Presentation:IBM i - it's not just AS/400


True or False: The IBM i operating system is just the AS/400 all over again. False! The AS/400 provided a solid foundation, but it has evolved over the years into the entirely new technology that we call IBM i. It now has been IBM i longer than the old AS/400 name. The 2022 chapter in our journey from AS/400 to IBM i includes new cloud offerings, new Technology Refreshes, new 7.5 OS level, new i Navigator interface, new customers, and a strong roadmap. How do these additions make the platform more powerful? During this session, IBM i CTO & Chief Architect/IBM Distinguished Engineer Steve Will joins IBM Power Champion Tom Huntington to share a unique perspective on the direction of this platform, including:

IBM i is unique in design, security, scalability, and application development. Its heritage and strategic innovation point to a bright future for this strategic server that continues to support organizations in every industry around the world. Don’t miss a moment as the saga unfolds—watch now! Get Started IBM i and AS/400 fans alike recognize the power and strategic value of this platform. The best way to ensure that your organization sees it too is by pairing it with modern systems management, security, and data access tools. See how the right combination of hardware and Fortra software can give your AS/400 a new lease on life.
