Welcom to i-Series World

by dcarpenter In reply to Dave's i-series World

I intend to blog about various projects I am working on with regard to
the IBM i-series mid-range computer.  The i-Series doesn't get
much ink.  It is a little-known secret.  I have based my IT
career thus far on the i-Series, and the AS/400 before that.<br />
<br />
I began back in 1989 with my first AS/400 model B35.  Just this
year I have been responsible for the installation of a new i-Series
Model 520.<br />
<br />
We, here at Murray City Corp, have been pleased to be on this
platform.  We use it primarily for our financials, and city
government applications.  We use government applications by <a href="">Sungard- HTE</a><br />
<br />
Over the years, we have made our own modifications to the HTE product,
as well as some in-house enhancements that work along side HTE
aplications.<br />
<br />
We still maintain some home-grown applications outside of HTE.<br />
<br />
Of course with today's multiple platform-multiple server environment,
we have applications running on other platforms as well, including
Windows, Unix, Linux.  Many different databases are also used,
from DB2, to Oracle, Informix, etc.  <br />
<br />
As for me, I specialize in i-Series applications and support.  I
write new applications, maintain old ones, and modify HTE applications
as needed.  <br />
<br />
We are also in the process of making some of our applications, or parts
of applications available on the web.  Our tool of choice is <a href="">Websmart</a>, by BCD Software.<br />
<br />
I will post about programming tips and discoveries on i-Series related projects on this blog.<br />
