On the cusp of the expected IBM i 7.2 announcement, IBM announces IBM i 7.1 Technology Refresh 8, which contains updates for hardware, DB2, the Integrated Application Server, and specifically IBM i HTTP Administration.
Written by Steve Pitcher
While it's the last bullet point of the entire TR8 announcement, don't think that the Integrated Application Server on IBM i 7.1 now being based on the WebSphere Application Server 8.5 Liberty Profile is a less-important announcement than the others. Liberty is an ultra-lightweight and dynamic application server environment that allows applications to run with bare minimum support from the underlying Java architecture. In layman's terms, when a Liberty application runs, it loads only what it needs to do the job at hand and then loads anything else it needs on-demand.
Big Data is big buzz these days, but has this new IT fad really made it to the IBM i? Reports from business intelligence (BI) software vendors are trending toward "not so much."

To many, the idea that "if accurate data is good, large volumes of accurate data is better" is a self-confirming truism. At the very least, that sentiment is a driving factor behind Big Data's popularity as a concept. You need look no further than IBM's own Big Data page to see how its boosters view the idea.

In February, the National Institute of Standards and Technology released a set of voluntary guidelines called the Cybersecurity Framework. The document is designed to help organizations in sectors such as finance, healthcare, and government services manage risks to critical infrastructure more consistently.
Compiled with significant input from the private sector, the Cybersecurity Framework isn’t a prescriptive compliance document and instead gives companies significant leeway in how they use it to inform their security strategies. As a relatively new source of guidance, its implications for regulated industries aren’t clear yet. However, it could spark interest in measures such as cyberinsurance that only make sense to implement when stakeholders have a good grasp of the kinds of risk they face.
