An excerpt of the conversation:
Becky Hjellming: What other themes are you hearing when you work with IT groups that are managing IBM i servers?

Craig Johnson: I’m definitely seeing a lot of trends this year in terms of skillset shortages, leveraging managed services or clouds, and upgrades (that’s always there). There is a lot of virtualization being deployed today among customers using Power Systems that really have improved. IBM has really done a lot in the virtualization space, in terms of virtualizing partitions and storage and memory. So, certainly a lot of changes, and a lot of challenges as a result of that, for IT directors and the application development teams.
