The IBM i can (and should) be your platform for the future!

Learn how you can lead the way with your IBM i by combining the latest technology and Open Source with the proven power, reliability and security of the IBM i.

In this session we will discuss how your organization can open up your IBM i to the amazing new Open Source options the rest of IT has: Easily connect your IBM i to web, mobile and IOT applications and interfaces.

Add Open Source tools like Git and Jenkins to your DevOps systems. Modernize your codebase and attract young developers with modern Open Source languages like Node.js and Python.

Save money and increase productivity by moving IBM i workloads to true Cloud providers, and finally, live in a world of portable applications that can run on every platform.

It’s not hard, and these options require a fraction of the investment of ‘big bang’ conversions to new platforms and represent significantly lower risk. You will leave equipped to show your business users that new experiences and modern functions are available today on your IBM i.
