Online communities have become a necessity in today’s business world. The Greenbook research industry has claimed that 50% of researchers now use online communities.
Generally, communities are groups of people who share a specialty, interest, or a set of common problems. Keeping this common interest in mind, Integrative Systems (a pioneer company in Custom Software Development & Web App Development) has launched the IBMi community.
The community is a joint initiative of more than 30 highly experienced and skilled professionals, having more than 20 years of experience in customer problem solving and increasing profitability.
The community serves as an alternative to traditional professional websites for those unfamiliar with managing IBMi/AS400/iSeries software projects or do not have access to those websites.
The community will allow members to deepen their understanding of IBMi and other related technology by interacting on an ongoing basis, asking and answering questions, sharing information, solving problems, and developing new and better ways of doing things.
Moreover, the community is unique as the industry experts themselves control it and not any third party.
Everyone, irrespective of their designation and rank in professional space, is allowed to ask questions from the IBMi veterans and get answers within 24 hours. This community is a golden platform if anyone is willing to learn RPG/COBOL/DB2 and enhance his/her skill, without any fees.
This community will benefit you:
- If you are a veteran in the AS400 field and want to share new ideas, show proven practices and give practical suggestions.
- If you are new to the AS400 field and want to learn from other members of the community.
- If you are a working professional and want to collaborate through threaded discussions, conversations, and interactions.
- Or you want to innovate yourself through brainstorming and want to stay updated with emerging trends and developments in the AS400 field.
- Connect with the people who know about the AS400 technical skills than you.
