Profound UI Support for Node.js and COBOL

Profound Logic believes that enterprises are most successful when they modernize their legacy systems while embracing cutting-edge skills for future development. While RPG is at the heart of IBM i, there are still many companies that run legacy COBOL applications. At the other end of the spectrum, businesses looking to the future of application development on IBM i are discovering the value of open source languages, like Node.js. At COMMON 2016, Profound Logic will announce its plans to expand support for both.

“Node.js is one of the most exciting things to happen to IBM i in a long time,” says Profound Logic CEO, Alex Roytman. “Node is a natural fit for our existing technology at Profound Logic and we are embracing it in a big way. Our upcoming Profound.js offering will open up businesses on IBM i to technologies they once thought were out of reach and help attract new and younger developers to the platform”.
