Here’s how the University of the Arts London created a virtual showcase for its graduate art students with Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud.

Case study: “The show must go on

UAL had 7,000 students set to receive degrees in 2020. Each of them had worked hard for years, and they all deserved a chance to showcase their creations. So when COVID-19 made traditional in-person showcases impossible, UAL turned to the IBM iX team for help. After gathering input from multiple stakeholders, the team developed a digital showcase using Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud. As a result, UAL graduates now have access to a living catalog — a place share their work with friends, family and prospective employers.

“One of the things that was apparent early on in the project was just how much support IBM was giving to the thinking and development process.” — Professor Roni Brown, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Head, London College of Fashion

The UAL Graduate Showcase (external link) is a curated and richly layered digital platform built on Red Hat® OpenShift® on IBM Cloud®. It provides UAL with a flexible, resilient and affordable way to showcase students’ work digitally in a broadly compelling manner. Users can search the site by student or keyword, or they can browse different colleges and disciplines to learn about and observe students’ work.

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…
