Re: Budgeting to replace V5R4



fixed

"in interest of full disclosure..."
We have been on 7.1 since March 2011,
We went to 6.1 from v5r4 on December 2009.

When we started the upgrade project from v5r4 to 6.1 in August 2009,
any vendor who wasn't ready was made a "non-vendor" (there was only 1).
We drug our feet mainly out of fear of the unknown... we didn't really
know what our problems with conversion would be.

I agree. V5R4 was the longest supported release in history. Much longer
than the last CISC release - V3R2. That had to have been harder, because
it was definitely a hardware upgrade also.

Yes a few bad vendors are dragging us down. Who are they? Please don't
feel embarrassed that you put up with this crap from your vendor.
