The first half of 2017 (wow, where does time go that 2017 is now 1/2 over?) has seen us add additional staff, increase and expand the IBM i services that we are delivering, and continue to grow our remote System Administration services.  Look for us to continue to grow those areas, and you will be seeing our new video series start to unfold during the summer.  We will be starting with a video series of IBM i System Admin Tips and Techniques.  I don’t think we will win any Oscars, but we will certainly make your life easier with these short videos.…
