AS400 / iSeries Support & Maintenance
Looking for technical support for your AS400 systems? With outdated variations no longer supported by IBM, finding help with day to day technical issues of your AS400 systems can become a burden on your team. Let the experts at Absolute Performance, Inc. provide the peace of mind that comes with round the clock technical support.

Our expert engineers have been working with IBM legacy solutions for over 20 years and are able to provide a variety of support options to meet your business needs.
What Is AS400?
AS400 – also known as AS/400, iSeries, IBM Legacy, IBM i, eServer, or System i – forms the foundation of some of the most powerful servers and operating systems in the market. Over 100,000 companies worldwide use AS400 as the technology powers their most critical applications. Due to its scalability, security, reliability, compatibility, and opportunity for modernization, AS400 / iSeries remains one of the most powerful operating systems on the market today.
What Industries Utilize AS400?
To this day, AS400 is one of the most efficient operating systems for processing large unique data entities – most commonly seen in computer software, finance, retail, manufacturing, hospitals and other industries requiring large inventory systems or complex data variations. Because of the sheer volume of data managed, the complexity of the data involved, and the effectiveness and adaptability of AS400 to process this data – very few users indicate any intent to move away from the platform.
Why Do You Need AS400 Support?
As IBM releases new upgrades of the AS400 / IBM i software, they subsequently discontinue support of older versions. What this means for businesses still running versions prior to P7 is that you have to rely on either in-house talent for your technical support, find a third party to provide your technical support, or upgrade to the latest version of AS400 to receive support directly from IBM. As a large amount of qualified AS400 engineers are reaching the age of retirement and the talent pool of individuals able to support older versions of this platform is shrinking, the need to find reliable expert support for your AS400 systems is critical to keeping your systems functional.
