Read this white paper to learn how rPath's approach to automation relieves IT from the classic tradeoff between speed and control. It enables IT organizations to deliver applications much faster-in minutes-while maintaining control.
By 2020, Gartner predicts 100% of new entrants to IT – and 80% of historical vendors –
will offer subscription-based business models to their customers. These organizations are
prioritizing the cloud over on-premises data centers and legacy software, so they can more
efficiently deliver highly available, scalable, and cost-effective service offerings.
To remain competitive, you need to modernize your approach to .NET development – and
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the ideal place to start.
This whitepaper will explore best practices for containerizing your Windows workloads on
AWS, including how to design your containers, which AWS services to leverage, and how
to modernize your existing .NET applications for the cloud.
Securing cloud environments is different from securing traditional data centers and endpoints.
The dynamic nature of the cloud requires continuous assessment and automation to avoid
misconfigurations, compromises, and breaches.
It can also be difficult to gain complete visibility across dynamic and rapidly changing cloud
environments — limiting your ability to enforce security at scale. On top of these challenges, cloud
governance is critical to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements and security policies as
Because cloud deployments are not just implemented once and left untouched, organizations need
to consider how to integrate security into their CI/CD pipeline and software development lifecycle.
Implementing a security solution that addresses cloud challenges requires deep security and cloud
expertise that organizations often do not have.
Once in the cloud, organizations manage and create environments via automation, adapt their
workloads to changes by automa
Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined
approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in
large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands.
Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture
and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing
organizations to create better software faster.
As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to
understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear
that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing
their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps
environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting
Learn how you can simplify compliance and automate the transition from development to production with complete traceability. Benefit from process definition and enforcement, and automatic generation of audit trails. Add consolidation to single, global repository where you move code into a single software change and configuration management instance that works globally, but performs as if everything were local. Result: savings and productivity.
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.
Drive quality earlier in the development process with continuous testing.
Large development organizations have increasingly been adopting select agile practices to enable faster development, create more reliable software, and reduce costs. Chief among these practices is providing developers early and frequent feedback from users, from other developers, and especially from the programming, build, and test tools. In the latter category, continuous integration and continuous testing are emerging as valuable techniques for identifying errors early so they can be corrected immediately by the developer who made the code changes.
In this whitepaper I argue that the person most affected by the introduction of agile or extreme programming techniques is not the software or quality assurance engineer, but the build manager. And the build manager can no longer make do with home grown tools; software production automation tools are required to make agile development a build reality.
This paper looks at the needs of build and release management, how those needs are met by open source and commercial tools that go way beyond the likes of Make or Ant, and the real costs of creating and maintaining a homegrown system.

In recent years, the term “cloud” has appeared seemingly everywhere. But it’s become difficult to understand what precisely someone means when they say “cloud.” The National Institute of Standards and Technology defines cloud computing as a “model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g. networks, servers, storage, applications and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.”
This white paper examines key challenges to software development and discusses how companies can leverage best practices and IBM Rational solutions to more profitably and effectively develop software for safety-critical projects while complying with the DO-178C standard.
In order to meet the changing demands of their customers, organizations need the right solution that can help them harness the vast amounts of customer data in ways that yield personalized, seamless customer experiences. That solution is IBM Watson Engagement Advisor.
Agile methods have proven effective for software development and have grown in popularity across a number of software disciplines. Agile methods build capabilities using an iterative approach, as opposed to traditional approaches where requirements are defined early and designs are completed in full before a single line of code is written. Agile incrementally defines requirements with priorities, partial component designs and working systems that evolve through iterations called sprints.
The question remains, however: Do the 12 agile principles apply to more than just software? Agile principles are in line with lean management’s approach. Given that, it seems as though agile principles should directly apply beyond software development. However, the answer is not straightforward, because differences between software and physical components affect how agile is applied. Let’s explore how agile can be applied in light of these differences.
