As per announcement letters 313-040 and 313-041, IBM has added POWER7+ hardware to the list of qualifying and eligible products in their software solutions' first-in-location or competitive migration rebate programs. You can receive a rebate equal to the total invoice price of the eligible new ISV software licenses acquired, up to a maximum rebate that is dependent upon the eligible new server minimum configurations outlined in the announcement letters. For example, if you purchase an ISV solution that costs $10,000, that's what you're entitled to as a rebate if the eligible hardware rebate value is greater than or equal to $10,000.

Technology Focus: Tools for Extending Server Apps to Mobile Devices

As iPads, tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices become more ubiquitous, so do the means of translating IBM i apps to mobile-friendly versions.

The convenience of mobile devices is just the beginning of yet another technology advance that one suspects will utterly transform business life over the next few years. Not that it hasn't already, but we most likely have only begun to exploit 24/7 connectivity compared to what will be commonplace in the future.

Partner TechTip: Is Your Query Tool Right for You?

Users need a flexible query tool that is powerful and easy to use.

heath kathWritten by Heath Kath

Is your query tool up to date and function-rich? Are you able to build queries that end users, managers, and departments can use? Can it collect data from or send data to other systems or platforms? Does it provide run-time prompting? Does it handle data-mapping errors, especially around numeric date fields? Does it take advantage of SQL Query Engine (SQE) to improve run-time performance? Does it provide multiple interfaces—green-screen, Web browser, and GUI? Can it send query results directly to a PC document (.xlsx, PDF, text, HTML, etc.)?
