Analysis and Productivity
Make code changes with confidence and move projects forward quickly by
understanding your entire application environment.
Having a complete understanding of your IBM i applications is proven to reduce maintenance costs and is critical, as
many RPG, COBOL and CA 2E (Synon) developers are retiring. By uncovering and properly estimating development
projects, IT can better respond to the needs of the business.
Easily enhance IBM i applications with:
Easily Onboard New Employees: Automated
documentation and application understanding
helps ramp up new developers quicker so they can
contribute faster and work autonomously.
Application Documentation: Automatically
document and describe systems in a straightforward
manner and in a format that can be easily shared.
Move Projects Forward Faster: Reduce risk and get
projects out the door faster with automated impact
analysis and shared, up-to-date documentation.
Make Code Changes with Confidence: Provide a
deep understanding of the impact of changes across
all your applications.
Impact and Data Quality Analysis: Perform
complete impact analysis in just a few seconds and
better manage your applications with detailed quality
and complexity metrics of all code and databases.
Business Rules Extraction: Automatically document
and understand the rules that run your business
to improve development processes, speed up
maintenance and reduce testing time.
