Somewhat relevant to this thread; I have CISC AS400 310-2044; application is
CS order system with basic billing\invoicing\client info backended into a JD
Edwards environment. There is also substantial data sharing going on between
two major apps which control the client memberships. Currently, there is 40+
GB data and some 3/4 million lines RPG code.
We have just be acquired by a small developer outfit whose specialty is in
UNIX/NT environments. Their intention is to replace all AS400 apps/hardware
within 6-9 months with C++ developed apps rather than upgrading our CISC box
(which is somewhat CPU deprived ). There will be telephony apps/hardware
integrated into the environment (stuff we don't have currently but would
like to have). Is the 6-9 months time frame realistic for replacing our
current RPG stuff?
