The weak link in virtually every IBM i RPG application is the green user interface. For years, now, band aids and half-measures have been used to try to fix the problem. But no one solution has really solved the problem appropriately. That’s where ASNA Wings®comes in. ASNA Wings lets you easily create an alternative browser-based user interface for your RPG programs. Wings doesn’t require invasive changes to your RPG and includes a browser-based emulator for use with non-enhanced displays.

Book Review: DB2 9.7 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows Database Administration (Exam 541)

This book, written by the creator of the certification exam, reveals exactly what you'll need to know to prep for the test.

A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure of working with Roger Sanders on the creation of a couple of DB2 certification exams. During the exam creation process, I was impressed by the deep knowledge and thoroughness that Roger brought to the process. As I made my way through this certification book, I found the same qualities coming through the pages time and time again as Roger reviews the various aspects of database administration for the DB2 9.7 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows (LUW) product.

IBM Flex System Manager Takes System Management Tools to New Heights

Advanced system management technology is arriving just in time to fill a void created by retiring IBM i system administrators.

The promise of true autonomic computing systems may soon be within reach if IBM's Flex System Manager appliance lives up to its promise of optimizing all aspects of controlling system workloads and resources. As far as many IBM i shops are concerned, the device couldn't have come at a better time.
