IBM i: The Most Amazing IBM Product We Have Heard Of


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.

I would hope that readers of 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’.
