Workshop Title:  HelpSystems 2021 IBM i Marketplace
Survey Results
Presented By: Donnie MacColl

IBM i is one of technology’s best-kept secrets, but even it has not escaped the unprecedented change and challenges of last year.


The seventh annual IBM i Marketplace Survey from HelpSystems provides a close look at what IBM i users are doing on this platform—and how Covid-19 has impacted them.


Join Donnie MacColl, Director of EMEA Technical Services at HelpSystems, as he reveals the results of the 2021 survey including:

• What are the biggest challenges presented by Covid-19 and a remote workforce?

• Are more organisations adopting IBM i in the cloud?

• Will cost reductions, cybersecurity, or HADR top the list of most pressing IT concerns? • What does the IBM i development scene look like?

• Are shops expanding their IBM i usage?

• How does IBM i’s ROI compare to other servers?
