Lessons Learned Building IBM i Mobile Applications

The number one new development for IBM i customers takes the form of mobile applications. Being able to transform data into information and deliver it to any user, on any device, anywhere, at any time, is normally the first mobile application. Being able to modernize workflow to improve user efficiency and effectiveness with the "anywhere, anytime” approach ensures that IT is providing systems to enable businesses can become agile, compete better in local and global markets, and succeed in a modern world.

Building and delivering mobile applications often appears to be a difficult task. There are many tools, many vendors, and many architectures and approaches to consider. Traditionally, IBM i applications are lengthy procedural applications and don’t lend themselves to mobile delivery. This session will outline many lessons learned while building mobile applications for IBM i companies.

We will cover the tools that can be used, the modernization techniques that can be leveraged, and the new approaches that are required to deliver mobile applications from an IBM i base. He will discuss building new mobile applications and repurposing existing IBM i applications - both green screen and web - to be delivered to mobile devices in a modern world.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand differences between IBM i green and mobile apps
  • Gain some design ideas for mobile apps
