I believe we will find the AS/400 to experience continued growth in 
many different areas.  Since the introduction of the AS/400, I have 
had the opportunity to migrate mainframe systems to the AS/400.  
Not in every case, but those Fortune 500 (conservative) organizations 
15 years ago that took the wait and see approach, have most recently 
moved to the AS/400.  There is still a market for wise IS Managers to 
re-evaluate their mainframe environments, reduce IS budgets and move 
to the AS/400.  The power of the AS/400 has overlapped the power of 
the mainframe for years.  I expect this trend to continue.  The 
AS/400 creates opportunity for businesses to consolidate or 
distribute processing power.  There are plenty of applications that 
run on this platform to solve virtually every business requirement.  
Most of all, as businesses continue to grow, High Availability of the 
AS/400 has improved significantly over the last 16 years.  I am 
familiar with several organizations that have moved their PC Network 
platforms to the AS/400 for just that reason.  To make a very long 
story short, because I could go on all day...  It just makes good 
business sense...

Hi all,

I am doing an article on the future of the AS/400 (you know, end of year
prognostications and all).  I thought I would query you folks to see what
you think is the real (not wished) future of the 400, its technology, IBM's
future with it, development platforms, etc.  Just shoot anything you think
worth while.

Thanks

John
