Accessing your IBM i today and into the future

The devices we use to do our job continue to change at a rapid pace. From the latest in PC technology with Windows, Mac and Linux to tablets and mobile devices. All of these are a part of our day to day existence now. We no longer only have a single device for everything. Being able to access your IBM i on any of these devices is a key part to the future success of our platform. This session will examine the options moving forward. We will look at the Access Client Solutions support, what it offers, how to get it, the very latest support for dealing with database on IBM i (Run SQL Scripts & Visual Explain). I may have a slide or 2 but for most of this we will actually fire up ACS and do live Demos to show you all the latest features. We will also take a look at our iAccess for Web Mobile solution. The live demo for this product is even better, bring your favorite Mobile device with you and you will get to play right along with me! Great way to see for yourself what is available from your mobile device.

Tim Rowe is the Business Architect for Application Development and Systems Management for the IBM i operating system. He spends his time working with customers and the IBM i development team making sure that our system continues to have the necessary support on continue to move our business into the future. In addition to living in Rochester MN, at times he has been found in many parts of the world working with our IBM i community on what is modernization and how can we get there.
