Editor's Note: The following article introduces the webcast, " NGS-IQ Business Intelligence for Manufacturers and Distributors" available for free download from the MC Webcast Center.

One of the things we've been hearing from people who have been looking at our software, as well as from our existing customers, is that you typically have a lot of terrific business application software running on your IBM i or AS/400 but it may not have the most modern user interface.


A lot of people are still running applications built as long as 20 years ago with the efficient 5250 green screen interface. Perhaps certain things have been modernized, but overall there may be a tendency to view what's on the AS/400 or IBM i as being legacy and old. It's different from the Windows and Web browser interface that people are accustomed to today. So what we are going to show are several examples of how you can leverage what you have and make it better and launch into a modernization initiative.
