Enterprises need to transform their legacy Informix I4GL applications to modern web-based GUI applications to stay competitive and meet the evolving demands of customers in today’s world. This transformation is crucial due to technological advancements and the growing need for web-based applications.
One of the most significant benefits of migrating to web-based GUI applications is improved accessibility, enabling users to access the system from anywhere with an internet connection, whether in the office or working remotely. This flexibility is crucial in the current business environment, where remote work is becoming increasingly popular.
In addition to accessibility, web-based applications offer a more intuitive and recognizable user interface compared to classic terminal legacy I4GL applications, making it easier for users to navigate and use the system. Web-based applications also provide greater flexibility in how data is presented and the amount of information shown on the screen, due to the removal of the 24×80 screen limitation, providing application vendors with more freedom.
