X-Analysis Professional: automated graphical documentation and impact analysis for RPG and COBOL


Understanding an IBM i application can be difficult, especially if developers are not familiar with the system or if the documentation is unclear. IBM i managers often turn to code analysis to improve visibility and productivity, but without a proven set of tools, they are still largely unsure what they’ve got. Not knowing your system leads to planning and estimation problems for maintenance, development and modernization. That’s where X-Analysis Professional comes in to help.

X-Analysis Professional brings clarity

Fresche’s X-Analysis Professional is an application analysis and productivity tool that lets IBM i developers analyze and document their systems in detail, and extract design information so they can easily make updates. It allows developers to better understand, maintain, enhance and evolve their RPG, CA 2E (SYNON) and COBOL applications. It identifies all areas that would be impacted by code changes, saving time as well as removing any risks typically associated with modifying the code. X-Analysis Professional is the foundation of the full X-Analysis toolset and works with the modules to provide extended functionality.
