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 development utility through which anyone with a solid understanding of their IBM i database can create dazzling dashboard and query apps - in minutes! Complete with download-to-Excel functionality, you can also use this utility to create file maintenance apps that enable users to adjust fields in one or more physical files (you control which fields they can touch).

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 and make additional database adjustments 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 session to see how easy it can be to build such apps 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 perfectly fit 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

Unlock Your Data - How to Effectively Create, Secure, and Maintain APIs on IBM i

The Role of APIs and Web Services in the Era of Digital Business Transformation

In an age where people expect self-service convenience through mobile apps, websites, and online portals, organizations are focused on expanding customer engagement by leveraging host based systems in the development of new user experiences. Once in place, multiple moving parts and SLAs to address, as well as concerns about access and security, make API administration complex.

In this session, Rocket Software will show you how you can go beyond simply re-skinning your existing applications, and instead create leading edge mobile or web user experiences. We will show you how Rocket API can be used for automatic generation of web services from your existing IBM i applications, without changing a single line of RPG code. Finally, we will demonstrate how you can orchestrate these connections into new workflows and business processes that match the way your users work in the new mobile or web environment.
