You can succeed in your digital transfomation and deliver applications and services faster, better, and safely.
How? With Enterprise Agile Delivery. Enterprise Agile Delivery brings a wealth of benefits to organizations and can be adopted by any Agile hybrid framework: SAFe, LESS, Nexus as well as Agile/lean frameworks like Scrum and Kanban.
Yet to achieve Eneterprise Agile Delivery, enterprises need an easy to use modern ALM tool for quick and successful onboarding. Download this white paper to understand how the right solution will help you:
• Strategiaclly align feature releases and backlogs with your overall business strategy
• Identify and prioritize dev and test activities with visibility into project waves and portfolios
• Make data-based decisons for safe releases with real-time insights and multidimensional views into delivery risks
• Sync business, dev, QA and release teams around shared objectives with automated coordination and communication
When it comes to investing in ERP systems, improving the efficiency and responsiveness of business processes is a top concern for SAP customers. However, among IT professionals, safe delivery is of higher priority than ERP digitalization or starting an IT agility transformation.
With SAP S/4HANA, this no longer needs to be a compromise. When moving to SAP S/4HANA, IT professionals need to implement not only the technical upgrade of SAP S/4HANA but also the required customizations, which necessitate an intensive amount of business collaboration and software delivery. And for that to happen, IT needs an enterprise agile delivery solution to gather and implement the business requirements to SAP S/4HANA as quickly as possible without business disruption.
Read this white paper to discover how you can transition to SAP S/4HANA and achieve true enterprise agile delivery — a new standard to deliver changes to your SAP environment. Topics include:
• Sync business and IT to ensure your ERP solu

Enterprise security traditionally relied on a fortress strategy that locked down user endpoints and created walls around the network. Today, this strategy cannot support or secure the use of mobile devices and SaaS capabilities, which exist outside the fortress. As a result, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) have been looking for new solutions that can secure these technologies today, and adapt as threats and business needs change.
The credit card industry’s security model is one example that provides a new way to think about risk and contain it—that is, if you can see past the occasional bad rap it’s gotten from attacks and breaches.
"In a recent global survey conducted on behalf of Google Cloud in association with MIT SMR Custom Studio, respondents were asked: over the last two years, how has your overall confidence in the security of cloud applications and infrastructure changed?
The response was encouraging. 74% of respondents have become more confident in cloud security.
The age of unthinking fears about cloud security is over. Not only is cloud adoption rising steadily across geographies, industries and job functions, but confidence in cloud security is rising as well — to the point where increased security is a major reason enterprises opt for cloud solutions.

The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging.
Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.

Today’s workforce has grown accustomed to using personal technologies that make communication easy and simplify their lives. But many enterprise tools haven’t kept pace. Most current project and portfolio management solutions fail to provide simple ways of performing everyday tasks. They don’t facilitate contextual communication that would help to solve problems, and they lack key functionality: the ability to narrow the focus to relevant data, to drill down for additional information and to efficiently forecast financials and model outcomes.
Download this whitepaper now to see how CA PPM brings more value to your business by providing 15 key features that remain unaddressed by other products on the market today.
Reconstructing resource management tools to simplify tasks, drive collaboration and facilitate action.
People who use technologies at home expect the same ease of use and intuitiveness for the tools they use in the workplace. But enterprise tools aren’t keeping up with the pace of change. Many product and portfolio management (PPM) solutions force resource managers to create entire workflows or navigate through multiple screens just to see the fundamental component of resource management—what their people are working on.
Resource managers also cite shortcomings such as no simple way to perform everyday tasks, communicate in context with others, drill down into key information, narrow the field of resources and forecast financials and model outcomes.

It is not uncommon for SAP system copies, including any post-editing, to take several days to complete. Meanwhile, testing, development and training activities come to a standstill, and the large number of manual tasks in the entire process ties up highly skilled SAP BASIS staff.
Enterprises are looking to automation as a way to accelerate SAP system copies and free up staff. However, this is only one part of the problem: What further complicates the system copy process is the need to safeguard sensitive data and manage huge data volumes while also ensuring that the data used in non-production systems adequately reflects the data in production systems so the quality of development, testing and training activities is not compromised.
This white paper explains how a considerable portion of the SAP system copy process can be automated using the CA Automic Automated System Copy for SAP solution and SNP T-Bone, helping enterprises become more agile.

The Internet of Things (IoT) unleashes valuable business insights through data that’s gathered at every level of a retail organization. With IoT and data analytics, retailers now have the capability to gather insight into customer behavior, offer more personalized experiences, achieve better inventory accuracy, create greater supply chain efficiencies, and so much more. But with data comes great risk. A recent report by security firm Thales and 451 Research found that 43 percent of retailers have experienced a data breach in the past year, with a third reporting more than one breach.1

Achieving and maintaining a high level of information security requires information security professionals with robust skills as well as organisational, technical and operational capabilities. The gap between intent and ability to be secure is evident in our sample of UK large enterprises. Deficient companies will only close that gap when they acquire the necessary capabilities. Some of these capabilities can be purchased as information security tools or application solutions, but it is more prudent for an organisation to consider acquiring these capabilities through a service arrangement with a dedicated security services partner.
