IBM i applications run businesses around the world. They have tremendous value today, and need to be prepared to use today’s latest technology to solve business problems for tomorrow. How should those applications grow into their Next Gen versions? In this session, Steve Will, IBM i CTO and Chief Architect, will discuss what this means, and talk about approaches and technology which can help clients and IBM i software developers move into that Next Generation Future.

3. Understand the patterns, approaches, and tools available to move applications to the Next Generation.
