Hi Folks,

I just came from GITEX'99 (www.gitex.com <http://www.gitex.com> ) . This one
of the  major IT exhibition  of  the Middle East. Many new products etc.
etc..... Every other company's (Microsoft, Oracle, Novell, Sun etc. etc.)
representation was fabulous except IBM's representation.  First of all
nobody could even notice IBM's banner in the middle of all those Hi-fi ad
banners from Microsoft and others. After a frantic search when I reach
there, I see some guys from IBM who didn't seem to know what was happening.
Any way there was a banking product having e-commerce features which was
meant for the AS400. On specific queries, the gentleman at the counter
politely told me that IBM did not have an AS400 there at the stall. He could
only give me a brief explanation on the banking software. For all queries he
told me that if I visited the IBM Internet site, I can get more information.
He only knew that much. He or nobody else even knew about the latest version
of the AS400. The best joke was when he said that - 'Domino has been a part
of the AS400 ever since the AS400 it was launched'.

I really do not understand why IBM does not take the right initiative to
market its product... and that too such a fabulous product like the AS400.
Is this lack of initiative from IBM specific to the Indian subcontinent ?
Many of us were wondering as to how secure the future will be for people
like us who love the AS400 and want to be working on projects centred around
it !!!!  When will we see the AS400 banners along with others ?????
