Tight, Fast, and Secure Access to IBM i Resources from .NET Applications
Unite Your .NET IBM i Applications
LANSA Open for .NET is a Visual Studio plugin designed to allow Windows developers to access IBM i (AS/400, iSeries) resources (including data and programs) directly within their .NET applications. It offers easy integration between IBM i and .NET.
Benefits of LANSA Open for .NET
Why Use LANSA Open for .NET? LANSA Open for .NET enables IT departments to safely open up their IBM i data and applications to a variety of internal and external .NET applications without risking security or data integrity to deliver a better customer experience to your employees.
.NET and IBM
Break down application silos and achieve a single version of the truth by enabling .NET and IBM i to work collaboratively to share real-time data, automate business processes, and eliminate synchronization between Windows and IBM i platforms.
Controlled Access to IBM i Data from .NET
Faster Transfer of Data and Information
LANSA Open for .NET implements native record-level access to Db2 data over an encrypted, secure connection. Using native record-level access means .NET applications can quickly work with large volumes of Db2 data by taking advantage of IBM i’s powerful data processing capabilities.
Tighter IBM i Security from .NET
LANSA Open for .NET’s runtime DLL encrypts and compresses data during transmission between the client and the server, protecting sensitive data from being compromised as it is sent down the wire, using industry- standard DES or Twofish.
Easier Resource Management of Dev Teams
Reduce the challenges of managing siloed development teams and multi-platform projects by sharing resources between mixed .NET, RPG, and COBOL development environments by reusing the same enterprise business logic, validation rules, and calculations.
Getting Started Is Fast and Easy
LANSA Open for .NET is easy to use and implement for .NET developers. The class library is shipped with ready-to-run samples in both the C# and VB.NET languages. There is almost no learning curve for .NET developers. No knowledge of IBM i, DB2, or LANSA is needed.
