Assessing IBM i's Role in Digital Transformation by Alex Woodie

 Every application at one time or another has to go through the assessment of whether it is still viable and useful. Does the application continue to meet the evolving needs of the business or should a new and improved application be brought in to handle the companies needs?

Aging IT systems can give companies pause and lead them to want a more "agile" or "flexible" system. Some call this digital transformation, some call it application modernization. Whatever you call it the goals are always similar: Simplify the underlying code base, improve code maintainability, and make it easier to implement new functions or integrate with outside systems. In Alex's latest piece he dives deep into assessing IBM i's role in this new digital transformation age.

To breakdown the "mystery" surrounding AI you need to consider two elements: the componentry and the process. Identify what is behind it and how it can be adopted.
