AS400/IBMi – Modernization as a Service
Make systems, people, and processes future-ready!

One of the major challenges today, for AS400/IBMi enterprises, is to ensure that business processes and IT evolution are in sync. Legacy programming languages and hardware add to the operational inflexibility, which clubbed with resource crunch and increasing maintenance costs, pose a business continuity risk. Therefore, CIOs need to chalk out modernization strategies that make business and economic sense to their IT context.

We have to dare to modernize to get room to maneuver for the priorities in the future

- Erna Solberg
