Documenting POWER9 With Visio Stencils 
Do you groan when you think of the need to document your infrastructure? While you may know it’s important, you find the chore to be the one thing you keep moving to the bottom of your to-do list. Every shop needs it, but no one likes to actually handle the task. For those using POWER9 hardware, IBM has come to the rescue with Visio Stencils available in the VisioCafe. Power Systems Champion Alan Fulton explains the important role the documentation tool plays in organizations of all sizes.

IBM Helps Developing Nations Harness Safe Water 

Developed nations largely take clean water for granted. Open the tap, and there it is. Many developing countries, unfortunately, don’t have that luxury. Kenya, for example, has a population of approximately 46 million people, with an astounding 41 percent relying on unimproved water sources such as ponds, shallow wells and rivers. Additionally, only nine out of 55 public water service providers in Kenya provide continuous water supplies, leaving people to find their own water sources for basic needs.

Now, however, as part of the Kenya Resilient Arid Lands Partnership for Integrated Development (Kenya RAPID), IBM Research-Africa has created a water-management platform in the IBM Cloud to address the needs of the approximately 3 million Kenyans living in the remote northern regions of the country who lack access to safe water.
