For over 125 years, Brunswick has been the leader in bowling products, services, and industry expertise for the development and renovation of new and existing bowling centers and mixed-use recreation facilities across the entertainment industry. However, the lifeblood of Brunswick’s capital equipment business was running on a 15-year old software application written in Visual Basic 6 (VB6) with a SQL Server back-end. The application was at the end of its life and needed to be replaced.
Their IT team had the development expertise within their specific operating system and technology stack, but reaching beyond that into multi-UX development was presenting a skill and learning curve challenge. With the help of Visual LANSA, they found an easy-to-use, long-term platform that enabled their team to collaborate, innovate, and integrate with existing systems and databases within a single platform.
Read the case study to learn how they achieved success and increased the speed of development by 30% with Visual LANSA.

Five Reasons Why Node Is the Solution your Company Needs Right Now
There is certainly no shortage of options when it comes to choosing a path to modernization. But two common approaches – re-writing the application code and migrating to a packaged application – can be riskier than sticking with the legacy applications. Knowing this, it’s no wonder why the path to modern applications is a long and bumpy one for so many businesses.

But there is some good news in the way of a development language called Node.js. You may have heard some buzz around it, as it’s currently in use at some of the world’s top businesses, including Walmart, PayPal, Uber, Netflix, and Google, to name a few. Profound Logic's solutions and services, including RPG-to-Node code transformation, make Node a perfect solution to address your current business challenges. Here are five reasons why we’ve adopted Node for legacy modernization and think you should, too!

Business users want new applications now. Market and regulatory pressures require faster application updates and delivery into production. Your IBM i developers may be approaching retirement, and you see no sure way to fill their positions with experienced developers. In addition, you may be caught between maintaining your existing applications and the uncertainty of moving to something new.

In this white paper, you’ll learn how to think of these issues as opportunities rather than problems. We’ll explore motivations to migrate or modernize, their risks and considerations you should be aware of before embarking on a (migration or modernization) project.

Lastly, we’ll discuss how modernizing IBM i applications with optimized business workflows, integration with other technologies and new mobile and web user interfaces will enable IT – and the business – to experience time added value and much more.

2022 marks the eighth edition of the IBM i Marketplace Survey Results. Each year, HelpSystems captures data on how businesses use the IBM i platform and the IT and cybersecurity initiatives it supports.

Over the years, this survey has become a true industry benchmark, revealing to readers the trends that are shaping and driving the market and providing insight into what the future may bring for this technology.

This survey always encourages conversation, debate, and discussion about IBM i, and the challenges of the past couple years continue to bring more change to organization across the globe. Budgets have shifted to security and to support a more remote workforce, organizations have continued to work fully distributed, and business as usual looks very different than it did just a few years ago.

Despite ongoing challenges, almost 500 IBM i users from all over the world completed this year’s survey, which revealed a promising outlook for Power10, a growing RDi user base, and a continued concern about cybersecurity. Along with cybersecurity, the most pertinent topics in the IBM I community include high availability, disaster recovery, modernization, automation, IBM i skills, and all things cloud. There were many other data points that we hope you will find interesting as you plan your 2022 IT projects.
