New White Paper Explores the Long-Term Viability of IBM i

In today's highly digital business landscape, technology is constantly evolving. But does newer always mean better? Especially when it comes to legacy systems like IBM i, the answer isn’t always straightforward.

Originally introduced in 1988 as the AS400, IBM i was designed to be a versatile, user-friendly, reliable system. Its scalability, security, cost-effectiveness, and ability to run legacy applications without modification have made it a mainstay for businesses across various industries for decades.

However, maintaining an IBM i system requires in-depth experience with the RPG programming language. As colleges and universities shift their focus to teaching newer programming languages, RPG programming is becoming an increasingly specialized skill.

Recruiting and managing an in-house RPG team becomes more expensive and complex as the talent pool shrinks. This leaves many companies wondering: Is IBM i still worth the investment?

In our new white paper, The Complete Guide to IBM i, we explore this question by assessing some key use cases for IBM i systems and the challenges — like skills gaps, costs, modernization hurdles, and stakeholder resistance — associated with maintaining them. We also provide strategies for overcoming these obstacles so you can maximize the potential of your IBM i investment. 

Whether your organization is considering switching to a different technology or simply looking to maximize the potential of your current IBM i system, this white paper will equip you with the insight you need to make an informed decision.
