The Internet of Unprotected Things

Security be damned, all in the name of progress.

Today I was able to find a number of IBM i partitions that were live on the Internet with open ports for FTP and Telnet.


I must be one heck of a detective to dig up these open doors, right? How could I tell they were IBM i partitions? How did I find them?

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?

2015 Guide to Manufacturing Software

2015 manufacturing outlook—optimism, expansion, and hurdles.

Written by Infor

Editor's note: This article introduces the white paper "2015 Guide to Manufacturing Software" available free at the MC White Paper Center.

For all manufacturing industries, growth remains top of mind. Post-recession cautiousness has given way to confidence and more ambitious business goals. From automotive to fashion, more manufacturing leaders are ready to take bigger risks in the hopes of bigger payoffs, and optimism is the highest it's been in years.

Recent studies show that 44% of automotive CEOs believe the global economy is improving (nearly three times the previous year's figure), while the same percentage of UK manufacturers expect increased growth in the coming months.
