National Airways Corporation Embarks on IBM i Modernization Project with Profound UI

April 18, 2012, Johannesburg, South Africa - Today, Profound Logic Software, a leader in IBM i modernization software, released a new case study detailing their work with National Airways Corporation.

National Airways Corporation, based at Lanseria International Airport, Johannesburg, South Africa, is an international aviation maintenance organization and aircraft reseller, maintaining in excess of 120 fixed wing aircraft and helicopters.

The demand for technological improvements remains a challenge in the aviation industry. Due to an increasing user base as well as a surge in deploying new business applications, NAC has recently upgraded its core application server to an IBM i Power7 processor. At the same time, the objective was to steer away from traditional "green-screen" application displays and provide end-users with a modern look for their new applications.

After extensive market research, the Profound UI applications suite was selected by NAC as the ideal development toolkit for RPG application modernization and web enablement.

Together with the reliability and manageability of IBM i servers, Profound Logic has enabled NAC to jump into a new league of application deployment. "Profound Logic has bestowed a new future onto the IBM i," says Rob Vogel, Senior Manager Information Services at NAC. "Our investment in Profound UI has resulted in a remarkable turn-around in user and management perception of the traditional legacy system approach."

Nigel Lothian, Director of Logicmate who represents Profound Logic in the region said, "We are very pleased to welcome NAC to the growing Profound UI customer base. Rob and his team knew exactly what they were looking for and Profound UI was the obvious choice to satisfy their requirements. We are very impressed just how much progress Rob and his team have made in the short time they have had the Profound UI product."
