IBM Redbooks

Point-of-View publications


Introducing IBM Redbooks Point-of-View publications—brief, strategy-oriented documents that represent an author's perspective on a particular technical topic. Written by senior IBM subject matter experts, the publications examine current industry trends, directions, and emerging technologies. They further outline how you can address business challenges with specific approaches, and explain the business value that your company or organization may gain by choosing the highlighted solution.

For 45 years, IBM Redbooks has developed technical publications that typically provide product positioning and installation and implementation experiences. To respond to the evolving needs of our readers, IBM Redbooks has developed Point-of-View publications to focus on providing the business insights needed to understand solutions.

Many of the new Point-of-View publications will be written in partnership with the IBM Academy of Technology, a society of IBM technical leaders organized to advance the understanding of key technical areas, to improve communications in and development of IBM's global technical community, and to engage clients in technical pursuits of common value. This mutually beneficial relationship will enable Academy of Technology members to publish using the successful IBM Redbooks model, and enable the IBM Redbooks organization to partner with IBM’s premier thought leaders to share some of the most innovative and insightful thinking at IBM.

At about 5 pages in length, Point-of-View publications typically include solution highlights, a description of the problems being addressed, proposed solutions, and references for additional reading. They are available as PDFs for download.

Point-of-View publications are one of the latest offerings from IBM Redbooks, which recently expanded its offerings to include video interviews, tutorials, and 3-minute Redbooks overviews; blogging on blogs; IBM Redbooks Product Guides; IBM Redbooks Solution Guides; and more.
