If you want your printed documents to look good, you have to work at it a little bit.

Written by Kurt Schroeder

I grew up in rural Wisconsin. The bus ride to my school took an hour, and if I had already done my homework, I would spend that ride gazing out the window. I knew every little hill, every corner and turn of the road. I could anticipate every bump and even knew the best places to watch for deer walking in their favorite cornfield.

Technology Focus: Mobile Application Development Tools PDF Print E-mail

Building mobile-device version of server apps isn't so much about what High-Level Language is best to do the job. It's more about what an enterprise's entire strategy for mobile apps is.

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

 

If you thought the Mac vs. PC religious wars were amusing, you've gotta love the philosophical split that's grown up the past several years around building mobile-device apps that provide access to software running on servers, including IBM i.

 

Essentially, the debate is about whether it's best to use HTML5 to build Web-friendly versions of server apps that are accessible by a wide variety of mobile devices, to build apps native to each mobile device even though it's more work for developers to tailor an app to each type, or to follow the Third Way crowd, which advocates building hybrid apps that offer features of both philosophies.

Technology Focus: Content Management Isn't Just About What's in Your Docs Anymore PDF Print E-mail

But for most IBM i users, the emphasis on document content is hard to escape if you're looking at apps that run directly on the i.

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

Content management as a product type across IT in general is conceptually divisible into two main categories: document content management and Web content management. When it comes to focusing on that product type more specifically in the IBM i market, though, content management takes on a more sharply document-centric tone.

How do you determine whether your maintenance agreement includes everything you'll need?

Written by Halcyon Software

Editor's note: This article introduces the white paper "Getting Maximum Value from Your Software Maintenance Agreement" available free from the MC White Paper Center.

Most businesses invest in software and protect that investment with a maintenance agreement from the software vendor. Most IT managers must question at one time or another what exactly they're getting for their money from a software maintenance agreement.

Technology Focus: Should You Do HA/DR in the Cloud or In-House? PDF Print E-mail

In the long run, it boils down to whether you prefer convenience or control.

 

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

 

It seems to be inarguable anymore whether or not an enterprise of any size needs a high availability and disaster recovery (HA/DR, also often called business continuity (BC)) plan in place. The sticking point is more along the lines of how much time and money any business concern wants to invest in the process. Particularly in the cases of enterprises that have never experienced any significant downtime or downtime consequences, or that remain convinced the stability of IBM i servers is not just legendary but permanent, it can be challenging to set aside money, personnel, and systems time to prepare for a "just in case" scenario. The upshot is that it's something that has to be done, if only to avoid how awful the consequences might be if you don't.
