An activity in which many people are asked a question or a series of questions in order to gather information about what most people do or think about something? Answer: What is a survey? We’re always pointing out surveys to you, our readers, here in the Jungle, because it is a valuable way we have of finding out what’s going on out there in IBM i Land. So forgive us for nagging but if you can spare a few moments, we have another one to point out to you at the top of our Redbooks, White Papers, Blogs, and Other Resources section below.
