  • Saving my history – it’s needlessly complex

    12 Nov 2014 | 10:07 am
    In 2004-05, my IBM colleague Sara Moulton Reger and I wrote a series of articles about “Needless Complexity” for IBM’s “Think Research” site as part of our work at Almaden Services Research. The articles are no longer available on “Think Research”, so I’m reposting them here as a single PDF. Copyright, of course, remains with IBM.

  • I cut myself by ignoring Occam’s Razor

    David
    15 Feb 2014 | 5:14 pm
    Occam’s Razor states that, all other things being equal, the simplest explanation is to be preferred. I wish I’d remembered that this afternoon. We have just completed a major landscaping/hardscaping project – and as long as the driveway was being dug up, we decided to replace the 50-year-old galvanized pipe between the water meter and the house with brand new copper. The replacement went well, but after the plumber had left, I noticed that one of my toilets was refilling very slowly. I ignored it for a couple of weeks, but finally I was irritated enough to Google the…

  • Cloud with a chance of TAR balls (or: what is your exit strategy)

    Stephan H Wissel
    12 Apr 2015 | 1:15 am
    Cloud computing is here to stay, since it does have many benefits. However even unions made "until death do us part" come with wagers these days. So it is prudent for your cloud strategy to contemplate an exit strategy. Such a strategy depends on the flavour of cloud you have chosen (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, BaaS) and might require to adjust the way you on-board in the first place. Let me shed some light on the options: IaaS When renting virtual machines from a book seller, a complete box from classic hosting provider or a mix of bare metal and virtual boxes from IBM, the machine part is easy: can…
  • email Dashboard for the rest of us - Part 2

    Stephan H Wissel
    11 Apr 2015 | 7:43 pm
    In Part 1 I introduced a potential set of Java interfaces for the dashboard. In this installment I'll have a look on how to extract this data from a mail database. There are several considerations to be taken into account: The source needs to supply data only from a defined range of dates - I will use 14 as an example The type of entries needed are: eMails replies Calendar entries Followups I'm waiting for Followups I need to action Data needs to be in details and in summary (counts) People involved come in Notes addresses, groups and internet addresses, they need to be dealt with Since I…
  • email Dashboard for the rest of us - Part 1

    11 Apr 2015 | 4:15 am
    One of the cool new features of IBM Verse is the Collaboration Dashboard. Unfortunately not all of us can switch to Verse overnight, so I asked myself: can I have a dashboard in the trusted old Notes 9.0 client? Building a dashboard requires 3 areas to be covered: What data to show Where does the data come from How should the data be visualised, including actionable options (that's the place we preferences between users will differ strongly) For a collaboration dashboard I see 3 types of data: collaborators (who), summary data (e.g. number of unread eMails) and detail data (e.g. the next…
  • XPages XML Document DataSource - Take 2

    Stephan H Wissel
    5 Mar 2015 | 12:53 am
    For a recent project I revisited the idea of storing XML documents as MIME entries in Notes - while preserving some of the fields for use in views and the Notes client. Jesse suggested I should have a look at annotations. Turns out, it is easier that it sound. To create an annotation that works at runtime, I need a one liner only: @Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME) public @interface ItemPathMappings { String[] value(); } To further improve usefulness, I created a "BaseConfiguration" my classes will inherit from, that contains the common properties I want all my classes (and documents) to…

    Leaving the cosy world of Domino Designer behind, venturing into IBM Bluemix, Java and Cloudant, I'm challenged with a new set of task to master. Spoiled by Notes where Ctrl+O gives you instant access to any application, regardless of being stored locally or on a server I struggled a little with my usual practise of develop local, deploy (Bluemix) global The task at hand is to develop a Java Liberty based application, that uses CouchDB/Cloudant as its NoSQL data store.

  • Managing Transformative Initiatives - Some Lessons Learned

    IWB
    28 Apr 2015 | 4:12 am
    Whether it’s cloud computing in the IT industry, over-the-top (OTT) content in media, mobil digital payments in finance, or data science just about everywhere, industry after industry continues to be radically transformed by technology-based disruptive innovations.  This is all part of what Joseph Schumpeter called creative destruction over 70 years ago, - the powerful force that rejuvenates the economy by replacing declining businesses with fast-growing startups.  For a startup a disruptive innovation is all upside, an opportunity to take-on established companies with new…

    21 Apr 2015 | 3:16 am
    Over the last several decades, digital technologies have been transforming just about every industry.  But few have been as disrupted by the dramatic advances in technology as the media industries.  Everything seems to be changing at once, from the way content is produced and delivered, to the sources of revenue and profits.  I’ve been closely following this technology-based transformation of media for a number of reasons.  First is my personal experience with disruptive innovations in the IT industry.  Unlike other industries which I might follow from afar,…

  • How Can We Ensure that Our Complex AI Systems Do What We Want Them to Do?

    IWB
    7 Apr 2015 | 5:41 am
    Software-intensive systems are generally quite flexible, - able to evolve and adapt to changing product and market requirements.  However, their very flexibility makes it difficult to adequately anticipate and test all the interactions between the various components of the system.  Even if all the components are highly reliable, problems can still occur if a rare set of interactions arise that compromise the overall behavior and safety of the system. Things are even tougher with people-centric sociotechnical systems, which not only have to deal with potential software problems,…

    Data storage is no longer a warehousing issue; implicit in the new world of data everywhere is the implied ability to find, access, and use that data in an efficient manner. Much of that data exists on a cloud, so you need to know how to make sure data storage is optimized and doesn't become a weak link in your cloud platform. Storage techniques and software tools can help you achieve data and database optimization, and help to manage virtualized data storage through the software layer. This article explores what storage optimization tools can do for you.

It explores the code that the compilers generate to demonstrate the performance gained by using the built-in functions. This is critical for high-performance AES applications, especially when many of them cannot be parallelized due to the nature of operation modes, such as chaining mode [for example, cipher block chaining (CBC) and propagating cipher block chaining (PCBC)] or feedback mode [cipher feedback (CFB) and output feedback (OFB)].

    The IBM® POWER8™ platform supports operating systems that use big endian or little endian byte ordering. Migrating programs written for a big endian operating system to a little endian operating system may require code changes to maintain program behaviour or results. There are differences that need to be considered with regards to vectors, storage association between items of different sizes, 16-byte reals, complex numbers, and unformatted data files. The application binary interface (ABI) implemented in IBM XL Fortran for little endian Linux on Power Systems is different than the ABI…
