A few weeks ago we highlighted some of the predictions that Alex Woodie at IT Jungle had for IBM i this new year. Alex is back with a whole new round of predictions from some of the most prominent people in the community. Here are some of the highlights.

“As IBM i customers adopt more open source technology, taking advantage of the work being done by the IBM i development team together with community members, 2019 will bring continued growth of IBM i — in business results, in excitement around new capabilities, and in a renewed recognition of the value of the entire system – hardware and software.” - Steve Wills, Chief Architect for IBM i
