IBM Workplace represents an entire portfolio of IBM products, new and existing, that focuses on increasing people's productivity in a new way. In this book, IBM Software Live! Program Director Douglas Spencer and Senior Lotus Consultant Ron Sebastian start with an introduction to people productivity in the context of IBM's On Demand Business vision. Then the IBM Workplace strategy and products are described. You will see how the underlying componentized software infrastructure of IBM Workplace provides the flexibility businesses need in the emerging on demand world. You will see how many users without traditional desks such as an outbound sales force, factory floor staff, airline pilots, etc. can collaborate with others boosting the productivity of the entire organization, trading partners, and customers. The authors then provide an overview of the key product lines that implement the IBM Workplace vision including IBM Workplace, WebSphere Portal, Lotus Notes and Domino, and WebSphere Everyplace. You will learn how the new IBM Workplace client technology for these products combines the rich user experience of client/server with the cost characteristics of Web-based applications, giving users the best of both worlds. In the final chapter, the authors explore industry-specific people productivity solutions tailored for the needs of specific industries including aerospace, defense, automotive, banking, financial markets, consumer products, electronics, utilities, government, health care, insurance, life sciences, retail, and telecommunications, etc. The Foreword, by IBM Software Group General Manager of Workplace, Portal, and Collaboration Software, Michael D. Rhodin, provides an insider's perspective on the thinking behind IBM Workplace.

This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides performance tuning tips and best practices for IBM Business Process Manager (IBM BPM) V8.5.5 (all editions) and IBM Business Monitor V8.5.5. These products represent an integrated development and runtime environment based on a key set of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM) technologies. Such technologies include Service Component Architecture (SCA), Service Data Object (SDO), Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) for web services, and Business Processing Modeling Notation (BPMN).

Both IBM Business Process Manager and Business Monitor build on the core capabilities of the IBM WebSphere® Application Server infrastructure. As a result, Business Process Manager solutions benefit from tuning, configuration, and best practices information for WebSphere Application Server and the corresponding platform Java virtual machines (JVMs).

This book targets a wide variety of groups, both within IBM (development, services, technical sales, and others) and customers. For customers who are either considering or are in the early stages of implementing a solution incorporating Business Process Manager and Business Monitor, this document proves a useful reference. The book is useful both in terms of best practices during application development and deployment and as a reference for setup, tuning, and configuration information.

This book talks about many issues that can influence performance of each product and can serve as a guide for making rational first choices in terms of configuration and performance settings. Similarly, customers who already implemented a solution with these products can use the information presented here to gain insight into how their overall integrated solution performance can be improved.

The challenges to humanity posed by the digital future, the first detailed examination of the unprecedented form of power called "surveillance capitalism," and the quest by powerful corporations to predict and control our behavior.

In this masterwork of original thinking and research, Shoshana Zuboff provides startling insights into the phenomenon that she has named surveillance capitalism. The stakes could not be higher: a global architecture of behavior modification threatens human nature in the twenty-first century just as industrial capitalism disfigured the natural world in the twentieth.
Zuboff vividly brings to life the consequences as surveillance capitalism advances from Silicon Valley into every economic sector. Vast wealth and power are accumulated in ominous new "behavioral futures markets," where predictions about our behavior are bought and sold, and the production of goods and services is subordinated to a new "means of behavioral modification."
The threat has shifted from a totalitarian Big Brother state to a ubiquitous digital architecture: a "Big Other" operating in the interests of surveillance capital. Here is the crucible of an unprecedented form of power marked by extreme concentrations of knowledge and free from democratic oversight. Zuboff's comprehensive and moving analysis lays bare the threats to twenty-first century society: a controlled "hive" of total connection that seduces with promises of total certainty for maximum profit--at the expense of democracy, freedom, and our human future.
With little resistance from law or society, surveillance capitalism is on the verge of dominating the social order and shaping the digital future--if we let it.
