Visual LANSA is the only Integrated Development Environment (IDE) you will ever need for rapid application development of Windows, Web and System i (iSeries and AS/400) applications.

No other mainstream rapid application development tool is so open and flexible, enabling you to write code that runs free of the underlying operating system, database technology or display style. With technology fads passing at an alarming rate, and a looming technical skills crisis in most major economies, it makes good business sense to invest in the one agile development tool that is truly future-proof – Visual LANSA.

Focus on your business needs, not technology

The range of skills that today’s software developer must have can be onerous and expensive for their employer to maintain.

Visual LANSA enables developers to transcend the technology stack and stay focused on the business requirements. It’s common that technology-oriented developers love to play with newfangled stuff – often at their employer’s expense – and usually in pursuit of enhancing their own agendas. By contrast, Visual LANSA appeals to those developers – and their managers - who prefer to avoid the technology quagmire so they can deliver the greatest business impact in the shortest possible time.
