Recently IBM announced a major upgrade of the Navigator for i management interface for IBM i 7.3 and 7.4. This is the biggest upgrade to this interface EVER, and it is awesome! The meeting will be a review of many new features in the New Navigator for i released last month. This will be an all live demo where we show those features and allow questions and interaction. We'll talk briefly about how to get the upgrade, and how to access the upgraded version, then we'll dig into the show and tell!
