X-Analysis Software Suite
X-Analysis is a comprehensive suite that provides everything you need to understand, manage and improve your IBM i applications. It allows you to be more productive, make informed business decisions and automate your modernization process.
The suite provides detailed analysis and interactive diagrams that enable an in-depth understanding of RPG, COBOL, and CA 2E (Synon) applications and data. It is used to document, analyze and describe systems in a simple manner that can then be shared throughout the organization, even with members who are not technical. IT professionals can use the suite to extract business rules, audit code quality, perform impact analysis, modernize applications and databases, resize fields, and more.

WHY IS APPLICATION LIFECYCLE MANAGEMENT IMPORTANT WHEN MODERNIZING LEGACY APPLICATIONS?
The process of modernization can be very complex. Despite the implementation of tooling dedicated to application modernization, your data, including old code versions should be stored and all changes made to software should be tracked and reported. Application lifecycle management tooling can help you take full control over your modernization project and deliver the old-new application with high quality and without risking data loss or other conversion problems. Deliver on time and within budget while remaining compliant with auditors’ or other regulations’ requirements.
Tooling such as TD/OMS will analyze your programs, register the change and copy the program into the developers’ sandbox environment. Storing previous versions of your software is extremely important in case something goes wrong, for example when you have to roll back to a previous version of the modernized application. TD/OMS will also keep the track/history of your application for reporting purposes, which also may be required for audit / SOX / ISO / HIPAA compliance.
Unified ALM Workflow solution
TD/OMS and X-Analysis integration
The core of the solution is industry-leading analysis and documentation from X-Analysis provided through Fresche’s open API. Through a sophisticated interface, it combines with Remain Software’s TD/OMS, and benefits from extensions to IBM’s RDi LPEX editor. The result is an ultra-modern industry standard in development and management of IBM i applications.
This Unified ALM ( Application Life Cycle Management) Workflow solution provides developers with powerful impact analysis and automated code review during promotions to help maintain standards and resolve problems before they reach QA or production. Graphical analysis and documentation provide visual understanding for unfamiliar application areas with objects and code ring-fenced for projects and assigned tasks.
