Building Clouds
With Flexibility
The whole point of cloud is agility and flexibility to quickly add
new services. It's now possible
to both modernize and extend
existing z/OS* applications as well
as design new hybrid solutions
using containers, Kubernetes and
tools that cloud-native developers are familiar with. In addition,
developers can integrate z/OS
technology-based services and
resources for modern cloud development, enabling the integra-

tion of z/OS services into hybrid
applications.
That may not sound like a big
deal if you're not familiar with
the levels of security, privacy,
availability and resiliency that the
IBM Z platform provides. But we'll
go ahead and clue you in: It means
that you can now seamlessly integrate those z/OS services into the
hybrid multicloud with consistent
management and orchestration,
and easily create new solutions,
even cloud-based, that leverage
those SLAs.

IBM Z MEETS IBM DESIGN THINKING
IBM started applying Design Thinking in 2014,
publicly releasing a formal framework aligning
multidisciplinary teams around the real needs of
users in 2016. The Design Thinking cycle
involves observing what's important
to users and discerning client needs
to come up with solutions, often
times with them, that align with
those needs. Adam Cutler, the
first Distinguished Designer at
IBM, says the team put in place
around Design makes, "a conscious commitment to prioritize
users over other, sometimes
competing, business concerns."
The IBM Z management team
made that commitment at the
start of the development cycle
for the z15. Kirsten McDonald,
design lead, IBM Z, began what
she calls a "radical collaboration between Offering Management (reflecting the needs of
the market and the business),
Design (to understand what
problems our users think are
worth solving) and Engineering
(to make sure it all works technically)." Clients and users, and
their feedback, are at the center of
the Design Thinking process. The z15
team worked with over 350 people in
103 enterprises, logging more than 450
interaction hours with clients. Their feedback led
to some exciting changes in the z15 design.

There's no doubt that form factor, or being able
to easily slide IBM Z systems into the existing
data center racks, is a priority for clients. Up to
now, the top-of-line IBM Z servers had an outsized form factor. That changes with
the z15 and the form factor is now 19
inches, the data center standard. Just
what the client asked for.
Security is also top of mind, and clients told the Design team how critical
it was to extend pervasive encryption
capabilities to data outside the data
center. But beyond security, they also
wanted compliance policies to be applied to data wherever it goes. As a result, IBM Data Privacy Passports were
created, enabling the IBM Z platform's
security and compliance rules to follow data wherever it travels, including
into the cloud.
When the team was working on the
System Boot Recovery, clients indicated
that speed of reboot was not the only
issue. Time to shut down was also costly.
The team decided to focus on both, decreasing the end-to-end time by 50%.
Shani Sandy, IBM's first IBM design
executive, IBM Z, summarizes it best.
Through the Design process, she says,
"We've gained deep engagement, and
analysis, surpassing best practices
while improving the usability of our offerings for our customers. We're working together
to design the next generation of the IBM Z platform
for a changing world."
