The IBM i Challenge White Paper

IBM i (formerly known as System I, i5, iSeries, AS/400, and Application System/400) is a midrange platform produced by IBM. In the ’90s the AS/400 platform became one of IBM’s greatest success stories. A symbiotic relationship between platforms, vendors, and independent software vendors (ISVs) proved to be a critical success factor for both the platform and the application providers. The value propositions of the IBM i platform and the advantage over alternatives, led many enterprises and ISVs to develop vertical applications based on IBM i. Thousands of enterprises and ISVs put their trust and future in this environment. This was the golden age of the platform, and new vertical solutions were created one after the other.
