What do we mean by application and software modernization? Why is it important to get current on releases?

You’ll learn about open source and hybrid cloud, Internet of Things (IoT) and APIs, commercial vs. homegrown applications, technical debt and “resource debt”, and tools to speed development.

From the President

Dear Members:

We hope that you enjoyed the summer break. We have a very exciting 2021/2022 year planned. The SEMIUG board met over the summer break and has put together an awesome plan for monthly meetings including opensource, Webquery, modernization, working remote, Power10, RPG updates, security and more. If there are specific topics that you’d like to see at upcoming meetings or events please reach out to any SEMIUG board member. Our meetings will be held in virtual format. We are hoping once it is safe to schedule an onsite meeting and activity.

We will be kicking off the 2021/2022 year with a modernization presentation. Led by Tom Huntington from Helpsystems, panel members Charles Guarino of Central Park Data, Mike Pavlak of Perforce and Laura Ubelhor of Consultech Services, Inc. share insights in a panel discussion format. Modernization is a very important and timely topic. The presentation explores areas that are important to modernization and will surely help you in your effort to modernize. To modernize is important and a must to thrive today.

We hope to hold MITEC onsite in June 2022. We have heard from many group members the desire to have onsite event and look forward to being able to do so. Much has been happening on the platform. There have been significant advancements on the platform and SEMIUG strives to bring current relevant world class presentations to our local community.

Thank you volunteers for stepping forward and volunteering. A special Thank you to our 2021/2022 board; Joy Chen, Charles Nalbandian, Amanda Smith, Jim Thompson, Ed Berryhill and Doug Rezanka. We look forward to an awesome year and also look forward to seeing everyone at an upcoming virtual meeting and hopefully soon in a face to face activity.


Regards,
Laura
