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.
The Travis Perkins Group is a leading supplier of building materials to the UK’s building and construction industry. For more than 200 years, the company has grown to deliver more than 100,000 products through 2,000 branch and store locations nationwide. Changing market demands, shareholder expectations and competition demand that the company continually enhance its performance. Yet, changing more than 200 years of tradition can be complicated. Traditional planning practices had led the company down the road to a bureaucratic project management office (PMO), and with the introduction of agile and CA Technologies, the once controlling environment has shifted into a service-oriented centre.
Customer obsession has created a business environment of continual disruption. Constant change is forcing execs to recognize that traditional planning and delivery practices don’t sustain the ability to focus on strategy while delivering new capabilities. To adapt to an environment where change is the new normal, project management office (PMO) leaders and enterprise architecture (EA) strategists are expanding Agile methods, but scaling Agile to the enterprise requires significant process, organization, and cultural change. This report identifies best practices for tackling this challenge.
In today’s competitive world, agile methodologies promise faster delivery, higher quality, increased productivity and better alignment with your company strategy. But while many companies introduce agile approaches at the team level, they often fail when scaling agile to the program and portfolio level. CA Agile Ready > Sync > Go provides a complete solution for building and launching successful, enterprise-scale agile programs. Integrating the industry leading expertise of CA Agile Transformation Consulting with the CA Agile Central enterprise-class planning and tracking platform, Ready > Sync > Go can help you build and launch a high-performing agile program in as little as three months.
As organizations shift toward enterprise agile, tools for planning and management become more important. Application leaders looking to facilitate coordination and collaboration while enabling insight into the flow of work in their organizations should consider enterprise agile planning tools.
We can quote innumerable stats to impress, but there is no need—it is apparent that the world is getting more connected. Today’s connectivity will seem primitive in a few years as the connectivity extends beyond smartphones, tablets and computers to concepts such as devices implanted in the human body.

With rising demands for shorter lead-times, faster throughput, improved quality and lower costs, automated manufacturing systems have become essential to the success of U.S. manufacturing. Their benefits stretch across numerous industries and production methods; however, their complexity can oftentimes be intimidating to first-time investors. Within this white paper, manufacturers can uncover the information necessary to properly plan and specify the integration of a new automated manufacturing system.
As an early adopter of automation, SEW-Eurodrive in Lyman, S.C., has experience working with a wide variety of automated technologies and automation suppliers. So what has been its biggest takeaway after having worked more than a decade in manufacturing automation? Make sure to partner with an experienced and trusted supplier.

Suddenly, the network is cool again. Tech trends such as the Internet of Things, software-defined networking and growing end-user expectations all add up to a demand for “dialtone” network performance and reliability. But as the data deluge continues to accelerate, and as organizations continue to rely on multiple clouds to achieve business goals, how can the network keep up, much less meet tomorrow’s demands?
This e-book looks at the trends that are impacting the enterprise network—the modern network—the issues it creates for NetOps professionals, and how organizations can act today to plan for tomorrow.
Hard- und Softwaresysteme werden immer effizienter, ausgereifter und nutzbringender, nehmen tendenziell allerdings auch an Komplexität zu. Als z. B. virtuelle Maschinen die Bare-Metal-Softwareumgebungen ablösten, entstand durch die Virtualisierung eine neue Ebene der Komplexität, die die IT-Teams mit einplanen und managen mussten.
Auch der in den letzten Jahren zunehmende Einsatz von Microservices und Containern hat dazu geführt, dass immer mehr Komponenten in eine einzige Anwendung integriert und somit auch orchestriert werden müssen. In der Regel sind die für den IT-Betrieb zuständigen Teams jedoch in ihrer Fähigkeit begrenzt, dieser wachsenden Komplexität Herr zu werden. Naheliegend wäre sicher, mehr Personal einzustellen, dies ist allerdings keine sehr wirtschaftliche Lösung, die zudem keine guten Skalierungsmöglichkeiten bietet.

Rising costs, declining reimbursements and the mandate to improve quality: these are key challenges that surgery centers face every day. For years, costs have continued to climb, while reimbursements have declined or, at best, remained stable. To address these issues and succeed in the future, surgery centers need to develop comprehensive plans that leverage both supply chain and clinical expertise. For many facilities, the next step is to conduct a clinical assessment that identifies new ways to improve inventory management and clinical practices. The heart of this approach from Cardinal Health is a clinical team that leverages OR and supply chain expertise to understand, prioritize and pursue opportunities for improving the health of patient and your practice alike. To learn more, read this case study and find out how two surgery centers have used a clinical assessment from Cardinal Health to improve performance.
When application and database numbers increase, how does an organisation avoid overstretching its staff, multiplying costs, and complications? Many companies are using Oracle Exadata—a platform that’s powerful, optimised, and cloud-ready when you are. And they’re seeing, on average, a five-year ROI of 429 percent, 94 percent less unplanned downtime, and 103 percent improvement in transaction rates. See our infographic for more significant findings.
IDC has put the business value of the Oracle Exadata to the test by interviewing eight customers. They reported better business outcomes and efficiencies as a result of improved database performance, scalability, and reliability. The resulting whitepaper also reveals business value highlights, such as 429 percent five-year ROI, US$222,000 additional revenue per 100 users, and 94 percent less unplanned downtime.
There’s no turning back from the fact that disruptive business automation is here. As artificially intelligent functionality delivers more capabilities that we increasingly take for granted, it’s difficult to grasp all the implications of this transformation. In this eBook, the aim is to illustrate what it means for business, for the people who work in those businesses, and for people served by those businesses every day.
To better understand how automation is changing business, and with the generous support of CA Technologies, we reached out to 39 experts to get their opinion.
By providing practical insights into what is happening today and what may be just over the horizon, I believe this eBook will be a valuable resource for anyone planning an automation strategy.
