The lazy programmer’s session: A better way to manage your IBM i [X-Analysis]

With automated analysis tools, you can reduce the time spent managing applications and remove the risks involved in making changes to the code.

In this 51-minute webinar, Richard Thomas will introduce you to X-Analysis, used by thousands of IBM i developers to analyze billions of lines of code.

You will learn how to use this powerful tool for:

  • Automated graphical documentation that abstracts code implementation and makes it easy for IT to visualize and understand application design and flow.
  • Powerful impact analysis that tracks “where used” information, starting from a single field or variable through all iterations and associated variables and fields.
  • Extraction of relational data models from RPG/COBOL/CA-2E (SYNON), facilitating database modernization and re-engineering efforts.
  • Extraction of business rules from RPG/COBOL, enabling IT to cross-reference, consolidate and store business rules, exposing the business logic.
  • Design, quality and complexity metrics that help IT measure and track program complexities against established benchmarks such as Cyclomatic, Halstead, and Maintainability Index.
