IBM Watson Health is putting data to work for all of us to define new paths to better health.

It was almost five years ago that IBM Watson captured the attention of both techies and non-techies alike when it competed and won against human contestants on the Jeopardy! TV game show. The ability for a computer system to quickly understand and answer trivia questions in natural language was impressive, but the immediate question was: how will this technology be applied to industries that are being inundated with information?

Much can be deduced from community feedback if you go looking for it.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

Last week, HelpSystems released their second annual IBM i Marketplace Survey report. This year, 834 people completed the survey, compared to 344 the year before. What I like about this survey is that it highlights what our peers in other organizations are doing with their systems. This is important because I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets asked a couple of times a month questions like these:

Once upon a time, we used to have to do more with less, but that doesn't work here anymore.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

Over the last few months, I've been digging into what IBM has been investing their time on: Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, Social, and Security, also known as CAMSS.

 

Joining me this week to talk about social is IBM's Tim Rowe, Business Architect – Application Development and Systems Management for IBM i, to talk about social. Tim's team makes certain that IBM i has the features it needs to allow their customers and ISVs to write modern applications and to be able to properly manage them.

Your business may be benefitting from CAMSS without even knowing it.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

In my upcoming "In the Wheelhouse" articles for the rest of this year, I'll be digging into what much of IBM has been investing its time on: Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, Social, and Security, also known as CAMSS.

 

I recently sat down with IBM's Terri Vernig, Vice President of POWER Strategy and Ecosystem, and Steve Will, Chief Architect for the IBM i operating system, in order to set the stage about what CAMSS is, why it's IBM's focus, and what it means to Power Systems, the IBM i operating system, and their respective communities.

Everyone is moving to the cloud, right? Don't be too sure.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

IBM has been talking a lot about CAMSS in the last few years, meaning Cloud, Analytics, Mobile, Social, and Security. Many of IBM's decisions are now based on if they fit the CAMSS model. In short, if it doesn't have anything to do with CAMSS, then it's probably going to be competing hard for budget dollars within IBM.

In the Wheelhouse: Thoughts on IBM's Latest Resource Action PDF Print E-mail
Analysis - Analysis of News Events

There is no upside or silver lining when good people lose their jobs.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

On January 19, Forbes contributor Robert X. Cringely wrote a piece on a forthcoming "hell week" in which IBM would begin a 26% "resource action" (RA) that would cost potentially 110,000 employees their jobs. This downsizing is called Project Chrome.

 

IBM Hong Kong's blog stated on January 26 that "IBM does not comment on rumors or speculation. However, we'll make an exception when the speculation is stupid. That's the case here, where an industry gadfly is trying to make noise about how IBM is about to lay off 26 percent of its workforce. That's over 100,000 people, which is totally ludicrous.

In the Wheelhouse: IBM Verse Leaves Many Questions PDF Print E-mail

Last week, IBM unveiled IBM Verse, formerly IBM Mail Next. Although impressive, we still need clarification of plan.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

I've written about IBM Mail Next before. The last few weeks featured a major buildup to two web conferences. The first webcast appeared geared for analysts, and the second was something else entirely, featuring a panel discussion about the state of email and how IBM's vision of it would ultimately make end users' lives much better by adding predictive analytics.
