Since the campaign for System i in 2006 and 2007, things have changed dramatically. In 2008, IBM released their Power Systems servers, which can run AIX, IBM i and Linux operating systems. The operating system has been upgraded and its new logo for IBM i is “i for business” - originally, the OS was OS/400, then i5/OS, now IBM i.
To that end, this site is going to focus on reinvigorating the community marketing campaign for IBM i. If you have contributions, send them in. If you have suggestions, send them in. Anything related to IBM i is welcome!

Quote:“The slogan I would like to submit is “The i’s have IT,” which is a play on a well-known phrase (the aye’s have it). There would be a stylized ‘i’ in red, with “IT” in caps as an acronym for Information Technology.

Quote:“I remember a UK IBMer at COMMON years ago who had buttons that read “You don’t need an army to run an AS/400″, which was a marketing campaign that was very successful in the UK. As I remember there were calls to make him head of marketing in the US.
I think we should resurrect that campaign for our efforts. Towards this end I whipped off this little JPEG image (attached). I hope it’ll help.”
