Top 9 rules for cloud applications
An application is cloud-ready if you can effectively deploy it into a public or private cloud. That is, you must design the application so that it can leverage the platform-as-a-service (PaaS) layer on which it runs, and won't break because of design limitations that collide with assumptions that are made in the PaaS layer. If you follow these simple rules in your application design, you can usually make your existing applications cloud-ready without going through an entire reimplementation.

Governance in the age of APIs and social interactions
In the age of business APIs and social interactions, governance is no longer primarily about compliance. Today, governance has to address the far more important challenge of empowering the organization to drive business growth - making sure that the right people make the right decisions, at the right time, for the right reasons, and based on the right information. Meeting that challenge, strategically as well as operationally, will require a change in not only governance processes but also the roles and skills that define and enable those processes. In this column, I describe the necessary changes and outline how to create an easy to understand and easy to appreciate modern governance scheme.

Monitoring the JVM server in CICS with IBM Support Assistant
Memory leaks in Java programs can be as critical as they are in programs written in other languages. While Java has a Garbage Collector, it sometimes cannot remove objects because they are still referenced. Therefore memory leaks require you to first, locate them, and second, identify the class responsible. This article uses a sample Java program running in the CICS JVM server to show you how to locate a memory leak and identify the class responsible.
