How Can ILE RPG & Java Programming Help Your Business?

Does your business run an IBM System i, iSeries or AS400 environment? If so, have there ever been tasks you’d like to perform that your current business application lacks functionality for? For example are there any manual processes which you would like to automate. Developing bespoke applications can help – but where do you begin if you want to keep these applications on the System i server?

Life IT (www.lifeit.co.uk) are knowledgeable experts in all things System i – including support, admin and programming. Their IBM ILE RPG and Java programmers can code a tailored solution that’s ideal for your needs. Here’s how…

What is ILE RPG?

RPG is a high-level programming language used for coding business applications. Its history dates back many years – as far as 1959. The latest version, ILE RPG (or RPG IV) is a powerful language used predominantly to code applications for System i.

What could ILE RPG & Java programming do for me?

In a nutshell, using ILE RPG and Java you can code bespoke solutions for your System i environment.

Why do I need bespoke System i applications?

There are lots of potential reasons. Perhaps your business has changed and now works in a way that isn’t handled within the solution you have. Software tailored to your precise needs will help you work more efficiently, saving time and – ultimately – saving money.

What if I’m mostly happy with my current System i applications?

If you’re only “mostly” happy with them, an experienced System i programmer could extend and expand their functionality to the point where your applications are doing everything you need them to.

So if I don’t have the ILE RPG & Java skills , what can I do?

Speak to experts such as Life IT. Their skilled developers have over 20 years’ experience of coding for IBM environments, and they’ve carried out bespoke solution development for the System i server in a variety of programming languages – including ILE RPG & Java.

What can Life IT do for me?

Brief Life IT on what you need and their programmers will develop, test and install your bespoke System i solutions. They also offer a full range of support services for your System i environment – ensuring it’s working to its full potential.

How do I find out more?

Prevent Downtime with Expert IBM Domino Support

IBM Domino and IBM Lotus Notes have revolutionised the way many of us work. With its unparalleled collaborative and communication tools, it’s never been easier to work remotely with colleagues, clients and contractors across the globe.

That is, as long as it’s working…

Don’t get us wrong. IBM Domino is an incredibly reliable platform. But no system is completely infallible, and if you’re working on an important project or right on deadline, it’s imperative that your Domino environment stays up, running and connected.

A great way to ensure downtime is kept to a minimum is by taking advantage of the services of a well-established IBM Domino support expert, such as Life IT (www.lifeit.co.uk/infrastructure/domino/domino-support). They operate UK-wide, ensuring businesses keep working and communicating – and fixing any problems with minimum fuss and hassle.

Here’s what Life IT’s skilled Domino support team could do for you:

Domino system monitoring – catch issues before they become problems

Your servers are constantly monitored, and any issues that arise are flagged you by Life IT’s team of experts. They’ll advise the best course of action to resolve the issue before it causes real problems for you. System availability and performance are monitored, with automated reports produced and issues resolved remotely.

No Domino problem too complex

Thanks to the breadth and depth of Life IT’s Domino knowledge, their support team can deal with the most complex of IBM Domino-related issues. Whether you require Domino application, operational or technical support, Life IT can deliver.

Domino support as and when you need it

Life IT’s standard Domino support package covers you during standard office hours. Of course, these days not everyone sticks to a 9am to 5.30pm working day – especially when collaborating with colleagues overseas in different time zones. Don’t worry – 24/7 Domino and Lotus Notes support is also available on request.

IBM-approved Domino support

It’s worth knowing that Life IT are IBM Premier Business Partners – so you can rest assured you’re in safe hands, with a high-quality support service and a team who knows what to do and the best way to do it.

Plus programming services…

If you decide you need to tailor your Domino applications to suit your needs, extending the functionality of existing applications or even creating bespoke solutions from scratch, Life IT’s Domino programming gurus can also help develop the ideal solution.

With high-quality Domino support from Life IT, you’ll keep working, collaborating and communicating – no matter what. Find out more at www.lifeit.co.uk/infrastructure/domino/domino-support.
