Topic IBM Query/400 Replacement Alternatives

IBM Query/400 arrived with the AS/400 in 1988 and has remained essentially unchanged ever since. With the launch of IBM i V5R4, IBM began offering DB2 Web Query as their Query/400 replacement, but many IBM i customers still run Query/400 queries every day. During this presentation you'll learn about DB2 Web Query licensing and potential third-party and open source alternatives. At the end, there will be a brief demonstration of Qport Office, a free Windows application that enables Query/400 users to output data directly to Microsoft Excel, Word, and Access.

Speaker:  Bill Langston
