True or False: The IBM i operating system is just the AS/400 all over again. False!
The AS/400 provided a solid foundation, but it has evolved over the years into the entirely new animal that we call IBM i.

So, what was there at the beginning and which architectural elements have been added? How do these additions make the platform more powerful? How does cognitive computing come into play?

Back by popular demand, IBM i Chief Architect Steve Will joins IBM Power Champion Tom Huntington to share a unique perspective on the direction of this platform, including:

  • IBM i development strategies in progress at IBM
  • Ways that Watson will shake hands with IBM i
  • Key takeaways from the AS/400 days
IBM i stands on the shoulders of giants. Its AS/400 heritage and strategic innovation point to a bright future for this strategic server that continues to support organizations in every industry around the world. Don’t miss a moment as the saga unfolds!
