TMW, IBM sign application
Dec 1, 2009 9:07 AM
TMW Systems Inc has signed an agreement with IBM to evaluate a new set of application modernization capabilities, including IBM’s Rational Software Delivery Platform and the EGL programming language. The project will involve an RPG-based software application from TMW designed to provide business exception monitoring and alerts when used with complex, RPG-based operations systems. These include TMW’s TL2000 enterprise transportation software and TMT Fleet Maintenance–IBM i.
“The opportunity to partner with IBM directly on a project of key importance to TMW and many of our customers, namely, protecting their investments in System i (OS/400) applications and infrastructure, is compelling for us,” said David Mook, chief operating officer and chief information officer for TMW Systems.
“EGL is a modern programming language specifically designed to help business developers leverage the benefits of System i and Java platforms without extensive retraining to create Web 2.0-ready applications based on RPG code,” said Todd Britton, application transformation executive for IBM Rational Software.
