Maintaining a competitive edge today means building a Digital Enterprise capable of taking full advantage of social, mobile, web, cloud, “things,” (sensors and devices), and analytics technologies. Among the terms used to describe this business transition is “the API Economy,” an economy in which APIs are no longer just an IT concern, but the underpinnings of new revenue streams and new business models that are disrupting entire industries.

Container platforms such as Kubernetes and RedHat OpenShift combine with agile development methodologies to speed up application development and deployment. By allowing developers to break applications up into smaller components (also known as microservices), containers can help reduce dependencies, allow component-level scaling, and encourage rapid release lifecycles.
In today's digitalized economy, web applications and the browsers that connect
to them predominantly rely on the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security
(TLS) protocols to encrypt sensitive business information and personally identifiable
information (PII) – such as customers’ credit card details, user account passwords,
corporate sales and payroll data, etc. – before sending them securely over the internet.
SSL/TLS encryption ensures information transmitted over the internet through e-mails,
e-commerce and online banking transactions and a myriad of cloud and online services
are kept secure.

Red Hat CTO for global service providers, Ian Hood, and TelecomTV talk about multi edge compute capacity and the fundamental need to have a common platform to deliver future services. ‘If you are not feeling some pain, you are not driving fast enough’, says Red Hat CTO, Global Service Provider, Ian Hood. The race to 5G is definitely on, and the use cases are clear. You can talk about multi edge compute capacity and other technical issues, but the fundamental thing is to have a common platform to deliver future services. We need to get to the point where IoT Everywhere, virtualized video and all the applications that come from new 5G services are delivered seamlessly. Even blockchain has a clear future within the telco environment where the world of eSIMs, secure roaming charges and identity management can alls be based on blockchain technology.
Organizations face onboarding risks of BYOS (Bring Your Own Service) as they hire new employees that bring their own cloud services into the work environment. Risks facing IT and security teams include protecting corporate data and defending against modern threats. While IT and Security teams want to adopt modern cloud applications and increase business agility, they also want to implement visibility and monitoring to protect corporate data and comply to security policies. This session will highlight how new methodologies available today enable organizations to discover sanctioned and un-sanctioned cloud services that are being used within their organization, and how they can apply consistent security policies across the public and private cloud to protect corporate data and conform to compliance policies.
Today, applications facilitate commerce on a global scale. They play a key role in delivering products and services to customers, a role that directly affects the success of the business. Companies that rapidly deploy, update, and manage business applications have a competitive advantage.
To maintain this fast pace, many organizations have adopted a hybrid cloud—a combination of private and public clouds—to become more agile.
But true agility isn’t easy
Integration is the lifeblood of today’s digital economy, and middleware is the software layer connecting different applications, services, devices, data sources, and business entities. This Ovum Decision
Matrix (ODM) is a comprehensive evaluation to help enterprise IT leaders, including chief information officers (CIOs), enterprise/integration architects, integration competency center (ICC)/integration center of excellence (CoE) directors, and digital transformation leaders select a middleware-as-aservice (MWaaS) suite best suited to their specific hybrid integration requirements.
