Business users want new applications now. Market and regulatory pressures require faster application updates and delivery into production. Your IBM i developers may be approaching retirement, and you see no sure way to fill their positions with experienced developers. In addition, you may be caught between maintaining your existing applications and the uncertainty of moving to something new.
In this white paper, you’ll learn how to think of these issues as opportunities rather than problems. We’ll explore motivations to migrate or modernize, their risks and considerations you should be aware of before embarking on a (migration or modernization) project.
Lastly, we’ll discuss how modernizing IBM i applications with optimized business workflows, integration with other technologies and new mobile and web user interfaces will enable IT – and the business – to experience time added value and much more.Get the White Paper

Faster delivery of applications is a must for businesses to be innovative, and the only way to achieve this is to change the way they are built. It’s this need that has given rise to the emergence of low-code software development platforms.
The term ‘low-code’ was coined by Forrester Research in 2014 to describe software being built in half the time it takes to code using traditional methods. Since then, low-code development platforms have further fragmented into simple departmental solutions, heavy-duty IT-driven enterprise development and everything in between.
This white paper seeks to explore the spectrum of application development methods, their different uses, and their pros and cons. It covers no-code, low-code, and full-code (traditional development methods) and explains their suitability for different projects, who should use them and how they can be most effective.Get the White Paper
