Stop viewing IBM i as an impenetrable fortress. It’s not.
Written by Steve Pitcher
In one week, I’ll be speaking at the 2017 COMMON Annual Meeting and Expo, where I’ll be presenting a session called "IBM i and our False Sense of Security." I’ve done this session a couple of times now, and what I really try to go for is to strike sheer terror into the hearts and minds of audience members.
That’s right. Sheer terror in the form of a reality check that their systems are likely not as secure as they believe.

Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) change management refers to a set of guidelines and processes for managing changes in IT services. The guidelines allow businesses to make changes without affecting the customer’s experience. They not only reduce the chances of implementing changes without direction, but also allow IT professionals to prioritize changes according to the needs of the business. This is particularly important for companies running on cloud infrastructures because change happens all time.
