Programmers and IT administrators nevertheless are working to implement services, and SOA, one step at a time where it makes sense.
Halcyon Software introduced a trio of new software products at COMMON including a new cross-platform reporting solution that allows for easy report creation, a new version of its spool file manager that indexes files for fast retrieval, and an updated GUI enterprise console manager for IBM i, AIX, and Windows that syncs with a new free iPhone app for system management on the go.
