Offering a full software lifecycle service from concept to commissioning for PowerBuilder systems and applications, as well as protecting the existing investments and ensuring future value is achieved. Increasingly, a PowerBuilder application lifecycle starts at the Development phase, as many Agile approaches promote. Leveraging PowerBuilder's inherent rapid application development techniques, such as prototyping and proof of concepts, working software is quickly delivered to users.

Appeon’s continued support and enhancement of PowerBuilder has re-invigorated the position of PowerBuilder as a user-friendly application platform, that deploys working applications rapidly. Organisations are taking a fresh look at PowerBuilder as they upgrade their PowerBuilder technology stack to address the end of life of previous PowerBuilder versions. Web and mobile enablement as well as basic extensions are common bespoke activities.

OCS' PowerBuilder teams have a vast range of skills, experience and domain expertise used to collaborate in OCS' partnership based model to achieve the outcomes required quickly, effectively and efficiently, whilst building a knowledge base to aid future activities.


As with any software development project, testing is essential. OCS provides Manual and Automated testing services, using the same flexibility we provide with our PowerBuilder services. 

We work with several different testing tools, and we are official partners of Zeenyx:

Zeenyx® Software, Inc. is the creator of AscentialTest™, an enterprise level Test Management System that encompasses test planning, development, data management and execution. Our mission is to provide a testing solution where users build robust manual and automated tests from reusable components that are created without recording or scripting. Our patented ‘snapshot’ technology is the core of AscentialTest. By interacting with these graphical representations of the application under test, users build test steps by dragging and dropping objects in a graphical test editor. Actions are automatically generated. All the user has to do is provide the test data. Re-usable steps can be combined to form a multitude of tests that are as easy to maintain as they are to create. At Zeenyx, we believe that a test management solution should allow everyone on the team to participate in the development of manual and automated tests.
