I know, the first thing on everyone’s mind after reading the title is this – “So, who caved in first, accepted defeat and decided to partner instead? 

Well, let me set that record straight. Both Apple and IBM are winners, huge successes and have spawned their own thriving ecosystems. But, are they competing for superiority in the same space? Not completely true – while IBM is every enterprise’s trusted go-to partner for all things enterprise computing; they can’t hold a candle to what Apple has pulled off in the consumer space. And vis-a vis, neither has Apple managed to make inroads with traditional enterprises. Both victors in their own rights, in their own spheres!

Monitoring was the most important requirement when computers were just computers. What I mean by this statement are those times when there were barely any monitors or consoles attached to the computers, when printing was a costly affair and storing, backing up and restoring data was a big challenge! Monitoring was one of the main features that the mainframes provided to bridge the lack of transparently inherent in the erstwhile computer architectures. The developers and users alike were inquisitive and actively looking for what was stored on the storage devices and how accurate and correct it was. It was hard for users to remember for a long time what exactly they punched on punch cards and how many cards really got read successfully by the card reader.
