SQL result sets are flat for joins. That makes it more complex to process both in business logic and UI. JoinJS to the rescue!
Written by Aaron Bartell
I am currently coding a Node.js project for a customer that uses the HapiJS web framework. We had the need to create a JSON result object from DB2 that conveyed a list of employees and their department associations and send it to the browser. In short, the SQL result set looked like the below.

A couple of articles ago, we looked at what an API was and even what Watson was, but we didn’t get into an example of the kinds of stuff Watson is mixed up in. Stand by to be amazed.
Written by Dave Shirey
In a previous TechTip, we started to get into what the new world of APIs allows us to do (interface complex applications, not just point functions, with your custom applications) and what Watson really is (a set of very fast processors running with a parallel architecture, DeepQA, to provide a new way to approach the question-and-answer application). But we didn’t talk about how you can get involved with that world.
Think only large organizations can afford and implement business intelligence (BI)? Think again.
Today, BI isn’t just for the big guys. Small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) can (and, indeed, do) deploy BI tools—and it doesn’t cost them a fortune. Here’s why: they choose a BI tool that’s the right size for their business. They gain the clear, actionable information they need to make sound business decisions. And, since the BI tool is scaled—in size and cost—to their needs, they achieve fast ROI.
Need help finding the right BI for your SMB? Start here.
You'll learn the must-haves for BI on IBM i at SMBs:
- Get BI without missing a beat by importing existing queries
- Give your SMB the ability to make better decisions
- Increase productivity with real-time data access
- Achieve fast ROI
Plus, you’ll see a demonstration of how Sequel Data Access makes BI for SMBs easy. Quick installation, simple setup, and easy data access mean you can start pulling reports from your IBM i within an hour.
