Greg Patterson has been in the IT field for 17 years, the last 8 with BCD, where he is currently a Senior Sales Engineer. In addition to business development activities, Greg also coordinates pre-sales technical demonstrations and discussions, performs business analysis and is sometimes involved at the coding level for specific projects. Greg has a deep knowledge of BCD products from his time spent in support as a Senior Presto Support Specialist.
There are many different approaches to modernizing green screens and developing new IBM i web and mobile applications. In this session, you’ll learn the pros and cons of RPG OA, refacing, PHP and Node.js. If you have an HTTP application workload now, or are considering it in the future, please attend this session and see how easily it can be to administer, developer, and carve out multiple-environments without the complexity and overhead of another LPAR or full OS to manage.
You’ll also see technical demos of how to modernize green screens and develop new web and mobile applications with BCD’s Presto and WebSmart solutions.
Greg will give us 15 minutes covering the pros/cons of the various application modernization methodologies followed by two product demonstrations.
Come on out and show your support for BCD. Special thanks to Maxava (Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, & High Availability Software for the IBM i) for their generous contributions and support of the UIIPA membership.
