Marketing and technology partners must collaborate as never before in order to delight and engage customers “in the moment.”
Previously stove-piped functions are starting to work together to take a holistic approach to create great digital experiences at enterprise
scale, but organizations see the need for more work to create relevant, integrated digital customer experiences in real time.
IBM commissioned Forrester Consulting to discover how developers and marketers are working together to provide customers
exceptional digital experiences reliably, quickly, and seamlessly.
The study found that while the mandate to collaborate has been heard, there is still work to be done to move to the next level and put in
place technology, processes, and culture to create digital customer experience in real time.

With increasing demands being made on enterprise IT
departments to keep up with the accelerating pace of business,
infrastructure has to enable more dynamic, eficient application
and IT service delivery. Unfortunately, more ofen than not, IT
provisioning can be a bottleneck. Traditional means are ofen
ineficient. When developers plan their projects and estimate the
server, networking, and storage resources they need, they ofen
overestimate and pad their requests to ensure what actually
gets provisioned is adequate. The formal request comes via an IT
ticket, and then the waiting begins. Days, possibly weeks go by
before they get the resources they need, and all the while they’re
unable to iterate on and evolve core business oferings.

With a global monthly reach consisting of more than 500 million mobile users and billions of requests, Tapjoy historically relied heavily on their IT footprint. They needed an environment
that would allow them to accelerate the development and improve the performance of their big data algorithms, which help drive real time decision-making that delivers the best content to their global audience. Tapjoy engineers opted for a cloud-based model to run their big data platform instead of bare metal, prioritizing agility and the ability to scale over
bare metal performance.
Initially they deployed at AWS, but as the platform grew and their AWS costs increased, Tapjoy began to look for ways to better manage their growing public-cloud spend while increasing efficiency. They needed to do this without compromising the cloud experience they were giving their developers.
Open-source is becoming an increasingly critical component being leveraged by agile enterprises. The capital investment required to develop next generation business solutions demands that components be built and targeted to the platform best suited for the task. Understanding the tools available for you or your developers to gain efficiencies to build solutions once, and deploy on a choice of scalable and reliable platforms is of paramount importance.

The traditional technical and cultural challenges that large, hierarchical IT organizations face become more visible during times of IT transformation, such as the adoption of cloud technologies, DevOps practices, and agile methodologies. Persistent organizational culture is organic, and it can be extremely difficult for IT leaders to dictate it effectively from the top down. IT leaders can, however, use technology to encourage proper incentive structures in all levels of the organization. This paper explores the role of OpenShift by Red Hat in creating an atmosphere where creative and passionate developers can succeed frequently and quickly. Their success means decisionmakers can impact organizational culture and more rapidly achieve their goals. In this way, IT leaders can harness the efficiency and persistence of spontaneous organization, despite the inherent limitations of hierarchical systems.
Cloud in the enterprise has grown up. It’s no longer just a sandbox for developers, or a sneaky backdoor way for business units to get more IT resources fast. Now, IT leaders are seeing the big picture: cloud as the de facto model for delivering the whole of IT to the whole of the business. Increasingly, they’re adopting a Cloud-First mindset.
As IT departments’ lists of backlogged application development projects keep growing, so does the speed of new development requests from line-of-business personnel. For many IT departments, the speed of business — the speed of requests for additional developments — can’t be met under current practices. This inability to keep pace with critical development requests, supporting timely strategy modifications, seriously impacts an enterprise’s profitability. The solution FICO advocates — one that accounts for budget constraints, legacy operational realities and quality assurance — is to empower line-of-business personnel as Citizen Developers, giving them the right set of technology assets to quickly, safely and cost effectively participate in application development.

Maximizing your developers effectiveness and efficiency is key to enabling growth and positioning your IT Infra- structure as an asset within your organization. Making certain you have considered all the angles is crucial in your Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) success.
The following checklist will help you assess your needs and possible business impacts to aid in your decision process for choosing which PaaS will benefit your developers, your infrastructure team, and your business.
The clear benefits of agile development—better collaboration, incremental delivery, early error detection and the elimination of unnecessary work—have made it the default approach for many teams. Agile methods are also being adopted by systems engineering teams to deliver the same benefits. Some developers have questioned whether requirements fall into the category of unnecessary work, and can be cut down or even completely eliminated. Meanwhile, teams developing complex products, systems and regulated IT continue to have requirements-driven legacy processes.
So how does requirements management fit in an agile world? This paper argues that requirements management can bring significant value to agile development in regulated IT and complex product development projects, and sets out the characteristics of an effective requirements management approach in an agile environment.
If you’re like most people, the reason you’re looking at OpenStack for a private cloud is because your developers fell in love with public cloud, and you want to give them the same experience, but with better economics, control, and performance of a private cloud.
The reality is that instead of looking to replicate the public cloud experience, privately, we often run in to people that want to fiddle with every aspect of the infrastructure and OpenStack® itself.
Companies start off looking for a public cloud experience, but quickly become more interested in the choice of hypervisor, network models and storage architecture -- none of which are even up for discussion in a public cloud. These questions aren’t wrong to ask, they just shouldn’t matter to you. What should matter is the experience your developers will have in your private cloud,
how your apps will run, and how your private cloud will integrate with your existing systems and apps.
The digital transformation that organizations are striving for today requires a mindset of "no limits" in terms of securely exposing critical business assets for internal and external consumption. In order to be an agile, digital business, enterprises need to seamlessly connect across hybrid environments, applications, data and processes, keeping a keen eye on an open cloud strategy. They also need a secure integration framework to provide controlled access, a single dashboard providing performance insights, and easy access to digital assets for your developers. This webcast will explore all of these areas in depth, to support your enterprise's quest to become a next-generation digital business.
"Helping enterprise IT developers, architects, and mobile development leaders select the right platform partners
The mobile application development platform market continues to grow, evolve and mature in response to escalating customer requirements.
Gartner has assessed 20 major vendors that enable enterprise IT developers to create mobile applications for customers, partners, and employees."
Perhaps the biggest transformation in enterprise IT since the public cloud emerged is the move toward “mobile-first” application development. As mobility continues to become the new enterprise standard, developers are looking for frameworks that provide the tools they need to create innovative mobile applications without sacrificing their existing investments.
While there are proven, enterprise-ready frameworks and platforms for developing and deploying traditional desktop applications, the mobile application development landscape is still evolving. Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) attempts to fill the gap between traditional application platforms and mobile applications. It is the new middleware, exposing APIs and functions that enable developers to rapidly build new mobile apps and mobile-enable legacy enterprise applications.
