For over 25 years, KFA Connect has worked closely with telecoms giant, Vodafone.
We’ve been managing their IBM i development, ensuring they always stay one step ahead of their competition in this fast-paced market.
To date, our design, development, test and application support teams have a staggering 250+ years’ experience of working on the IBM i system (also known over the years as AS400, i Series and IBM System i).
You can be confident that as an “IBM” Registered Business Partner, the KFA Connect team has the skills to develop, test and support your IBM i applications.
We have a team with a broad range of IBM i experience, we have senior developers who started their careers working on the S36 and trainee developers who started on the latest IBM i. This gives KFA the ability to be able to support systems written 20+ years ago and to develop new systems using the very latest programming methods.
Our Application Modernisation white paper highlights how out of date applications can be inflexible, difficult to change and costly to maintain – but critical to your business.

IBM i Design & Development
Successful solutions begin with great design. Our Business Analysts will work with you to ensure that your requirements are met rather than ours; and because we know IBM i, you won’t be subsidising expensive contractors since the experience is in-house.
We have been developing solutions for IBM mid-range platforms since 1988. Initially working on the IBM System/36, progressing through System/38, AS/400, and onto the current IBM i, and developing our skills and experience as our client base grew.
The majority of our development team have been with KFA Connect for over 10 years, and reflect that experience through the creation of innovative reliable solutions that fully utilise the Power System’s highly advanced technologies.
Our extensive IBM i development experience includes:
- RPG ILE
- MQ messaging
- XML development
IBM i eCommerce Integration
With extensive experience of eCommerce systems (e.g. Magento, Shopify, WooCommerce) we are uniquely positioned to integrate legacy IBM i solutions with your cutting-edge eCommerce site.
We can link your Magento site, provide real-time stock figures, import orders, keep your customers updated with timely progress reports and tracking information.
IBM i Integration
The IBM i has a well-founded reputation for reliability and performance but it can be difficult to integrate legacy applications running on the IBM i with other business applications.
We can help integrate these new systems into your business, linking them with IBM solutions, in fact, it’s our speciality. Previous IBM i integrations have included Magneto eCommerce, BI Reporting, Oracle eBusiness, Siebel and numerous warehouse management systems.
IBM i Software Testing
Quality underlines everything we do and with an ISTQB qualified QA department, we will ensure that any solution has been thoroughly tested and meets or exceeds your business requirements.
IBM i Support
Our support team can provide 24-hour support for your IBM i support applications. With agreed response times, monthly reports and a focus on customer satisfaction.
IBM i System Upgrades
Looking to upgrade your IBM i platform?
Upgrading means fewer problems with hardware and software compatibility and of course the older the system, the greater the risk of outage and failure.
Operating systems that are no longer supported by IBM are not SOX compliant.
We manage machine upgrades completely – ensuring a smooth transition and minimal disruption to our client’s customers.
The benefits will be seen straight away as newer systems are more efficient, costing less to both power and cool – making it better for the environment too!
