NGS-IQ Desktop Module Workshops

Lesson Description: If you own licenses of the NGS-IQ modules but have not deployed them or are not using all of their capabilities, the NGS-IQ Desktop Module Workshop offers a valuable opportunity to realize an immediate return of your investment in these products. The Workshop is offered either on-site at your company location or online. The step-by-step lessons and comprehensive manual are designed to decrease your IT staff’s involvement in the reporting process by maximizing your users’ own productivity to quickly take advantage of the functionality offered in these modules.

Class Content: Pre-defined exercises, taught "lecture-style" using sample DB2 data from the IQ Tutorial database on NGS’ IBM i server.* The Workshop focuses on capabilities of the NGS-IQ desktop modules (IQ Client, Qport Access, and SmartView) and simplification of the reporting process using Windows functions. New lessons include enhancements in NGS-IQ Release 7.1.

* Lessons can be customized with your company’s business data. NGS would sign a non-disclosure agreement.

Profile of Attendee: Current/potential users of these modules (no query development knowledge required) and IT staff.

Cost: The attractive, low cost of the on-site or online Workshop makes it very affordable for your company’s budget.

Class Time: 4 hours hours.
