Articles from independent journalists giving their opinions on ARCAD solutions and developments,
and Press Releases covering significant ARCAD news and events
Of the world’s most visited websites this month, GitHub rates 59 and climbing. Not bad considering that GitHub’s appeal is limited to software developers, whereas the other popular sites like Google and Amazon have a planetary audience. Is software becoming as important as the written word?
The financial incentives instigating investors to back companies that create software and provide services to the IBM i community continue to raise eyebrows and elicit surprise among those unfamiliar with the innovation taking place in the so-called legacy netherworld.

ARCAD Software and Meridian Group International form global partnership to launch Release Management as a Service
New agreement allies leading DevOps solutions vendor with global equipment lessor and top provider of IT solutions, services and support.
Finding an IBM i software vendor in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is sort of like finding a four-leaf clover. It doesn’t happen very often and it feels like a lucky day when you do. Last week, ARCAD Software made it into the coveted quad in the Application Release Automation category.
Chavanod, France — Oct 24, 2017 – ARCAD Software today announced that it has been recognized in Gartner’s 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Application Release Automation” report for its DROPS solution.

Stockholm, Sweden, 30 May 2017 – ARCAD Software, leading vendor in DevOps and Modernization solutions for IBM i, today announced its partnership with Apper Systems AB, to support major expansion of ARCAD operations in the Nordic region.
One platform. One island. One epic story of survival. That may be over dramatizing the IBM i environment, but it makes a point about the dangers of single-platform thinking in a world that is multi-platform oriented. That thought occurred to me when I first heard that ARCAD Software, an IBM i vendor specializing in application development and DevOps, was partnering with GitHub, a collaboration-oriented software company focused on code sharing and reducing software delivery schedules.
ARCAD Forms Strategic Partnership with GitHub to offer Collaborative Application Development and DevOps on IBM i

ARCAD RPG Converter for IBM i, V1.1 and ARCAD Observer for IBM i, V1.1 strengthen support for developers of business applications
For IBM i shops that have been using change management software for years, DevOps looks very familiar. Both improve quality and lower risk. And both make use of a framework and collaborative achievements. The major distinction for DevOps is that the collaboration involves a much wider universe of contributors. It takes into account other IT platforms and blows up the individual siloes by integrating tools and processes. And it further integrates IT and business with incremental improvements and enhancements continuously tested and put into production.
