IBM i Software Development


Need Help with IBM i Software Development Projects?

First Option is an IBM i software development company with a passion for solving critical business needs.  For the past 20 years we have hosted, developed, modernized, integrated, and interfaced software to meet cross industry core business requirements.   We are the developers of IBM i Watchdog by First Option, the owners of First Option Financial Suite (formerly Daprex), and the consultants that have integrated third party packages ranging from warehouse distribution to EDI.

We have been programming since 1995 and have some of the best consultants in the industry. No project is too large or too small, give us a call to discuss any project work you may have and we can give you a no cost quote and project overview.

We also offer application hosting for those who want to get off their iSeries but maintain an IBM i application; or you may have data on an old iSeries that we can store for you. As of January 2019, IBM will no longer provide maintenance for the Power 5 Systems and some of the older systems, so it may be a great time to start looking at alternatives instead of purchasing a new IBMi or going on 3rd party maintenance.

Lastly, if you are looking for a more affordable solution for IBMi monitoring software, we have IBMi Watchdog by First Option. Watchdog is used by a major data center in NY and Minnesota who we partner with for application hosting.
