LANSA technology insurance – the ISV silver bullet

With LANSA, Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and system integrators can transform an IBM i, RPG or COBOL package into a portable highly graphical Windows client/server application. Your LANSA applications will be portable to other server platforms including Windows, Linux and the Web. As a LANSA Partner, you can create new profitable markets for your services and solutions with built-in multilingual support and access to LANSA's worldwide distribution network.

Meeting today's challenges

LANSA understands the challenges facing Independent Software Vendors today who are constrained by limited staff and budgets:

  • How can you develop new applications while supporting existing installations?
  • How can you continue to keep up with technology demands of customers and prospects?
  • How can you integrate new technologies with your existing infrastructure?
  • If developers are your company's most important company asset - how do you leverage their knowledge in new environments?
  • There is a great deal of uncertainty in the software market today - how can you avoid being locked into incompatible options?
  • Is it possible to develop competitive software for today's requirements while positioning it to take advantage of future technologies?
  • Is it possible to modernize and extend your existing applications and development effort without a complete rewrite?

Simply more productive

LANSA is a development tool tightly focused on just one thing ­ rapidly creating high quality commercial applications. LANSA provides key benefits in five critical areas to improve an ISV’s ability to deliver applications:

  • Focus developers on delivering business solutions
  • Reduce application development and maintenance costs
  • Develop portable applications using a single skill set and code base
  • Enhance developers’ skills with a minimum of retraining
  • Shorten time to market

LANSA provides rapid application development that powers today’s complex business applications without exposing the underlying complexities to the developer.
