Artificial intelligence (AI) is a transformative technology that will change the way organizations interact and will add intelligence to many products and services through new insights currently hidden in vast pools of data. In 2017 alone, venture capitalists invested more than $11.7 billion in the top 100 Artificial Intelligence startups, according to CB Insights1, and the breadth of Artificial Intelligence applications continues to grow. While human-like intelligence will remain the stuff of novels and movies for the near future, most organizations can and should explore practical Artificial Intelligence projects. This technology has the potential to:
• Improve productivity of internal applications
• Increase revenue through enhanced customer interacton and improved customer acquisiiton
• Reduce costs by optimizing operations
• Enhance products and services with "smart" functionality such as vision and voice interaction and control

OpenShift-Kubernetes offers an excellent automated application deployment
framework for container-based workloads. Services such as traffic management
(load balancing within a cluster and across clusters/regions), service discovery,
monitoring/analytics, and security are a critical component of an application
deployment framework. Enterprises require a scalable, battle-tested, and robust
services fabric to deploy business-critical workloads in production environments.
This whitepaper provides an overview of the requirements for such application
services and explains how Avi Networks provides a proven services fabric to

Modern application architectures such as microservices are changing the way that modern enterprises run their infrastructure.
Enterprises have become application-centric, investing significant effort and resources on continuous delivery goals and DevOps
practices to achieve automation of routine IT and operations tasks. And now with the emergence of containerized applications, it
is critical to re-evaluate how application services are provided across data centers and multiple cloud environments.
Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners

Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure
virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling IT
teams to re-architect applications into autonomous microservices from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations
are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.

Digital business initiatives have expanded in scope and complexity as companies have increased the rate of digital innovation to capture new market opportunities. As applications built using fine-grained microservices and functions become pervasive, many companies are seeing the need to go beyond traditional API management to execute new architectural patterns and use cases.
APIs are evolving both in the way they are structured and in how they are used, to not only securely expose data to partners, but to create ecosystems of internal and/or third-party developers.

This assessment shows that enterprises adopt Red Hat Fuse because they believe in a community-based open source approach to integration for modernizing their integration infrastructure that delivers strong ROI. For these organizations, Fuse was part of a larger digital transformation initiative and was also used to modernize integration.
IDC interviewed organizations using Fuse to integrate important business applications across their heterogeneous IT environments. These Red Hat customers reported that Fuse has enabled them to complete substantially more integrations at a higher quality level, thereby supporting their efforts to deliver timely and functional applications and digital services. Efficiencies in application integration with Fuse have generated significant value for study participants, which IDC quantifies at an average value of $75,453 per application integrated per year ($985,600 per organization). They have attained this value by: » Enabling more efficient and effectiv

Enterprise IT is changing. It’s evolving from a rigid, static, manually configured and managed architecture to one where connectivity is dynamic, application services are on demand, and processes are automated. Enterprise networking is evolving along with IT. This has been evident in the past several years in initiatives such as enterprise digitization and as-a-service consumption models, as well as their enablers, including BYOD, IoT and cloud. Add to this, all of the security implications of each initiative. The evolution of IT requires a network that evolves along with IT’s changing requirements – a network that continuously adapts to ever-changing security threats, and evolving digitization, mobility, IoT and cloud requirements.

The ever-rising tide of demands on IT organizations is creating constant pressure on their leaders to upgrade or replace their outmoded legacy systems with new infrastructure technologies that will allow them to keep pace with the speed of business. It is no longer sufficient to manage basic business applications and resources such as ERP, email, and silos of heterogeneous data. The bar has been raised higher than ever, and the role of IT is evolving to meet it. As a result, IT must support applications and services that make it possible for the business to provide new, diverse customer experiences while generating expanding revenues via the emergent crown jewels of business: big data, cloud, and mobility.
To overcome the challenges and risks of the digital era, while positioning their businesses for success, SMBs need to partner with professional services organizations with the expertise that can safely guide them through achieving the following six key IT business initiatives:
A strong information security framework (for external and internal threats)
24x7 application availability
Pervasive, end-to-end data protection
End-to-end professional services
These are no longer capitally strained organizations building an application on a one-off basis, with the cloud this is enterprise transition, this is enterprise applications being shifted to the cloud, new applications being developed in the cloud, and this requires a completely new way of building and consuming IT services for the enterprise.

Businesses in every sector are increasingly reliant on applications to handle everything from
back-end operations to the delivery of new products, services, and customer experiences.
That is why infrastructure system availability and the elimination of unplanned downtime
are more important than ever before. Recent research has shown that the average cost of an
hour of downtime is about half-a-million dollars,1
and this will only increase with the continued
digitization of industries.

The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).

What does a digital transformation look like? It varies from organization to organization, of course, since they have invested in countless systems and applications over the years. Digital transformation consists of building new applications and next-generation architectures on today’s open standards, using on-demand resources. For many organizations, digital transformation also means optimizing existing systems and application resources – integrating, replacing, or abstracting key pieces of their infrastructures into services.
