Improve UDF performance with a new flavor of deterministic.
By Kent Milligan
After V5R3 was released, I wrote an article highlighting the use of the NOT FENCED and DETERMINISTIC options to improve the performance of User-Defined Functions (UDFs). Those are still great options to use to boost performance. However, more recently the IBM i 7.2 release extended the possible reach of the Deterministic option with a new flavor known as statement-level deterministic.
Digital transformation and application modernization are both never-ending cycles of continuous improvement. Whether a business wants to adopt the latest technologies, upgrade legacy applications, or improve the integration of various systems, modernization never stops.

In fact, there are quite a few drivers of modernization, and for businesses relying on the IBM i (previously known as IBM iSeries or IBM AS/400), the availability of human resources is quickly working its way to the number one spot.
Explore the main considerations you should be aware of before embarking on a (migration or modernization) project. Take a deeper dive into business motivations and factors that could potentially influence your decision to migrate or modernize your existing IT platform and its risks.
More than ever, there is a demand for IT to deliver innovation.
Your IBM i has been an essential part of your business operations for years. However, your organization may struggle to maintain the current system and implement new projects.
The thousands of customers we've worked with and surveyed state that expectations regarding the digital footprint and vision of the companyare not aligned with the current IT environment.
Have you been wondering about Node.js? Our free Node.js Webinar Series takes you from total beginner to creating a fully-functional IBM i Node.js business application.
Part 1 will teach you what Node.js is, why it's a great option for IBM i shops, and how to take advantage of the ecosystem surrounding Node.
In addition to background information, our Director of Product Development Scott Klement will demonstrate applications that take advantage of the Node Package Manager (npm).
Learn how businesses leverage Low-Code to continue to deliver value through digital transformation. Discover how the power of Low-Code is helping many businesses evolve their supply chain, increase ROI, and achieve more tangible results.

- Delivers 127 qubits on a single IBM quantum processor for the first time with breakthrough packaging technology
- New processor furthers IBM's industry-leading roadmaps for advancing the performance of its quantum systems
- Previews design for IBM Quantum System Two, a next generation quantum system to house future quantum processors
IBM today announced its new 127-quantum bit (qubit) 'Eagle' processor at the IBM Quantum Summit 2021, its annual event to showcase milestones in quantum hardware, software, and the growth of the quantum ecosystem. The 'Eagle' processor is a breakthrough in tapping into the massive computing potential of devices based on quantum physics. It heralds the point in hardware development where quantum circuits cannot be reliably simulated exactly on a classical computer. IBM also previewed plans for IBM Quantum System Two, the next generation of quantum systems.
