  • A Look at the IBM Dallas ISV Center Offerings

    This post is the second is a series on ISVs, service providers, the Dallas ISV Center offerings, PartnerWorld and the IBM Global Solutions Directory. As I wrote last week, the context for these topics is primarily IBM Z although the topics and solutions directory offerings discussed could be much broader than that. This week, I want to focus on the IBM Dallas ISV Center Offerings.

    ISVs, Service Providers and IBM Z

    This post is the first in a series that discusses ISVs, service providers, the Dallas ISV Center offerings, PartnerWorld and the IBM Global Solutions Directory. The context for these topics is primarily IBM Z. Although the topics and offerings (in the solutions directory) are much broader than IBM Z, I purposely want to narrow my focus. Let’s get started!

    A Look Into the Powerful Capabilities of IBM Cloud Private and IBM Cloud Automation Manager

    This post is the second of two posts that have a specific focus on cloud automation with IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper II as it’s an IBM Z product built for cloud. Last week, I set the groundwork for the IBM Cloud Private (ICP)  discussion with a review of the IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper II announcement from 2018. One main focus of the post was the powerful virtualization technology that it supports as virtualization is such a key dimension of cloud computing.

    What About Cloud Automation?

    This post is part of the series that I have been developing about automation on IBM Z. Up to this point, my posts have been about system, network and application automation on z/OS. This post is the first of two posts that have a specific focus on automation with IBM LinuxONE Rockhopper II as it’s a Z product built for cloud.

    What About Application Automation?

    This post is part of the series that I have been developing about automation on IBM Z. You might say that I have been working my way up the software stack through system, network and middleware. This week, I continue the discussion with a focus on application automation.

    Automation by Function and Layers

    Last week, I started a new series on automation, beginning with a focus on IBM Z Service Automation Suite (tagline: “automate and control a large range of system elements spanning both the hardware and software resources of enterprises in a sysplex”). This week, I am going to refine the discussion and move up the software stack. Before I do that, let me discuss systems management and automation concepts and history.

    A Journey Through Automation on IBM Z

    Some time has passed since I took a close look at automation at the system level on IBM Z. In full disclosure, I once made a living automating mainframe operations. After doing some research, I was excited to find IBM Z Service Automation Suite. Its tagline is “automate and control a large range of system elements spanning both the hardware and software resources of enterprises in a sysplex.” This is a good starting point for a new series on automation in IBM Z from system to application. Let me get started.

    Journey from Idea to Practice: Internetworking and Protocols

    Last week, I wrote about OLTP and Java. Both are important software that has moved forward at different paces and trajectories, yet both are projected to continue in a strong way into the future. This week, I’ll focus on internetworking and protocols like HTTP, as well as APIs and representational state transfer, SOAP and XML.

    Journey from Idea to Practice: OLTP and Java

    Last week, I wrote about computing architectures as well as the emergence of Linux. These are two important implementations of IT that continue to move forward and evolve. Computer architectures and the elements that are part of its growth and change are both interesting and very detailed by nature. This week, I’ll focus on online transaction processing (OLTP) and the Java programming language.

    Journey from Idea to Practice: Computer Architecture and Linux

    Last week, I wrote about web hosting and breaking up the monolith. These are two big ideas that moved forward (or are moving forward) at different rates of adoption. One peaked and the other is heading for it rapidly. This week, I’ll focus on computing architectures and the emergence of Linux.
