Organizations with mission-critical applications developed on IBM i (aka iSeries, AS/400) face major challenges with outdated change management tools and monolithic programs written in the older variants of the RPG language.
To avoid the high risk and cost of migrating off the IBM i platform - ARCAD Pack for i enables customers to integrate their development into the same DevSecOps pipeline as used on distributed systems.
Distributed by IBM, ARCAD plugins are the only technology enabling IBM i customers to achieve an enterprise CI/CD pipeline:
· Use UrbanCode Deploy (UCD) to automatically deploy/rollback IBM i applications
· Include RPG/COBOL source code in the same GitLab repository as other platforms
· Use GitLab CI to orchestrate a DevSecOps pipeline on IBM i
