According to Help System’s 2022 Survey, modernising applications accounts for two of the top 5 concerns of IBM i customers. Business must react quickly to new and fast-changing requirements or lose their competitive advantage.

Our customers tell us that the drive to produce higher quality code in less time is forcing them to rethink their development strategies. The prediction that there will be almost no RPG skills available by 2030 is leaving IT managers quaking in their boots. The acknowledged solution to this problem includes standardising on a common development toolset across all platforms. This is not new, and IBM i development teams have been talking about it for years. With new supporting technologies from DevOps solution vendors, the time has come to stop talking and start acting! But how do you move past the conversation?

Learning Objectives:
• How other IBM i customers are approaching this challenge
• How to evolve your development process into the future whilst still running your business
• How are existing DevOps vendors supporting new technologies?
