Abstract:
See the New Navigator for i in action and learn what it is all about.

It is the perfect combination between DB2 for i Services and an HTTP server.

Do not be surprised if in the near future you will move away from 5250 emulation.
Is it that good, yes it is.

FREE WEBINAR FOR ALL

Dear Common Belgium members and all IBM i and Power enthusiasts,

COVID pandemic still challenges us but doesn't stop us. Common Belgium continues its mission of educating the IBM i community, and now through virtual sessions.

Attend to discover the gems from some Application Development and System Management experts. The 2 sessions will include, and not only, the following topics:
* How IBM i still fits in IBM's cloud and AI approach of Application Development - DevOps, Microservices, SQL ... and the list continues.
* What happened in Infrastructure and System Management after 7.4 was released - NVMe (the new internal disk proposition), Encryption (TLS 1.3 and DCM), Content assist and formatting of the SQL scripting (ACS), Query supervisor, Virtual tape, Scott’s favorite SQL services, to name a few.

 
For Common Belgium members, and where non-members are highly welcome - we will start with a small General Assembly, a short presentation on past and future, the financial results and board elections.

Just join us and continue learning.
The COMMON Belgium Board.
