Happy 2017

Another new year is upon us and I am filled with excitement with what it will bring us all, and gratitude for what 2016 brought us too.

It is a truly exciting time to be involved with IBM's PowerSystems servers and the IBM i operation system. In my opinion the highlights of 2016 were:

And what will happen this year?

  • PowerSystems servers with the Power9 chip?
  • New TRs for 7.3 and 7.2? I think it unlikely that there will be a new release this year, now wait IBM to prove me wrong.
  • Lots of cool stuff added to SQL and RPG?

What would you like to happen this year?

We also have the following anniversaries this year:

Let's raise a glass of our favorite beverage and make a toast to give thanks for IBM i and to all the good things that happened to it last year. Then raise a second glass in anticipation of what 2017 will bring.
