It’s a great time to be an IT professional. With the overall shortage of trained IT staff you are in demand. Yet employee turnover is also highest in the tech sector. One day, you’re working comfortably alongside your colleague. The next day, she’s gone—poached by a competitor, reassigned, or retired—and your boss hands you her operating system: “an AS/400”, he says.
“What the heck is an AS/400?” you think. What your boss might not know—and what you’re about to find out—is that this so-called AS/400 is actually the backbone of your entire business! With no in-house expert to teach you the ropes, where can you turn for help?
