What is CloudServices24x7?

CloudServices24x7 is a fictitious company created by Jim Buck and WMCPA to support the material included with his Programming in ILE RPG book. At the 2016 WMCPA conference the Legacy IBM i system used in the materials of that book were used as a UI Modernization challenge. The Common User Group then picked it up and used it at their Conferences where they created a special IBM i Legacy System UI Modernization Education track.

Modernization vendors were given the same set of IBM i programs, files, and 5250 Green-screen UI with the task of using their tools during a 75-minute session to create a modernized system. Attendees were able to see live how each vendor approached the same problem. Surround crushed it of course!
