We all have invested a great deal of time and money into developing applications to run our business. Of course, over the years, the applications start to look and feel a little old, and show their age. How can you modernize your applications without losing your investment? In this session, we will look at how Rational Open Access for RPG makes it possible to modernize your application without re-starting from scratch, as well as how it can be used to quickly write new, modern, applications. We will also discuss the modernization process, with a focus on modernizing the user interface, and we will give you the opportunity to try our modernization tool, hands-on, to develop a modern GUI application.
