Linux Journal Introduces SuitWatch: Doc Searls' Biweekly Industry Forecast
Doc Searls has been following these questions for years at Linux Journal, where he is Senior Editor. His column, "Linux For Suits," looks at where code, culture and business converge. He has become one of the most widely respected and quoted observers, not only of the software industry, but of business and its future, which are topics he addresses as coauthor of The Cluetrain Manifesto: The End of Business as Usual. Cluetrain was on all the major nonfiction bestseller lists last year and is still selling well in nine languages. Doc also speaks on all these issues to groups all over the world.
With SuitWatch, Doc holds forth every other week on subjects more current and business-focused than we have room for in Linux Journal. SuitWatch looks at what Linux and open-source development are doing in business this week, today and tomorrow -- and at the large issues around the often contentious space where open-source development and business meet and work together.
Subscribe to SuitWatch and you'll get Doc's thoughts in advance of general publication and circulation, but in a form you can find later on the Web when you need to source and link to them in the future. As a SuitWatch subscriber, you'll engage the thinking and experience of the most connected and business-oriented mind in the Linux community.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
