In the Wheelhouse: IBM i Access Client Solutions, Where Have You Been All My Life?

This week, I'll talk about the brand spanking new and overly awesome IBM i client offering and give you a lesson in risk management from Amazon's recent outage.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

IBM released its technology preview of IBM i Access Client Solutions last week. If you remember, I wrote a little teaser about it a few weeks ago. Not much has been written about it yet, so I'm going to break it down for you. If you're maintaining IBM i Access for Windows installations, then keep reading. You're going to like this.

Technology Focus: Automated Operations Products Are Continuing to Thrive

Automated operations software products enhance their utility, particularly in multiplatform environments.

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

It's been a truism in the general culture that the point of automation is to make life simpler and easier. When we look around us and see home thermostats and DVRs we can set with our smart phones, ATMs that dispense cash without help from a teller, and cars that can parallel park themselves, that idea seems self-evident.

Partner TechTip: Remember the IFS!

Eliminate IFS vulnerability and make security risks disappear.

robin tatamWritten by Robin Tatam

Ask any security professional which area of IBM i security is most often ignored and the response will likely be "the Integrated File System." Although it's been around since V3R1, the IFS remains a shrouded mystery that represents significant risk.
