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 technology that we call IBM i. It now has been IBM i longer than the old AS/400 name.
The 2022 chapter in our journey from AS/400 to IBM i includes new cloud offerings, new Technology Refreshes, new 7.5 OS level, new i Navigator interface, new customers, and a strong roadmap. How do these additions make the platform more powerful?
