ID fields are a powerful way to organize your data models, and SQL provides all the tools you need to take advantage of them.
By Joe Pluta
In my previous article, I talked about using two files to monitor the SQL activity on my system. One had the actual unique SQL data statements while the other held more-granular data for each statement: information about the jobs that used the statement, the user ID, the IP address, and so on. If I had that all in one table, then I'd be repeating some really large SQL statements over and over again. The idea instead was to create a unique ID field for each new SQL statement and track all the data using that ID as a key.
As promised in the previous article, let’s apply the multi-tier conceptual approach in a couple of architecture implementations.

IBM’s Steve Will talks AS/400, POWER9, IBM i 7.4, cloud, and everything in between
True or False: The IBM i operating system is just the AS/400 all over again. False! The AS/400 provided a solid foundation, but it has evolved over the years into the entirely new technology that we call IBM i.
The 2020 chapter in our journey from AS/400 to IBM i includes new cloud offerings, new Technology Refreshes, new customers, and a strong roadmap. How do these additions make the platform more powerful?
