Achieving high performance for Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) applications
This article provides a detailed analysis about the new Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) built-in functions provided by IBM XL compilers. It explores the code that the compilers generate to demonstrate the performance gained by using the built-in functions. This is critical for high-performance AES applications, especially when many of them cannot be parallelized due to the nature of operation modes, such as chaining mode [for example, cipher block chaining (CBC) and propagating cipher block chaining (PCBC)] or feedback mode [cipher feedback (CFB) and output feedback (OFB)]. If you are a software engineer who is interested in achieving high performance for applications on IBM POWER8 processors, this article is for you.

When your app crashes, you want to know absolutely everything!
If software engineering was like civil engineering, then mobile apps would be as rock solid as the average modern bridge. However, software engineering is a very different discipline - and a much younger one - than civil engineering. We have best practices and design patterns to help us write excellent software, but it is almost impossible to guarantee a piece of software will never crash. This is an even bigger challenge in today's mobile apps which, thanks to very short release cycles, do not enjoy as much quality assurance as do other kinds of software. In this article, you will understand how the automated crash reporting feature of IBM Mobile Quality Assurance can make your mobile app as strong as a bridge.
