First Option partnered with Looksoftware in November 2011 in order to modernize the former Daprex financial application software. Our programming staff has been working diligently over the past few months and we are at the point where we are ready for a first look.
Looksoftware has been providing dynamic application modernization and integration solutions for customers and application vendors for over 15 years. Their architecture automates the modernization process, providing multi-channel front-end access, requiring no changes to your back-end IBM i, System i, AS/400, iSeries and System z applications.
Looksoftware's toolset enables programmers to seamlessly blend application modernization with development of new applications. This can be achieved using leading technologies like Open Access for RPG, Microsoft's .NET and Java, and provides a practical, long-term strategic path forward for all IBM i, System i, iSeries or AS/400 application investments.
First Option has been developing application software for the iSeries for 17 years and we are excited about this new venture. We have rolled out the test version to a select group of users and are getting some great feedback.
Stay tuned for exciting developments.....
