About this webinar:
IBM’s AS/400 series, launched in 1988, and better known these days as IBM i, has had a long and storied history. Three decades of continuous use mean that many enterprises working with IBM i have highly tailored and tightly bound business critical apps that are at the heart of operational workflows.
There are challenges on the horizon in modernisation and optimisation, cost management with the ever decreasing IT budget that has also been impacted by this year’s pandemic with high IT spend to enable remote working and business continuity.
And the undeniable emerging skills gap - the number of highly skilled staff able to develop and support IBM i is falling. It’s tougher to recruit, and many top engineers are approaching retirement age – leaving enterprises with a challenge in terms of how they will execute change and support applications over the long – or even short - term.
Join us as our expert panel discusses the way forward with IBM i and we unveil exclusive research into current challenges.
