Need information from IBM regarding the IBM i Strategy?
Curious about the IBMi or the AS/400? Are you an IT Executive planning for your critical business applications?
While this came out a while ago, it makes sense to read this if you missed it.
IBM published this in 2016 as a white paper for IT Execs to understand the IBM i and where it is headed. It may not answer all of your questions for sure. But is makes sense to keep an eye on their published information. It does help strengthen low cost of ownership argument. There’s good information on server consolidation and other movement happening in the IBMi world.
Regardless, read it and keep in in mind as you strategize your critical business applications. You will find support from IBM.
