Power i (AS/400) Optimized Infrastructure

Why IBM Power Systems?

Mobile, cloud, big data and analytics are redefining how we do business.
The world’s leading organizations are leveraging this paradigm shift to:

  • Deepen relationships with customers and partners
  • Drive new efficiencies
  • Expand business models

Leverage systems that optimize big data and analytics performance.

Power Systems are designed for big data (from operational and computational to analytics and cognitive solutions such as Watson), optimized for performance and scalable to support demanding and growing workloads. Capitalize on the currency of data by finding business insights faster and more efficiently. Gain the elasticity you need to handle the various analytics initiatives your business requires.

Power Systems are known for high-availability and processing power, which makes them ideal for workloads that are:

  • CPU-intensive
  • Transaction-intensive
  • Mission-critical

You may have heard that the IBM i (AS/400) is an outdated technology that you will want to migrate away from, but don’t let the competitors steer you in the wrong direction! IBM has a strong road map and support for the foreseeable future. Not to mention, it still has the best total cost of ownership (TCO) on the market today.

Today, Power Systems with IBM i (AS/400) are also being used for a wide range of modern business functionality such as Web applications, BI, and CRM.

Still not convinced, looking to switch to IBM Power i (AS/400) or looking to upgrade your older box?

Migrating off the iSeries/IBM i (AS/400) platform is not a good option for many companies, and the market stats show that! Able-One Systems sees this because of complexity, integration, and cost.

Many of the perceived challenges, such as application integration and mobility constraints, are not valid for most organizations running the IBM i (AS/400). If you are not convinced, check out our Digital Transformation section
