The Times, They
Are A-Changin'

"A

nd you better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone."
Bob Dylan's timeless insight on the evolving world is more
relevant than ever. The times are indeed changing, and so
are modern technologies. It's crucial for organizations to embrace the
latest advancements to meet ever-ascending customer expectations.
Fintech, for example-a word that simultaneously describes financial services technologies, the companies that develop said technologies and the organizations that use them-emerged to revamp how
financial institutions do business, enabling them to meet the needs
of consumers. Learn more about fintech in "Innovation in Financial
Services" on page 18.
It's becoming clear that we're moving slowly but surely toward a
hybrid and multicloud world. To keep up with this next chapter,
IBM developed new services and capabilities to position the IBM Z*
platform as the lynchpin of a secure cloud strategy. Learn more in
"An Agile Approach to Your Multicloud Strategy" on page 24.
Open-source technologies are also creating new opportunities
across several industries. In "Opening the World" (page 30), learn
what open source is, why it's revolutionary, what industries are
leveraging it and why it's relevant for IBM Z.
Modern workloads are changing, too. In "High-Performance Storage for z14* and LinuxONE* Servers" (page 37), learn how the IBM
DS8880 family and IBM Spectrum Scale* provide the storage performance, reliability and manageability required by these new workloads.
The online user experience is evolving, too. We've come to expect
speed, customization and organization as we browse online, and IBM
Systems Media redesigned ibmsystemsmag.com to deliver just that.
Learn more in "(Re)Designed to Deliver" on page 10.
With IBM's constant technological advancements, you won't be
sinking like a stone anytime soon. As this issue will show, the best way
to do things may not be the old way. And when you embrace innovation, exciting things can happen.

Angelo Merendino
"A great
conversation
requires two
people, talking
and listening.
I think a great
photograph
requires the
same. My
approach to photography is
to create environments where
people feel like their most
authentic selves and then
capture what happens."
-Angelo Merendino, photographer
