AS/400 Services


AS/400 systems are one of those systems, which came into existence in eighties and still are very relevant and running modern applications as well as applications which were coded on it decades ago. The prime reason for this system’s never fading popularity is that IBM kept evolving the system with time to keep up with fast paced business demands and changes that Information technology, mobility, social, Open Source and Analytics is bringing in the way it supports the business in today’s date and time. With every major enhancement, IBM kept changing the system’s name. So the server is known as AS/400, i-Series, System i and ‘Power System for IBM i’ names.

Though it is more appropriate to call this server as Power System for IBM i, which is the new name of this server, however professionals still keep referring this platform as AS/400 system, which is by far the most popular name of this platform.

HCL has a well-established AS/400 (Power System for IBM i) practice with skilled System admin resources managing complex and highly regulated AS/400 environment for multiple customers from various verticals such as Pharmaceutical, Manufacturing, Retail, Logistics, Media and Entertainment, Banking, Finance/Insurance etc.
