Effective workload automation that provides complete management level visibility into real-time events impacting the delivery of IT services is needed by the data center more than ever before. The traditional job scheduling approach, with an uncoordinated set of tools that often requires reactive manual intervention to minimize service disruptions, is failing more than ever due to todays complex world of IT with its multiple platforms, applications and virtualized resources.
Service virtualization tools simulate software components so end-to-end testing can proceed even when dependent components are not available. That means teams can perform integration tests sooner and more often, accelerating the delivery of high-quality, thoroughly tested applications.

The performance of enterprise applications will have a direct impact on business activities and outcomes. The quality of the delivery of applications will depend on how smoothly the underlying data infrastructure operates.
? Optimal application performance and delivery is difficult to achieve in complex environments.
? Many IT infrastructure and operations teams are stretched to the breaking point.
? Predictive analytics and machine learning can be applied to great effect
Business users expect immediate access to data, all the
time and without interruption. But reality does not always
meet expectations. IT leaders must constantly perform
intricate forensic work to unravel the maze of issues that
impact data delivery to applications. This performance
gap between the data and the application creates a
bottleneck that impacts productivity and ultimately
damages a business’ ability to operate effectively.
We term this the “app-data gap.”
Service virtualization offers a solution. Service virtualization tools simulate software components so end-to-end testing can proceed even when dependent components are not available. That means teams can perform integration tests sooner and more often, accelerating the delivery of high-quality, thoroughly tested applications.
A fundamental people-process-technology transformation enables businesses to remain
competitive in today’s innovation economy. Initiatives such as advanced security, fraud detection
services, connected consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices, augmented or virtual reality
experience, machine and deep learning, and cognitively enabled applications drive superior
business outcomes such as predictive marketing and maintenance.
Superior business outcomes require businesses to consider IT a core competency. For IT, an
agile, elastic, and scalable IT infrastructure forms the crucial underpinning for a superior service
delivery model. The more up to date the infrastructure, the more capable it is of supporting the
scale and complexity of a changing application landscape. Current-generation applications must
be supplemented and eventually supplanted with next-generation (also known as cloud-native)
applications — each with very different infrastructure requirements. Keeping infrastructure up
The need to bridge the gap between traditional IT services and cloud application delivery is vital. This HPE Pointnext blueprint guide examines the critical global business services and IT technology best practices for enabling cloud-native applications—from DevOps practices to underlying infrastructure. The blueprint helps IT teams accelerate the development and delivery of cloud-native applications.

This paper introduces five architectural principles guiding the development of the next generation data center (NGDC). It describes key market influences leading a fundamental enterprise IT transformation and the technological trends that support it. The five principles are: scale-out, guaranteed performance, automated management, data assurance, and global efficiencies. Cloud infrastructure delivery models such as IaaS, private clouds, and software-defined data centers (SDDC) are foundations for the NGDC. In an era where IT is expected to ensure productiongrade support with a plethoric flow of new applications and data, these models demonstrate how to eliminate bottlenecks, increase self-service, and move the business forward. The NGDC applies a software-defined everything (SDx) discipline in a traditional, hardware-centric business to gain business advantage.

This brochure looks at how you can accelerate and simplify application delivery. IBM PureApplication is the fastest and simplest way to cloud-enable, deploy, manage, and move applications and middleware across your hybrid cloud.
For more and more organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
In fact, hybrid cloud is the new norm for IT. IDC says more than 80% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud by 20171, and 70% of IT decision-makers say they will always have a mix of traditional IT and cloud architectures.2 With important applications and workloads architected across both on-premises and hybrid, public and private cloud environments, business and IT stakeholders must be able to access data with equal efficiency, reliability and speed—regardless of physical location, infrastructure type or time frame.
Microservices architecture is a new architectural style for creating loosely coupled but autonomous services. Emerging trends in technology—such as DevOps, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), containers, and continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) methods—let organizations create and manage these modular systems on an unprecedented scale that exceeds earlier approaches like service-oriented architecture (SOA). But organizations that refactor monolithic applications into microservices experience widely varying degrees of success. The key to using microservices effectively is a solid understanding of how and why organizations should use microservices to build applications
