Today I read an article in eweek about IBM i from a reporter who had attended the IBM Think 2019 conference in San Francisco, encountered IBM i for the first time and thought he had stepped into an alternative universe. It was a nice article to read because it was from an ‘outsider’ or to put it another way ‘not an IBM i user’ and he was waxing lyrical about the platform, briefly explaining the journey from AS/400 to the modern day POWER9 servers.
What caught his eye, well I would say the stability and security of IBM i especially in the era we work and live in with cybercrime, internal and external security attacks being daily concerns, but less of a concern if you are using IBM i properly.
I would hope that readers of PowerWire.eu already know that IBM i is secure, stable and our mini super-hero (reference to the article in eweek), take a look at the article, it is nice to see IBM i getting ‘good press’. https://www.eweek.com/innovation/ibm-i-the-most-amazing-ibm-product-you-ve-never-heard-of
