Newlook Server

Easily turn your existing IBM i applications into new Web and mobile UIs

Provide access to your IBM i applications anywhere, anytime.

Employees, partners and customers need access to critical enterprise applications even when they can’t get to the office. Newlook Server lets you easily provide access to IBM i applications from any device that supports a browser, including mobile devices. Newlook Server supports composite applications and generates HTML5 zero deployment user interfaces. It lets you provide anywhere-anytime access to your IBM i applications, without extra development effort.

Easily create multi-channel UIs

Your internal resources require the performance, functionality and integration provided by smart clients. But your business partners and customers may need thin client access; mobile users are different. Newlook Server includes a complete UI framework that lets you easily deliver applications anywhere-anytime via any channel with the client type best suited to each user.

Support your enterprise applications

Newlook Server in conjunction with Newlook Developer makes specific functions of your application available via the web. From embedding application functions in your website to integrating different apps under one UI, Newlook Server serves thousands of users simultaneously and supports your enterprise applications into the future.

Re-use existing apps with no changes

A single dynamic repository can support the multi-channel requirements of internal users, external users (partners and customers) and mobile users. With Newlook Server, you have the ability to deliver the most appropriate UI style without having to make changes to the existing IBM i applications.

Dynamically generate pure web-based UIs

Newlook Server delivers pure web-based UIs directly to your customers, employees and business partners. Zero deployment UIs are best suited for external users like partners and customers. They support popular browsers, and can be accessed on IOS, Android, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, Linux, Mac or Windows.

Mobile-enable IBM i applications

Make IBM i applications look and feel right on any mobile device. Your IBM I applications will not just work on any mobile platform, they will be automatically optimized to deliver the mobile experience that your users expect.
