    This IBM Redbooks publication offers a collection of knowledge gained from Geac consultants, customers, and AS/400 professionals who have experience with System 21 and the AS/400 system. This is a detailed guide that explains the concepts and specific tasks associated with implementation of System 21 on the AS/400 system. This book is designed to assist technical people among Geac System 21 customers, business partners, and service representatives. It targets these professionals who are directly involved with the implementation of a total business solution consisting of AS/400 hardware, OS/400, DB2 UDB for AS/400 database, Geac System 21 solutions, and supplemental solution products.
