There is nothing more important that being able to communication with ease between smart phones, tablets, and PCs. Companies and employees alike are in a technological world where being connected and able to communicate 24/7 is necessary. Now a new utility, GreenJab, will make the process that much easier.
BVS Tools has recently released the solution to help IBM (News - Alert) i server and any other client device to communicate through an instant messaging protocol.
IT Jungle reported, “Jabber, officially known as Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP), is an open source, XML-based IM protocol that’s also an official IETF Internet Standard. There are more than 100 XMPP/Jabber clients available on the market, and a couple dozen servers, according to the XMPP Standards Foundation…according to BVS Tools, GreenJab is the first and only XMPP/Jabber client for the IBM i server.”
Once installed, GreenJab lets users communicate with their IBM i using Google (News - Alert) Talk or Jabber, send messages to remote devices such as an Android or iPhone, green screen chat with clients and other applications, and control remote processes through your phone. This means that you’re IBM i would have the ability to alert you of serious situations, job messages, and any other information without the need for logging into the system.
Although BVS sees the importance of users connecting GreenJab with Google Talk, the company is promoting that users find alternative programs like one of their own.
Brad Stone, of BVS Tools told IT Jungle, “It would pair nicely with a job-watching tool, like our JOBWATCH tool. It could send a message or messages via Google Talk or other Jabber chat client instead of, or along with, email when a job enters MSGW, or locks up.”
