It’s Thanksgiving here in the US, where did the year go?  It’s been a great year here at iTech Solutions. We have increased our IBMi services and offerings, increased our staff, and we are working with many new customers and helping our existing customers.  We have a lot to be thankful for, and are glad that you gave us the opportunity to work with you.  If there is anything that we do that doesn’t exceed your expectations, please contact me directly. I hope with the upcoming holidays approaching you are able to spend it with your family and friends, and that you have much to be thankful for as well.  As many of our readers over the years know, this will be our last newsletter of the year.  In December, we publish the much anticipated How iTech Solutions helped Santa save Christmas newsletter.  I hear there are some new POWER8 stories to be told, so get your stockings hung by the fire and the December issue will be out within a month.
