Executives to explore options for evolving System i applications in seminars scheduled for Dallas, Chicago and Atlanta.
AppEvo, the APPlication EVOlution road show for executives weighing strategic options to extend or migrate IBM System i legacy applications, has been scheduled in three cities for June 2010.
The half-day executive seminars are co-sponsored by ASNA, a leader in developing software products that evolve IBM midrange systems; Transoft, a leading expert in providing innovative modernization software and services; and Microsoft.
A primary goal of IT is to provide business insight. The green-screen "vertical silo" applications we have built in the past provided this insight in the context of a single business--but today's world does not run in the vacuum of a single business, according to ASNA.
Today's applications need to be broad, reactive, and flexible, the company says. Today's applications need not only solve the business challenges you know about now, but also those upcoming challenges that lurk as surprises.
At AppEvo, attendees will discuss, in plain English, how you can meet System i application challenges with little risk and lots of reward.
You'll hear Roger Pence, ASNA's education director and long-time System i/.NET developer, Transoft's modernization expert, Bruce Kopkin, and a Microsoft application migration/modernization specialist discuss topics such as:
• How to determine when it is best to extend and modernize rather than replace
• Ways to integrate your System i data with the outside world of suppliers, partners, customers, and other branches
• The need to capitalize on your organization's "tribal knowledge" as you extend and enhance your application portfolio
• Concrete steps you can take today to start crafting your organization's System i application modernization strategy
Following the presentations, AppEvo attendees can participate in an open discussion to share knowledge, identify common problems and discuss application extension and migration strategies. The speakers will be on hand to answer questions and offer broad insight into issues.
AppEvo will be presented from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 (including lunch from 12-1) in Dallas, TX, June 15; Chicago, IL, June 16; and Atlanta, GA, June 17.
This is a free event and seats are limited.
