CMOne – The change management system for i5, iSeries and AS/400

Ready for change management?

The requirements for software engineering regarding quality, development time and program performance have been rising. Due to this process we developed a support product to help with adapting to the continuously changing processes in companies. Open-heart surgery on live programs is a thing of the past. CMOne uses a layered system, supports teamwork, delivers tools for software distribution and supports modernization with SQL. Since the future software development will be inside the Rational Developer for i, CMOne will be delivered to our customers as plug-in. Change management is essential for transparent structures and integration into companyy processes.

CMOne is a developed change management system with all the necessary functionalities to easily reach the following goals:

CMOne is Austria

The VOG AG with headquarters in Linz is a specialist for distributing food and non-food articles in Austria and other central European countries.

The whole group consisting of 13 subsidiaries is controlled from Linz. For most companies the classical central management tasks are carried out here, to keep a tight organization. By using modern EDV-systems controlling and planning for the group is made far easier.

Rapid Fire for CMOne

Rapid Fire is an elegant PDQ-function (promote data quickly) that lets you transfer very large amount of data to a database with minimal downtime.

During a databank installation your users can continue to work and only have to take their hands of the data for the final step of data provisioning. All data changes will be synchronized, from the start of Rapid Fire to the end of the job automatically.  After synchronizing the final provision takes part.
