Feature Article - Analysis
In the Wheelhouse: Connect, Kenexa, Connections, and Hey, Is That a Watson in Your Pocket?

This week, we'll cover the state of Lotusphere, the meteoric rise of IBM Connections, and not too far off in a distant pocket, IBM Watson 2.0.

steve pitcherWritten by Steve Pitcher

After 19 years, Lotusphere as a full conference is no more. The place to be in January for all things Lotus, collaboration, social, and more is IBM Connect 2013 in Orlando, Florida, from January 2731, 2013.


Some are bemoaning "yet another IBM name change." Yes, IBM tends to rebrand things from time to time. I'm not going to tackle that one. Some people just need to get over it.

Given how the dependence of enterprises on their computer systems is doing nothing but growing, it follows that the importance of monitoring the performance of those systems is increasing too. Particularly in 24/7 operations environments, maximizing throughput for business systems can be key to productivity and, by extension, profitability.

Partner TechTip: Collecting Your Hidden Performance Data

Get continuous performance data without major overhead.

tom huntingtonWritten by Tom Huntington

Does your team often get surprised by end users calling to complain about performance problems? Have you ever not had the details needed to see what was causing a performance problem? Are you struggling with a proactive approach to managing performance? Do you have someone manually documenting WRKSYSSTS or WRKDSKSTS output?
