One of the attendees in the IBM i track of the ZendCon conference last month expressed frustration in building PHP Web applications when it came to mastering elements handled by JavaScript, HTML, CSS3, and other art forms. Using various tools, frameworks, and IDEs allowed his team back home to get just so far, he said. Then things started to slow down.

Partner TechTip: Don't Let Security Events Occur Unnoticed!

However, it's a critical process that every organization should perform to ensure that unauthorized activities don't occur unnoticed. Typically, there are two main issues with monitoring a system manually: 1) you have to deliberately (and repeatedly) check to see if something has happened, and 2) you are probably looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack of logged events.
