vLegaci has announced the availability of a new, on-demand programming service for RPG applications. RPGAAS, or RPG As A Service, provides RPG programming services to companies who don't always have access to an RPG programmer. The service leverages vLegaci's program comprehension tool, Codelyzer, as a way for companies with limited RPG resources to maintain their business systems.
RPGAAS is part of vLegaci's formula for helping companies extend the life of their legacy systems and realize maximum value from them, according to vLegaci President Steve Kilner. "Consensus is emerging from IT thought leaders such as Gartner Group and Capers Jones that maintaining and modernizing legacy systems gives the best possible return on IT dollars," Kilner says. "For businesses with legacy RPG systems, the dwindling pool of RPG programmers poses the challenge of how to get unfamiliar programmers up to speed rapidly on complicated legacy code. vLegaci addresses this through the use of its innovative program comprehension tool, Codelyzer. This static and dynamic analysis tool enables new programmers to quickly assess unfamiliar RPG programs, thereby enabling the concept of a service such as RPGAAS."
