The Application System/400™ (AS/400™) is IBM'S new generation of midrange computers. Incorporating many characteristics of the System/36 and System/38, the AS/400 has more power and capability than those predecessors. In this issue, the first six papers provide technical information on the design and structure of the AS/400 and show how IBM Business Partners and the user community performed a vital role in its development. We are indebted to G. R. Falkowski and M. E. Gauthier of IBM Application Business Systems in Rochester, Minnesota, for their contributions to the inception and formation of these six articles.
