How to remain Relevant in a changing IT Environment

Education in today’s IT and Business Environment challenges both the Company and the employee. What skills are needed to provide for today’s (and tomorrow’s) business needs? How does the company and the employee deal with these challenges? How to decide; what to learn, how to learn and when to learn, when planning for future needs. These challenges differ depending on where a person is in their careers path. Jim discusses these challenges and more in this presentation. Great presentation for managers and employees!

This decoupling of the UI (5250 Subfile) allows the service program to be used as a web service. The session will take the attendee through the process of developing a SQL/Service program based CRUD application using Free Form RPG and RDi’s (Remote Systems Explorer and Screen Designer).
