)

The Valence Framework for IBM i, available for free download, includes a browser-based low-code development utility through which anyone with a solid understanding of their IBM i database can create slick-looking apps, such as dashboards or web-based queries, all in a matter of minutes! Complete with download-to-Excel functionality, the Valence App Builder tool can also help you create file maintenance apps in which users can adjust content in physical files - you control which fields they can see or edit.

All of this can be done with no coding required, though advanced developers can extend the app's functionality with RPG or SQL code to handle business logic as needed. IBM i programmers who really want to get their hands dirty can put other Valence development tools to work to create highly intricate data entry apps, all working hand-in-hand with your server-side RPG code.

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, and with no prior experience in web or mobile development. Come to this demo session to see how easy it can be to build such an app on your system today!

Continuous Integration: Building a strategy for IBM i using Git, Jenkins and JIRA

How can traditional IBM i development languages, like RPG, CL, DDS or even COBOL, be integrated into the process used by other development teams using modern open source tools like Jenkins, Git and JIRA? Learn how to bring these typically disparate teams into sync, using the same tools and delivering changes together.

We'll take you through each phase of the DevOps cycle and see how to accomplish this integration and what the challenges are, using open source tools across both IBM i and distributed systems. In particular, we'll demonstrate how you can automate the most complex tasks like the dependency recompile (build) of specific IBM i technologies, such as ILE and DB2 SQL.

Speaker: Arcad

Profound UI and Profound.js: Agile modernization with ease!

In this session, we discuss what sets Profound Logic's suite of integrated, innovative products apart. Learn how Profound UI modernizes green screen applications, how it can run with existing RPG code and work seamlessly on the IBM i. Be introduced to Profound.js and the exciting possibilities of development on IBM i with new talent and technologies.

Serious Business Apps for Real Business

Real business brings serious complexity to application development. And often, impossible deadlines too. You need to deploy beautiful mobile and web apps to enable your employees, customers and partners to see and interact with data that's not pretty. As a real business you have data here and there - in legacy databases, new databases, spreadsheets, flat files, hierarchical, relational, and perhaps even non-relational. The apps need to integrate and play well with all of your data and systems.

And you need to enforce business rules that are complicated. But how can you avoid re-coding the business rules into all those pretty new apps? And worse, how will you keep these new apps in sync with changing business rules?

Learn how you can leverage your IBM i investment and skills to create beautiful new web, mobile and desktop apps that meet the rigors of real business. Yeah, there may be some coding involved. But that's never scared you before.

APIs and the modern user experience

The business cares about productivity and profits, not hardware and software. IBM i has powered your organization for years, and there's no reason it can't deliver the goods for the intuitive web and mobile user experiences you need to deliver today. The key is delivering the business functions as RESTful APIs that any application can use, providing the fastest results and greatest productivity gains for your key stakeholders.

This session will cover:

  • Methods for creating APIs
  • Using APIs to support mobile and web user interfaces
  • Orchestrating services from multiple sources to meet complex needs
  • Managing APIs for optimal use and potential profit
