5:00 Session 1: My Emulator is Better than Yours

  • Speaker: Tim Rowe (IBM Rochester)

  • Abstract: The IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS) 5250 Emulator has shown itself to be very capable, providing several unique features not available with the IBM i Access for Windows PC5250 it was modeled after.

    Version 1.1.4 of the product, which is has been available since December 2015, takes this emulator to the next level, making it the best 5250 Emulator available. These differentiations will be described and discussed in this session.

7:00 Session 2:

Let's Get Mobile (A Hands On Introduction to IBM i Mobile Access)

  • Speaker: Tim Rowe

  • Abstract: Mobile is becoming more and more the norm. People want to be able to access and manage their systems from their Mobile devices basically anywhere.

    Having a robust easy to use solution is key.

    The new iAccess Mobile Solutions support is just that. Bring your own Device along and follow along as we all access an IBM i with our Mobile device. Look at Spool Files, respond to messages on the QSYSOPR Message Queue, work with Jobs, Run SQL Scripts and play with the 5250 Green Screen interface.

    Everything you need to Access and Manage your system is just a 'swipe' away.
