Amadeus is a leading provider of innovative technology solutions for the global travel industry. To meet changing customer demand, the €4 billion company needed a new computing platform that was highly available, flexible, and tolerant to infrastructure fluctuations. Amadeus chose OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat as the foundation for its new application infrastructure. When the project is complete, Amadeus expects the cloud solution to decrease system latency for better customer service, increase platform availability, streamline operations through automation, and reduce time to market for new services.
Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity.
Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management. As we receive inquiry on this area increasingly, it makes sense to assess this market.

"In today’s IT infrastructure, data security can no longer be treated as an afterthought, because billions of dollars are lost each year to computer intrusions and data exposures. This issue is compounded by the aggressive build-out for cloud computing. Big data and machine learning applications that perform tasks such as fraud and intrusion detection, trend detection, and click-stream and social media analysis all require forward-thinking solutions and enough compute power to deliver the performance required in a rapidly evolving digital marketplace.
Companies increasingly need to drive the speed of business up, and organizations need to support their customers with real-time data. The task of managing sensitive information while capturing, analyzing, and acting upon massive volumes of data every hour of every day has become critical.

As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two.
Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) —
it is flash-driven architectures.
By investing in your customer experience teams, next-generation approach, and customers, you empower the modern customer across all touch points and create remarkable experiences.
Oracle has the most complete set of customer experience cloud applications to help you meet change, achieve growth, and drive customer loyalty.
If anyone remained skeptical about the cloud’s utility— and staying power—as a delivery mechanism for everything from infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to platform as a service (PaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and more, a quick look at recent statistics would surely change their mind. Indeed, with the cloud software market reaching US$48.8 billion in 2014 and anticipated to grow to US$112.8 billion by 2019, it’s clear that cloud computing is not just the way of the future, it’s also the way of the present.
IT organizations using machine data platforms like Splunk recognize the importance of consolidating disparate data types for top-down visibility, and to quickly respond to critical business needs. Machine data is often underused and undervalued, and is particularly useful when managing infrastructure data coming from AWS, sensors and server logs.

Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population.
Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as theydo not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure.
