How We Do It

The System i is one of the most broadly capable systems on the market today. But so few take advantage of its full potential, often using Windows or Linux systems to develop applications with a modern look and feel, when their existing midrange system could handle the job more securely and cost effectively.

The System I's state-of-the-art ILE environment allows you to leverage many classes and scripts available in the public domain like JAVA.System I innovators have experience utilizing these languages and more on your System i workhorse.

Your System I can run an apache web server to receive SOAP requests.

Data transfer from external databases into the DB2 database using java
Legacy Development

We approach legacy development with modern programming techniques and take advantage of modules, procedures, and service programs. System I innovators focus on choosing the right tool for the job and are not tied to a single development technique or language. We're happy to follow your team's development practices or allow us to suggest a new approach.
