IBM eServer iSeries: Built for e-business

Book description:
Internet technology has unquestionably revolutionized the way business is conducted today. It has opened up unprecedented opportunities at affordable prices for real-time collaboration between businesses. It has made the computing resources of internal IT systems available to the masses. And it has made the long-standing promise of affordable outsourcing a reality. Indeed, e-business computing has changed the way we all approach information technology.

With this book, author Bob Cancilla provides a road map for iSeries customers to identify and understand the tremendous wealth of e-business software bundled with OS/400. He takes each of the main e-business components and explains what it is, how it works, and how it can be used to improve business environments. Bob focuses on the function available and provides a glimpse into the future by describing function currently under development. The information is timely, relevant and accurate.

Bob draws on his real-world experiences from many years in the computer industry along with feedback obtained from numerous questions posed in his popular Ignite/400 forum. He knows which topics are most important to users and which are least understood. He knows what level of understanding most iSeries customers have on topics like TCP/IP, DNS, LDAP, VPN and Apache. He knows the questions you would ask, and in this book, he provides the answers in clear, straightforward language. You don't have to be an expert in these topics to leverage them to your advantage, and this book will show you how.
