Your employees are also online consumers of information and entertainment. You can maximize enterprise learning by applying practices from the new generation of information delivery, while keeping the best of the old-school approaches.
Competitive pressures, increased marketplace demands and the constant need to reduce expenses have only intensified the demands put on companies to develop and deploy their software applications quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. Read about the key barriers companies must cross as they attempt to streamline their software delivery processes and learn how to bridge the gap between development and operations in this paper.
The lack of trusted information - information that is accurate, timely and relevant - is on the minds of CEOs and senior executives around the world. The cost and complexity of managing increasing volumes of data and content, combined with the need to provide trusted information to every user for every transaction, is driving CIOs to rethink their approach to information delivery.
In today's business climate, IT organizations need to demonstrate their ability to add value. This white paper from Macehiter Ward-Dutton - an IT advisory firm that specializes in issues of IT-business alignment
Ever been accused of having your heads in the clouds? This no long applies to IT executives because computing clouds are the way forward. Read on to learn more about the new era of responsiveness, effectiveness and efficiency in IT service delivery.
Cloud computing give you the opportunity to manage infrastructure as code. This capability provides the ability to manage the delivery pipeline in a way similar to how we manage code, providing repeatable, testable deployments of applications all the way from unit to user acceptance tests, reducing risks and costs, and removing the bottlenecks that occur at the transition from agile development to operational deployment. Join this webcast to learn how Collaborative DevOps solutions from IBM can help turn your delivery pipeline into an agile, automated workflow.
The IBM® DevOps solution offers a new approach to traditional application lifecycle management (ALM) that can help businesses achieve sustained innovation. Broadening the scope of software development and delivery beyond a business's technology.
Transform the way that your global and distributed teams work together to build software. Make software delivery more collaborative and productive using IBM Rational® software solutions for collaborative application lifecycle management (ALM), powered by IBM® Rational® Jazz. This interactive demonstration, presented by Carolyn Pampino, illustrates the five imperatives for effective collaborative application lifecycle management.

Have you heard about the DevOps revolution? What’s all the buzz about? Find out more in this report by Kurt Bittner, Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. Even if full continuous delivery is not your goal, proceeding toward it can help increase reliability, reduce risks, and decrease costs. As Kurt shares, “The revolution is just beginning, but it’s real — and the time to act is now.”
According to a survey by the IBM Center for Applied Insights and Oxford Economics, business leaders are becoming increasingly focused on the business value of cloud. Although the participant’s cloud strategies differ in terms of scope, platform and delivery models, the chief takeaway from the survey is that cloud is not just about cutting costs and driving efficiency—cloud fuels growth.
Application release and deployment practices are the backbone of the DevOps movement. Learn how automating application release and deployment can speed time to market, drive down costs and reduce risk. Improve software deployment in your organization through innovative automation methods!
Agile Development and DevOps emphasize quick feedback cycles. But how do we test non-trivial applications with many components? What do we do when some components are outside of our control, expensive to access, or simply not ready to test against? Delaying integration testing or running the tests infrequently is can cause problems to linger, quality to fall, and delivery delays.
Delivering applications that meet the needs of the business can be a challenge in a complex business climate that is constantly changing. Diverse, multiple heterogeneous environments are the norm, all of which must be maintained and deployed. Multiple tools and technologies connect, support and create work.
This paper will explore best practices for identifying and eliminating seven types of waste: Waiting, handoffs and task switching, motion, extra processes, extra features, partially completed work and defects.
In this paper, IBM proposes that organizations relying on the traditional waterfall process for systems and software delivery-that is, an engineering governance model-need to make changes to reduce risk and improve results
Modern mobile applications connect systems-of-engagement (mobile apps) with systems-of-record (traditional IT) to deliver new and innovative business value. But the lifecycle for development of mobile apps is also new and different. Emerging trends in mobile development call for faster delivery of incremental features, coupled with feedback from the users of the app "in the wild". This loop of continuous delivery and continuous feedback is how the best mobile apps keep their users engaged and also produce the most compelling apps in the market.
Join us for this webcast to learn about how IBM offers a solution that enables our clients to use continuous quality as an effective means of mobile application development.

Securely connect people, applications and devices to cloud environments.
While organizations build their cloud environment by choosing from multiple service delivery models – Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) – the security needs for each of the delivery models is different.
Read this whitepaper to learn more about how:
· Threat-aware identity and access management can strengthen security in each of the cloud delivery models
· Self-service IAM solution can provide higher level of Security in Cloud as compared to on-premise
According to Forrester Research, we have entered the era of Continuous Delivery. Clients are shifting from agile transformation to DevOps, while modern application delivery leaders are embracing DevOps to accelerate delivery of innovation.
UrbanCode Deploy provides extensive capabilities for configuring WebSphere Application Server (WAS) through plug-ins: Application Deployment for WebSphere - which enables the auto-discovery of WAS cells; and Middleware Configuration for WebSphere - which allows for management of WAS configurations.
