Announcement for WMSUG & i-94 User Group Meeting - Feb 18th  

*** Note: Lunch Hour Meeting *** see note below 

"IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS) & Mobile Client"
by Raymond G. Johnson, System i technical consultant, iSolutions Consulting, Inc. 

IBM i Access for Web V7R2M0 brings the IBM i to your iPhone, iPad or a PC browser without ANY IBM i Software whatsoever installed on the PC. Installation is really a snap. 

(details provided)  

Then I want to differentiate the new Mobile client with IBM i Access Client Solutions (ACS), a new member of the IBM i Access Product Family (and replacement for IBM i Access for Windows) . It is a Java client that is supported running on multiple Operating Systems like Macintosh, Linux and Windows. 

This session will explore both new products with a focus on the functionality of each product so you can decide what your organization needs. 

Learning Objectives: 
- Understand the difference between Access for Mobile and IBM i Access Client Solutions and the features of each. 

- How to obtain and enable Access for Mobile V7R2M0 on V7R1M0 or V6R1M0. 

- Demonstrate some of my favorite new functions of the IBM i Access Client that are not found in Client Access for Windows. 

- Cheat sheet showing where to find the (amazingly well hidden) ACS client. (See: "ACS Client Cheat Sheet" document in the Sidebar)
