Latest IBM i roadmap

august 2021 ibm i roadmap from ibm1

I just want to show the latest roadmap for IBM i. It shows how IBM has plans for the operating system we love beyond 2031 with the next two planned releases.

It also shows the extended support for releases 7.1 and 7.2, identified as SE1 for 7.1 and SE for 7.2 .

If you are using 7.1 or 7.2 I would seriously consider moving to the latest release supported by your Power server. There have been a lot of security upgrades in later releases, not having these could leave your IBM i partitions vulnerable to hacking or malware attacks.

Feel free to share this with any IBM i nay-sayers who tell you that this operating system and server are "dead".

  1. The rumors of the death of the IBMi are to be ignored. In a few years, this system will probably go all the way to the Cloud, and there will continue to be incredibly reliable and efficient. IBM Grade.
