"IBM i Modernization Engine for Lifecycle Integration (Merlin)"
by Alan Ashley, Presales Consultant for DevOps for IBMi, Arcad Software.

IBM i Modernization Engine for Lifecycle Integration (Merlin) is an application development and modernization framework designed to help clients move IBM i software forward and develop 'next gen' applications on IBM i.

Powered by IBM and ARCAD technology for IBM i, Merlin contains a set of container-based tools helping software developers to:
    • realize the value of a hybrid cloud, multi-platform DevOps implementation for IBM i
    • expose native IBM i functions as RESTful interface
    • automate an optimized ‘intelligent’ build and accelerated CI/CD cycle
    • bridge the ‘talent gap’ with browser-based IDE and CodeReady Workspaces familiar to those developers ‘new to IBM i’

About the Presenter:

Alan Ashley grew up on the AS400, through iSeries, and into the IBM i world. Started on a model B50 (where replacing a disk drive was a two-person lift) and now in the DevSecOps world showing that IBM i development fits right in with Agile and DevSecOps. Showing that one can move on from green screen and into a modern mode of development. After spending over two decades with IBM, Alan now helps Arcad Software in showing that DevSecOps on IBM i isn't all that scary.
