[Webinar] 4-part Webinar series: Step-by-step IBM i Modernization – database, code, UI

Much has been said about the pros and cons of Modernization vs. Migration.

Our Webinar takes a practical look at what automation can achieve in a real world modernization project.

Whether you are planning an end-to-end modernization project, or modernizing phase by phase, there are ways to make the job easier, and safer.

Using customer case studies, we examine the do’s and don’ts of automation in each aspect of IBM i modernization, in 4 dedicated sessions:
