Great discussions about the future of the IBM i on LinkedIn.

I’ve been following some great comments on LinkedIn about the viability of the IBM i and RPG in the future.  I felt that I could recommend our users to review some of these great discussions about it.  Let us know what you think with your comments.

November 9th – Simon O’Sullivan presentation on Disaster Recovery Scenarios

Maxava

Our November meeting was a great presentation by Simon O’Sullivan of Maxava.  He was here all the way from New Zealand so that we could enjoy the insight and shared experiences of the various disaster recovery scenarios that Maxava has help their clients address.

But first of all, we had Matt Kingdon give us a little 4 minute video about the Utah ShakeOut organization which is getting Utah ready for the next big earthquake by having a drill on April 17, 2012. Check the website at http://www.shakeout.org/utah/.

Then Simon O’Sullivan showed us the real live experiences that business’s had during the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake and the Japan tsunami.  He also talked a little about some of the events that happened here in the United States.  As IBM i administrators and developers, we are keenly aware of the great capabilities of this platform and started some great discussion and comments throughout this presentation. We learned much and enjoyed the new insight.

Here is the video.
