The Newlook suite breathes new life into IBM i applications by transforming traditional 5250 (green screen) systems - modernizing, connecting and opening them to meet the growing needs of today's end users.
We believe that the best solutions are also the simplest ones, and that the real value of technology is in empowering people. In order to continually improve our software, we work hard to understand the people who use it, to develop solutions that make a real difference.
Desktop, Web and Mobile for IBM i
The Smart approach to green screen modernization
Users and clients want simple-to-use graphical interfaces that provide anywhere, anytime access to the power and rich functionality of your IBM i applications. A modern UI can have a positive impact on your users and create opportunities for your organization. Newlook Developer lets you show what your IBM i applications are really made of by providing easy, quick and secure access to the business when and where needed. Newlook Developer also provides Application Insights, which shows you how users navigate your application: which screens and fields they use most, how they move from one section to the next, the workflows they follow, etc. This information can guide development and modernization of your application.
