As mentioned earlier May has been a busy month with the launch of IBMs premiere conference: THINK, that took place earlier this month in-person (for the first time in two years) and virtually. You can watch session replays on-demand, or check out Think on Tour as THINK visits a local city near you. Mean while the IBM team will continue reviewing security vulnerabilities and working on quality improvements as we move in the month of June. June will also be a busy month as the team ramps up the testing efforts for our next release of Cloud Pak for Data 4.5. So stay tuned as we get ready to launch 4.5.
