Organizations are drowning in content. They don't know what they have, and they can't find what they need when they need it. While they spend significant time and money to manage content stored among a host of disconnected systems, their efforts are less than fully effective.
Managing service delivery in todayís complex and dynamic business environments demands new and different approaches from IT. The explosive growth and the rate of change of information has brought particularly daunting challenges for IT that have contributed to incredibly complex underlying infrastructures. To get a true picture of all of the components necessary to support an IT or Business Service, you must access and bring together data that resides in disparate data silos throughout the enterprise.
Business runs on content and that content must be managed holistically, across the entire business. However, managing content is, in itself, not enough to drive business. Enterprises must incorporate ECM with other IT management systems to provide complete Business Service Management (BSM).
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Application management requires visibility from multiple vantage points within the IT enterprise, combined with a centralized information store that pulls the technology pieces of the application puzzle into a coherent whole.
To meet the challenges of intense competition and increasing customer demands, companies must tightly align their IT service management with business issues and priorities. This paper outlines the maturity steps involved in the progression towards proactive Business Service Management (BSM) and explains how ASG's metaCMDB helps secure its seamless adoption.
Application Portfolio Optimization (APO) provides executives with tools and information to assess the quality and condition of application assets as well as a means for understanding the impact of proposed application changes.
End-user expectations and high levels of performance against Service Level Agreements (SLAs) must be achieved or organizations risk the loss of business. This paper details key capabilities needed for successful end-user monitoring and provides critical considerations for delivering a successful end-user experience.
Virtualization is now mainstream. Enterprises continue to heavily invest in virtualization projects and while short term hardware and cost saving benefits are being achieved, few enterprises achieve anywhere close to the full potential of virtualization as they struggle with new problems like assuring performance and availability, preventing VM sprawl, and maximizing resource utilization
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
In Q4, 2009, ENTERPRISE MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATES (EMA) analysts worked with ASG to research how executives in IT and within the lines of business use dashboards to gain holistic insights into IT services as they impact business outcomes.
This paper can help you achieve successful legacy modernization projects. It presents practical steps for starting application modernization projects and describes the benefits of three high payback strategies. It also reviews the criteria for evaluating a variety of modernization tools.

Reduce costs and scale to meet customer expectations
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery models are being adopted faster than ever to meet business and consumer demand, prompting organizations to move their customer-facing applications to the cloud. As a result, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) need to modernize their applications to deliver the flexibility and scale customers expect, without the restrictions and high costs of running applications on commercial databases. mLogica provides deep industry expertise, backed by powerful engineering, to help ISVs quickly modernize their applications on Amazon Aurora and drive greater business value with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Register for our webinar to learn how mLogica and AWS can help you transform your business on the cloud, so you can deliver modern, high-performing solutions to your customers.
Many business leaders know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are critical to their future but don’t know where to start. Those who do have an AI/ML strategy struggle to find qualified data scientists; and once they find them, even advanced data scientists need a lot of time—even months—to build and deploy ML models. These challenges put significant limits on the range and number of problems a business can solve.
In this webinar, learn how H2O Driverless AI on Amazon Web Services (AWS) automates the best practices of leading data scientists to create advanced machine learning models automatically. With these production-ready models, relative newcomers to AI/ML can generate reliable results and scale-up AI programs that anticipate and capitalize on trends, optimize supply chains, understand customer demand, match consumers with goods and services, and much more.

Implement ML successfully with minimal data science expertise.
Modernize your applications quickly
Many organizations are finding their legacy technology to be inadequate due to its rigidity and high costs. In search of more flexible and cost-effective solutions, many are turning to the cloud. Most Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), however, still build their solutions on commercial databases that are expensive and time-consuming for their customers to deploy and maintain. This is a significant undertaking that can hinder adoption.
To address these challenges head on, ISVs can modernize their applications on Amazon Aurora, a database offering from AWS that combines the reliability and performance of commercial databases with the cost-effectiveness and flexibility of open source solutions. In this webinar, you will learn how Virtusa, an AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner, can accelerate your application modernization journey and help you grow your business.

Trupanion, a Seattle-based medical insurance provider for cats and dogs, needed to find data insights quickly. With only 1% of pet owners insured, the process of evaluating a claim to approve or deny payment was manual and time-consuming. Building accurate predictive models for decision-making required manpower, time, and technology that the small company simply did not have.
DataRobot Cloud, built on AWS, helped Trupanion create an automated method for building data models using machine learning that reduced the time required to process claims from minutes to seconds. Join our webinar to hear how Trupanion transformed itself into an AI-driven organization, with robust data analysis and data science project prototyping that empowered the company to make better decisions and optimize business processes in less time and at a reduced cost.
