Halcyon, a HelpSystems Company

 

Today’s businesses must be available 24/7 with fewer people having to manage more complex systems and processes.
IT departments receive a constant bombardment of information from a diverse variety of operating systems, business applications, and critical processes and support a complex array of servers and devices running across their entire network.
With tight resources and the need to keep costs in check, more and more is expected of IT operational staff to handle this information efficiently. They need to ensure a swift response with appropriate actions, that essential data is received at the right time, prove service levels are maintained, that contingency and high availability strategies are fully operational, and that vital business activities run smoothly and without disruption.
What kind of safety net processes can you put in place so you can combat information overload, yet not miss a single thing, drop the ball, or cause a negative impact on the business—and more importantly, how do you go about it?
Learn how to handle the daily deluge of information and discover five strategies you can deploy to become an IT superhero in your organization.

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!

The annual Profound Logic ‘State of IBM i Modernization Survey” takes a look at the trends and attitudes that shape the IBM i modernization market. We reached out to the IBM i community, and the response was outstanding: close to 800 people, nearly 300 more than last year, took the survey. This enthusiasm resulted in very interesting findings for how businesses plan to use and modernize the platform in the coming year.

As you read through each section of the survey, you will see our summary of the results and suggestions for the future. We hope the survey will help your business better understand what is possible for your IBM i platform in the coming year.
