IT and business are changing rapidly. Growth opportunities in new markets, evolving customer behaviors and preferences,
increased competitive pressure, and new standards in regulatory compliance are causing organizations to adapt their
operations and processes.1
Even so, rigid legacy IT infrastructure can keep you from adjusting to change and reduce the business value of IT. These
complex environments often limit flexibility, speed, and scalability, resulting in slow application and service delivery. As
a result, your organization can experience broad effects, especially within your IT operations and development teams.
Developers need resources to be provisioned and scaled quickly so they can begin work immediately when an idea strikes.
They also want more control over those resources while they are in use. However, with complex, hard-to-manage environments and manual processes, IT operations teams often struggle to provide resources and services at the speed that
developers demand. Th

Countless QA teams continue using subpar testing tools because they can’t stand the thought of migrating thousands of test artifacts or training testers on an entirely new platform. Many would prefer the status quo of using their current toolset because they believe that a migration will be painful, or that it will slow them down. But there’s a problem with that logic: The longer they wait, the more obsolete their current toolset becomes, and the further removed QA becomes from the rest of the software development lifecycle — which often means that testing lags behind, remaining a roadblock on the agile transformation journey.
This white paper will cover:
o The true cost of using inadequate legacy tools, and why migrating now is better than waiting
o Six steps to make migration as painless as possible for your QA and development teams
o How the entire SDLC benefits from a flexible toolset that integrates quality into agile processes

Agile is all about change. IT leaders adopt agile to accelerate the pace of change for their business-differentiable software. Adopting agile requires changes throughout the people, processes and technologies involved in building that software. Development teams must significantly change their structure, culture, tooling and daily activities for agile. And once agile is adopted, the applications under development change on a daily (or more frequent) basis.
Speed and agility matter.
Businesses are being disrupted every day by digital upstarts that find ways to address new market requirements before the more established companies can respond.
Despite talented IT teams and years of head start in both architectural and development work, it is still difficult to respond to these challenges using traditional development patterns centered around monolithic software applications. It’s simply impossible to get to market quickly when applications need to be maintained, modified and scaled as a single entity by a large, heavily inter-dependent team.
From this need has arisen the microservices paradigm: a set of patterns for software architecture, development, deployment and culture that focus on speed and agility. From small, independent services and teams to automated deployment to fault tolerance and resiliency, these patterns help accelerate time to market.

By gaining timely visibility into build and test results, development teams can be more proactive in dealing with defects, and project teams gain vital information into each build, including which requirements have been addressed.
When it comes to the Internet of Things (IoT), the evolution of connected devices and data can often make it difficult for teams — including designers, engineers and communication specialists — to efficiently work together. The SOLIDWORKS connected devices ecosystem, however, provides development capabilities that easily bring teams together to manage complexities and synchronize and facilitate product development. This webinar further explains smart, connected devices and how SOLIDWORKS can leverage these capabilities to help drive business change.
To be successful, businesses must select a secure, scalable and reliable computing platform. At the same time, they also demand openness so development teams can slect tools & technologies they are skilled in using. In this book, discover how IBM LinuxOne platform can play a critical role in developing your enterprise computing strategy and understand the full overview of the value of LinuxONE when compared to other platforms.

Service virtualization enables development and test teams to simulate and model the dependencies of unavailable or limited services and data.
Voke conducted a survey of 505 participants from technology and non-technology companies to explore their use of service virtualization and its results. Organizations using service virtualization experienced fewer defects, reduced software cycles, and increased customer satisfaction.
The 2015 Service Virtualization Market Snapshot™ REPORT by Voke Research provides real-world data to help you justify the investment in service virtualization.
The digital economy is changing expectations for IT organizations, driving the need to rapidly provide resources to development, QA, and line-of-business teams to develop and roll out applications. While business wants IT to be more responsive, IT must address the need for speed with policy-driven governance, compliance, security, and performance.
In our eBook, “Top 3 Reasons Why You Need Cloud Management,” we define the need for cloud management platforms, expand on the requirements and take a closer look at how other organizations are deploying cloud management platforms to improve management of the entire IT services delivery lifecycle.
In today’s digital economy, the ability to bring new software applications and updates to market quickly is a key to competitive advantage. For companies in diverse industries, the goal is the same: Get high-quality software into production as fast as possible.
In this quest to accelerate release cycles, organizations must get beyond historical barriers that impede the rapid delivery of the software that keeps an enterprise competitive. In too many cases, processes tend to be inefficient, slow, and prone to failed releases. Much of the blame for the problem can be laid at the feet of organizational structures that mandate conflicting goals for the two key departments at either end of the application development chain: development/testing (dev/test) and operations.
Where dev/test teams want to push their applications and updates into production quickly, operations teams want to go more slowly in order to maintain control and keep applications and systems available.

Application performance management (APM) focuses on monitoring, maintaining, and optimizing the performance and health of business applications across development, test, datacenter, and network environments. As mission-critical enterprise application environments become more complex because of the increased use of cloud, big data, and mobility, APM is becoming a top priority for IT teams that need to quickly and cost effectively track end-to-end application performance, identify and remediate the root cause of performance problems, and maintain service levels required by end users and business stakeholders. SaaS-delivered APM solutions offer rapid time to value for IT organizations that need to implement APM quickly with minimal disruption to the business.

Modern application delivery leaders realize that their primary goal is to deliver value to the business and its customers, faster. For many, this is a significant shift from the past, when they primarily focused on cost control and efficiency.
Today, they must connect the work they do and the results they produce to business outcomes. To do this, application development and delivery (AD&D) leaders use a new set of metrics that help them monitor and improve the value they deliver, based on feedback from business partners and customers. In this report, we highlight these new metrics that connect business outcomes to app delivery performance — as well as the practices and tools that modern application delivery teams and their AD&D leaders use to collect and report them.
The number of identities that an organization must control and secure is exploding as companies support the evolution of business. Traditional users, customers and partners, outsourced or offshore IT, support and development teams, and new users from mergers and acquisitions are working from increasingly distributed locations and devices and to be efficient they need the right set of privileges across a diverse set of servers and applications.
So, how can an organization successfully control privilege for all of these identities to mitigate identity-related risk without slowing down the business?
From this webinar you will learn:
• Forrester’s predictions for next generation privileged identity management.
• How best-in-class organizations are successfully controlling privilege and mitigating risks
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 running battle with cyberthreats, your first line of defense is your IT staff: the system and network administrators, SOC and NOC operators, incident response and forensics analysts, and application development and QA teams. Are these IT professionals ready to take on an ever-growing army of innovative, persistent cybercriminals and hackers? Probably not, if you expect them to acquire the knowledge and skills they need through self-directed study and on-the-job training. There is too much to learn, and few members of the IT staff have the time to research every new threat. And you can’t afford to suffer through APTs, breaches and data leakages just to provide “teachable moments” for IT personnel. There is another solution. Security simulation immerses IT professionals in a realistic online environment and challenges them to fill the roles of cyberattackers and cyberdefenders.
