Next IMUG meeting:
November 15th, 2016


Date:         Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Speaker:   Jim Knight -  MDR Solutions Manager



  Presentation: "Breaking Bad" IBM i Habits!

Best Practices is all about meeting IBM system compliance and achieving optimal results.  Don’t let old ideas or newly formed bad habits be the difference between a successful IBM Power deployment and a failure in service delivery. This session will examine System configuration, Backups, Disaster Recovery,and Security management.

This session is a compilation of assumptions, technical gaps, blunders, oops, and best practice recommendations. Hear actual lessons learned so you do not make the same IBM i assumptions others have made. Ensure this Hollywood Classic does not portray your IT shop as the names have been changedto protect the guilty.
