In the emerging digital enterprise, there’s a good chance some application development will be taking place outside the information technology department. It’s not that the role of IT is in any way being diminished – in fact, IT managers are getting busier than ever, overseeing the technology strategies of their enterprises. Rather, the pieces are in place for business users to build and configure the essential business applications they need, on a self-service basis, with minimal or no involvement of their IT departments.
As the world moves deeper into an era of ongoing disruption from digital players – be they startups, or teams within established enterprises – technology has become an essential part of every job, from the boardroom to the boiler room. Accordingly, the discipline of IT is no longer confined to the data center or development shop. Many business managers and professionals are building, launching or downloading their own applications to achieve productivity and respond
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.
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
In today’s user-centric world, applications are increasingly at the heart of how your customers experience your products and services. Consistently good application performance is now essential to business success. This is where the quality of application performance enters the picture. Given the
complexities of today’s modern application environments, applications should be tested early, often, and thoroughly in the development cycle using processes and solutions to fit your specific needs. To help your organization meet this objective, this interactive brochure explores an eight-step framework for better application performance. This framework begins with business requirements and culminates in the ongoing optimization of
your application performance. With its expansive application software portfolio, HP covers all of the steps in this framework.
This no-nonsense primer covers the benefits and basic principles of good testing, offers practical advice for getting the most out of your testing efforts, and pinpoints several areas where automation will help you achieve the most cost-effective results.

Despite all your planning, the release made it to market with some significant bugs, and your company has had to run damage
control. Now you’re getting questions about what went wrong, and before you know it, the blame game is in full force, with your
developers and testers pointing fingers at one another.
So what happened? Whose fault was it really? And what can you do better next time? The truth of the matter is, at a time when
the stakes for software development are higher than ever (and only continuing to rise), the blame game simply isn’t going to cut
it. And if you’re operating in a true DevOps environment, the finger pointing should never even happen in the first place.
Securing web applications in the AWS cloud environment relies on the cloud service provider and the customer working
together in a shared responsibility model. Effective security for web applications on AWS requires full visibility into the
environment in which the apps live, while also proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application
development and delivery. For some customers this may be a challenge due to limited personnel resources or expertise.
This is where Alert Logic can help. We will automatically show you why, where, and how to respond to vulnerability
findings and provide you with short- and long-term recommendations to stop active attacks.
To help guide the way, following are key considerations for providing sound web application security running on the AWS

To hit your revenue goals, you need to know your lead targets. In this short whiteboard video, Anand Kulkarni, Co-Founder of LeadGenius, shows marketing and sales leaders how to maximize pipeline predictability by backing out of their revenue goals.
The paper will explore the differences between smart-client and thin-client mobile architectures. It will then examine the details of common smart-client architectures, including what type of back-end systems they integrate with, the types of devices they support, how data is managed within the architecture, and development languages that can be used to build the application.
Security from design through deployment.
Mobile devices are now a reality in many organizations. Building on Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM), organizations are increasingly developing their own enterprise apps for specific job tasks to improve productivity, business partnerships, customer satisfaction and bottom-line performance. However, to achieve these benefits, it is imperative that mobile security best practices are incorporated throughout the lifecycle of the application.
Learn what you can do to unify development processes, drive down development costs and improve productivity and coordination across distributed teams. Leverage existing investments in tools, systems and methodologies to increase visibility, control and effectiveness with your application development processes.
In the application economy, speed, innovation and quality have become table stakes. If you can’t meet your customers’ expectations, they will surely find a competitor who can. Whether your organization is in one of the sectors facing the most intense digital competition—insurance, banking, telecommunications or retail—or in a more traditional industry, how rapidly and successfully you embrace a software-driven digital transformation strategy will likely have a profound effect on your organization’s long term viability. Within this transformation sphere, the development of “omnichannel” or “digitally-connected multi-channel” capabilities is a key priority. CA Technologies can help you deliver a consistent, integrated and quality customer experience, regardless of how your customers choose to interact with you.
Agile methods are increasingly popular in application, enterprise and embedded development. Yet the question remains: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Find out how leading companies are beginning to exploit agile's iterative processes for far more than software.
Agile methods have proven effective for software development and have grown in popularity across a number of software disciplines. Agile methods build capabilities using an iterative approach, as opposed to traditional approaches where requirements are defined early and designs are completed in full before a single line of code is written. Agile incrementally defines requirements with priorities, partial component designs and working systems that evolve through iterations called sprints.
The question remains, however: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Agile principles are in line with lean management’s approach. Given that, it seems as though agile principles should directly apply beyond software development. However, the answer is not straightforward, because differences between software and physical components affect how agile is applied. Let’s explore how agile can be applied in light of these differences.
IBM Cloud Private for Data is an
integrated data science, data engineering
and app building platform built on top of
IBM Cloud Private (ICP). The latter is intended
to a) provide all the benefits of cloud
computing but inside your firewall and b)
provide a stepping-stone, should you want
one, to broader (public) cloud deployments.
Further, ICP has a micro-services architecture,
which has additional benefits, which we
will discuss. Going beyond this, ICP for Data
itself is intended to provide an environment
that will make it easier to implement datadriven processes and operations and, more
particularly, to support both the development
of AI and machine learning capabilities, and
their deployment. This last point is important
because there can easily be a disconnect
between data scientists (who often work for
business departments) and the people (usually
IT) who need to operationalise the work of
those data scientists
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.
