Analytic platforms as a service (PaaS) could shorten machine-learning learning curve.
You can't pin the blame for this one on IBM.
A few weeks ago, Nginx released its multilanguage microservices-friendly app server, but without Java support at launch. Now IBM has a beta build of its own microservices-friendly app server for Java applications: the open sourcenbsp;Open Liberty, which implements IBMrsquo;s version of Java EE and MicroProfile microservices implementation.Open Liberty will provide a runtime supporting Java microservices that can be quickly updated and moved among different cloud environments. Whennbsp;combined with the Eclipse OpenJ9 Java Virtual Machine, OpenLiberty will provide a full Java stack, IBM said. (OpenJ9 had been IBMrsquo;s J9 JVM, which it contributed to the Eclipse Foundation that now manages Java EE.)To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Site offers “proofrdquo; of access to Equifax data, but it all appears to be fake.
Six qubits is enough to determine the ground state of three simple molecules.
The Eclipse Foundation is set to become the new steward of enterprise Java, taking over from Oracle, which no longer wants to manage Java EE.As part of the adoption, Java EE will likely get a new name, something Oracle recommended in its proposal to have a foundation adopt Java EE.[ Learn whatrsquo;s new in Java EE 8. |  Keep track of whatrsquo;s changed in Java SE 9 in InfoWorldrsquo;s live changelog, “Whatrsquo;s new in Java 9.” | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]A month ago, Oracle said it would end its stewardship role of Java EE and turn it over to an open source foundation.

Following consultations with Java partners such as IBM and Red Hat and after meeting with several foundations, Oracle has settled on an organization that has had a long history in Java development: the Eclipse Foundation. Eciipse created its popular Eclipse IDE and managed multiple other Java technologies.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
IBM's LinuxONE Emperor II addresses container security as researchers pay closer attention to containers' security shortcomings.
Cloud computing isnrsquo;t one monolithic type of offering, but an assortment of services aimed at meeting the various IT needs of an organization.One such service provided via the cloud is infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), which delivers virtualized computing resources to organizations typically via the internet.
IaaS is one of main types of cloud services, along with software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS).[ What is cloud computing? Everything you need to know now. | Also: InfoWorldrsquo;s David Linthicum explains how to move into a cloud career from traditional IT. | Download the public cloud megaguide PDF: Amazon, Microsoft, Google, IBM, and Joyent compared. ]In the IaaS model, third-party service providers host hardware equipment, operating systems and other software, servers, storage systems, and various other IT components for customers in a highly automated delivery model.
In some cases, they also handle tasks such as ongoing systems maintenance, data backup, and business continuity.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
The open-ended research will explore consumer tech, health, and security applications.
The MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab will focus on furthering artificial intelligence-based research in areas such as healthcare and cybersecurity.
Every day human beings eat, sleep, work, play, and produce datamdash;lots and lots of data.

According to IBM, the human race generates 2.5 quintillion (25 billion billion) bytes of data every day.

Thatrsquo;s the equivalent of a stack of DVDs reaching to the moon and back, and encompasses everything from the texts we send and photos we upload to industrial sensor metrics and machine-to-machine communications.Thatrsquo;s a big reason why “big datardquo; has become such a common catch phrase.
Simply put, when people talk about big data, they mean the ability to take large portions of this data, analyze it, and turn it into something useful.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Now that Oracle wants to turn over leadership of enterprise Javarsquo;s (Java EErsquo;s) development to a still-unnamed open source foundation, might the same thing happen with the standard edition of Java (Java SE) that Oracle also controls? Such a move could produce substantial benefits.

But it does not seem unlikely, at least at the moment.Oracle said it has no plans to make such a move.

But the potential fruits of a such a move are undeniable.[ Keep track of whatrsquo;s changed in Java 9 in InfoWorldrsquo;s live changelog, “Whatrsquo;s new in Java 9.” | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]If Oracle steps aside, therersquo;s more room for many others For one, a loosening of Oraclersquo;s control could entice other contributors to Java to participate more. Java development has had other participants, including IBM, Red Hat, and SAP.

But with the current Oracle-dominated setup, other companies and individuals could be reluctant to contribute a lot if they see it as benefiting a major software industry providermdash;and possible rivalmdash;like Oracle.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
