Business needs, market trends, and customer demands are forcing IT teams to deploy applications at a rapid rate. The frequency of the deployments can invoke human errors, failed deployments, and outages. This paper will guide you through seven best practices that will strengthen the way applications are released to production.
Technology’s role in business and society has
shifted away from largely driving efficiencies to
innovating and creating engaging experiences
that attract and retain customers. Innovations and
business outcomes are fueled by a perfect storm
of technology trends in cloud, analytics, machine
learning, IoT and the emerging API Economy. The
convergence of these technologies has created
new opportunities for enterprises to improve
business performance by acquiring customers
faster while creating brand loyalty. The role of
technology expands the interaction with customers
beyond the core of the enterprise – away from
100% dependencies on systems of records –
and towards real-time, contextual interactions.
Businesses are a digital business or they are
evolving to become one. This requires enterprises
to re-think how they build software architectures.
Just “keeping the lights on” in the server room is highly complex and largely inefficient. Maintaining IT infrastructure, system interdependencies, and application interoperability tie up valuable personnel and resources. The old way of simply throwing more hardware capacity at a problem can only serve to increase the complexity and further dampen productivity.
In a perfect world, the infrastructure—hardware and software—would have been built as an integrated but scalable unit from the ground up. In our world, though, the best new systems combine independent pieces of IT infrastructure to form simplified computing platforms, freeing up IT to focus on business innovation rather than infrastructure management.
Welcome to the new world of IT.
Using productivity tools for requirements management is like using a hammer to open a bottle. It gets the job done, but at what cost? IBM Rational DOORS NG offers effective requirements management capabilities by including the ability to capture relationships and manage dependencies.
Many Windows applications are traditional x86/x64 apps, which can be several GBs in size. To package and deploy apps to remote worker and branch office endpoints, organizations mostly rely on costly distribution servers, which are both capital and labor intensive. New Windows Software Distribution capabilities in AirWatch create a more efficient and enterprise scalable deployment experience that reduces bandwidth, infrastructure, and labor costs.
• Manage the full lifecycle of Win32 apps - including deploying apps, dependencies and patches
• Eliminate the challenges of complex app packaging, unreliable app installs and recurring OS imaging with App Stacks delivery
• Distribute apps to remote and branch users with CDN and P2P capabilities and eliminate your distribution server footprint
• Deliver apps in a unified app catalog and provide a consistent single sign-on experience for the user

How is enterprise security like a commercial airliner? Preventative maintenance and regular, in-depth inspections keep jumbo jets operating safely, and the same approach will protect your enterprise security, too.
When you consider the widespread security vulnerabilities, the massively intertwined application dependencies, the diversity of deployment environments, and the potential device takeover of mobile apps, keeping your applications safe is a mind-boggling job. Traditional manual approaches are no longer practical.
Our exclusive white paper, “Keeping Your Application Fleet Flying Risk Free,” will help you establish the preflight checks and regular inspections that keep the applications in your portfolio running reliably and securely. Download it today.
