I have written a fair bit over the years about the need for IBM to simplify its products. Its an ongoing theme with me. Achieving product simplicity will require a major cultural shift however, for an organisation that celebrates its ability to deal with complex problems with complex solutions.
I am pleased therefore, that IBM is sponsoring a video series about what I call Opinionated Infrastructure – where simplification and stripping things back are key to scaling systems.
In this first episode I set out the terms for a video series which RedMonk and IBM will be running, preceding a product launch from the PureSystems line next week. I will also be chairing a Google Hangout on the 3rd. I hope you enjoy the video, and the series too.
I tried to keep the videos short, so give them a go.
