In this second and final part of this short series about mobile app dev, let’s talk about grids and glyphicons.
By Jan Jorgensen
In a previous article, I covered how the grid system in Bootstrap works, so in order not to bore you I will try not to repeat myself.
The grid system in version 4 is still based on a maximum of 12 columns! But even though the grid system seems the same from version 3 to 4, something has changed under the hood. In Bootstrap 3, the grid system was based on floats, but that changed in Bootstrap 4; it is now based on flexbox.
Authority Collection was added to IBM i in V7R3. Carol discusses three practical applications of this powerful feature.
By Carol Woodbury
The new Authority Collection feature is very easy to use, but how a security administrator can use it might not be obvious. In this article, I discuss three scenarios and the way you’d use Authority Collection to solve each.
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.

Learn how to use MERGE to synchronize data between tables with just one SQL statement
by Rafael Victória-Pereira
Editor’s note: This article is excerpted from chapter 12 of SQL for IBM i: A Database Modernization Guide, by Rafael Victória-Pereira.
Often, we’re faced with the need to synchronize two tables, in such a way that the target table gets all the relevant information from the other one. For instance, imagine that you have an inventory table that receives daily updates from several stock movement tables. There are new entries to register (INSERT statements), but also item quantity fluctuations (UPDATE statements), which require separate processing. Naturally, you can also have some items disappearing from stock, and depending on how those situations are handled, these can be updates or actual deletes in the inventory table. With the MERGE statement, you can mash up those statements into a single one.
