Maintaining an IBM i Development Staff in a Changing World
(4:30pm - 5:30pm)

For a long time, IT was treated as a cost center in many businesses. Now, your IT team should be a business asset, and should be treated like one from a business perspective. In this session we will examine how to maintain a development staff effectively in a post-pandemic world.

Topics covered will include:

Experience breakdown of a dev team
Managing turnover as a business risk
Telecommuting pros/cons
Staff development
Managing expectations/shop standards
Finding talent


Modern Application Integration via API
(7:30pm - 8:30pm)

We no longer live in a world where we have one system of record that is used for all business functions. IT is an everchanging blend of tools, applications, and platforms. Integration is top of mind for most businesses. If there is one common way to link all these systems, it is an API layer. Your IBM i should speak the language of APIs, both consuming and hosting.

In this session:

Let’s look at the big picture with regards to APIs and IBM i
Importance of APIs in modern architecture
Common API integration needs
Replacing legacy interfaces
Elements of a successful API implementation
