Inside this month’s issue

CONTRIBUTORS
Greg Lotko
Sea boat captain
Greg Lotko, one of the IBM VPs interviewed on page 38, earned his ferryboat captain license at 18 and retains a U.S. Coast Guard operator’s license for vessels up to 100 tons. Perhaps one day he’ll follow in the footsteps of his 78-year-old father, who still captains ferryboat runs on Long Island each summer.

Optimistic, for Good Reason
aybe I’m just a glass-half-full person, but it seems there’s always something to celebrate. Last year the IBM mainframe marked 45 years, then Linux* on System z* celebrated a decade on the platform. This year, IBM is celebrating 100 years as a company. A video IBM created to commemorate the milestone, “They Were There,” (http://youtu.be/ XrhDaAmn5Uw) features an interview with System/360 pioneer Fred Brooks. True to IBM’s mission to innovate, the system is much different from the computer Brooks first worked on. This month, IBM introduced the businessclass version of its newest model in the zEnterprise* 114. Read about it in “Address the IT Conundrum,” page 34. Two IBM vice presidents discuss the company’s ambitious future on page

M

Evelyn Hoover
Castle dweller
As part of a study-abroad program in college, Executive Editor Evelyn Hoover spent six months living in a castle in northern England.

38. General Manager of Power* and z Systems Tom Rosamilia also has a special message in the IBM Perspective on page 54. You’ll find our tip of the hat to IBM’s birthday in the IBM 100 supplement included with this issue, which features 10 IBMers who each made a special contribution to the company’s innovation. IBM isn’t just looking back; it’s looking forward with purpose. While IBM has a lot to celebrate, so do you. You’re working with a company that has a solid history and a bright future, which translates into stability and growth. Happy centennial!
