Keeping up to Date

I

recently upgraded to an iPhone XS and was astounded by the
difference in performance from my previous iPhone 5. Only a
few years of development separate the two, but the enhanced
camera specs, Face ID, a larger OLED screen and more completely
changed my user experience. Now that we're up to the iPhone 11,
I'm planning my next upgrade.
My point is this: Keeping up to date with the latest technology can
be a game changer. Similarly, creating technological enhancements
based on user feedback can make the user experience revolutionary.
That's exactly what IBM has done with the latest release of the
z15*. IBM worked with over 350 people in 103 enterprises to get
feedback that led to exciting changes in the z15 design-including a
standard 19-inch form factor, recovery boost, reduced reboot time
and more. The z15 also enhances data privacy and security, resiliency,
and compression-all of which align with primary needs in a hybrid
multicloud world. Learn more about z15 in "Next-Gen Security and
Resiliency for Hybrid Multicloud" on page 16.
Staying up to date can be a challenge for clients, especially when
they're migrating from older systems. IBM addresses that, too. In
"Moving on up" on page 22, learn how the IBM Client Advocacy and
Systems Assurance team, along with the RevitaliZ program, support
clients as they transition to the latest IBM Z* technology.
Part of staying current means looking for new talent to bring fresh perspectives and skills to the IBM Z platform. Designed as an introduction to
the world of z/OS* programming, the Master the Mainframe contest is key
in engaging new mainframers. In "A Closer Look at the 2018 Master the
Mainframe Winners" on page 28, past winners talk about their experiences with the contest and how it facilitated their interest in IBM Z.
The latest technology is more often than not a product of current
business needs, new perspectives and user feedback. Staying on older
systems can be costly, time consuming and inefficient. The latest z15
provides the cloud you want with the privacy and security you need,
and with the IBM Client Advocacy and Systems Assurance team and
the RevitaliZ program in place to help with migration, you can take the
next step in keeping up to date.
