RPG DB2 Summit. Get ready to see Silveredge

August 29th, 2017


For all IBM i Developers…Now that fall is here and you’re well on your way to leading your fantasy league, it’s time to start thinking about the Fall RPG DB2 Summit in Minneapolis from October 17th – October 19th.


The summit provides excellent opportunities for developers to enhance their IBM i knowledge and skills. Susan Gantner, John Paris, and Paul Tuohy will be joined by industry recognized guest instructors to present more than 50 sessions over the three days in a wide range of relevant IBM i topics.  These include the latest tips, techniques, and best practices for immediate use in IBM i application modernization, web development and mobile apps.  More specifically, these topics include:  RPG IV, ILE, Free Form RPG; Embedded SQL; DB2 for i capabilities; Application Modernization; Leveraging for RPG for Web and Mobile Apps; PHP for RPG people; SQL Tuning; Modern database techniques; Navigator and other modern tools.  If so inclined, there are also hands-on preconference workshops available on October 16th.

And don’t forget the networking opportunities! At the summit, you will have a ton of opportunities during lunches, breaks, dinners and cocktails, and the expo portion to interact with the speakers, vendors, and your peers in an informal, and very informative, setting.


In addition to the sessions, the EXPO is always of interest.  Don’t forget to stop by the Silveredge booth to say hello!  We are looking forward to seeing familiar faces, as well as meeting new ones.  While there, take the time to register for our raffle and let us know how we can help you.  Chances are – we’ve done that!

At WMCPA this week, IBM hinted that 7.3 will be announced at COMMON in April. The new release will be focused on mobile, security, and big data. Expect a high availability component as well. IBM indicates the AS/400 operating system as originally delivered doesn’t really exist as it did; the operating system has been completely modernized since then.

Silveredge will see you in New Orleans. www.common.org



Inovis Conference and Silveredge

June 11th, 2010

Four of our consultants attended the Inovis User Conference held in Chicago this week. The Inovis folks in attendance were very knowledgeable and our consultants were impressed with the level of expertise in attendance. Key topics included both new and advanced features to the EDI translation software. Upgrades to automated operations are available. The standards presentation was great with much information regarding both XML and X12.

Silveredge has been doing complex EDI implementations since 1991. As a business partner of Inovis, we believe attending conferences of this sort is important to our customer base. We ensure our consultants are well versed in new features and technologies available. By sending our most talented EDI consultants, they can pass this information to others in our firm.
