Dayton, OH - January 19, 2015 - Profound Logic Software (www.profoundlogic.com) and ARCAD Software (www.arcadsoftware.com) today announced a strategic partnership to provide end-to-end modernization solutions for businesses that use the IBM i platform.
ARCAD Software offers a breadth of tools and services that enable businesses to modernize IBM i by analyzing, structuring and transforming their IBM i source code and databases. By partnering with Profound Logic Software, ARCAD adds an application modernization and development component to its current offering. Now, businesses can take advantage of this partnership to easily modernize and extend the value of their IBM i systems at all levels with a streamlined, integrated set of solutions that boost productivity, encourage agility, minimize risk and reduce costs.
"By combining forces with Profound Logic, we are able to provide the most complete modernization offering for IBM i on the market. Our integrated solutions help IBM i shops automate and secure their entire modernization path-from the start with the analysis of the existing system, to the structuring of the development environment, the transformation of the user interface, source code and database, and finally the testing and validation of results," explains Philippe Magne, ARCAD CEO. "ARCAD and Profound Logic share a common conviction to IBM i and our areas of expertise are highly complementary."
ARCAD Software provides a methodology and toolset for modernization, in three phases: Analyze, Structure and Transform. This approach encourages structured development including change management and test automation to secure the process and reduce the risk of error. The application modernization solutions offered by Profound Logic, including the Profound UI Suite, enable companies to natively design, update and maintain their IBM i applications. Together, ARCAD and Profound Logic provide businesses on IBM i an all-inclusive and seamless way to simplify modernization at all stages of the application lifecycle. Additionally, this partnership offers businesses an alternative to migrating away from the IBM i platform or investing in non-IBM i technologies in order to modernize.
"We are extremely pleased to partner with ARCAD and give businesses a true, native path to IBM i modernization," says Profound Logic CEO Alex Roytman. "We admire ARCAD as a company and their commitment to the platform, and we look forward to many years of giving companies the ability to modernize and extend the value of their IBM i systems."
ARCAD and Profound Logic customers are encouraged to reach out to their sales representatives to learn about how to grow their existing toolsets to include these new offerings.
