Creating business agility with IBM Power


IBM i is one of three operating systems that run on IBM Power®. At its core, the IBM i platform is designed to adapt to the ever-changing needs of both business and computing. Its defining characteristic, the “integration” represented by the “i” in IBM i, can help you gain more value from advanced technology with fewer resources and higher reliability.


Flexible licensing and support options

Run software licensing and support in 1-to-5 year terms with an IBM i subscription. Keep technology current, lower TCA, and increase flexibility with OpEx consumption.

Modernize application development

IBM i Modernization Engine for Lifecycle Integration is a set of tools that run in Red Hat® OpenShift® containers to guide and assist software developers in the modernization of IBM i applications.

Add value to business apps

IBM i 7.5 simplifies security and availability with Db2 for i integration, new options and tools, so you can focus on adding value to business applications instead of infrastructure availability.

Client success

Financial services software company FNZ accelerated their testing processes 15x with IBM i in the cloud on Power Virtual Server.
