    Why are more organizations interested in single sign on (SSO)? Is it because IT teams are tired ofmanaging passwords? Or perhaps it’s because they’re frustrated with employees reusing passwords that have been previously been compromised, leaving their organizations vulnerable. Regardless of the reason, the use of single sign on is on the rise. During this session, Pat Botz, Carol Woodbury, and John Vanderwall from HelpSystems will describe SSO as well as the technologies IBM i provides for implementing SSO. Finally, they will answer your pressing SSO questions.

  • Open Source Applied – Justin Reock

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    This session takes open source support data across multiple organizations to examine three different scenarios that represent the most common issues we see today

    This isn’t your typical case study, this is the reality of open source: One hundred percent of organizations use varying degrees of OSS, yet we still focus on one particular package or layer when it comes to sharing best practices. The reality is, when we get stuck, it’s the configuration and operational interrelationships between packages that matter.

    This session takes open source support data across multiple organizations to examine three different scenarios that represent the most common issues we see today (in fact, 80% of the cases we see are due to configuration and package interrelationship issues). Justin Reock covers e-commerce, mobile PaaS, and high performance computing examples to illustrate top problems and solutions for stack selection, infrastructure implementation, and production troubleshooting.

    If you use or are planning to use Apache web server, ActiveMQ, CentOS, Docker, Kubernetes, Nginx, OpenSSL, Puppet, or PHP, these stories cover how most organizations use them. Even if you’re not using these specific packages, the information presented here also applies to other technologies.
