June 13, 2016—Sencha runs into the IBM i platform quite a bit during its dealings with Global 2000 companies, Mullarkey says. One of the goals of the partnership is to increase the awareness that tools such as Valence exist, that there is a path forward to modernize legacy apps.
“IBM i . . . has a huge worldwide footprint,” the Sencha VP says. “These platforms are everywhere. Customers love them, for very good reasons, and they want to preserve them, but they want to extend them.”
