AS/400 and RPG boast a distinguished history

RPG is a high-level, full-process programming language that enables businesses to build essential applications on IBM’s leading minicomputer system, the AS400 or i Series. RPG has evolved greatly over the years and is still widely accepted.

Nowadays, many ERPs, core banking and other essential business apps have an RPG foundation - and IBM i remains the preferred platform for business apps where security and voluminous data are key priorities.

RPG Development:
How E-ngineers can help

  • Build tailored RPG-based solutions using any version of the language, including RPG 3.x, RPG IV (RPG ILE), RPG-FREE and SQL.
  • Move from older versions of OS/400 to newer ones - or migrate off platform completely.
  • Analyse, redesign, enhance and maintain your current IBM i-based system.
  • Troubleshoot any problems that arise with IBM i systems, such as debugging RPG software.
  • Develop new modules and features tailored for you and your Misys Equation / Finastra Fusion core banking infrastructure. Version upgrade, support, ETL, migration subsystems design, optimise your legacy code.

Migration to cloud vs running legacy systems on private mainframes

The RPG programming language boasts more flexibility than people might think, and IBM i as a platform is capable of running high-load, rapid-response systems. However, E-ngineers knows that this is not sufficient for some clients - and we have the tools and expertise needed to help you migrate off-platform.

Many organisations want to migrate off-platform so they can gain more flexible and easier to manage tools that will allow them to escape the “COBOL trap”, a phenomenon that occurs when neglected legacy systems quickly degrade, becoming hard to manage and upgrade. Here, it’s less connected to the desire to employ more modern solutions for efficiency, it’s more a basic question of business security.

That said, we feel that organisations seeking to retain use of their own off-cloud hardware while escaping the "COBOL trap" should have that option – they just need a way to keep their business-critical systems, including legacy systems, up-to-date.

E-ngineers has the knowledge and tools to manage and upgrade your current legacy RPG / IBM i infrastructure.

Benefits of Dedicated Team

Your AS/400 software apps have been the beating heart of your organisation for years. You have a small group of employees to maintain these apps, but what do you do when one of them leaves? Maybe they retire. Maybe they get a new job. Either way, your other employees are left high and dry.

Having invested in the right RPG applications on the AS/400 foundation, you deserve access to the right resources for maintaining the system. But finding a qualified, experienced RPG developer at short notice can be well-nigh impossible.
