Your MultiValue applications have stood the test of time, and represent decades of investment. They're stable and reliable, but they may also have workflows and interfaces that are decades old. Your users and customers expect fresh, modern web and mobile experiences, but rip-and-replace approaches are time-consuming, risky and expensive. On top of that your MultiValue professionals may not be familiar with modern development tools, and your younger web and mobile developers learned Python in college, not BASIC. Where do you start, and how do you make sure everything goes as planned?
With Rocket solutions, digital transformation doesn't have to be a scary proposition. From facilitating interface updates to making MultiValue data and logic available as APIs, we can help you expedite the delivery of web and mobile projects in a way that's quick, low-risk, and non-invasive. We can even help you manage your development and release workflows with DevOps tools made specifically for MultiValue environments.
Manage complex application lifecycles easily
Developing and updating MultiValue applications can be complicated and risky. Managing those projects with the typical combination of customized software, open-source tools, and home-grown scripts can make it even more challenging. Issues that arise in the build and deployment processes can cause production outages, software failures, and even revenue loss. And without automation, manual DevOps processes can be error-prone and drive up unpredictability and risk.
Rocket® Aldon® Lifecycle Manager (MultiValue Edition) provides automated ALM and DevOps tools designed for the Rocket UniVerse®, UniData®, and D3® MultiValue application platforms and their components, including both the databases and the application code. You can establish rules and automate manual processes, ensuring that each step is performed the right way, in the right order, and targeted at the right recipients. As a result, you get defined, automated, and traceable DevOps processes that improve quality and boost productivity, ensuring your software deployments work the way they’re supposed to.
Reinvent character-based interfaces quickly and easily
Rocket® LegaSuite® Web lets you web-enable critical back-end applications so your users can access them from web browsers and mobile devices. LegaSuite Web makes digital transformation projects fast and easy, with drag-and-drop tools and runtime components that extend and repurpose any MultiValue application as a user-friendly, HTML5 web application.
Unlike other solutions, LegaSuite lets you leverage existing development without having to install or modify code. It also automatically extracts and synchronizes all screens of a legacy application with any modernized user interface, ensuring consistent and coordinated change management at all ends of the organization. That means making a change to your application or source code on the back end won't break your interface on the front end.
Transform existing applications without rewriting them
Your customers expect fresh, modern digital and mobile experiences. But replacing proven MultiValue applications can be expensive, risky, and expensive. Rocket® API helps you unlock the valuable information that’s stored in your host applications for use virtually anywhere, including cloud, mobile, self-service applications, and more. By wrapping application and data and logic in APIs, even your most junior developer can create new web and mobile experiences based on your MultiValue applications—without requiring risky modifications to the underlying source code.
Rocket API helps you turn your MultiValue environment into a modern API-enabled platform utilizing SOAP or RESTful services, making it easy to integrate core business functionality into web or mobile experiences. Built-in intelligence ensures that codebase changes don't break the connection between your APIs and the applications that call them, letting you modernize without the time, expense, or risk normally associated with rip-and-replace efforts. Rocket API helps take the risk out of digital transformation projects with a no-code/low-code model—eliminating the need to write new application code.
