The workshops will show how IT teams can resolve problems before they impact the business by using modernised, web-enabled monitoring solutions and remote management techniques with mobile 'apps' for IBM i, Windows, AIX and Linux platforms. Halcyon also has an excellent reputation for technical support in the region and for competitive pricing policies."
