Everything you need to manage IBM i application lifecycles



X-Analysis allows you IT department to quickly gain an understanding of your IBM i’s business rules, speeding the process of modernisation.

Fast conversion

Automatically convert legacy assets from RPG, COBOL, SYNON and DB into modern languages and databases.

Visualise Application Design

By automating graphical information, code implementation is extracted, and it is easy to visualise and understand application and flow.


You can use X-Analysis to quickly and efficiently understand your IBM i application’s business rules, code composition and dependencies, in order to reach strategic modernisation goals on-time and on budget.

X-Analysis automates graphical documentation to abstract code implementation, making it easy for your IT department to understand and visualise application design and flow. They can track “where used” information, starting from a single field or variable through all iterations and associated variables and fields, with X-Analysis’ powerful impact analysis tool.

The process of database modernisation and re-engineering efforts are made easier with the extraction of relational data models from RPG, COBOL or SYNON, and by extracting business roles from RPG or COBOL too, business rules are cross-referenced, consolidated and stored to expose the business logic at the core of the application.

Track and measure program complexities against established benchmarks, including Halstead, Cyclomatic and Maintainability Index, using design, quality and complexity metrics. X-Analysis automatically transforms legacy assets into modern languages which can be databased quickly and securely, with RPG, COBOL, SYNON and DB conversion.

Available as a complete solution or as individual modules depending on your needs and requirements:

X-Analysis Professional: automated RPG, COBOL and CA 2E (Synon) application documentation, data model extraction and impact analysis.
