May 5, 2017 - Orlando, FL - (www.profoundlogic.com), Today, Profound Logic Software, the leader in IBM i application modernization, announced the release of Profound.js 2.0 at the 2017 COMMON Annual Conference and Expo.
Profound.js harnesses the power of Agile Modernization and Node.js for IBM i application modernization. Version 2.0 brings new capabilities to the product, including a Commercial Connector module and Enhanced JumpStart module.
The Benefits of Being Agile for IBM i Application Modernization
IBM i (previously known as AS/400 or iSeries) is a modern business platform that is very stable, secure and reliable and is highly capable of very modern options like mobile, analytics and more. However, many companies are not aware that they can extend the value of their business applications with modern interfaces and modern languages on IBM i.
Some businesses take on high-risk, high-cost, failed attempts to re-write their applications or leave the IBM i platform altogether. But more often than not, these projects fail-costing millions of dollars and wasting years of development effort.
To address this, Profound Logic has produced a way to modernize IBM i applications: Agile Modernization.
"Agile Modernization is a completely unique methodology for IBM i application modernization," explains Profound Logic CEO, Alex Roytman. "Rather than taking a costly, risky, 'Big Bang' approach to modernization, we give companies a safe and cost-effective approach that delivers results in a fraction of the time."
With Agile Modernization, businesses can:
Agile Modernization empowers businesses to modernize in a step-by-step, iterative manner, as opposed to rewriting or migrating entire systems at once, which is expensive, risky, and disruptive.
Agile Modernization leverages Profound UI for green screen-to-Rich UI modernization. Both modern RPG and Node.js are available for source code modernization, which addresses one of the top concerns of today's IBM i businesses: finding new developers for the platform. Profound.js is the solution businesses can use for Agile Modernization with Node.js
Profound.js 2.0 with Commercial Connector and Enhanced JumpStart Module Now Available
At COMMON 2016, Profound announced our initial plans to support Node.js for IBM i modernization with a new product, Profound.js. At this year's conference, we're expanding the capabilities of our Node.js products with the release of Profound.js 2.0.
"The benefits of using Node.js on IBM i are numerous," says Roytman. "With Profound.js, companies will be able to integrate new or converted Node.js applications with their existing RPG applications, as well as open up a whole new world of open-source possibilities on IBM i, including Watson and Internet of Things. They will be able to retain their existing IBM i investment while enjoying the latest in cutting edge business capabilities. It really is the best of both worlds."
When Profound.js was first announced in 2016, it was offered as part of a services engagement for RPG-to-Node.js Conversion. With the release of Profound.js 2.0, businesses have access to a standalone, downloadable product that includes the following new modules:
