What resource should be used to assemble the sales material for a competitive opportunity?
Answer: D Explanation:
FindIt ends the problem of matching sources to objects in a busy production environment. FindIt locates sources or objects on a single AS/400 (System i) or across a network of many AS/400 systems, and lets you instantly match the correct version of a source against that live object.
On a command line simply enter FIND followed by the name of the source member, and FindIt displays a complete list of all versions of that source, showing where the source is located, giving source files, libraries and iSeries systems.
