Why should you know your AS400 completely?(Last Updated On: August 30, 2021)
AS400 was initially introduced by IBM in 1988 and advertised it as a family of easy-to-use software designed for small and mid-sized organizations. At the time of introduction, IBM announced 1,000 software packages, which was the most significant application announcement in computers’ history. By 1997, IBM took the world by storm and shipped almost half-million AS/400s software. Furthermore, by 2000, the AS/400 was replaced by the IBM iSeries. Today, the OS is called IBM I, and the hardware is called Power Systems; many still prefer to call it AS/400 iSeries.
AS400 means “Application System 400”
