Innovate: Smarter Software

leave a comment »

Does your company build software?

If so, you should make sure some of those folks tune in or attend the Rational Innovate software conference starting Sunday down in Orlando.

I got an overview of this event on my weekly team call earlier today, and I’ve been known to blog at some of these events.

And I’m sorry to say I won’t be at Innovate! 

But, they have a great lineup of speakers for this year’s event, including IBM Research Chief Scientist Grady Booch, IBM Senior VP Marketing and Communications Jon Iwata, IBM SWG GM Steve Mills, and special guest speaker and innovation extraordinaire, Dean Kamen (inventor of the Segueway, among many other inventions).

And if you can’t be there live and in person, check out the Rational Innovate LiveStream starting on Monday for some of the keynotes.

And as you’ve come to expect from our friends in the IBM Software Group, we’ll have an all out social media full court press.

To keep up with all the action, follow #ibminnovate on Twitter, and also check out the Rational Events blog.

New Mainframe Products

with one comment

While Google introduces their new Chrome OS (which I’m hearing will be widely available in one year?  Did I mishear that?), IBM announced 10 new products today to help companies using IBM System z mainframe technology.

The new software products help companies lower their application management costs by optimizing their System z mainframes to handle more workloads (vis a vis server consolidation).

One of the unique capabilities of mainframes are they can host many application services on one system, which has helped System z achieve one of the industry’s lowest application costs per user.

Minimal application costs are muy importante for companies which rely on multiple applications to run their business.

The new products include IMS 11, several new products from WebSphere, as well as IBM Problem Determination tools and Rational development tools.

You can visit the IBM Mainframe Web site to learn more.
