1996 through 2004
AItech Research started in 1996 and presented their flagship product AI Portfolio Suite, a suite of system management and programming tools for IBM systems. The suite included change management, impact analysis, and post-remediation audit tools; program and file documentation utilities; ERP version upgrade utility; and automated tools for archiving and retrieving unused and obsolete objects and associated source code. The suite also includes AI Secure Pro, a set of user security audit reports.
The underlying engine was developed by AItech and built creating a data repository (similar in scope of a web crawler but searches customer file systems and programming code). The suite employed artificial intelligence (the AI in AItech) and used such techniques as:
RPG Specific Code Identification techniques based on code version
Other techniques using looping and false hit elimination, etcetera.
AItech Research sold products and service throughout the US and was a member of Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) is a leading industry trade group for information technology companies. The Association’s membership contains most all of the world’s major ICT firms and accounts for over 90% of ICT goods and services sold in North America.
