Understanding the terms and techniques that promise to help you build, test, and
deploy applications more efficiently. This guide reviews each of these strategies, how
they relate to one another, and how incorporating them into your application
lifecycle can transform your software development and release practices.
We’re at a tipping point for customer service operations. Customers contact enterprises at a greater rate over a greater number of channels — shifting between them seamlessly and even using channels simultaneously. Enterprises react by adding headcount — an unsustainable strategy. You must transform operations by developing strength in automation, AI, and knowledge. This report reveals the top 10 customer service trends in 2018 for application development and delivery (AD&D) pros supporting customer service.
As enterprises work to replicate the development agility of internet companies and innovate in highly competitive markets, application development has grown increasingly complex. The large, monolithic codebases that traditionally power enterprise applications make it difficult to quickly launch new services. Siloed and potentially distributed development and operations teams present organizational alignment problems. On top of this, users are more demanding than ever – enterprises need to scale effectively and monitor deployments to ensure customers are provided with high performance and a consistent experience. Of course, all this needs to be done while providing always-on service availability.

Thanks to the rise of containers and microservices, the rate at which new application projects are moving into production environments is accelerating exponentially. Developers have been employing containers for some time to speed development of applications.
But the arrival of these applications to production environments inevitably creates new challenges for IT operations teams, since most IT monitoring tools don’t provide visibility into the containers that make up those microservices. As those container applications move into production, IT operations teams suddenly are finding themselves potentially flying blind.
With an estimated 9 million developers worldwide, the Java community
is a very robust one. One of the most important uses of Java today is
building applications for mobile devices using the Android operating
system. In addition, Java remains incredibly popular for enterprise
applications and client-server web applications, and is also a very
common language of instruction in software development courses.
"DevOps helps drive continuous collaboration with the end-customer, gaining further visibility into online and mobile application usage and its effect on the brick-and-mortar experience. The data your company can derive from this collaboration should be used to continuously validate assumptions made earlier in the development process.
Today’s empowered consumers have high expectations for the companies they do business with. They expect real-time communication, instant information, and the ability to connect in multiple ways. And they want it to be simple. A DevOps approach can help to accomplish this."
"Three key market dynamics are currently driving the need for transformation in almost every industry:
1) The need to leverage digital technologies to drive the core business
2) Next generation online consumers and socially networked buyers
3) The financial crisis
Companies are under tremendous pressure to bring digital technologies at the center of their business to remain
competitive, innovate, create new revenue streams, and drive greater customer intimacy. As a result the need to
leverage technology to significantly reduce the cost of going to market while driving growth has led to increasing
interest in software-based business models. "
"To support digital transformation imperatives, organizations are increasingly exploring DevOps style approaches for the continuous delivery of high quality software. Unfortunately, however, many enterprises remain burdened with accumulated technical debt and legacy wasteful practices – waste that can quickly inhibit the flow of value to customers and the business. Lean thinking provides organizations with a framework by which to quickly identify all forms of waste impacting the flow of value, which DevOps practitioners can apply in a software development context to quickly pinpoint and eliminate 8 elements of waste across people, process and technology dimensions.
This paper presents the 8 elements of waste framework, strategies needed to identify and eliminate waste, and the metrics needed to measure effectiveness.
"Are dev and test constraints holding back your digital transformation?
Today, just about all businesses are scrambling to add digital components to their products and services with the hopes of capturing—and maintaining—the interest of an increasingly demanding customer base. As you undergo this digital transformation, your IT teams face tremendous pressure to not only develop innovative new experiences, but do so at an accelerated rate—lest competitors beat you to market with the next big thing.
Take a new approach to solving the familiar challenge of doing more with less—and doing it faster than ever before -- remove the constraints holding you back.
At its core, Service Virtualization is all about removing constraints within the SDLC by simulating dependent systems, services and behaviors. In order to understand the true depth and breadth of this concept, however, it helps to see how Service Virtualization can be utilized in different development scenarios.
The research shows DevOps delivers 18% faster time-to-market and 19% better app quality/performance.
The application economy is motivating leaders to make critical changes across IT and the business, one of the most significant being the adoption of DevOps. For enterprise IT organizations who need to accelerate delivery of apps and provide customers with higher-quality software, faster, DevOps–with its focus on collaboration across IT domains from development to delivery–is increasingly the answer.
Driven by the acute imperative of digital transformation, enterprises and other organizations are adopting multicloud strategies as springboards to increase business agility and competitive differentiation. At the same time, monolithic application development is being superseded by microservices, which entail the decomposition of previously complex applications into independent, modular processes that communicate with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
