Profound Logic Welcomes Young IBM i Developer Liam Allan to the Team

August 8, 2016 - Dayton, OH - (, Profound Logic, a leader in IBM i application modernization solutions, is excited to announce the addition of Liam Allan to our team. Liam recently made waves by winning the COMMON Student Innovation Award and presenting sessions at the 2016 Annual Conference.

"Like so many others, I was very impressed by Liam when I met him at COMMON," explains Profound Logic CEO, Alex Roytman. "I was particularly interested in his passion for open-source development, and his natural talent for working with the IBM i platform."

Allan started working on the IBM i as a trainee RPG developer, writing software to customer specifications. But he was also investing his own time in the platform, learning how to bridge the gap between IBM i and the world of open-source. This turned out to be serendipitous, as Profound Logic was also expanding their focus of legacy modernization to include Node.js with a new solution, Profound.js. Profound.js was announced at the COMMON 2016 Conference, and is expected to be released in late 2016.

"Profound Logic is always looking for innovative solutions for legacy modernization, and open-source languages like Node.js are primed to be the next big thing in that area," says Roytman. "Liam is a great fit for our development team working on new solutions for Node.js and agile modernization, such as Profound.js."

Allan joins a development team that includes other top IBM i talent, including Scott Klement, Brian May, and Ted Holt.

"Joining the Profound Logic team was the right step to advance my career, while contributing to the R&D of an exciting new offering, like Profound.js," said Allan. "I look forward to working with the passionate developers at Profound Logic, contributing to discussions, and helping to shape the long-term goals of our development efforts."

Those interested in hearing Liam Allan's presentation skills are in luck. He is currently scheduled to speak at the upcoming Fall RPG & DB2 Summit in Chicago, on October 4-6, 2016.
