IBM i IN THE DATA CENTER:
Here are some amazing graphs showing trends on data centers over 2022 and prior years.
Amazing that 73% of IBM i users said they were ready to upgrade to the Power 10! From Arbor’s experience so far in quoting our customers, it has been common that the Power 10 has come in with more affordable total solutions than purchases of year’s past. It’s no wonder that organizations are prioritizing room in their 2023 budget.
Here is a quick look at how businesses are developing on the IBM i:
A reminder for those with upcoming projects this year: Arbor Solutions offers exceptionally strong development services in both the Intel/Microsoft, and IBM Power Systems environments, including RPG, SQL, CLP, Java, PHP, Python, among other programming languages.
And the biggest takeaway that we found when looking over this survey was:
An incredible 94% of polled customers said that they believe their IBM i not only has a high return of investment, but that it has a better ROI than other servers!
