The Decade of Crisis for the IBM i and RPG

Can you run your business when your RPG programmers retire?

Node.js, Python, and PHP may be the foundation for the future of IBM's midrange platform, but the applications of record that most IBM i-driven businesses depend on were created with RPG. Alas, IBM is carefully avoiding the critical issue of how to persist IBM i RPG applications into the future. Many of our customers express a growing concern about how they are going to maintain and enhance their legacy RPG applications.

We understand those concerns and don't think they should be ignored or marginalized. This white paper provides some thoughts and guidance on the issues.
