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 called Nitro Query. With this intuitive tool 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 even use Nitro Query to create file maintenance apps that enable users to adjust fields in one or more physical files.

All of this can be done with no coding required, though advanced developers can extend the app's functionality with RPG 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!

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.

The powerful branching features of Git make concurrent development on IBM i rapid and easy to manage. In our session, you'll view each part of the DevOps cycle and see how to benefit from open source tools across both IBM i and distributed systems. In particular, you'll automate the most complex tasks like the dependency recompile (build) of specific IBM i technologies, such as ILE and DB2 SQL.

You will also learn how GitHub can be used either on premise or in the cloud to boost productivity and quality of source code.

Speaker: Arcad

Speed up Mobile and Web Development with Opensource

Attend this session to learn how Websmart reduces web development learning curves. You will see real world examples of how IBM i shops benefit from responsive web applications using Websmart.

Learning Objectives :

  • Why opensource on IBM i
  • Past present & future of PHP
  • Rapid responsive, mobile web applications

Speaker: Fresche Solutions

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

Speaker: Profound


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 improving business insight and expanding customer engagement. To get there, they are orchestrating new workflows and business processes that match how customers and employees work within their new mobile or web environments.

In this session, Rocket Software will show you how you can achieve this insight and engagement by going beyond simply re-skinning your existing applications, and instead creating 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.
