Participate In The 2023 IBM i Marketplace Survey Discussion
January 23, 2023 Timothy Prickett Morgan
It is late January, that means it is time for a discussion about the results of the 9th annual IBM i Marketplace Survey. The survey is performed by Fortra, formerly known as HelpSystems, and the webinar talking about the results of the survey will be held on January 26 at 10 AM Eastern.
You can sign up for the webinar at this link, which is free and which will last for an hour. Among the many topics that will be covered are:
- Power10 adoption and future plans
- How organizations continue to support remote workforces
- The trend towards higher adoption of Rational Developer for i
- The shift from hybrid, to more cloud-based environments
- Top concerns when planning IT environments with IBM i
As usual, Tom Huntington, executive vice president of technical solutions at Fortra, will be moderating the webinar as well as providing his own insights. Participants include: Brandon Pederson, worldwide IBM i product marketing manager; Dan Sundt, IBM i product manager; and Steve Will, chief technology officer for IBM i. We thought that Alison Butterill, IBM i product manager, was going to take part in the discussion as well, based on the landing page for the webinar signup, but apparently not. Your faithful co-editor of The Four Hundred here will also attend.
For those of you who took part in the survey – a magic number of 400 of you did last autumn – we give our thanks. This survey, which was conceived of by the late Dan Burger of IT Jungle and Tom Huntington of HelpSystems, was started nine years ago because we were all frustrated by the lack of insight about the IBM i base. The data that is gathered is invaluable, and long-time readers of The Four Hundred know full well that we use this information to build models that, we think, more accurately reflect what is going on in the base.
We appreciate you, and we look forward to you tuning in to the webinar.
