.NET Abides by IBM i Logic, Thanks to New LANSA Product
by Alex Woodie

It would be a huge understatement to say it's a challenge to get .NET and RPG programs--let alone .NET or RPG programmers--to play by the same set of rules. For companies that rely on a mix of IBM i (AS/400) and Microsoft Windows servers to run their business applications, it's a problem faced on a daily basis. But thanks to a new data integrity tool launched last week, LANSA's Open for .NET, users can share DB2/400 data and enforce IBM i business rules upon Windows .NET applications, in real time.

FIPS is for Private Enterprise, Too
by Alex Woodie

It used to be that the collection of data security and interoperability standards known as the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) was used primarily by companies holding contracts with the federal government. Not anymore. According to host emulation and integration software provider Attachmate, which recently obtained FIPS validation for a new release of its Verastream Host Integration product, private enterprises without government contracts are also looking for the FIPS seal of approval.
