X-Analysis View helps speed up IBM i development

X-Analysis is a comprehensive suite that provides everything you need to understand, manage and improve your IBM i applications. It allows you to be more productive, make informed business decisions and automate your modernization process. 

The suite provides detailed analysis and interactive diagrams that enable an in-depth understanding of RPG, COBOL, and CA 2E (Synon) applications and data. It is used to document, analyze and describe systems in a simple manner that can then be shared throughout the organization, even with members who are not technical. IT professionals can use the suite to extract business rules, audit code quality, perform impact analysis, modernize applications and databases, resize fields, and more.

X-Analysis Advisor helps everyone in your organization

Your entire organization can benefit from the valuable information in your RPG and COBOL applications. Developers will benefit from the technical features: code quality metrics, drill-downs through the call structure, business rule extraction, application areas, etc. But X-Analysis Advisor automatically analyzes your entire system and produces a wide variety of charts online or for export to Word, Visio or PDF, so everyone in the organization can easily access vital information.

Improve testing on your IBM i

X-Datatest is an effective data and test management solution, providing the functionality required to test large IBM i applications while helping to ensure full data protection.

IBM i applications have typically been heavily modified over the years, and usually do not come with a complete library of test cases or specifications. In addition, data protection principles have not always been applied. Yet, testing is the key to successful development and smooth implementation, and regulatory compliance is a growing concern.
