This month, we will take on the third of the language-oriented APIs: the Natural Language Understanding module. What does this one do?
By Dave Shirey
Last month, we looked at the Natural Language Classifier, which offers a way to look at a piece of text and determine not so much the tone of the section but rather its intent: What is the text really about? What are the core issues it reveals?
Before that, we investigated the Language Translator, which translates written text to and from English, French, German, and a multitude of other languages.
Speaking and consulting engagements took Carol around the world—literally. Read about what she learned.
By Carol Woodbury
Recently, I had consulting engagements in both Singapore and Sydney, and then I was speaking at a conference in London. Rather than make three separate trips, I strung them all together and literally flew around the world in three weeks. All activities were IBM i–related, and I found some interesting differences in each location and some things that were the same, regardless of where I was. Let’s start with the differences.
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.
