Four Hundred Monitor, October 12
October 12, 2022 Jenny Thomas
Some weeks, a particular topic or story is trending. And other weeks, there’s just a lot going on. We’ve got a hodgepodge of stories for you in Monitor this week. And not just in the Top Stories. There’s some sales going on you might want to take a look at, and we’re still asking everyone to take the annual Marketplace Survey, which gives us a better look at what’s really going on around our ecosystem. Plus, there’s lots of good stuff in today’s issue you won’t want to miss, including Alex Woodie’s look at the unexpected Fall Technology Refreshes for its two most current IBM i operating systems, including 7.5 and 7.4.
