It's not a new topic for us, but it's still a top concer--both for us personally and in the IBM i community. Who will improve, modernize and maintain the applications that have been running so many businesses so well for so many years?

Along with the V7.3 announcements, you may have noticed that IBM emphasized that there were going to be a number of social media initiatives around the platform over the coming months.

The IBM i 7.3 announcement may seem to have arrived a little earlier than expected. The interval between 7.1 and 7.2 was four years so you may not have been expecting a new release just yet. So for you RPG developers out there, the question is: What’s in 7.3 for me?

It's that time of year so we thought we'd share a few of our work-related resolutions with our readers.

OK - here we are back again with the answers to the RPG IV Trivia questions we posed in our last blog.
Posted: December 31, 2015 |
Back in April we blogged about RPG IV's 21st birthday. Subsequently we celebrated with birthday cake, champagne, and party favors at the RPG & DB2 Summit in October. During that celebration we posed a number of RPG IV trivia questions to the attendees. Since it is one of our family traditions to play silly trivia games at Christmas we thought we'd pose those questions to our readers! We often enjoy frustrating ourselves trying to answer the Tuesday Trivia questions from Ken Jennings's (big Jeopardy winner until Watson came along…)

Earlier we blogged about the value/cost equation of RDi. It seems that great minds think alike because Charlie Guarino blogged on a similar topic recently as well. Charlie took a very different approach by putting some actual ROI figures in place to help make the case for RDi's value.

We hear a lot of comments/complaints about the cost of purchasing licenses for RDi. We hear it in face-to-face conversations at conferences, on forums and mailing lists, LinkedIn discussions, blog comments and most recently as a comment on our EXTRA article about RDi. So we decided that it may be a good time to devote some blog space to our take on that subject.

Because we have now arrived at a point in time where even the movie Back to the Future
all happened in the past, it seems appropriate that we should talk about the future.
