From the President

Dear Members

We are very pleased to have Sandi Moore from Helpsystems present on a very timely topic "Simple Strategies for In-Depth Malware Defense". With changes over the years everyone now must be concerned and consider a strategy against invasion by unwanted visitors. You'll be sure to walk away with useful tips that can be applied within your environment. Join us onsite at Brasscraft or remotely via Webex on Tuesday, May 15th.

Plans are in the works for June to include a Web Query topic presented by Doug Mack from IBM Rochester. Stayed tuned for details. Plans are in progress and will be posted shortly on the group web site. Web Query is a very robust tool that provides a desirable option on the IBM i platform to meet data analytics/business intelligence needs. The product continues to be upgraded with new features and functionalities. Join us in June to find out more.
