LEGACY SYSTEM’S BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGES

Legacy systems such as iSeries / AS400 are slowing business agility


Difficult to link iSeries / AS400 to other modern systems

The IT landscape and digital ecosystem is evolving at a fast pace


Inability of iSeries / AS400 systems to co-exist with the modern and open API based Enterprise IT landscape

Competition is increasing with the rise of Fintech firms


Inability to extend to the digital eco-system

Greater need for modern,inter-linked systems


Clunky user interfaces, inefficient user experience

WHY JELLYFISH?

Jellyfish rapidly and intelligently modernises by integrating with iSeries / AS400 Systems legacy transaction systems
eliminating integration time and effort required for new implementations
It automatically creates smart user interfaces for the modernised services

Speed
  • Rapid integration with the iSeries / AS400 system for any new implementation, removing the effort and time required to do so completely
  • Microservices and Web services architecture ready
Efficiency
  • Replacement of iSeries / AS400 green screens with automatically generated smart user interfaces
  • Generate UIs with any Web service
  • Aggregation and disaggregation of screens gives better User Experience
Flexibility
  • Works with standard iSeries / AS400 applications, including:
  • Legacy Transaction Systems
  • Home-grown Legacy System
  • ex-CSC / DXC Insurance apps

Developed in Candela Labs’ R&D Centre in conjunction with
ex-CSC / DXC and iSeries / AS400 architects

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Key Features


Smart UI with intuitive labels and fields

Pick list with replication of values from iSeries / AS400

Maker checker with audit trail

Validation for the datatypes such as numbers, strings, and dates

Generates SOAP based services

Includes generation of subfile equivalent screens

Feature Benefits

Jellyfish 2.0 enables rapid digital enablement

Generates a web service in under
2 minutes significantly reducing the time and effort needed to integrate with iSeries / AS400 systems

Smart modern UIs that replicate iSeries / AS400 screen labels and therefore reduce upskilling time

JELLYFISH - HOW IT WORKS

Jellyfish automates the development process through intelligent recording of transactions, resulting in the automatic generation of Smart User Interfaces and APIs

Jellyfish accelerates modernisation of iSeries / AS400 legacy systems by automating core elements of the development process, bringing down time and costs significantly.

Jellyfish achieves the above through a mechanism that involves the recording of functionalities that need to be modernised, followed by the automatic generation of web services, which are then used for the automatic creation of smart user interfaces.

JELLYFISH ARCHITECTURE

The Jellyfish platform consists of two core modules

Using the Service Designer, a collection of iSeries / AS400 based application screens are recorded. Based on the recorded screen collections, service definitions are generated and exposed as SOAP and RESTful services. These services are then deployed as microservices on Docker containers. By virtue of using Docker and microservices, individual services can be scaled and maintained separately using components such as Docker swarm, which can dynamically scale selected services as per the business need.

The UI Designer is used to automatically generate modern responsive smart user interfaces based on the earlier recorded service definitions. The designer is powered by modern web technologies such as HTML5, AngularJS and CSS3 to produce rich, interactive, digital user experiences.

The Jellyfish Runtime also consists of two components, the Jellyfish Service Runtime and Jellyfish UI Runtime. The Jellyfish Service Runtime consists of SOAP and RESTful (JSON based) services based on a microservices architecture powered by Docker and Docker swarm. They help in providing high agility and dynamic scalability. The Jellyfish UI runtime is responsible for powering dynamic digital user experiences using a similar microservices architecture as described above.
