In today's business environment, organizations of all sizes are struggling to maintain the advanced IT capabilities they need to be competitive while reining in cost and complexity. Shifting to off-premise hosted models, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and business process outsourcing, is a common activity undertaken to manage costs.
One of the main challenges businesses face in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery models is the task of synchronizing data and integrating the multitude of systems already in datacenters with new cloud-based applications, not to mention within the cloud itself. Traditionally, this required organizations to leverage existing tools as well as custom development.
This white paper looks at how two enterprises encountered problems with cloud integration and adopted IBM WebSphere Cast Iron to solve their immediate problems and extend use more broadly across their organizations.
Network management systems must adapt to meet the requirements of next generation networks. For example, a user interfaces may need to be refreshed with a state-of-the-art Web interface or support for the NETCONF protocol may be required to help customers deploy scalable networks. Adding functionality and integrating with existing applications and data stores has multiple trade-offs in terms of development time and system efficacy.

The volume and sophistication of malware is skyrocketing, and traditional anti-virus approaches are struggling to keep up. It’s time to rethink how we protect our endpoints. Instead of trying to build a better anti-virus “mousetrap,” without any shift in the underlying management model for vetting change in endpoint environments, security professionals should investigate more innovative approaches to endpoint security that can automate trusted change policies. This paper discusses an innovative approach to application whitelisting – one that integrates application control, anti-virus, patch management and a trusted change management engine into one unified solution – to improve endpoint security and provide the necessary flexibility to optimize IT operations and user productivity.

An industrial equipment manufacturer invested heavily in a number of different apps for their customers and partners. In theory, these apps made their lives easier by helping them schedule maintenance, order spare parts, generate financial quotes, amongst several other things.
Although these apps were feature-rich, adoption was very low. The problem as that these apps were created in silos by different business units without validating the need of end users. The investment was going to waste.
Infosys was invited to reinvent the wheel of app development.

"Security-conscious organizations face a gap between current
requirements and capabilities as they relate to data masking. Data volumes are growing exponentially and the risk of data leaks continues to make news, yet many organizations rely on inefficient, legacy approaches to protecting sensitive data. In contrast, top performing companies are turning to virtual databases and service-based masking solutions to ensure that data management functions can keep up with software development.
Land Rover BAR has sharpened its competitive edge with VCE VxRail™ Hyper-converged Infrastructure Appliance incorporating VMware virtualization and EMC VNX storage and Isilon, to accelerate collaboration on boat development and honing sailing tactics.
Committed to advancing brain research, The Dana Foundation needed to transition to the cloud to drive efficiency and more effectively manage risk. With this shift, Dana moved from waterfall development to DevOps but still needed to maintain its strict security posture. In this case study Jim Rutt, CIO of The Dana Foundation, discusses his use of the CYBRIC continuous application security platform to move to DevOps, embedding security earlier in the development process and gaining full security visibility across the SDLC.
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.
Learn how a security rationalization process helps CISOs optimize your security infrastructure while improving the bottom line. Development velocity is accelerating as enterprises adopt DevOps methodologies, yet security is still not integrated into the coding and deployment processes. Security teams are falling further behind as their manual processes and controls can’t scale at the same rate as development. This paper discusses:
The impact the current approach to application security has on business
How shifting security left in the application development process, seamlessly integrating it “early and often,” can accelerate innovation
Questions the Board and C-suite are now asking about security: are you prepared?
Read this paper to learn how, by shifting security left in the development process, it’s now no longer an obstacle to velocity, innovation and competitiveness. Instead, it’s an asset.
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.
