Visual LANSA provides an environment for building responsive Web applications on the IBMi without first mastering half-a-dozen different Web languages and technologies!
There are many Web development tools available on the market today, so why choose LANSA? Visual LANSA is not simply a page layout tool, but a complete web development methodology and tool set. The reasons for choosing LANSA include:
• Develop line-of-business Web apps without writing a single line of HTML, JavaScript or CSS code. None. Ever. LANSA generates all code for you.
• One simple programming language for both the server and the client, instead of using a slew of complex, flavour-of-the-day tools and technologies.
• Deliver Web apps that support multiple device types and sizes, including smart phones, tablets, desktops and laptops; all rendered from the same code.
• Reduce the burden of maintaining your constantly evolving business apps.

Northdoor plc is a Platinum level IBM Business Partner with Speciality status for both IBM Power Systems and IBM Storage product families. Building on more than 25 years of experience in delivering business solutions, we take pride in our ability to help companies deploy efficient infrastructure solutions that adapt to changing needs. 

Recognised by IBM as a Centre of Technical Excellence for IBM Hardware, Northdoor has deep skills in IBM AIX, IBM i and Linux for IBM Power Systems. We are also experts in storage sizing and configuration, and in providing high-availability and business continuity solutions based on IBM PowerHA.  

As the supplier of the very first POWER8 processor-based servers in Europe, Northdoor remains at the cutting-edge of Power Systems solutions. In that particular case, we helped our client – a famous high-street retailer – to deliver improved service levels using half the cores of the previous system and just 20 percent of the data centre floorspace. The client in question has also achieved more than 150 percent return on investment, and reduced the carbon footprint of the service by 60 percent.
For companies that are looking to consolidate and update their existing Power Systems landscapes, Northdoor offers best-practice approaches around sizing, procurement, deployment and ongoing support. For companies aiming to extend their existing Power Systems landscapes – for example, by introducing high-availability solutions or by adding external storage – our extensive experience helps reduce risk and accelerate the transition. 

At Northdoor, we appreciate that selecting, deploying and supporting new technology can be daunting – especially in the case of specialised enterprise technology like IBM Power Systems. Our consultants cut through the jargon to ensure that our solutions meet your specific business requirements, today and into the future. As part of our long-term commitment to our clients’ success, we can also provide training for IT operations staff, and we can design tailormade support agreements backed by rigorous SLAs to ensure that your business can access deeper skills whenever needed. 

Our robust project methodology, developed over decades of experience in complex IT projects, helps ensure on-time delivery within budget. For Northdoor, the careful planning and execution of a successful migration is at least as important as designing the appropriate infrastructure.
