Linoma Software Lends Its Support to iManifest

The IBM i – still a hardworking system

The IBM i continues to work as the backbone of data processing for thousands of mid-size to large enterprises around the world. The secure architecture and flexibility of the IBM i (formerly branded as AS/400, iSeries and System i) has given it much more longevity than was ever predicted by those early skeptics. Even though the IBM i is a very powerful and robust computing platform, many its supporters do not think it's getting the attention that it deserves.

This is why Linoma Software is helping to fund the iManifest (http://www.imanifest-us.com) initiative, which is an independent movement to recognize the value and achievements of IBM i. iManifest's stated goal is to "act widely, in various ways helping business-people recognize the merit, excellence and achievements of IBM i."

An Advanced IBM Business Partner and recipient of awards for its software solutions, Linoma continues to make significant R&D investments into the IBM i marketplace. "We want to shed more light on the IBM i," says Bob Luebbe - Chief Software Architect at Linoma Software. "Any company that uses an IBM i understands its proven abilities, reliability and speed. I think the iManifest initiative is a great way to get more visibility to this awesome platform, which I have great respect for after personally working with it for over 20 years."

Linoma Software actively develops, updates, and supports the following solutions for the IBM i platform:

  • RPG Toolbox - The powerful developer toolset that modernizes legacy RPG code to /Free form, including tools to clean up unused RPG source, indent nested logic and write source faster.
  • Surveyor/400 - An award-winning solution for maximizing the value of your IBM i through an intuitive graphical interface. Using Surveyor/400, both I.T. personnel and end-users can quickly access and work with iSeries data, files, libraries, objects and reports.
  • Crypto Complete - Protects sensitive data using strong encryption, integrated key management and auditing. Crypto Complete allows organizations to encrypt database fields, backups and IFS files quickly and effectively with its intuitive screens and proven technology.

Linoma Software's GoAnywhere Suite runs on IBM i and other platforms:

  • GoAnywhere Director - Streamlines and manages data movement through an innovative centralized approach. It allows your organization to connect to almost any system (internal or external) and securely exchange data using a wide variety of standard protocols.
  • GoAnywhere Services - Allows trading partners and employees to securely connect to your organization and easily download or upload files. Popular file transfer and encryption standards are supported without the need for proprietary client software.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
