LANSA aXes: Web-Enable Your IBM i 5250 Apps on the Fly

Over the past few weeks we have seen Work From Home (WFH) become the norm for many businesses around the world. Numerous businesses already had the policies and infrastructure in place to allow remote workers access to everything they need to perform their daily duties. However, some companies are finding out it is not easy for remote workers to access legacy applications from the comfort of their homes. As WFH becomes more prominent, solutions to accessing applications that were never intended to be web enabled will become more important to businesses’ success.

Fortunately, LANSA has been enabling 5250 applications for web and mobile for years. LANSA’s aXes is a unique solution that allows 5250 applications to be converted to web pages on the fly.
