  • Let me talk a bit about the company Mark and I are working for. CM First has been in business since the 1990’s. Recently there has been an expansion into Italy and the USA, and Mark and I both work for the USA office. Our focus is squarely on IBM i and CA 2E/Plex modernization. We help companies evolve into more modern paradigms. We have a number of strategies based on the situation. That might mean putting as SOA framework in place for web services. Or it might mean migrating RPG/COBOL based logic to Java or C#. But some of the real low hanging fruit in this area is what we are talking about today. WebOption is really an exceptionally fast and quality way to bring your 2E application to the web. You pay a fixed cost for the tool, get some training/mentoring, invest in some CSS and JavaScript customization - and then you are on your way using the skills that you already have. It can be an important first and very visible step to modernization, one that is immediately valuable to your users.
  • In case you don’t know me, I am a CA and IBM i hand from way back. Mark has also been in the industry for a number of years. Mark has also work with the web enablement of CA 2E using multiple technologies, and can give some insights into why WebOption can work so well in a Synon shop.
