Since its launch in 1986, IBM AIX® has been the platform of choice for organizations around the world in complex, highly regulated industries such as banking, finance, government and healthcare, as well as manufacturing. AIX offers the security and scalability required to run mission-critical applications with exceptional reliability and return on investment. IBM actively supports and develops this platform to ensure it can meet the emerging demands of today’s fast-evolving IT landscape.
Developing a clear picture of exactly how AIX is deployed and the types of initiatives it supports is valuable to the community of IT professionals who work with it every day. The AIX Community Survey, now in its fifth consecutive year, goes in-depth with IT teams to gain a unique perspective into how this platform is being used today and how teams envision using it in the future. Over the years, the respondents of the survey have expanded to include a variety of industries, geographies, and titles within IT. More than 100 IT professionals in North America, EMEA, and APAC participated in this year’s survey, and this input enables all of us to understand the role of AIX with new clarity. This report includes the results of this feedback as well as insights on what it means for the AIX ecosystem.
