A look at Presto

See how Presto gives your IBM i Green Screens a modern user interface

Quickly convert entire green screen applications to the web with Presto and then expand these web-enabled screens at your pace, screen by screen or programme by programme. Presto offers much faster results than tools that web-enable one screen at a time. It's also a much smaller investment than rewriting or redeveloping your applications in a web development language. Presto provides an easy transition to web development for RPG and COBOL programmers.

Presto gives you the option to use it as a starting point for building new web applications in CGI or PHP, or as a long-term web-based solution. You can also combine Presto with BCD's other web development solutions to maximise flexibility in choosing your modernisation path.

How Presto can help you:

Intuitive web GUI

Presto transforms your green screens into modern, intuitive websites that increase user satisfaction and reduce training costs.

Simple deployment and easy access

Users only need a browser to access the web-enabled screens internally or remotely from desktops or mobile devices.

Use IBM i and future-proof it

Use existing applications to meet current business needs while providing the flexibility to leverage future technologies, such as AI.

Immediate results

Your existing green screens are instantly accessible as modern web pages without the need for source code changes.

Improve workflows by adding tabs, dropdowns, autocomplete, date pickers and more to screens without programming HTML.

Provide a more seamless end-user experience by using APIs/web services to integrate with additional web applications and data sources.

Was sagen Kunden über Presto?



Presto is a real game changer. Presto instantly transformed our existing apps and OS screens into web apps that we can use on mobile devices without having to change any code. I am an IBM i (RPG) developer with more than 25 years of experience, but learning this tool was easy and the learning curve minimal. In my opinion, Presto should come with every IBM i sold.
