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.

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?

FEATURED WEBCAST

The Top Five RPG Open Access Myths....BUSTED!

When it comes to IBM Rational Open Access: RPG Edition (also known as RPG Open Access), there are still many misconceptions - especially where application modernization is concerned!

In this Webinar, we'll address some of the biggest myths about RPG Open Access, including:

  • Modernizing with RPG OA requires significant changes to the source code
  • The RPG language is outdated and impractical for modernizing applications
  • Modernizing with RPG OA is the equivalent to "screen scraping"

This Webinar features IBM i expert Alison Butterill, and Profound Logic’s Brian May and Alex Roytman.
