p>On the first day of Christmas, my IBM i asked of me…
for a tool to help productivity
In 2013, IT staff is being asked to do more with less. This is not headline news. IT is always being asked to do more with less. The difference is that the “more” is being linked to business outcomes, and not just infrastructure. The more IT can provide software efficiency tools that help the company across departments be more agile, the more IT is lining up with the CIO.
On the second day of Christmas, my AS/400 asked of me….
2 birthday parties, and a tool to help productivity
Make that dozens of birthday parties for the AS/400 which celebrated its 25th birthday this year. For more than a quarter of a century now, the AS/400 has been a reliable and trusted power system to handle core applications for companies around the world.
On the third day of Christmas, my iSeries asked of me…
3 free upgrades, 2 birthday parties, and a tool to help productivity
Upgrading iSeries or any IBM servers to new application versions can be very tedious if you have to handle multiple custom patches. So if you’ve programmed custom software solutions, there can be a lot of extra work getting them ready to work with the new version. Why not make it easy on yourself and get cost-effective software that is supported for free to be compliant with all new application versions?
On the fourth day of Christmas, my System i asked of me…
4 Disaster plans, 3 free upgrades, 2 birthday parties, and a tool to help productivity
Message monitoring software keeps a watchful eye on error messages so that even when IT staff is not on duty, the messages are logged and an email and/or text message will be sent so that you can either get ahead of a disaster or respond quickly.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my Power System asked of me…
5 BRAND NEW NAMES, 4 Disaster plans, 3 free upgrades, 2 birthday parties, and a tool to help productivity
In my Thanksgiving blog, I linked to an article that proposed brand controversy be put to an end by naming all IBM Power Systems….Bruce. Personally, I think the name Richard has a nice ring.
