All good things must come to an end. On April 30, 2018, IBM will end support for IBM i V7R1.
For those organizations still using these versions of the popular operating system, be aware that you could incur considerable charges if you need support after April 30th. IBM will continue supporting users through an extended support option, but it will come at additional costs over existing software support charges.
Upgrade to IBM System i V7R2 or V7R3 before the April 30th deadline is recommended in order to eliminate the potential for these additional costs.
You will also leverage the latest benefits of this operating system to enable new levels of flexibility, security, scalability and efficiency.
As an IBM Platinum Business Partner, EASI can assist you with migrating to the next version and avoiding these support costs.
If you have any further questions, please contact EASI via firstname.lastname@example.org or call your sales engineer.
