2018 productivity potpourri

Can you believe that 2018 is nearly in the can? Here is a potpourri of productivity software and videos that I added to my daily workflows in 2018.


Happy Holidays 2018

ASNA wishes you and your family the very best this holiday season. We do greatly appreciate your business and look forward to working with you on your IBM i projects in 2019. Thank you very much for being an ASNA customer!


ASNA Synon Escape migrates and refactors Synon apps to C#

ASNA Synon Escape, the latest member of ASNA's family of IBM i RPG application migration suites, migrates and refactors Synon/Cool:2E/CA 2E apps to C#. This lets Synon shops ensure a solid future for their core enterprise application without Synon or RPG dependencies. Synon Escape exploits the Synon Model and Synon runtime to provide a readable, refactored, and maintainable C# version of the application.


Easy access to after-hours ASNA product licensing!

ASNA Pronto is a service that offers self-service, after-hours, emergency ASNA product license keys to customers. The Pronto service, pronto.asna.com, is hosted, separately from asna.com (to ensure a separation of concerns), in Microsoft Azure. To get a license key, registered ASNA customers login to Pronto, select the product they are licensing, and a valid license is immediately emailed to them.


A new home for ASNA's documentation and downloads

ASNA finally put its old docs/downloads site, devnet.asna.com, to rest earlier this summer. That old site served us well, but it had evolved into a legacy code nightmare for us.


ASNA announces game-changing Synon-based application migration

ASNA announces Synon Escape to address challenges by rationalizing the custom runtime to provide a readable, maintainable C# version of the application.
