Distributed systems enable different areas of a business to build specific applications to support their needs and drive insight and innovation. While great for the business, this new normal can result in development inefficiencies when the same systems are reimplemented multiple times. This free e-book provides repeatable, generic patterns, and reusable components to make developing reliable systems easier and more efficient—so you can free your time to focus on core development of your app.
In this 160–page e-book, you’ll find:
An introduction to distributed system concepts.
Reusable patterns and practices for building distributed systems.
Exploration of a platform for integrating applications, data sources, business partners, clients, mobile apps, social networks, and Internet of Things devices.

The world is increasingly digital, with interactions and experiences delivered to a variety of users across a range of locations and devices. The modern workplace should follow users wherever they roam, deliver a superior experience, and drive productivity. Hewlett Packard Enterprise helps companies deliver rich digital and mobile experiences to users, including employees, customers, and guests, by extending their capabilities in app development, mobile connectivity, and collaboration.
Effective security for cloud-hosted web applications requires full visibility into the environment in which the apps live and the potential exposure to vulnerabilities — and to do so consistently, while proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application development and delivery.
Cloud adoption means that a focus on perimeter security is not sufficient and may even be obstructive, because it can impact application performance and availability.
Similarly, relying on your cloud service provider’s security services is insufficient; any provider will tell you that securing the cloud environment is a shared responsibility between cloud service provider and customer, and the responsibility for specifically securing web applications is the sole responsibility of the customer. And although the industry as a whole has become better at protecting lower-level network and server resources, as attackers look for targets, they are moving up the application stack.

Digital transformation is “the use of technology to radically improve performance or (business) reach. But for digital-native businesses that have never needed to make that shift — e-commerce, social media, web-based services — it involves a sharpening of that focus
combined with an ongoing evolution of process and infrastructure.

The current approach to leadership development in most organizations today isn’t working. In Brandon Hall Group’s Leadership: State of Development Programs 2013, nearly 75% of respondents said their leadership development programs were not very effective.
Organizations must refocus their leadership efforts and shift their mindset from programs to process.
This paper provides insights on how we can refocus leadership development by moving from programs to process and directing the white space.
Being better than your competitors at creating and using custom software can bring substantial competitive advantage. Similarly, being worse can put you at a significant disadvantage. If your organization doesn’t see ALM as one of its most important business processes, it’s time to change that view.
Today’s economic climate presents challenges in achieving business differentiation. Investing in innovation during an economic downturn may seem counterintuitive at first, but it can help companies pull ahead of the competition by displaying a show of strength in a climate of weakness. The Microsoft® Application Platform can help organizations do more with less, enabling them to more quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively deliver custom solutions that provide strong business value.
Read this white paper to learn how rPath's approach to automation relieves IT from the classic tradeoff between speed and control. It enables IT organizations to deliver applications much faster-in minutes-while maintaining control.
Sybase PowerBuilder has remained throughout the years a bastion of application development productivity for a wide class of enterprise applications that combine database access with a highly productive graphical user interface (GUI).
This report, which is the vision report of the mobile app development playbook for application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals, focuses on the changes application developers need to understand if they want to build modern applications that deliver contextual customer experiences.
Smartphones and tablets are game changers for engagement because people carry them everywhere they go. Your customers and partners and employees have perpetual access to the vast resources of the Internet — and hopefully your mobile app as well — in the key moments of their day. In interviews with more than 100 mobile innovators, we have found four places where mobile engagement transforms services and processes: customer engagement, process acceleration, employee productivity, and new business services. Even at this early stage of development, you can see positive impacts of mobile engagement in apps from General Electric, Trane, and Uber Technologies. We close with a simple framework for prioritizing which apps and features people will actually use based how useful and convenient they are.
Successful mobile apps, especially enterprise mobile apps, typically need to interact with a well-architected set of back-end services, but most mobile app developers are more skilled at client-side front-end development. Enter mobile back-end-as-a-service (BaaS), a new set of hosted platforms that addresses the gap between front-end development proficiency and back-end infrastructure requirements. Enterprise-class back-end-as-a-service addresses scalability while providing an integration platform into existing enterprise services. Use this research as your guidebook to navigating the emerging BaaS landscape.

ESG is seeing a new focus on platforms designed to support both development and integration. The need to address integration is akin to the elephant in the room—everyone is aware of the situation but nobody has a good way to resolve it. The siloed heterogeneous environment that defines IT today needs a pragmatic approach to bringing together application integration and mobilization. However, the resolution to the integration problem cannot just be addressed from a data or messaging perspective. Context and process is needed to bind these systems together in a meaningful way.
GigaOm is seeing a new breed of services that promise to accelerate the mobilization of existing enterprise applications and business processes. Early mobile-application development solutions (MADP) were resource-intensive, requiring custom client code for each supported platform, as well as an on-premise middleware layer to connect mobile clients to enterprise backend systems. In this new model, code-free, configuration solutions - aimed at business analysts and lines of business- are revolutionizing the landscape, consolidating tools and services to simplify cross-platform enablement, and reducing time to deploy and cost tremendously.
This report describes mobile-application configuration (MAC) tools, articulates their business value and suggests conditions under which they may be a good choice for an organization.
