This week we find IBM’s chairman and chief executive officer Arvind Krishna making the press rounds on multiple topics and he remains optimistic about the future. It’s nice to see him taking an active role in the tech community and you can find links to all Krishna’s had to say of late in our Top Stories section below. We’re also looking forward to brining you the latest in our very own IBM i ecosystem from the floor at COMMON, which begins next week. IT Jungle’s Alex Woodie will be our boots on the ground, so be on the lookout for stories from New Orleans, or check back in with us at Monitor next week for the roundup of the hottest news.
