Eye on the i World: The i as the Center of a Multiplatform Ecosystem

While some look on the plateauing of the IBM i market as a sign of imminent decline, others see it as the harbinger of a leaner and meaner environment headed for new greatness.

john gristWritten by John Ghrist

When some fans of the IBM i get to talking about the platform's future as compared to its past, it's almost too easy to be pessimistic. The massive consolidation among software vendors of the recent years, the aging of the baby boomer core of technical experts, and IBM's apparent shift of attention to its Watson platform are just a few of the signposts of fears that the platform is now simply coasting downhill.
