Service offerings

IBM, in concert with Business Partners, plans to offer the following services in support of the product offerings:

  • IBM WebFacing Tool Conversion Feasibility Study

    A one-day service offering in which you electronically send your DDS files to the consultant. The DDS is evaluated for suitability as a candidate for the conversion to a Web application using the IBM WebFacing Tool.

  • IBM WebFacing Tool Conversion Proof of Concept

    A three-day fixed-price service offering in which you send your DDS files to the consultant. A vertical slice of the application is then converted to a Web application with the IBM WebFacing Tool. The converted application is then hosted on a server at the service provider's Web site where you can log in and view the results.

  • IBM WebFacing Tool System Conversion

    This service offering is a natural follow-up to the IBM WebFacing Tool Conversion Proof of Concept. This offering varies in duration based on the size and complexity of your application. A proposal is developed and, once accepted, the entire application is converted to a Web application. This offering is performed onsite. The consultant teaches your staff how to use IBM WebSphere® Development Studio Client for iSeries to create and manage your Web development project based on your iSeries data and applications. Through a mentored workshop and a proof of concept, your staff has the opportunity to learn WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries and apply this knowledge to create and deploy a Web application into your iSeries environment.
