Applications are the life of any enterprise and key enablers of workforce productivity and business agility. But, the application landscape is changing rapidly - the number and type of applications is increasing, the move to cloud and SaaS for application delivery is growing, bandwidth costs are decreasing and the reliability of the Internet has improved. Inevitably, there are also changes in network and infrastructure topologies.

New Gartner research predicts that 75% of IT organizations will have a bimodal capability by 2017. Bimodal is a critical capability that combines the solid conventional capabilities of IT alongside a capability to respond to the level of uncertainty and the need for agility required for a digital transformation. According to Gartner, half of IT organizations that have a bimodal capability will make a mess. Learn more about Gartner's predictions for common mistakes that CIOs will make and how to avoid them.

Driven by the acute imperative of digital transformation, enterprises and other organizations are adopting multicloud strategies as springboards to increase business agility and competitive differentiation. At the same time, monolithic application development is being superseded by microservices, which entail the decomposition of previously complex applications into independent, modular processes that communicate with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
Flexible infrastructure choices and application architectures are changing the way that modern enterprises run their computing.
Enterprises have become application-centric, investing significant effort and resources on continuous delivery goals and DevOps
practices to achieve automation of routine IT and operations tasks. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity
and agility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications and updates.
"For existing applications to gain the agility, scalability, resilience, and cost benefits of cloud computing, organizations need to adopt cloud-native architectures. By making this switch, you’ll be better suited to scale more quickly, so you can help meet your ever-changing user demands. The challenge is how to make this transition to a cloud-native architecture, quickly and easily.

Most companies are have decided they need the business agility and the cost savings that come when moving to the cloud with nearly 90 percent of businesses having adopted the cloud in some capacity. But with the bewildering amount of contradictory opinions and information floating around on the Internet, not many understand exactly what that means or what it entails. Companies considering Microsoft Office 365 as their first step in moving applications to hosted solutions face similar inconsistencies, making it difficult to separate fact from fiction. For example, some businesses incorrectly believe Office 365 is simply a version of Office accessed by a browser. Astonishing right!

Many organizations are discovering that traditional storage methods can be the bottleneck that slows their agility and scalability.
This has led to the development of containers, built to permit applications to scale rapidly, be more reliable, and offer better performance than more conventional means or methods.
Read the e-book to learn how container-native storage is the key to your organization running more efficiently and cost?effectively.
Today, organizations of all sizes recognize the value of an agile software delivery process. Agility is the foundation for cost–efficiency, competitiveness, high team morale and customer satisfaction.
Yet most organizations face an agility paradox in that the more agile their software delivery workflow becomes, the higher the risk that instability or unpredictability will be introduced and undercut the investment they make in software production.
Fortunately, there is a solution to this conundrum. It’s called shift–left monitoring, and it allows your company to maximize agility in software delivery without assuming undue risks. This e–book explains how you can achieve agility and stability at the same time to streamline the path to digital transformation and innovation by shifting monitoring to the left of your software delivery workflow.
It’s More Difficult Than Ever to Deliver a Five-Star Experience.
To truly capture customer interest and loyalty, your applications and services have to deliver reliable experiences that delight users, scale to support their changing needs and regularly refresh with new innovations.
As a result, you need ways to measure the metrics that really matter, namely: engagement, loyalty and satisfaction. It’s also imperative that you match agility with quality, making application performance a priority goal for everyone—from the business to marketing to IT. Finally, you need to future-proof your business by rapidly adopting the latest technologies and innovations that will meet—and exceed— customers’ expectations.
Speed and agility matter.
Businesses are being disrupted every day by digital upstarts that find ways to address new market requirements before the more established companies can respond.
Despite talented IT teams and years of head start in both architectural and development work, it is still difficult to respond to these challenges using traditional development patterns centered around monolithic software applications. It’s simply impossible to get to market quickly when applications need to be maintained, modified and scaled as a single entity by a large, heavily inter-dependent team.
From this need has arisen the microservices paradigm: a set of patterns for software architecture, development, deployment and culture that focus on speed and agility. From small, independent services and teams to automated deployment to fault tolerance and resiliency, these patterns help accelerate time to market.
The pace of change is accelerating. Customer expectations, competitive shifts and regulatory changes are disrupting global markets—and the way you do business. In this fast-paced application economy, software is at the heart of every business, driving every industry.
Gone are the days when you could build an application or product and then go years without changing much. To survive the disruptive outside forces lurking around practically every corner, you have to stay on top of your game and a step ahead of competitors. Your peers at other companies are likely facing challenges similar to yours, yet you see them leading the industry by consistently sensing market opportunities and delivering innovative new products. How do they do it? Find out by downloading this whitepaper.
Oggi le aziende di qualsiasi dimensione riconoscono il valore di un processo di software delivery Agile. L'agility è fondamentale per ridurre i costi, aumentare la competitività, il morale dei team e la soddisfazione dei clienti.
Eppure molte aziende si trovano di fronte a un paradosso dell'agility: più il workflow di software delivery diventa Agile, maggiore è il rischio di introdurre instabilità e imprevedibilità compromettendo l'investimento effettuato nella produzione di software.
L'importanza di rapidità e agility.
Oggi tutti i business subiscono l'effetto dirompente di upstart digitali, che individuano nuovi modi per soddisfare nuovi requisiti di mercato battendo sul tempo aziende più affermate.
Pur potendo contare su team IT di talento e anni di vantaggio nel contesto dell'architettura e dello sviluppo, rimane difficile rispondere a queste sfide utilizzando modelli tradizionali di sviluppo, centrati su applicazioni software monolitiche. È semplicemente impossibile arrivare sul mercato in modo rapido quando le applicazioni devono essere mantenute, modificate e ridimensionate come un'unica entità da team di grandi dimensioni, fortemente interdipendenti.
Read on to find out how your business can:
- Simplify IT Management and Administration
- Improve Performance and Application Availability
- Reduce Total Cost of Ownership
- Enhance IT and Business Agility
