WE HELP YOU TO MODERNIZE YOUR IBM i IN LINE WITH YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS INDEPENDENTLY OF ANY TOOL OR SOFTWARE

Our IBM i modernization services

We cover the entire modernization lifecycle.

Strategy: stay or move?

We help you to make a business-aligned decision.

We do not think that everything is black or white.

How do we make a difference?

We focus on the business strategy and business needs and while taking into account realities: costs, investments, risks. You can make a business-based decision with us. We are not bound to any technology. We know IBM i well, but we have no interests in selling you this or that software package or hardware device.

If some of your software should stay while some other parts should be moved off of IBM i – we will let you know.

Tactics: As-is analysis

We cover the current & future way of working (process flows). We include the list of screens, queries, reports, use cases and interfaces to 3rd party systems, user roles and rights descriptions and migration and integration strategies.

The resulting Business Design document is not a scientific, lengthy document but much rather a practical blueprint, plan of what will be delivered.

How do we make a difference?

We focus on the business: how the business will actually work with the system in the future.

How do we make a difference?

We focus on the business: how the business will actually work with the systems in the future. What needs to go where. And: we focus on business priorities.

Tactics: Technical Design

The Technical Design covers software services, screens’ design, data models, queries, reports and interfaces to 3rd party systems.

Again, the Technical Design Document is not scientific document but a practical, very precise plan of the software to be created.

How do we make a difference?

We focus not only on the technology but the user: how the user will actually use the system in a way that it is always clear and really usable. We identify which use cases need to go to what platform, too.

Execution: Tool(s) selection

We help you to find the tools that are the most appropriate. And more.

How do we make a difference?

We meticulously check which tool is appropriate for you, based on your needs and the current situation, your budget and time constraints. We let you know if free is good or not. Sometimes it is, sometimes it is not.

Execution: Project Management

We plan and track progress according to the pre-agreed methodology: be it Agile, SCRUM or Waterfall or any other technology you use.

How do we make a difference?

We are highly focused on delivering the project on time, within the given budget and with the expected scope. And: we document everything to support to project – no, we do not collect documentation to “prove our right” as the only thing that matters is the end result.

Execution: Development

If you need us: we help you to put into place what needs to be done.

How do we make a difference?

We are flexible during the Development phase: if something does not fit the real business needs but it is in the Design Documents, we follow the real business needs, not the documentation. We may have a debate, but it is always a healthy one. We represent your interests, not ours. In the longer run it is mutually beneficial as this is the only way to get to users’ love.

Execution: Implementation

We create the roll out plans and inform stakeholders. We ensure that the new versions go live. We also provide training. And: again, we elicit feedback.

How do we make a difference?

We ensure users are able to use the new tools with ease.

Execution: after Go Live support

We stay with you after go live.

How do we make a difference?

Not only to collect errors, but to, still, follow up on changes and new ideas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do we take on work?

Anywhere around the globe.

How do you do work in (a) … (location)?

We do the initial discussions over video conference(s) as well as the quoting and contracting part. Then we provide local presence for the analysis and design part, if needed, depending on the assignment, for a few weeks (months). After the initial design we send work to our Development Center in Hungary (Central and Eastern Europe). For the testing and handover-takeover we ensure local presence.

What parts of the work do we cover?

It depends on the agreement: it can be full project work (from business initiation till delivery and support) or just some parts of the strategy setting, selection or development process.

How do we charge?

Usually we quote you on a fixed price basis.

What happens if there are additional requirements, ideas?

It depends on the extent of these changes. We usually accommodate smaller changes. We will let you know when we think the things you ask for are already beyond our budget. It this latter happens – we do it in advance.

Do you need IBM i direction? Or do you need a top-notch software developer firm for your legacy system? Contact us.
