As the IBMi is also used for WEB and client/server applications, deployment processing includes sources and objects to both IBMi and Windows servers. And deployment to these 2 platforms must be done concurrently. For example, a .net application using the IBMi as the web server includes dlls and other Windows objects on the Windows platform as well as files and other objects on the IBMi.

With the iAM4Windows software, you can include both the IBMi and Windows sources and objects in a single project and promote and deploy them to the 2 platforms with a single click! The Windows sources and objects deployment processing is completely integrated to the IBMi sources and objects deployment processing. And this combined deployment processing is completely automated. So you will always be sure that the IBMi version matches the Windows version.




Key features
» Both IBMi and Windows sources and objects can be included in the same project definition.
» Windows deployment processing is 100% automated and completely automated to the IBMi deployment processing
» Deploy to both platforms with a single click
» Deployment to multiple Windows/Citrix servers
» Supports WEB and Client/Server applications
» Entirely configurable within the iAM4Windows software
» Supports all Windows source and object types (dll, html pages, scripts, Word documents, …)
– everything on Windows.




Technical details
Configuration

An unlimited number of development processes can be defined in the iAM4Windows software with different parameters for each target environment. For example, going from Development environment to Test environment on the IBMi, you can specify that Windows objects be deployed to the associated Test Windows server(s). Going from Test to QA, deployment on Windows objects should be done to the associated QA Windows servers and so on up to production. A different and unlimited number of target Windows server(s) can be defined for each target IBMi environment and server.

Customer example

One of our Customers uses the iAM4Windows software since 2009 to manage all of their green screen and Client/Server applications. They’re using ACBS client/server application and deployment on the IBMi is done using iAM4IBMi and deployment to their 7 production Windows servers is done using iAM4Windows. Deployment of Windows objects (dlls, xml files, …) to Windows servers is done at the same time that sources and objects are promoted on the IBMi.




Benefits
Automated task

Tremendous time gains are achieved with iAM4Windows complete, reliable task automation. Less time is spent transferring, compiling and validating results, leaving more time for the critical tasks of software development & maintenance.


Eliminates human error factor

iAM4Windows eliminates the risks of human error by automating deployment to Windows servers.
