"Our Power i Innovators are a team of experts applying out of the box applications and developing custom solutions to keep your company competitive within the IBM Power i (AS400) environment."

The Power i’s are great machines, but require serious talent to be developed, integrated and customized to meet business objectives.

We are a modern development team, here to build applications for your Power i. We will walk you through the full software development lifecycle, from requirement gathering to development, to post production support, and everything in between.

  • Take advantage of the native security feature on the Power i to ensure your data transfers are safe.

Our Approach

The Power i is one of the most broadly capable systems on the market today. But so few take advantage of its full potential, often using Windows or Linux systems to develop applications with a modern look and feel, when their existing midrange system could handle the job more securely and cost effectively.

The Power i ILE environment allows you to leverage many classes and scripts available in the public domain like Java.  Power i Innovators are experienced in many modern languages to enhance your Power i workhorse capabilities.

Problem: Our client's core system was an AS400 and had a requirement to convert a high volume of documents - PDF to TIF, PCL to PDF, TIF splitting and combining, and TIF to PDF. The AS400 was generating the bulk of the documents but the system was not ideal for the conversion process. A fleet of Windows PCs were set up, each one running a different type of conversion process, however, they were unreliable and often needed user intervention to resolve errors. READ MORE

The AS400 was used as their core system at the time and held their accounting software. The client wanted to provide access to their external customers to specific areas of the PAS system. How could the systems communicate with each other in real-time so that critical data flowed between the two platforms? READ MORE
