New name for the blog

You may have noticed that yesterday this blog name has changed from WhyWebSphere to IBMadvantage and so did the URL. All of the previous subscriptions, content, links, and comments remain safe and we automatically redirect to and will continue to do so for years to come.


Why did we make this change?

If you are a regular reader of this blog, I am sure you have noticed that the range of topics that we cover has expanded from WebSphere Application Server to other IBM products and we have done extensive coverage on messaging, integration, data grids, and other topics. You may also know that IBM has combined its Middleware with the Cloud division into one Hybrid Cloud superpower unit. Thus you can expect a lot of new topics on this blog and more extensive coverage of PaaS and other cloud related technologies. If you asked me in 2009 “What is WebSphere?” – I would say that it is a family of middleware products produced by IBM, and that included Portal, ESB, BPM, Caching, Mobile, Messaging, and more. Since 2014 the term “WebSphere” is mostly used for its original purpose – the App Server. We decided to rename this blog to reflect the content diversity on our blog. While at it, we also improved the navigation and revamped categories and tags. We hope you like this new look and feel.
