State of IBM i Modernization Survey: Current Attitudes Towards IBM i

Posted by Profound Logic on Mar 19, 2019 11:59:53 AM



This year's annual 'State of IBM i Modernization' survey focused on three key topics: the current state of the IBM i, the current attitude towards the IBM i, and what the future looks like for the IBM i. Profound Logic reached out to the  community with a series of vital questions on these topics and we received nearly 800 responds from developers, executives and everyone in-between. This large scale response resulted in one of our most productive surveys, giving us a wide range of answers. 

Traditionally, the negative view of the IBM i has been a roadblock for future development and modernization. This survey proves that that attitude is shifting, with more businesses having more confidence in the platform than in the past. Concerns are still present - a diminishing developer pool and outdated interfaces for example - but none that can't easily be addressed to ensure a long and healthy future for the IBM i business.

This three-part blog series will dive into the key topics discussed within the survey: This week we discuss the Current Attitudes Towards IBM i.

Building A Real-World Cognitive Solution with Profound Logic

Posted by Alex Roytman on Mar 5, 2019 4:27:54 PM

Recently, I wrote an article for the Cognitive Computing and AI edition of the COMMON Connect digital magazine. They asked me to discuss my thoughts on cognitive solutions and how Profound Logic was tackling the use of AI in the real world. I broke down the three stages when it comes to developing a cognitive project and also gave an example of a Watson visual recognition app I created. This blog also includes an interactive NodeRun embed that allows you to explore the code and implement your own cognitive proof of concept application.

Profound Pro Tip: Using Your IBM i Tables with NodeRun

Today’s Topic: Using Your IBM i Tables with NodeRun

Last week we introduced NodeRun, which is a great tool for experimenting and designing applications with Node.js and Profound.js in a cloud environment. This environment is perfect for creating database-driven applications that you can share and collaborate on with others. To enable building these database-driven applications, the NodeRun environment is built with a MariaDB database already installed.

One of the biggest perks of NodeRun is the ability to build tables. Creating a space using one of the built-in templates will create a table that you can use in NodeRun's environment. These tables are pre-populated with example data that you can use in your application.

Today’s Topic: Custom Context Menus

Some Profound UI users would prefer to replace information anchored to the screen with a popup context menu, but linking the popup to the anchored text so that the user can use the function buttons can be tricky, especially when you have multiple lines of data. Below is a context menu specific example of our Profound Pro Tip: Creating Custom Tool Tips.
