March is always a big month for the IBM Software Newsletter. It’s the month we recap all the announcements from the just-completed IBM Pulse conference. It’s also the month we publish the year’s first System z Edition of the newsletter, which we send four times each year to subscribers with a particular interest in System z software. We mailed both just a week ago, and have a pretty clear picture (based on clicks) of what interested our readers most:
