What is the State of Your IBM i Modernization? by Amanda Blackburn
After turning 30 this year, the IBM i industry has had a year-long celebration with events all over the world. Few platforms ever reach that milestone, and with a roadmap that extends well into the next decade, those who have chosen the IBM i for their business needs have chosen wisely. But that doesn't mean that everyone is completely satisfied with the platform. Some in the IBM i community have invested to modernize their systems and applications, while others have decided to continue to see the platform through a legacy lens by continuing to run their applications via old monolithic 5250 greenscreens.
So how can an IBM i shop craft a modernization plan that enables them to take advantage of the recent technological advances without cutting the ties to the IBM i altogether? It starts with addressing the current state of modernization as a whole in the IBM i community.
