The IBM midrange computing platform has endured a number of name changes over the years, starting with the AS/400 to the iSeries to the System i to the current name of the IBM i (at least for now).
Name changes aside, the IBM i remains one of the most powerful, reliable and stable platforms in the computing world.
With over 20 years of experience on the IBM midrange platform, Web Technology has the knowledge and skills to take on any System i project.
- Database design
Our skilled developers have designed complex DB2 databases for large companies as well as more simple databases in custom projects for smaller businesses.
DDS (data definition specifications) is prevalent throughout the System i database world and our developers have extensive experience with all its capabilities.
SQL is increasingly being used for data definition and data manipulation, offering some benefits not found with DDS.
Our staff utilizes the strong support of SQL in the i5/OS System i operating system (formerly called OS/400) to create efficient and flexible data solutions.

Java – The System i offers full support for Java built into the operating system.
With the "write once, run anywhere" nature of Java, most Java application can simply be ported on to your System i.
Web Technology has undertaken many Java-based projects on the System i and delivered successful results.
PHP – Zend Core is fully integrated with the IBM i operating system and provides an attractive option for web development.
The rock-solid reliability of the IBM i coupled with PHP make for a reliable and scalable web environment.
SQL – SQL is a flexible and powerful tool for working with data.
Our staff utilizes the strong support of SQL in the i/OS System i operating system (formerly called OS/400) to create efficient and flexible data solutions.
CL/RPG – RPG and CL are at the heart of many business applications.
Our development staff has dealt with all flavors of both, keeping current with the latest enhancements and putting them to use in new projects.

Everyone knows about the reliability of the System i and i/OS as a database server.
Our staff can help you unlock all the functionality and power that the i/OS database has to offer.
Often overlooked is the ability of the System i to function as a powerful and scalable web server.
With support for Apache and PHP built in to the system, and the ability to run many other open source applications within the operating system, the System i may be the web server your company is looking for.
