Also, companies that stay on previous and outdated versions of IBM i can expose themselves to cyber-threats, security risksand even integration issues. Many companies lack the skilled staff to implement new technology into their systems without causing disruptions of their on-going business operations. To this end, iTech Solutions Group is using their expertise to help firms optimize the performance and utilization of their IBM i OS and Power Systems hardware. “A lot of times when we're working with a CIO and they want to bring in new technology but their staff doesn't have the skills, we can augment and supplement those skills as well as provide knowledge transfer. So we can implement the new technology for them and train their staff on using it,” states President of iTech Solutions Group, Pete Massiello.
