Mainframes and IBM i (AS/400)


While mainframes and IBM i (AS/400) systems remain a strategic asset for several organizations, they must address certain challenges in the modern computing environment. These include a lack of agility, cost inefficiencies, and skills shortage.

Mainframes, leveraging AS400 software, have to be scalable in times of rapid enterprise growth and peak operational loads. A number of firms perceive mainframe maintenance, including that of the AS400, as a cost-intensive process. With the emergence of Cloud-based services, mainframes like AS400 i Series can demand significant capital investments initially. Increasing regulatory requirements has led to complexities in ensuring business continuity. The absence of new generation mainframe technicians who can work on an AS400 system is another hurdle.

However, mainframes, such as the AS400, remain the benchmark of reliability and security in the contemporary landscape. Organizations continue to depend on these systems, including the AS400 system, for heavy-duty data processing.
