AI is Eating the World: How Fresche Uses AI

Fresche is leveraging AI to reshape the future of IBM i modernization

AI is eating the world, or so it feels like. In the context of AI, almost every aspect of our lives has undergone some form of reevaluation, and as a result, new processes and experiences continue to emerge. At Fresche, we’re not just witnesses to this phenomenon—we actively explore its implications to shape the future of IBM i modernization.   

Our focus spans three key areas: 

  • Integration of AI into our products 
  • Productivity benefits for our staff 
  • Greenfield research initiatives 

This brief overview is the first in a three-part series which will provide a glimpse into the potential of AI, how to use it, and what Fresche is doing with AI to deliver better solutions for our clients.

AI for Products  

With the integration of AI capabilities into a product, it’s essential to understand that AI is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Thus, for best results, it’s beneficial to analyze the specific problem a product addresses to pinpoint areas where AI can offer the most assistance. Then, we can optimize user experience and functionality where applicable.  

For example, in our X-Replay tool, AI takes center stage by seamlessly converting test cases from PHPUnit to Cypress. By tapping into the extensive knowledge stored in large language models, this process ensures swift and accurate conversion between testing frameworks, saving time and resources for developers.   

Moreover, in our X-Modernize tooling, AI plays a pivotal role in streamlining the transformation of legacy code into modern applications. Through real-time analysis of code and business logic, AI offers invaluable insights and recommendations, from removing dead comments to providing refactoring advice. This optimization process produces cleaner, more efficient codebases, empowering developers to innovate confidently.   

Additionally, we explore the capabilities of natural language processing (NLP) in our X-Analysis product. Our X-Analysis product collects enormous reservoirs of information about an application. Still, sometimes, you want to ask a specific question and get an answer, which is an area where AI can excel. It can understand the meaning of your question, and then it can ask X-Analysis to fetch the real data. By enabling intuitive interaction between users and the application, AI-driven NLP enhances user experience and productivity, ushering in a new era of seamless communication and information retrieval.

AI for Productivity  

Beyond product enhancement, AI has shown great potential to boost internal productivity and efficiency. Fresche developers benefit from cutting-edge tools like GitHub Copilot, which accelerates development, and provides intelligent code suggestions based on context and requirements. As a result, clients can experience shorter development cycles, quicker turnaround times for new features and updates, and ultimately, a better overall customer experience. 

Moreover, ChatGPT-4 helps diminish the learning curve for developers as they learn new technologies and workflows. ChatGPT-4 provides guidance on code optimization to assist with project management tasks, and AI utilities like Grammarly and image generation tools streamline various aspects of our ecosystem, empowering teams to achieve more in less time.  

Greenfield Research Initiatives 

Our commitment to innovation extends to ongoing research initiatives in AI. Our investment in local hardware infrastructure helps developers iterate faster and empowers them with the computational resources needed for AI experimentation and exploration.  

Furthermore, we continuously evaluate the different AI models that continue to evolve, such as Claude, Gemini, and ChatGPT, staying at the forefront of technological advancements and ensuring our solutions remain cutting-edge and relevant.  

We explore the intricacies of model evaluation, fine-tuning, and integration into our workflows. We assess the benefits of open-source versus closed-source models and optimize AI agent integration, showcases a dedication to maximizing the value AI brings to our organization and unlocking new possibilities for innovation and growth. 

Innovate for Tomorrow 

AI isn’t just a tool—it’s a catalyst for innovation that directly impacts our clients. By embracing AI in our products and workflows, we redefine what’s possible and shape a smarter, more connected future.
