With today’s ‘touch of a button’, always-on lifestyles, consumers expect information to be quickly accessible to customer-facing staff. They expect the same efficiency they get from their own phones or devices. Yet all too often business data is mired in outdated, slow systems and applications. These systems are difficult to work with, making each call or transaction slow to process as a result. This impacts customer satisfaction and reduces throughput. It affects productivity.

In most use cases involving flash storage deployments, the business environment changes, driving a need for higher-performance storage. However, the case of Epic Systems Corporation software is the opposite—the storage requirements haven’t changed recently, but the options for addressing them have.
Epic, a privately-held company founded in 1979 and based in Verona,Wisconsin, makes applications for medical groups, hospitals and other healthcare organizations. Epic software typically exhibits high frequency,random storage accesses with stringent latency requirements. IBM has been working with Epic to develop host-side and storage-side solutions to meet these requirements. Extensive testing has demonstrated that the combination of IBM® POWER8™ servers and IBM FlashSystem™ storage more than meets the performance levels Epic recommends for the backend storage supporting its software implementations—at a cost point multiple times lower than other storage alternatives.
Whether you were at the forefront of the mobility era or are just now catching up—or, most likely, somewhere in between—you’ve already experienced first-hand the business impact of ubiquitous smartphones and tablets. From employees to customers, mobile devices spawned an explosion in new applications, data, support needs, security concerns, and other issues. They’ve reset expectations for organizational speed and flexibility. They’ve dramatically increased the surface area for potential security attacks. All this, and the mobile era is still just in its infancy.
The ability to apply software to strategic advantage is the de? ning technology theme of this decade. This is not just an IT issue. It is a business imperative. Every business is in the software business. In some industries, the number of software jobs has doubled over the past ? ve years. JP Morgan Chase has more software developers than Google and more technologists than Microsoft. If you think your company isn’t in the software business, you’re wrong. Airlines, oil companies, telecommunications providers all are using applications to attract customers and gain a competitive advantage.
With the ubiquitous adoption of mobile devices, a whole new platform for application and content delivery is evolving. With their colorful, interactive, intuitive user interfaces, always-on global connectivity, sensing capabilities such as GPS and device orientation and their ability to connect with users through personalized con? guration options, mobile is truly the de? ning platform of the applicat
Business teams striving to move quickly into new markets and launch new products and services are demanding more from IT organizations that have traditionally been focused on avoiding downtime, ensuring security and compliance, and holding down costs.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provides an abstraction that makes developers more productive by helping them focus on creating applications rather than dealing with infrastructures. This is important as information and its associated processing has become central to more businesses, even those in industries that haven’t been historically thought of as dependent on information technology. And that makes writing custom applications in support of an organization’s business objectives more important than ever.

Lured by opportunities to speed innovation, reduce costs and enhance agility, many business executives are opting to move their organization’s applications into public cloud environments. Whether or not organizations realize these advantages to the fullest extent possible will in part be dictated by the monitoring capabilities in place. This paper offers a detailed look at the monitoring challenges cloud environments can pose, and it examines the key approaches = organizations need to take to foster maximum service levels, efficiency and agility in the cloud.
The application economy has forced businesses to transform. To capture new growth opportunities, enterprises are opening up and sharing select data and applications with developers, partners, mobile devices, the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT). One of the byproducts of this transformation is the discovery that legacy data has value in the application economy—so much so that new revenue opportunities emerge as this data is used in new ways.
While some are still adjusting to the idea, you’re well aware that we’re living in an application economy. For the uninformed, an application economy is where everything is driven by a connected, mobile, application-based world where your customers are far more likely to experience your brand and interact with your enterprise through a software application than a live person. But, beyond the benefits, each day you’re feeling the pressure it exerts on your budget, resources and network.
You’ve seen this wave swell on the horizon, and now it’s arrived: executives are enthusiastic and asking about strategies, and line-of-business leaders are requesting faster dev times and more complex projects. Staking out your place as a leader in this new landscape will require you to develop and deliver high-impact applications faster than ever before.
OpenLab is a centre of innovation provided by Juniper, for business leaders who want to build network-integrated software applications and solutions quickly and securely.

Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed.
Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.
Business leaders expect two things from IT: keep mission-critical applications available and high performing 24x7 and, if something does happen, recover to be back in business quickly and without losing any critical data so there is no impact on revenue stream. Of course, there is a gap between this de facto expectation from nontechnical business leaders and what current technology is actually capable of delivering. For mission-critical workloads, which are most often hosted on databases, organizations may choose to implement high availability (HA) technologies within the database to avoid downtime and data loss.
