Visual LANSA's Integrated Development Environment (IDE) allows you to develop and maintain applications for Mobile, Web, Windows and IBM i (System i, iSeries and AS/400) using a single tool set and a single skill set. LANSA developed applications run free of the underlying operating system, database technology or display style. Key features include a repository for business rules and a highly productive 4GL. LANSA generates the most efficient code depending on the application and platform. It allows developers to stay focused on the business requirements rather than underlying technology. With technology changing at an incredible fast rate and developers spending a lot of time keeping up-to-date, it makes good business sense to invest in LANSA’s agile development technology that has a 25-tyear track record track of being future proof.
