Latest Case Study

Leading international insurance company in Cyprus

Custom training in core IBM i development skills delivered via 
Nemo iAcademy

The Case

Our client runs a core insurance application on the IBM i platform using Cobol, RPG and CL programs. Staff attrition over time and the lack of IBM I platform experience in the marketplace has led to the need to hire less experienced staff who require additional knowledge before becoming effective.

“ We simply cannot find cost-effective new recruits with the skills profile required to support our mission-critical applications. “

The Solution

Nemo IT Solutions undertook the responsibility to design tailored training sessions covering the following topics:

  • Data Description Specification (DDS) for:

    • Physical/Logical Files

    • Display Files

    • Printer Files (RLU)

  • RPG IV / ILE RPG programing including:

    • SQLRPG and Free format RPG

    • System functions

    • Binding Directories, Modules and Service programs

    • Advanced compiling options and Debugging

  • CL programming including:

    • CL ILE (CLLE)

    • SQL statements using CLLE programs


Hands on training based on real life examples provided by the client.

Upon completion of the training, all new recruits were able to address typical support requirements without external assistance.

“ You are a great trainer that knows very well your area of expertise.
The areas we covered were thorough, organized, and detailed.
You provided great knowledge with very good examples and hands-on programming training that made our understanding very clear
