IBM’s quantum computing technology, developed over decades, is ready for commercialization. It is a fundamentally different approach to computing than is used in today’s systems – and, as such, represents a watershed in computing history. By allowing scientists and researchers to model the complexities inherent in natural phenomena and financial markets, quantum computing is a new approach to the way in which computing itself is done. It is different than Big Data analytics, which finds patterns in vast amounts of data. Rather, it will generate new types of data characterizing phenomena that couldn’t be quantified before. What began deep in the...

Can IBM Take Machine Learning Mainstream?

Posted by on in IBM
It is clear that Watson, IBM’s cognitive engine, is becoming embedded in just about every tool and application that IBM is selling these days. In its most recent announcement, IBM is now making the Watson Machine Learning (ML) engine available on the mainframe in order to bring machine learning to transactional databases. This ML engine will be available both for on premises use and as a private Cloud implementation. IBM’s announcement had a vast array of capabilities too numerous to mention in a single blog, I would like to mention some of the aspects that I found especially important. The...

IBM Systems’ year-end report to analysts was remarkable in the way that it positioned distributed computing, supporting hybrid cloud and analytics, as an important key to the company’s overall systems strategy. It is also vital for growing installations of IBM hardware and software, and expanding into new accounts. IBM has long been involved in scale-up and scale-out computing, but its brand is often associated with traditional scale-up systems and storage for data centers. This year-end report showed how the portfolio, as a whole, enables distributed computing and scale-out computing, to support hybrid cloud, analytics and cognitive computing. With this approach, IBM’s...

  VMware, known for its software stack for virtualized environments, showed its expanded ecosystem at VMworld 2016 in Las Vegas. It has made a decided effort to reach into mixed-vendor deployments in virtualized x86 infrastructure – and to connect with other vendor’s public clouds, starting with IBM’s SoftLayer. The company with the largest installed base of virtualized x86 infrastructure is moving, in multiple ways, to grow its total available market (TAM), even as its corporate parent, EMC, merges into Dell Technologies. Significantly, it highlighted its connections with open-source technologies that drive many of the cloud computing deployments, both in enterprise data...

IBM’s journey to the cloud has been a complicated process. As an analyst, I have had a bird’s eye view of the evolution of IBM’s cloud strategy. Like many other enterprise technology companies, IBM has had to balance its need to preserve on- premises revenue with its desire to satisfy customers’ demands for cloud services. I recently attended IBM’s cloud analyst summit, where key executives put the evolving IBM cloud strategy into perspective. In the midst of massive changes in technology and customer requirements, Robert LeBlanc, Senior Vice President and leader of the cloud strategy, succinctly stated the overarching strategy:...

In 1995 Sam Palmisano unified all of IBM's software offerings into a single organization called the IBM Software Group. Sam selected a long time executive, Steve Mills to run this large and fragmented organization. It was not an easy job to put it mildly. Each software product organization had its own infrastructure, its own database services, and middleware. These product organizations often competed internally and externally. Steve changed that by forcing these independent organizations to begin using common services. I remember a conversation I had during those early years with Steve where he told me of how difficult it was...

Cloud Services
 As more and more enterprises are moving to cloud services to support mission critical business services the stakes for vendors are growing higher. The conventional wisdom over the past several years is that Amazon Web Services (AWS)– the gorilla in the cloud services market is the most affordable and inevitable leader. Amazon initially built a massive data center to support its own retail operation. It was smart enough to take advantage of the emerging market for offering compute and storage before most customers knew they needed it.  Amazon approached this market in a clever way. The company applied the retail business...

Rethinking the Approach to Fraud

Posted by on in Security
If you think fraud is not your issue, think again; 1 in 13 people will be impacted by fraud. Therefore businesses that hope to maintain the trust of their customers must be able to address fraud in a consistent and predictable way.  If executed well, corporations, government, and non-profits companies need to protect their constituents by being both accountable and prepared. To achieve this aim requires more than simply implementing a set of point solutions, employing individual subject matter expertise, and reviewing an IT governance playbook.  My colleague, Dan Kirsch and I recently attended an IBM meeting where they announced their...
