  • Welcome to Day 1 of the 2018 ECC Conference

    In this post, I am sharing with you the complete program for Day 1 of the 10th Annual Enterprise Computing Community Conference. I am also including my notes in the form of a brief description for the sessions that I attended, including both the keynote and different concurrent sessions. The sessions on Monday were interesting and useful—certainly among the best you can experience from a technology conference.

    The 2018 ECC Conference Is Over, but it’s Still On My Mind

    For the fourth year in a row, I had a chance to fly to New York, take to train to Poughkeepsie and then a cab to Marist College for the 10th Annual Enterprise Computing Community Conference. The event was vibrant for so many reasons. The conference started Sunday evening with a reception at the Marist College Historic Cornell Boathouse. There were interesting keynote speakers, solid technical presentations, demonstrations and student and academic panel discussions on Monday and Tuesday. In addition to these conference activities, other matters made an impression. Let me explain.

    Another Favorite Thing: Programming Languages

    This is the second post about what I would characterizes as “a few of my favorite things,” like the lyrics in the movie—you know the one. Last week, I wrote about “the machine.” Let me continue this week with programming languages. The importance of computer languages is now well-understood and appreciated as applications happen because programmers write code to create them. More than 18.2 million programmers  are writing code today.

    Some Favorite Things: The Evolution of IBM Z

    This is the first of a few planned posts about what I would characterizes as “a few of my favorite things” like the lyric in the movie—you know which one. I am looking back over the last 40 years and I see at least four areas in IT where the impact of a certain kind of computing technology has had a huge impact on the industry and the world that it supports. Let me start with the machine.

    Three Rs in Context

    In this post, I finish up this series on the three Rs. In the first post in this series, I asked, “Is there a model that will help us analyze and begin to address difficult obstacles regarding needed change, expansion of method or complexity?” The model I proposed involved three Rs: renew, refresh and rework.

    IT Change and Rework

    In this post, I concentrate on the times when rework is needed. It could be to fix something that was not done correctly or to make a modification to an existing solution to enhance its usefulness. As you know, rework is not always so black and white, fix or enhancement.

    A Focus on Refresh

    In this post, I concentrate on approaches and tactics to refresh aspects of a computing portfolio. In the first post in this series, I asked, “Is there a model that will help us analyze and begin to address difficult obstacles regarding needed change, expansion of method or complexity?” The model I proposed involved three Rs: renew, refresh and rework. Last week , we explored renew, now let’s consider refresh using an example featuring Java.
