    IBM i Access Client Solutions is the newest member of the IBM i Access Product Family. It is a platform independent client that is supported on multiple Operating Systems like Macintosh, Linux and Windows. Familiarity with IBM i Access Client Solutions is very important as this is the future of the IBM i Access Family software on workstation operating systems. This future looks very bright, and IBM i Access Client Solutions provides ease of deployment and operational improvements in nearly every function the client provides. Actually the future is already here, as in April of 2015 IBM announced that there are no plans to support the r7.1 IBM i Access for Windows client on future versions of the Windows OS. So, this IBM i Access Client Solutions product is the only environment fully supported on the Windows 10 OS, and it is the strategic direction for IBM i Access workstation client environments.

     

    Day 1: During this session, we compare and contrast IBM i Access Client Solutions to IBM i Access for Windows.

    Day 2: This session focuses on the Administration tools and approaches for IBM i Access Client Solutions. A special focus is placed on moving a PC that has IBM i Access for Windows installed to IBM i Access Client Solutions.
