HelpSystems Joins Forces with IBM

August 7, 2017

Faster, faster, must go faster. In order to pick up the pace of IBM i development, Big Blue has enlisted the support of HelpSystems, with the goal of accelerating enhancements to Rational Developer for i, PowerHA System Mirror for i, and Backup, Recovery and Media Services (BRMS) on i. HelpSystems will take the product enhancement development lead, while working with the existing team in Rochester. IBM will continue to integrate and deliver these products into the IBM i operating system.

The transition is under way. Roadmaps are being discussed. IBM and HelpSystems are building the infrastructure and environments required for co-development.
