The Internet of Everything

Internet of Things is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, The Internet of Everything, however, also includes user-generated communications and interactions associated with the global entirety of networked devices. Basically, the IoE is the intelligent connection of people, process, data, and things. The IoE describes a world where billions of objects have sensors to detect, measure, and assess their status; all connected over public or private networks using standard and proprietary protocols.

What Are Microservices?

What Are Microservices? Most of the functions for the two applications were pretty similar, and so the programmer would look at his old program and copy the bits that he needed for the new program and re-use them. And that idea gets us quite a long way towards describing microservices. The big difference is that, nowadays, the first application would be broken down into discrete components called microservices. And the new program would re-use the microservice that already existed.

The Who, What, Where, When, and Why for Mainframe Security

For most people, security is a bit of a nuisance.  Appreciating just how much a breach is going to cost makes finding out all the details about the breach even more pressing. So, what are you going to do? The great thing about a mainframe is that SMF (System Management Facility) data will tell you pretty much everything that has occurred. The only problem is that there are lots and lots of records to look through. Is it only one program that has been modified?

Joining the API economy

The great thing about using z/OS Connect EE is that developers can access most mainframe assets from a single product. It also makes it easy for mainframes to join in the API economy. And the developers that you use, can access mainframe APIs without needing to know very much about mainframes. They can treat the mainframe like any other server. Making the best use you can of existing applications and data by making them available as APIs and then developing new applications to meet a need of customers and potential customers.
