ML began in 1997 with its focus on the modernization of AS / 400 applications. In order to keep the well proven RPG, CL & COBOL backend application programs we have developed a frontend graphical interface based on Windows. With this method we developed a way that ensures a secure future for these legacy applications running on AS/400 and successor platforms.
By using the optimal combination of modernization, further development, reprogramming and integration of software we have successfully optimized our customers IT in more than 500 projects.
We regard the combination of the IBM and Microsoft world as the perfect symbiosis of two leading hardware and software vendors. For that reason we decided to use our products to bridge the gap between RPG and .NET development, which allows our customers to benefit from the advantage of both worlds.
With the new development iNOW UI, which was unveiled in autumn 2017, ML is making it easier than ever to modernize applications on IBM i and its predecessors. Creating appealing and easy-to-use UIs does not require any programming skills and is very intuitive and fast with various multi-select, copy & paste and drag & drop options. Not only can you replace green screens but also provide complementing functions using snippets and scripting.
If a more advanced modernization is needed right up to the option of a complete switch into the .NET world, the sister product iNEXT offers all necessary technological possibilities.
iNOW and iNEXT provide a successful future strategy for past, existing and future applications using IBM i.
Our customers profit from our over 25 years of experience. During that time we have continuously invested in the development and modernization of our tools and thus achieved an outstanding quality and recognition in the market. Our technological lead, creativity, efficiency and reliability are particularly important to us.
