[by Edward Hurley]

As I'm sure you heard, SHARE was in Boston last week. We were at the
event and reported several stories.

For example, we got a sneak peek of the new suite of Tivoli
management products and of z/OS V1.7. We also have results from a
survey about major IT developments.

I invite you to check them out below. Enjoy!
