Why Expert System i Training Is Essential – And How Life IT Can Provide It

If you’re responsible for providing support for an IBM AS/400, iSeries or System i environment, you’ll know just how important the system is to your business. And chances are you’d benefit from some System i training in order to keep your hardware and software running smoothly and efficiently.

Or maybe you’re a System i user who wants to make sure you’re making the most of the system. But where can you find high quality training you can trust?

The answer: with Life IT. They offer System i training, support and bespoke solution development services UK-wide.

Here’s why it’s essential to have expert System i training – and why you should consider choosing Life IT as your training provider…

User training for improved productivity
Your System i users are almost certainly finding working in a System i environment a rewarding experience. But there may be things they could be doing faster or more efficiently. By making sure they’re using System i to its full potential, you’ll maximise productivity.

Fewer disruptions, less downtime
Ensure your administrators have in-depth knowledge of System i and they’ll be able to spot issues before they become big problems – which will minimise the chance of your system going down. They’ll also be able to get your system back up and running much faster after any crashes. System i training from Life IT can help get your team up to speed with best practices – as well as teaching them a few useful tricks they won’t find in the manual.

Less reliance on third-party support
For some businesses it’s entirely necessary to have third-party System i support (indeed, this is one of the many services offered by Life IT). But if you have an on-site support team, and they’re given thorough System i training, you can minimise the need outside suppliers.

Why choose Life IT for System i training?
There are so many reasons! First of all, as IBM Premier Business Partners, Life IT are knowledgeable experts in all things System i, iSeries and AS/400. What’s more, Life IT will tailor your System i training programme to the precise needs of you and your team, meaning you’ll get the best possible value for money – and a team who can work more efficiently and productively.

Courses from Life IT include systems operations, work management, client access, programming and many others, all designed to turn System i novices into knowledgeable experts and power users.
