Ever wonder how companies harness the massive performance of POWER8 along with the reliability and scalability of IBM i while remaining agile and competitive in a world dominated by mobile, analytics, and cloud? Let's face it, our line of business counterparts are demanding, but for good reason. The ability to quickly deliver innovative technology to the front lines of our businesses can mean the difference between surviving and thriving in our fast-paced economy. In this session we will look at IBM i on IBM Power Systems as it is today, a reliable, scaleable, and modern compute environment. You will find out why some of the most well known brands and biggest organizations on the planet run IBM i and why we don't always hear about it. You will here some of my experiences with flipping organizations who have intentions of moving off the platform, to companies who are innovating on the platform. We will surface the typical objections to modernizing on IBM i and how you can knock those objections through the conference room wall.
