I've been working with a user on replacing their current web store with one that actually integrates with their System i POS system. Their old one printed an order form off, and they had to pick up the printer output, manually check inventory, grab it, complete the order, then notify the customer. If anything went wrong, they had to notify the customer. It was all asynchronous, which is not what most customers expect from a web transaction.

Many customers with green-screen applications struggle with integrating these systems with a web store.  The challenges are daunting and in some cases have caused customers to shelve these initiatives.  In this series of articles, we will look at the steps and decisions required in order to build out this kind of solution without breaking the budget, and within a reasonable timeframe.

I've been on Twitter for over a month, now, and I think I'm only now starting to "get" it. I've been lurking, looking, and seldom tweeting at first, but now I'm starting to get the idea of some of what I can do with it and what it can do for me

Recently we had a customer with a large amount of data on an AS/400 on optical drives. They had an application on the AS/400 that would let them read and process this data so that they could view historical information. They had migrated their application to another system, but compliance regulations (and collections) required them to retain access to their historical data.

Recently, we had a call from a company. They were switching small doctor's offices from a competitor's old DOS-based package to their new Microsoft package that used SQL Server or MS Access and Win Forms to provide an application for these clinics and doctors. The old application did not include source code, and the original vendor appeared to have gone out of business (or was uncooperative with the customer trying to move away from them). The real problem was that the version of the database that they were using was one that was over 20 years old!

This is an example of how a customer thought outside the box to solve a problem.
