Aldon, a provider of application lifecycle management for IT compliance, and BCD, a provider of multi-platform application modernization services, have formed a strategic technology partnership aimed at bringing new levels of process automation and efficiency to web application development and modernization for the IBM i platform covering PHP and RPG-CGI centric projects.
Aldon said that the partnership marks the integration of its process-driven change management system, Aldon Lifecycle Manager, with BCD’s tools for IBM i and multi-platform web development, WebSmart ILE and WebSmart PHP.
Aldon also said that the combined system provides users with a host of new benefits when building web applications or modernizing legacy ones, including automated processes and deployment, inventory management, project and compliance reporting, and new levels of visibility into what team members are working on, where code lives, and project status.
According to Aldon, with the combined system IT managers will gain a view of all IT assets and projects at any given time and ensure compliance standards are met, while developers are free to focus on application innovation rather than administrative tasks. Managers of web application development and modernization projects should realize an immediate return from these improvements to their process.
Matt Scholl, CEO and president of Aldon, said: As we watch the open source, multi-platform, and IBM i worlds merge, it’s important to make sure process doesn’t fall by the wayside. The joint Aldon and BCD solution ensures that process is flowing across every facet of development. Both the business and IT sides of the house will benefit. We’re excited to work with BCD and look forward to a long-term partnership.
