An IBM i (AS/400) system is one of those systems, which came into existence in the eighties, named as iSeries back then, and still are very relevant and running modern applications as well as applications which were coded on it decades ago. The prime reason for the never fading popularity of IBM i (AS/400) or iSeries is that IBM kept evolving the system with time to keep up with fast -paced business demands and changes. Information technology, mobility, social, Open Source and Analytics are transforming the way IBM i (AS/400) supports the business in today’s date and time. The server is known by names like IBM i (AS/400), iSeries, System i and ‘Power System for IBM i’. From the name iSeries to begin with, with every major enhancement, IBM kept changing the name of the AS/400 Service. Though it is more appropriate to call the server a Power System for IBM i, professionals still keep referring to it as IBM i (AS/400) or iSeries system.
