What you can do with Presto

Modern Web GUI

Keep your IBM i relevant in the eyes of end users, management and clients by giving your green screens a modern web GUI.

Create improvements icon

New Functionality

Make users more productive by adding drop down boxes, tabs, datepickers, images, charts and more to your web-enabled screens.

Mobile icon

Mobile Access

Access all of your web-enabled green screens internally or remotely from iPads, iPhones, and other tablets and smartphones.


Presto is a game changer. Out of the box, Presto converted our existing applications and OS screens into web applications that we can use on mobile devices, all without requiring us to change any code. I'm a 25+ year IBM i (RPG) developer but learning this tool was simple with a minimal learning curve. In my opinion, Presto should be shipped with every IBM i sold."

Why Use Presto?

Finishing flag

Immediate Results

All of your green screens are instantly accessible as modern web pages. Presto intercepts the 5250 datastream and transforms it into web pages on the fly.

Give apps a modern look

No Code Changes

You don't need to make any changes to your RPG (II - IV), COBOL or DDS source (no source or recompiling required). Your proven code is left untouched and your green screens are still available to users who prefer them.

Improve Look and Functionality

Enhance your screens by using the Visual Editor to add new UI elements like drop down boxes. You can also edit the underlying HTML and extend screens beyond the 5250 datastream with Presto's SQL query feature.

Your staff

IBM i Programmers Succeed

Programmers without HTML experience are productive right away using the Visual Editor to enhance screens.

WYSIWYG

User Satisfaction and Productivity

Users will love the more visually appealing and intuitive screens. Web UI elements like datepickers make it easier to enter data and reduce training costs.

Easy Deployment and Access

Your IT staff saves time because end users only need a browser to access the screens internally or remotely from PCs, Macs or mobile devices. No ActiveX, Windows Servers, WebSphere, 5250 emulators or other software are required.

Runs in a browser. No WebSphere needed.

Integrated Suite

Presto is available as a standalone solution or as part of BCD's modernization suite that includes WebSmart (new web app development), Clover Query (web-based reports), Catapult (report distribution) and Nexus Portal.
