Enterprises use data virtualization software such as TIBCO® Data Virtualization to reduce data bottlenecks so more insights can be delivered for better business outcomes. For developers, data virtualization allows applications to access and use data without needing to know its technical details, such as how it is formatted or where it is physically located. For developers, data virtualization helps rapidly create reusable data services that access and transform data and deliver data analytics with even heavylifting reads completed quickly, securely, and with high performance. These data services can then be coalesced into a common data layer that can support a wide range of analytic and applications use cases. Data engineers and analytics development teams are big data virtualization users, with Gartner predicting over 50% of these teams adopting the technology by 202
The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By
allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly
lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more
tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos.
Currently, this virtualization juggernaut shows no sign of slowing. As businesses recognize the potential for
increased reliability and scalability offered by virtual technology, they are ramping up their investments in data
center modernization and upgrading. In fact, 33 percent of the respondents to a recent ESG survey on cloud
usage said that making greater use of server virtualization was one of their top five spending priorities for the
next 12 to 18 months.

While powerful and beneficial, the Citrix XenApp environment can present new challenges to IT departments when troubleshooting application performance issues. Citrix acts as a proxy for backend applications, making it difficult to get end-toend visibility of transactions and to identify and troubleshoot end-user experience problems
"Many organizations that could greatly gain from desktop and application virtualization have, until now, shied away from this technology due to the costs and complexities often associated with deployment—which is why selecting the right solution and the optimal underlying infrastructure is so critical.
This whitepaper will explain the challenges as well as the modern approaches that can make life easier, reduce costs, and ensure end-users are productive.
The role of the CIO has changed more in the past five years than any other position in the corporate world. IT leaders are now partners with business leaders, and they are tasked with helping companies respond to competitive pressures as quickly as possible. In an effort to improve overall IT agility, compute and application technology has evolved significantly through the use of mobility, virtualization and cloud computing. However, the network itself has yet to evolve, limiting the overall agility of IT today. These technology shifts have transformed almost every part of the enterprise. However, to maximize the potential of these investments, the network must also transform. Read more to learn how.

Today’s IT organizations face huge challenges such as the ever-increasing number of applications, virtualization, the cloud, and the rising value of information stored in data centers. The combined effect of these factors is placing pressure on IT infrastructures to increase performance and operate more efficiently while reducing costs.
An emerging technology, flash storage technology, is helping business and technology leaders address these issues by making their IT infrastructures more operationally efficient. Learn more in this white paper from Logicalis.
Current approaches for predicting with a high degree of confidence the application performance prior to implementation into production can be antiquated, expensive and time consuming. This document outlines a next-generation performance management approach using Service Virtualization and Application Performance Management being adopted by progressive organizations around the world.
Adopting a next-generation performance management approach can offer a range of benefits including efficiency gains in delivering applications, cost savings, improved agility and better performing applications. For organizations that increasingly rely on technology to provide value to stakeholders improving application delivery capability is critical to remaining competitive and relevant.
