LANSA provides the only Integrated Development Environment (IDE) you will ever need for rapid application development of Mobile, Web, Windows, and IBM i (System i, iSeries and AS/400) applications.
With technology changing at an incredible rate and developers spending a lot of time keeping up-to-date, it makes good business sense to invest in the one agile development tool that is future-proof. LANSA's rapid application development tools are open and flexible, enabling you to write code that runs free of the underlying operating system, database technology or display style.
LANSA's tools for rapid application development
Visual LANSA is a complete Windows-based integrated development environment. Using one skill set, develop applications for Mobile, Web, Windows, IBM i and extend or modernize existing IBM i 5250 applications. Ongoing application maintenance is easier with centralized definitions of data and logic.Learn more
Visual LANSA Framework is an operational Web and Windows application that allows developers to assemble business software rapidly with minimal coding. The application and user interface design are prototyped at the same time and use the same design for both Windows desktop and Web applications. The prototype tools speed up the requirements and design stages of development.Learn more
Using the cloud version of Visual LANSA's development tools, developers can build mobile, Web, Windows and IBM i applications without having to install the tools on every developer workstation. Companies can manage the cost of developer tools by paying only for the cloud resources they use, with the flexibility to increase and decrease the number of developers as requirements change.Learn more
LANSA Open for .NET allows developers to write .NET applications that take advantage of resources on the IBM i without leaving Visual Studio. Use the class library APIs to use IBM i databases, message queues, spooled files, applications and jobs in .NET applications.Learn more
LANSA for i is a rapid IBM i-based development environment for building new applications and extending existing 5250 applications. Application development is much faster than RPG using LANSA's powerful 4GL and maintenance is easier with centralized definitions of data and logic.Learn more
Focus on your business needs, not technology
Visual LANSA enables developers to concentrate on business requirements rather than the underlying technology. Visual LANSA is appealing to both developers and their managers looking for a tool to deliver the greatest business impact in the shortest possible time.
One rapid application development tool to build, enhance and extend your systems
To appreciate the full power of Visual LANSA, imagine combining the qualities of a business-oriented programming language – like RPG or COBOL – with the rich graphical capabilities and productivity features of tools like Visual Studio and Eclipse. Visual LANSA uses a meta data repository and a productive high-level programming language to develop Web, Windows desktop, 5250 and server-based applications, using one easy-to-learn skill set from within the same visual IDE.
Visual LANSA is also used to enhance and extend IBM i (System i, iSeries and AS/400) systems. Many of our customers have shortened their project timescales, enjoyed more predictable results, and saved money by re-using what they have and only developing what they really need.
