It started as a simple idea…
It started as a simple idea: create an application system for midsized
businesses
.” Frank Soltis, AS/400 Chief Architect, and Steve Will, IBM i
Chief Architect, discuss how integration and investment protection were the
foundation for the industry’s most successful midrange system. This is the
first of a series of videos produced to celebrate the 25th anniversary of
IBM i. Watch the videohttp://power-programsmail.com/53B-1IVD6-9K6XBM-M8B0V-1/c.aspx and join in the conversation by going to the IBM i facebook page http://power-programsmail.com/53B-1IVD6-9K6XBM-M89HG-1/c.aspx

those who have not been so fortunate, we think it’s worth highlighting how

With its focus on small and midsized businesses, IBM i was the pioneer for
channel marketing within IBM. IBM cooperated with business partners on
marketing, sales, support and education. IBM business partners are the

solutions and achieve successful business outcomes. So here’s a big thanks
