If you are not configuring site specific rules you don’t need an Independent group. If you only have one site, you should never have Independent groups. By default, security groups combine with...

We traveled with 5 families and with the outreach programs I do (I run e-Week programs at schools in my home town which shows kids that engineering jobs can be fun) they all know IBM. We saw IBM logos on cash registers, as sponsors of an exhibit at EPCOT and we even got a glimpse of a Maximo Work Order on a mobile device when we saw a technician at our hotel making a repair. My 9 year old... [More]
