25 years of IBM i (or AS/400)

Twenty-five years ago, at Rochester, Minnesota, the last details for the presentation of IBM Application System 400, also known as AS/400, were being finalized at IBM’s offices. This launch would allow small and medium enterprises to have hundreds of exclusive applications available for each industry on one single platform.

Later, this successful system expanded across the globe, and changed its name into what we now know as the IBM i platform.

In those days, Tango/04 decided to join IBM through the best monitoring technology on the market for AS/400, and has followed the growth of its community since then. That’s why for this anniversary, we’d like to share with you an exclusive piece of material: the audio from the conference that Frank Soltis, IBM i Technology head, gave in 2008, where he reviews the past and reveals the future of this successful platform.

Soltis Webinar

It’s calculated that more than 100 thousand companies worldwide use these systems, and it is in South America, Europe and Asia where the biggest concentration of IBM i servers is found. The usage of this technology is extensive in the banking and financial services industry, where Tango/04 has consolidated its leadership with specific peak-performing management and security solutions.

Today, 25 years after its release, we continue accompanying the successful evolution of this platform with our new iSeries Knowledge Module, a full monitoring surrounding that provides modern and agile availability and performance management, aligned with business and IBM I systems and applications.

We bring you this unique document, which was one of the last public appearances that the father of AS/400 made before retiring.

Congratulations IBM i!
