The rapid rate of mobile adoption provides today’s users with nearly unlimited access to data and information anytime, anywhere. While “always on” users represent a tremendous opportunity for businesses to increase engagement, revenue, and customer loyalty, they also create unprecedented mobile delivery challenges. In this e-book, we will delve into these challenges and learn how to master them by optimizing for fast APIs, mobile apps, and mobile sites. But before we do that, let’s start our mobile story with some perspective: Approximately half of you reading this e-book will do so on mobile. That fact alone should be a compelling enough reason to keep reading, but in case it’s not, the following data illustrates the impact mobile growth has had on our technological landscape.
APIs sind die verborgene Sprache des Internets. Sie bilden die Grundlage für die digitale Transformation vieler Branchen, indem sie es Anwendungen ermöglichen, miteinander zu kommunizieren und als Backend-Services für Websites und Apps zu fungieren. Da es sich um eine dynamische Technologie handelt, die im Hintergrund arbeitet, ist es schwierig, detaillierte Informationen zur API-Landschaft zu finden. Auf Basis von Erkenntnissen unserer neuesten API-Umfrage unter 400 führenden Technologieunternehmen sowie umfassenden Branchendaten haben wir vier essenzielle Fakten zu APIs herausgearbeitet.

More than 23 million servers in the world are still running on the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system, making it the most popular engine for serving information and applications globally for over a decade. But, starting in July 2015, Microsoft will no longer provide basic support for it.
In the last few years there have been radical changes in the ways organizations operate and people work. Explosion of data, increased mobile demands, and the globalization of business in general are making 24/7 access to people and information the norm. Sophisticated cyber attacks are requiring robust systems security designed to counter new threats. And velocity is now essential when delivering new IT services.
As big data shifts away from a more theoretical concept (only adopted by those on the leading edge), the fun can really begin. How do you prepare for more information than you’ve ever collected before? How can you manage this information with the same standards you applied in the past? These are questions that are causing both IT and business sides to start actively preparing for – and implementing – big data.
The Internet of Things (IoT) presents an opportunity to collect real-time information about every physical operation of a business. From the temperature of equipment to the performance of a fleet of wind turbines, IoT sensors can deliver this information in real time. There is tremendous opportunity for those businesses that can convert raw IoT data into business insights, and the key to doing so lies within effective data analytics.
To research the current state of IoT analytics, Blue Hill Research conducted deep qualitative interviews with three organizations that invested significant time and resources into their own IoT analytics initiatives. By distilling key themes and lessons learned from peer organizations, Blue Hill Research offers our analysis so that business decision makers can ultimately make informed investment decisions about the future of their IoT analytics projects.
It’s not really about Windows Server 2003. It’s about moving forward – HP Technology services experts can help you chart the proper course.
Shortcuts will take longer and cost more than doing it right at the start. If you’re considering migration shortcuts, think again – HP Transformation Experience Workshop for Windows Server 2003 Migration can speed the process.
Do you have your arms around your Windows Server 2003 migration?
Sure, your team has probably headed up countless maintenance initiatives in the past - upgrades, refreshes, migrations. But if you make the mistake of thinking your Windows Server 2003 migration is more of the same, you will lose on two fronts. First, you will underestimate the complexity of the effort, thus increasing the chance of failure by overrunning timeline and budget. More importantly, you will miss the opportunity to bring value to your business. This paper introduces five considerations that will change your perspective on the Windows Server migration initiative - and spur technical, finance and line of business employees to jump on board.
This assessment is composed of a core set of comparative questions, and the option to be assessed in any of three key areas: computing economics, service delivery and business performance.
After a half-decade of cost cutting and shrinking IT budgets, the compute infrastructure that powers the enterprise now is typically inefficient, slow and not optimized for business outcomes.
It is better suited to the economic realities of 2010 rather than the rigors of the application workloads, delivery models & business expectations of today driven by cloud, mobility, security and big data megatrends. As a result, there is a significant gap between what businesses expect from technology and what IT can deliver.
An IDG Connect survey of 300 enterprise organization decision makers involved in hardware investment decisions reveals the challenges and opportunities that lay between the old style of IT characterized by cost-cutting and infrastructure silos, with the new style of IT driven by the technology trends of Mobility, Cloud and Big Data. These trends have created a significant increase in business expectations that will press IT organizations to rethink their economics, service delivery and business performance. This paper highlights voice-of-the-IT-buyer research results for insight on the challenges and opportunities for IT organizations to drive innovation, transformation and improved delivery against business expectations.
