Walk through a real-world scenario of how Aaron Bartell approaches changes to open-source projects.
Written by Aaron Bartell
In a recent blog post, Jesse Gorzinski, Business Architect - Open Source on IBM i, focused on the "Power of Community." The community is the only way open source not only survives but thrives. There's a lot of activity in IBM i open source right now, and I hope that trend continues.
One aspect that kept me from originally participating with open source is I didn't know how to interoperate with the community and participate in changing code repositories. This article documents a real-world scenario.
All Data and Software Resides on the IBM i: Everything is centralized and secure.
Graphical Designer: Design labels in minutes.
Integrate and Print with Existing Apps: Call from RPG, COBOL, CLP and JAVA programs.
Compliance Labels Provided: Extensive library of predesigned label templates.
Supply Chain Solution: Easily integrated into any IBM i ERP or WMS solution.

PHP 7.0 is here. Hurray! For the IBM i, that is. It took a while, but now it’s a fact. Read all about it.
Written by Dave Shirey
Almost two years ago, I did a TechTip on PHP 7.0 and what it had to offer when it was first released by Zend. In fact, I did two of them. At that time, the word on the street was that it would be available for the i within a few months of that date (July 2015). But it took a bit longer than anyone expected. It took, in fact until just a few weeks ago. But now, finally, the latest release of PHP is available for the IBM i community to use and abuse. And, in fact, it took so long that what is now available to the i is not just PHP 7.0, but PHP 7.1.
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.
