IBM i organizations are struggling to manage their new and legacy applications. Set to become the new standard for Application Lifecycle Management on IBM i, IBM Rational and ARCAD Software combine technologies to provide an integrated and multi-platform solution, focused on programmer productivity and rapid application release.

Join renowned IBM i expert Tim Rowe for an exclusive webinar that will take you step-by-step through a change on IBM i and distributed systems, with case examples of RPG, ILE, SQL, Java, and CASE tools.

ARCAD Pack for Rational combines the Rational Developer for i (RDi) IDE, Rational Team Concert for collaborative development, and key ARCAD modules for IBM i analysis, build and deploy.

For IBM i customers that have developed graphical front-ends, the new solution automates the build and deployment to multiple servers, all within a single process.

Another challenge is bringing new developers quickly up-to-speed. RPG is a complex language often unreadable to a new generation. With ARCAD Pack for Rational, new developers can work in a familiar RDi environment, convert old RPG code into more readable Free Format, and easily understand legacy applications with built-in analysis and documentation tools.

Reserve your spot today and learn how ARCAD Pack for Rational helps accelerate, trace and secure your application changes on multiple platforms.
