Green screen modernization has never been so easy!

Dynamic recognition for better maintainability
When considering modernization, a screen-by-screen approach can seem like the “quick and simple” fix; but when you have to build quality UIs for many hundreds of screens and then maintain and update them, you realize this approach can mean a lot more work.

Newlook’s dynamic recognition engine makes modernization simple and effective, allowing you to perform structural changes to your application and still get great UIs effortlessly. This is the smart way to modernize for sustainable maintainability and to build for your future.

Multi-platform integration
We all love the IBM i. For many of us, however, it’s often not the only platform we have to work with.
Newlook integrates and extends your IBM i applications to work seamlessly with other platforms, such as web, desktop, mobile, Windows, Unix and Mainframe.
 
Unified development environment
Working in a single development environment makes it easier to manage and enhance your applications, providing predictable, high-quality results every time.
 
Smart client or thin client, you choose
With a single development effort, you can deploy smart and thin clients allowing you to take advantage of all the rich features you use in your 5250 screens today. 

Smart
While browsers offer the dream of zero client installations, they don’t always support all IBM i emulator functionalities. When modernizing to web, users may require speed, keyboard buffering and type ahead to remain as productive as they were on the IBM i.
 
With tight desktop integration, strong keyboard compatibility and the power to have multiple sessions talk to each other, Newlook Smartclient is the best option for emulator replacement with business users.
 
Thin
Newlook delivers a modern user interface that looks great across all browsers and respects emerging web standards such as HTML5 and CSS3.

"As a developer, how do you use all that business code that's maybe 20 years old? And how do you take that and use it in a modern application without re-writing? In a modern environment like the one we got with Newlook, whether it's a web application or a windows user interface, you can re-Challengeruse the business logic.
How fantastic is that?!
