Lineup for The Omni User tech conference 2017 announced...

The Omni User is putting on its annual 1 day technical conference in Schaumburg, IL, Tuesday September 19th 2017.  The organizers ( ) are promising a great value.  Education content will include the latest in relational database capabilities, IBM i Admin, development on the IBM i platform and a keynote on Watson integration. 

One common denominator for most everyone in IT is SQL and relational database.  This year Scott Forstie from IBM will be presenting on late breaking features such as Row and Column Access Control.  Apparently one thing you can do with this new Db2 for i capability is to define rules that restrict data access to certain users, by say, a company identifier data element, using SQL where clauses and joins.  The row access control technique occurs not within application programming but instead it is defined at a database admin security level, so it prevents even read access to unauthorized portions of data for query users or any ad-hoc methods of data access in a proactive manner.  Thus, use of this technique in the future may provide an an easier way to go beyond object level permissions and get down into the application data level for enforcement of data ownership and inquiry rights. 

Another new feature in Db2 involves temporal table support, which provides for SQL access to see table(s) as they existed at any point in the past, including records that have long since been deleted.  Obviously rows that are deleted before the temporal table support is turned on aren’t available. 

There will be 3 other tracks of presentations.  One is Pete Massiello talking about IBM i admin topics including Virtual i Partitions and key things to know for your IBM i 7.3, 7.2 or 7.1 OS upgrades.  Tim Rowe, an excellent source for information about the latest happenings in the IBM i area, will do several sessions, which I am sure will include good details about the RDi IDE, which has new features added recently to accommodate refactoring. 

Barbara Morris is a very insightful presenter with a lot of insider knowledge.  She will be doing a session recapping many of the new RPG Free features that have been brought to fruition since IBM i 7.1, and another session focusing on new support for handling null values in RPG (along with some candid insights) and more. 

Full details on all of the presentations are now on the Omni User web site. ( Omni User Technical Conference 2017 Session Grid... ) The conference will start out with keynote topic IBM i Talks to Watson.

In the Expo, Tegratecs will be there talking about its Financial Portrait accounting suite and smartclient, ETL and our top quality development services, which now include expertise in real time integration with Db2 for i from c# and ASP.NET web forms

WMCPA's annual conference March 14-17 2017 was great...

WMCPA put together another excellent conference on the heels of last year's success.  There were over 20 speakers and 50 sessions included with conference attendance.  The snow on the ground made for nice views and an atmosphere of learning.  Upper class hospitality and comfort and value was provided by the Lake Lawn resort.  Tegratecs was there as a corporate sponsor working on focusing new business development efforts around IBM's DB2 for i data provider and proactive row locking with SQL techniques (for most any DB).

On April 12th, 2016, IBM announced a new version of the IBM i operating system.  IBM i 7.3 runs on selected IBM Power Systems and PurePower Systems servers with POWER7, POWER7+, and POWER8 processors.  Way cool is the new temporal table support included with DB2® for i reported to allow an "as of" date and time support with minimal development effort, potentially providing a better alternative to other more time consuming and intracate application software development techniques.  Please take a look through these links for more information...

Tegratecs announces licensing of the ASNA DataGate Webpak

Tegratecs Development Corp. of Schaumburg, IL is pleased to announce licensing of the ASNA DataGate Webpak 12.0 in April 2015.   DataGate Webpak is a runtime for Microsoft's IIS web server that supports ASNA’s Visual RPG (AVR) for .NET programming language in the code-behind.  AVR for .NET brings along several familiar constructs from traditional IBM i languages, yet incorporates full object-oriented (OO) interaction with .NET framework objects and methods at runtime.  AVR for .NET is compatible with running, instantiating and inheriting c# and components and web pages within the same website.  In addition to the ability to target stored procedures to MSSQL or IBM DB2 for i, the language provides support for RLA data access and data buffering, which comes in handy for advanced and nimble cursor-like random access using the keys to record index without relying on process memory.
