Original Software, the global provider of software quality technology, has today announced the first low-cost, super-fast HTML5 emulator for every IBM i user. Green screen applications can be accessed from PCs, Apple Macs, tablets, smart phones and any device that supports a browser.

Colin Armitage, CEO of Original Software explains: “Companies are under great pressure to give field and other remote staff access to the core business applications. Over time this challenge will be met by investment in new applications and platforms but for many companies the IBM i remains a critical platform and why shouldn’t users access it on the road or in meetings without lugging a PC around?”

When asked why Original Software, a company known for its market-defining quality management and testing solutions, was making the HTML5 Emulator available Armitage responded, “We have many customers who still rely on the IBM i to run their core applications and with IBM pulling back from Client Access, we want to offer the market a fully testable, modern solution to access their green screen applications. A stable emulator is essential for successful green screen test automation and that’s where we win”.

The emulator will be free during a two month beta program and then available for $999 annual subscription covering unlimited users. Original Software is looking for the maximum number of users for the beta program to ensure the released product is exposed to the widest possible range of applications and devices.

Everyone who signs up for the beta program and gives feedback will qualify for one free license subscription for a year.
