  • Drag-and-drop, WYSIWYG UI enables even those with little knowledge of Web design to create dynamic, visually stunning Web applications that leverage the RPG code they’ve already created.
  • More than 125 widgets add rich UI capabilities and customization to your applications
  • Bind UI elements to your RPG field properties
  • Bind data from your databases to elements within your application, such as drop-downs for customer or product information.
  • Intuitive, non-intrusive method for modernizing all of your RPG, CL, Cobol, menu, and system screens without investing a lot of time, effort, and money into the process. 
  • Atrium provides a menu and deployment framework for securely accessing all your Profound UI interfaces and other IBM i web applications from one central location.
  • RPG Open Access is a feature in IBM i that opens up RPG code to Web browsers and mobile devices. Profound UI’s handler makes it possible to modernize natively, without significant changes to RPG source code, moving away from the IBM i platform, or costly third party services.
  • Rich display files take you out of the out dated “Web 1.0” way of doing things and isolate you from complexity. In older Web 1.0 type development, you had to do a lot of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to get your displays working the way you wanted them. If you wanted to take advantage of Ajax-type functionality to improve the user experience or performance, you had to become expert in a lot of complicated technologies and coding techniques.Today, the trend is toward using pre-built libraries of UI components or “widgets” that allow you to define these types of interfaces with no manual coding. This is exactly the way things are done in Profound UI. You will create your rich display files using pre-built UI components which are easily controlled through RPG programs.
  • It’s important to note here that the widgets are easily controlled through RPG by feeding values into their properties.Value of native modernization?Software never asks users to install anything … updates are transparentPrivileges are controlled by the serverCan provide applications to partners, vendors, customers
