Room for
Improvement

Jonathan Robert Willis

W

hen it comes to writing essays, editing and creating articles or
practicing auditions, I continuously ask myself, "Have I made
this the best that it can be?" And when you find something
worth the effort of continuous improvement, it must be valuable.
Take the mainframe, for example. Over the years, the community
has focused on integrating younger mainframers onto the platform,
making the platform more accessible through open-source projects
like Zowe and more. Sometimes, this progress takes a village. For a
story of collaboration, read how Russell Tobin, Per Scholas and IBM
worked together to bring new talent into the mainframe workforce in
"Skilling Up" on page 22.
Improving storage efficiency is another feat many organizations are
striving to achieve, and some storage methods have proven more prominent than others. For a look at the top 2018 storage trends-including
artificial intelligence, flash storage, predictive storage analytics and
more-see page 10.
Optimizing security should also be top of mind for organizations
everywhere, and IBM is invested in making the world's data safe. In
October, IBM announced IBM Secure Service Containers-a new offering
that improves security and agility-as well as the Solution Consumption
License Charges model, a new consumption-based pricing offering. To
learn how these new offerings can help you get the most out of IBM Z*,
flip to "Enabling Opportunity" on page 16.
It's also become increasingly evident that even the strongest passwords aren't enough to protect information. But with IBM Multi-Factor
Authentication for z/OS*, organizations can add an additional level of
security to the mainframe. To learn how multifactor authentication
works and why it's effective, read "Passwords Won't Cut It in Enterprise
Security" on page 38.
As you may have noticed, we also thought our magazine layout could
do with a refresh. For a closer look at what's new in this redesign, see
"The Big Redesign Unveil" on page 8.
Even the best things in life have room for improvement. As this issue
will demonstrate, IBM is a catalyst for improvement when it comes to
mainframe education, storage, security and more.

Jonathan Robert Willis
(or JONBOB, for those
who dare), photographer for the feature
story on page 22, is
a recovering punk
rocker and a father
of three. His trademark style focuses on
juxtaposing the ordinary
with the offbeat. Whether he's shooting
doctors, rockers, white or blue collars, his
approach remains the same: Find the balance between too little and too much, and
identify parameters that induce creativity.
In search of the greatest shots, Willis
will jump from city to city and country to
country-building makeshift studios and
hunting for dynamic life in dynamic light.

Pawel Dobrowolski
In seventh grade, photographer Pawel
Dobrowolski borrowed his grandfather's
35mm camera and embarked on an autumn
trip into the mountains. He began without
a clue what he was doing, but soon found
himself developing photos in his cousin's
darkroom. Dobrowolski's encounter with an
enlarger in this darkroom left him hooked.
After experimenting with different cameras,
photography settings and styles over the
years, Dobrowolski discovered his love for
photographing people. He enjoys taking
people out of their comfort zones to bring a
new dimension to his photos. For an example of his work, turn to this month's "Beyond
the Box" on page 40.
