IBM acquires Instana for its AI-powered app performance monitoring

IBM today acquired Instana, a German-American software firm that specializes in developing application performance management software. The acquisition represents IBM’s continued investment in hybrid cloud, big data, and AI capabilities. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

As workflows evolve, organizations are moving away from monolithic apps toward more complex distributed systems. With this evolution, application performance monitoring and system observability have become key areas of investment. Monitoring performance metrics over long periods of time makes the process of determining acceptable performance expectations for apps much more straightforward.

IBM Apologizes For Firing Computer Pioneer

You’ve likely never heard of 82-year-old computer scientist Lynn Conway, but her discoveries power your smartphones and computers. Her research led to successful startups in Silicon Valley, supported national defense, and powered the internet.

Long before becoming a highly respected elderly professor at the University of Michigan, Conway was a young researcher with IBM.

Nearly 52 years later, in an act that defines its present-day culture, IBM apologized and sought forgiveness.

Apple blamed IBM and Intel for Mac chip delays, but TSMC won’t be next

What happens when the world’s most ambitious mobile chip designer is constrained by the production capacity of its only chip manufacturing partner? Thanks to Apple’s introduction of M1 chips for Macs this week, we might soon find out, but leading chip fabricator TSMC won’t be the one to blame.

It’s not hyperbole to state that Apple has pushed the entire mobile chip industry forward, and is now poised to do the same with PC chips. In 2013, Apple released the world’s first 64-bit mobile CPU, A7, which shocked rival chip designers by bringing iPhones closer to processing parity with low-end PCs. Five years later, the A12X Bionic enabled iPad tablets to match the performance of more expensive Intel Core i7 MacBooks, foreshadowing the end of Apple’s need for Intel chips. Now the M1 is here, and thanks to a breakthrough 5-nanometer manufacturing process, the tiny chip packs enough transistors to
