ASNA Releases Wings 5.2

ASNA is proud to announce ASNA Wings™ 5.2. Wings revolutionizes the process of modernizing IBM i RPG character-based user interfaces with a browser-based alternative. Because Wings uses IBM’s Open Access RPG Edition to enable the modernization of the user interface portions of native RPG programs, all program logic and database access remain hosted on the IBM i.


ASNA Announces its “No Stinkin’ Screen Scrapers Here” Tour

ASNA is proud to announce the first two cities in its “No Stinkin’ Screen Scrapers Here” 2012 US tour. The first two free hands-on workshops will be held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada on February 9th and 24th, respectively. These workshops are the natural follow-on to ASNA’s previous tour of half-day Wings presentations around the country. Those presentations were very well received, but we heard attendee feedback loud and clear: you want to touch Wings; you want to use it! That’s what you’ll do in these workshops.


ASNA Celebrates 30 Years Serving the IBM Midrange Community

ASNA is proud to announce its 30th anniversary in December 2011. For 30 years, ASNA has made its customers successful with its innovative, award-winning, and patented software solutions for IBM Midrange and Microsoft products. Through the years, ASNA has transitioned and reinvented itself continually to provide leading technologies for its customers’ ever-changing requirements. In its early days, ASNA’s flagship products for the System/34 and System/36 were Acceler8, for improved performance, and 400RPG, to provide RPG III-like power to RPG II. The company moved onto the AS/400 (IBM i) in 1988 with Activ8, the performance booster, and Extermin8, the AS/400′s first interactive source level debugger.

ASNA Wings Half-Day Workshops in Raleigh/Durham and Cincinnati

ASNA is proud to announce two free ASNA Wings half-day workshops in Raleigh/Durham and Cincinnati on September 28th and 29th, respectively. In these workshops ASNA’s Roger Pence will show how to use ASNA Wings to modernize RPG green-screen user interfaces. These workshops follow two previous, very successful, half-day workshops in Chicago and New York City last May. ASNA Wings is a revolutionary new product that modernizes IBM i – RPG character-based user interfaces. Wings is a member of the ASNA Monarch family of RPG modernization products. Using IBM’s Open Access RPG Edition, all RPG programming logic and file IO remains on the IBM i. ASNA Wings converts green screens into browser-based replacements.


Official Rational Open Access for RPG Edition Reseller

ASNA international is proud to announce that it is now an official reseller of IBM’s Rational Open Access RPG Edition. By reselling Open Access, ASNA makes it much easier for customers to acquire the product. Open Access, which was released by IBM in the spring of 2010, is perhaps the most fundamental change that IBM has made to the IBM i platform since it was introduced. Open Access provides an i5 API that enables ILE RPG programs to redirect file IO to third-party “handlers.” Since February of 2011, ASNA has been shipping its Open Access-based product ASNA Wings. Wings provides a browser-based alternative to the IBM i’s traditional character-based green-screen user interface. With Wings and Open Access, the ILE RPG logic and file IO remains on the IBM i but you get the benefits of a dramatically improved user interface. Wings lets you selectively modernize your display files; the display files you choose not to modernize are rendered with the ASNA 5250 emulator which is built into Wings.
