In the Wheelhouse: An IBM i Success Story That Needed to Be Told

This week, I feel compelled to dissect a great IBM i customer success story. Plus, I'll fill you in about a new smartphone app for managing your IBM i.

Steve Will, the Chief Architect for IBM i, has a great blog called You and i. Last week, Steve told a great story about a company in Japan called Nishii Paint Industry Co. Ltd. that had 20-year-old Visual Basic applications that needed to be rewritten and an NEC PC server running sales and warehouse systems that needed replacement. One of the major requirements was that the next solution they had wouldn't have to be, among other things, recompiled when hardware or operating systems got updated. They investigated numerous big-name vendors before settling on a cloud-based IBM Power Systems 720 running IBM i and a solution built with a backbone of rock-solid RPG and a PHP front-end.
