The push for AS/400 Modernization.
Let’s take a step back and take a high-level view and ask:
Who is driving Modernization and why?
Watch this short 4-minute video (and text) from the CTO of Deloitte, Bill Briggs. It paints an interesting picture of IT in the Enterprise.
He is right. The role of IT and Business have merged.
The one thing that everybody agrees on is from a technology perspective is that more change is coming.
For years, IT has always had the philosophy that we have to speak the language of the business but now,
We’re at this interesting point in time where we’re flipping it into … business has to be tech savvy in a way they haven’t had to before.
This brings a different dynamic into play. The business, today, understands technology, how it works and what it can do. In many cases “the business” is more forward-thinking than IT.
This is, at the core, why there is a push for modernization and it is not going to slow down.
As an IBM i community, we have to embrace the change and learn as much as we can about new technologies that are being implemented at the enterprise level. Then partner with the business to demonstrate that the IBM i platform can provide the solutions they are looking for.
Legacy systems are not irrelevant in digital transformation. In fact, the data in them becomes your competitive advantage.
