Improving and Reusing Investments in Legacy Systems

Behind everything we do is the belief that legacy systems contain tremendous value, not just in the past, but for today and tomorrow as well.


We believe in starting with what has been proven to work. What works in AS/400 - IBM i IT shops are legacy systems, developed and tested through many years of use.


We take those legacy systems and analyze them, parse them, sort them, index them, translate them. We build them into a repository of many dimensions and many views and many outputs.


A repository that reflects your intelligence and your efforts of decades of development, representing thousands to millions of dollars of investment.


We create products that make your system more:

  • Accessible
  • Understandable
  • Usable
  • And ultimately, more valuable to your company

We do this for your purposes of:

  • Application maintenance and analysis
  • Rewriting, modernization and reengineering
  • Package acquisition and gap analysis
25 Years of Continuous Development in Response to Customer Needs

What started as a cross-reference tool in the 1980's has evolved into an extensive suite of needs-driven tools and a full scale reengineering system for RPG, COBOL and CA:2E applications.


The X-Analysis repository has grown over the years to contain hundreds of internal analytical tables and many hundreds of proven static analysis and reengineering programs.


We pride ourselves on our commitment to the continuing extension and improvement of our products, making us one of the few major ISV's in the IBM i market to continue to do so at full scale and speed.


Our Customer List Speaks for Itself

It's no accident that we wrote the IBM Redbook on modernizing and improving the maintainability of RPG applications. It's no accident because IBM itself is one among many of our customers and partners that represent a Who's Who of the AS/400-IBM i world. Please click here to read some of our case studies.


Responsive Intelligence

Our product reflects our approach and what we believe: listen to our customers, think hard and work hard. For 25 years we have been privileged to employ some of the top talents in the AS/400 world. We have spent that time inventing and refining the most comprehensive toolset on the planet for analyzing and reengineering RPG, COBOL and CA:2E applications.
