State of IBM i Modernization Survey: Future of IBM i

Posted by Profound Logic on Mar 26, 2019 4:05:44 PM



This year's annual 'State of IBM i Modernization' survey focused on three key topics: the current state of the IBM i, the current attitude towards the IBM i, and what the future looks like for the IBM i. Profound Logic reached out to the  community with a series of vital questions on these topics and we received nearly 800 responds from developers, executives and everyone in-between. This large scale response resulted in one of our most productive surveys, giving us a wide range of answers. 

Traditionally, the negative view of the IBM i has been a roadblock for future development and modernization. This survey proves that that attitude is shifting, with more businesses having more confidence in the platform than in the past. Concerns are still present - a diminishing developer pool and outdated interfaces for example - but none that can't easily be addressed to ensure a long and healthy future for the IBM i business.

This three-part blog series will dive into the key topics discussed within the survey: This week we discuss the Future of the IBM i.

Node Run: Bringing Node.js to the Cloud

Posted by Profound Logic on Dec 5, 2018 9:00:00 AM

One thing that sometimes holds us back from trying new technologies is the time and effort required to install and set up the environment. While installing Node.js and Profound.js are usually very straightforward it does take a little time. What if you could jump right in and start developing without having to install anything and have several application templates at your fingertips immediately?

Introducing NodeRun! A brand new cloud environment that provides users with their own spaces to create Node.js applications. The environment comes with a Visual Designer, full IDE, and has Profound.js pre-installed on a Linux virtual server. Here are some of the highlights of our newest tool:
