Attend this meeting for a real-world discussion of what one IT leader has done to bring his department up to date.  Anders Roede is Manager of Information Services at Signet Armorlite, Inc. in San Marcos, CA, an optical lens manufacturer.  He will talk about what his department did to get themselves “unstuck” from using old RPGIII and begin employing newer techniques, and the challenges they faced.  He will cover free-format, procedures, service programs, and embedded SQL.  He will also touch on what they are doing to get the users onto browser-based screens utilizing HTML and Javascript.

Living with Microsoft SQL Server in an IBM i Shop - Craig Pelkie


Microsoft SQL Server is one of the most widely used database management systems. It is frequently used with the IBM i in many companies. In this session you'll learn about some of the major features of SQL Server that can be used to complement your IBM i database. You'll see how you can replicate data from your IBM i to SQL Server, or from SQL Server to your IBM i. You'll also learn about additional features of SQL Server, including scripting, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS).  


Craig Pelkie has worked as a developer/analyst with IBM midrange computers for many years. He has also written and lectured extensively on IBM AS/400 and iSeries technologies, including client/serverprogramming, Client Access, Java, WebSphere, MS.Net applications for the iSeries, and Web development. Craig has extended his RPG skills by being an early adopter of Java, WebSphere, VB.Net and MS-Sequel Server, mastering firewall issues, Web Services, exchanging data from RPG to Sequel Server and from Sequel Server to update RPG and System i files.
