LANSA 2012 User Conference

As many look forward to the release of LANSA 13.0 it is sometimes rewarding to reflect on the history of LANSA.  The early years were filled with concepts like:

  • Data Repository
  • 4th Generation Language
  • Multilingual
  • Templates
  • Database Triggers
You could recap all of the commands/parameters on a simple quick reference card.
Marketing was generally limited to print media.  (Remember printed trade rags?)
Presentations were given with slide projectors.
You actually had to fly somewhere to present.
Yes LANSA and the industry have come a long way.

Fast forward and we look forward to the conference that will feature:
  • Cloud Based Labs (Bring your laptop)
  • Web & Mobile App development
  • Business Objects
  • Some of the famous and familiar speakers in the LANSA community:
    • Diane Joester
    • Mark Duignan
    • Don Nelson
    • Madan Divaker
    • David Brault
    • and many others
  • Opportunity to network

Mobile Applications....Go Android!

In the past six months, as Android has gained momentum and market share. Last week, comScore reportedthat in the three months ending in May, Android was the top smartphone platform in the U.S. with 38 percent of existing devices. It grew faster than iOS, which reached 26.6 percent, while Research In Motion's BlackBerry platform fell to 24.7 percent, comScore said.   Good News: aXes and LANSA Wams can deliver to both!

Footnote: Is it a just a coincidence that the Android is colored Green like LANSA?

Cross Browser Compatibility and LANSA aXes

With the new release of aXes version 2.1 (Beta version) all the major browser types are supported.  In prior versions, the aXes product suite only supported the Microsoft (MS) IE browser.  Now aXes supports the following browsers: MS-IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari.  All of these browsers combined represent a huge user base.  Opening up aXes to all of these types of browsers vastly broadens the user community for who can use aXes and thus, iSeries applications via the web.  The only browser not sanctioned currently is Opera.  It’s officially unsupported but it executes with this new version.  Opera is a Java based browser so it’s very popular on mobile devices.

For more information or to download a free 30 day evaluation copy of aXes, please visit our website.  For further questions on aXes or other LANSA products, contact us at 1-800-887-1834 or request information by clicking here.
