In the third installment of this series, I want to talk about what has to happen from a company point of view for AI to make a grand entrance and succeed.
Mobile computing is rapidly maturing into a solid platform for delivering enterprise applications. Many IBM i shops today are realizing that integrating their IBM i with mobile applications is the fast path to improved business workflows, better customer relations, and more responsive business reporting. The ROI that mobile applications can produce for your business is substantial.
This ASNA whitepaper takes a look at mobile computing for the IBM i. It discusses the different ways mobile applications may be used within the enterprise and how ASNA products solve the challenges mobile presents. It also presents the case that you already have the mobile programming team your projects need: that team is your existing RPG development team!

The annual Profound Logic ‘State of IBM i Modernization Survey” takes a look at the trends and attitudes that shape the IBM i modernization market. We reached out to the IBM i community, and the response was outstanding: close to 800 people, nearly 300 more than last year, took the survey. This enthusiasm resulted in very interesting findings for how businesses plan to use and modernize the platform in the coming year.
As you read through each section of the survey, you will see our summary of the results and suggestions for the future. We hope the survey will help your business better understand what is possible for your IBM i platform in the coming year.

Do you have a formal plan for educating employees about ongoing IBM i and IT security threats?
by Carol Woodbury
This article is excerpted from IBM i Security Administration and Compliance: Second Edition, chapter 20.
A security awareness program is an official or recognized project, typically under the “jurisdiction” of the Chief Security Officer (CSO), that is created for the purpose of educating individuals such as the organization’s employees, contractors, vendors, and volunteers about the organization’s security policies. The education should explain how the policies relate to each individual, and it should be performed on an ongoing basis.
