Our client is the premiere rental equipment company in North America, which offers a highly diversified product mix including general construction equipment, industrial tools, pumps, power generation, climate control & HVAC, shoring solutions, scaffolding, and remediation & restoration equipment.


Our client uses IBM iSeries for hosting their business applications and database. Most of the business logic for reservations, exchanges, returns, and contracts are written in RPG programs and the database used for business applications is Db2.

As part of the digital transformation initiative, our client opted to implement an Application Programming Interface (API) Management Solution. The solution required a robust architecture to address their need while leveraging the existing iSeries legacy platform as their business solution.

Our client partnered with XTIVIA to provide the technical guidance and solution for their digital transformation initiative.


XTIVIA partnered with their client to create an API management solution that provides the best services in the industry by connecting partners and customers.

API Initiative Proposed Architecture

XTIVIA reviewed and analyzed the available artifacts and gathered the information on the as-is architecture and proposed the following solution:

• Implement the PCML Service layer between the front-end API services and back-end iSeries business services.

• Implement the Data Service layer between the front-end API services and back-end iSeries DB2 services.


XTIVIA’s proposed architecture and implementation helped our client to realize their digital transformation initiative quickly while leveraging the existing business applications. Our client is able to call the back-end business logic using the standard REST protocols, which help connect internal and external clients seamlessly.
