IBM i Application Development Strategy and Update

The world of application Development is evolving very quickly. New tools, new technologies, and new languages are coming forward at an incredible rate. IBM i developers are uniquely positioned to take advantage of the new advancements while capitalizing on their existing investments. This session will review some of the hottest industry trends and the latest announcements from IBM and look at how they all tie together.

CL Enhancements - Past, Present and Future

IBM i Control Language (CL) has long been used as a language for both operations and job control. In the most recent releases of IBM i (V5R3, V5R4, 6.1 and 7.1) IBM has delivered many of the hoped for and long requested enhancements to the CL for both environments. Enhancements include new commands as well as new extensions to existing commands. What are these new features and functions? How can they be used? This session will answer those questions and more!


Managing IBM i from your browser using the built-in Director Navigator

Introduced in v6r1, Director Navigator is as close to you as your nearest web browser. Built-in to the IBM i OS, it provides hundreds of system management tasks to help you manage your system. Its capabilities are further expanded with plug-ins that get installed automatically when you add products such as BRMS, Omnifind, Advanced Job Scheduler or PowerHA. This session explores the many aspects of Director Navigator and how you can leverage it in your environment.

Moving from DDS to SQL

One of the main topics in ‘application modernization’ is taking advantage of DB2’s SQL technology to replace DDS and native IO. In this session, we'll compare the SQL and native IBM i interfaces for DB2 for i. In addition, we'll discuss methodologies for moving to SQL in a seamless manner. By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
• Understand the differences between SQL & DDS objects.
• Be able to move business logic into DB2 instead of writing application code, and understand the advantages.
• Understand the performance differences between SQL & Native I/ O programming interfaces.
• Have a better understanding of where and when modernization would be right for their organization.
