Bill Bernstein
Bill Bernstein has been photographing masters of art and commerce for over three decades. His job as Paul McCartney's personal
tour photographer took him around the world
a couple times documenting the rock legend
for 15 years. Examples of Bill's portrait work
can be seen in "Enhancing Cloud Computing"
on page 20.

s clients continue on their cloud journey, they're challenged
with bringing their clouds together cohesively while also
protecting investments and avoiding costly single-vendor
scenarios. It's better to adopt hybrid multicloud strategies, spreading
workloads across multiple cloud computing platforms.
That's where IBM and Red Hat® are changing the game.
Red Hat OpenShift® isn't tied down to a locked-in proprietary public cloud
stack. Rather, it gives users the same freedom of developing and managing applications in the public cloud as they have in their data centers.
Bolstering this is Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces, IBM Cloud Pak®
solutions, IBM z/OS® Cloud Broker and Red Hat Ansible®-certified content
for IBM Z®. Learn more about how the IBM and Red Hat combination is
helping IBM Z clients embrace open computing environments in
"Enhancing Cloud Computing" on page 20.
The need to quickly develop new applications to meet evolving
business needs is also key for hybrid cloud and multicloud environments. The new IBM Wazi for Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces provides a comprehensive set of capabilities that provide organizations
with the modern development environment needed to fully embrace
cloud native development. Learn more in "Cloud Native Development
Packaged in a Self-Service Platform" on page 26.
With Wazi for Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces and the modern
pipeline capabilities available for z/OS, the "I need a COBOL developer" demand should also go away, which effectively helps eliminate the
skills gap. With Wazi, developers coming out of college have the skills
to dive right into development to create a cloud native environment.
Pair this with programs like IBM Champions and Master the
Mainframe (among many others) and you'll find a new generation
of mainframers ready and able to contribute their expertise to the
platform. Meet the 2019 Master the Mainframe winners on page 31,
and learn more about the IBM Champions program on page 10.
As you'll learn in this issue, the Red Hat and IBM combination is providing clients with hybrid multicloud capabilities, making sure they're
successful in modernizing mission-critical applications and working to
close the mainframe skills gap by embracing open environments.

Natalie Chitwood
Natalie Chitwood, photographer for "Megan
Hampton Advocates STEM Education" on
page 40, specializes in lifestyle, portrait,
spaces and brand narrative photography. Her
portfolio features clean lines, pops of color
and a splash of mystery. She enjoys exploring
new places, sampling local coffee, having a
farm-to-table dinner and stargazing.
