From the President
We're excited to have "Mobile Access to IBM i" presented by Wayne Bowers, Advisory Software Engineer, from IBM Rochester.
Access for Web has been updated to provide Mobile Access. Now you will be able to access your IBM i through a mobile application that runs natively on IBM i. From your mobile device you'll be able to work with active sessions, work with printer output, job logs, spool files, system operator messages, message queues and the DB2 database. Join us Tuesday night on site at the Bloomfield Hills library or remotely in webinar format. This is sure to be a great tool that will help greatly with system support. No need to lug the laptop around to monitor your system? It will be exciting to hear what will be provided and how to attain the tool.
It's that time of year again we will hold elections during Tuesday's meeting. We will have members vote immediately following the meeting. There's still time to run for the board. It doesn't take much time commitment and makes a big difference. If you are interested you can contact .
A special thanks to the 2014/2015 board. We had a wonderful SEMIUG year and were able to bring great current topics and presentations to local (and some remote) local i colleagues. Our student game activity was a great success. We were also added some new meeting locations to our mix thanks to member organizations stepping forward to allow SEMIUG to hold meetings and thanks to members helping align facilities. Thank you Vice President Jim Thompson, Secretary Amanda Walsh, Treasurer Charles Nalbandian, Directors; Joy Chen, Gelita Maxwell, Doug Rezanka and Andy Davison and webmaster Dale Thieme.
Please put your thinking cap on. During the June meeting we will also ask members for feedback on topics that you would like to see included within the 2015/2016 SEMIUG calendar. Be prepared to share your thoughts and feedback. See you Tuesday!
President Southeast Michigan iSeries User Group
Power Systems Initiative
Dear Power User Group:
Recently, I was given the opportunity to move from the field and join the Power Systems Academic Initiative (PSAI) team. I thought I would take this opportunity to share with your User Group the latest happenings of the PSAI. As the Power Brand continues to it efforts to expand our ecosystem through OpenPower, ISV and MSP growth, and PowerLinux initiatives, we are similarly increasing our ongoing investment in the PSAI. Throughout PSAI's 17 year history, we have continued to focus on the following objectives:
- Increase the awareness and education of students about Power Systems to help drive new client pipeline
- Provide educators with the resources and tools they need to teach Power Systems technology
- Help establish connections for educators to their local Power Systems business community to encourage collaboration
- Facilitate linkage of graduates and our clients regarding internships and jobs
We currently have 67 schools teaching AIX, IBM i and Power Linux skills in North America (192 worldwide) and our goal is to double this number by 2015. These schools are very interested in partnering with our business community. We offer both entry level and professional level job boards for our clients and business partners to utilize - FREE of charge. These openings are publicized to our current member schools.
We need students to fill the pipeline of the next generation of Unix Administrators and RPG programmers. We get more students by partnering with the academic community and offering internships and jobs, serving on advisory committees helping guide curriculum and sometimes even teaching as adjunct professors.
Please share this message with your User Group. Ask them to share it with Clients, Business Partners and any Academic Institutions. Our clients and business partners need skilled individuals, our schools need students in their classes, and students need opportunities for internships and jobs. This is WIN, WIN, WIN for all involved.
You can find out more about the Power Systems Academic Initiative, including the list of participating schools and the job boards, at the link below. If anyone has any questions about the program, is interested in finding skilled talent or knows of any potential academic partners, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
