In today’s application economy, everyone is in the software business. Auto makers are putting Wi-Fi hotspots in their cars. Watches are trading gears for motherboards. Even
soda fountains have evolved from dumb machines into instrumented devices with touch-screen user interfaces.
This digital transformation is changing the way applications are developed, tested, moved through environments and released into production—and it’s putting new demands on IT teams with which they’re struggling to keep up.
At a high level, this is because the application delivery systems and processes at many enterprises were put in place when IT only had to push out an annual or semi-annual release. But as market pressures and executive mandates have forced teams to deliver innovations faster and more frequently, a new set of development, testing, automation and customer challenges have appeared—acting as obstacles that stand between you and your digital transformation goals.

Data breaches are bad for business, so every enterprise needs security. In the past this was expensive, because security products were designed for companies with deep pockets and teams of experts. But that's changed. New 'cloud based' services, such as those offered by Qualys, are fast to deploy, safe and easy to use. What's more they're even more affordable. With growing demands from customers and regulators for security, now is a good time to invest in security. Leading cloud-based security services deliver a professional level of security assurance in a form that fits the circumstances and pockets of small businesses.
According to Mary Johnston Turner, Research Vice President at IDC; "Breaking down technology specific management as well as data silos also facilitates faster infrastructure and application rollouts, reduces human errors, and improves overall business agility.Cloud based management, monitoring and analytics help to improve collaboration between IT operations and developer teams by stabilizing service levels and monitoring usage to support accurate charge back."
Pricing needs to support a brand’s overall marketing platform. But is that enough to assure consistency of message throughout the organization? Given the far-reaching influence a price position has on a brand, and how various departments need to be aligned to support that position, an argument can be made for treating pricing as a core competency within the organization.
What does this mean in real terms? Pricing is a day-to-day concern for numerous departments throughout the organization. While marketing might use pricing tactics to grow market share, sales teams chase volume goals, and product development teams lose sleep over the price image each product projects.

The demand on software development teams is greater than ever. With the cultural move towards DevOps, the implementation of CI/CD systems, and the desire to operate in an agile manner, developers are being asked to push out more software - and in shorter periods of time - than ever before. In turn, developers are increasingly relying on open source libraries, or pre-built pieces of code available online, which allow them to add functionality to their code without having to build it from scratch. As a result, software today is rarely completely made of first-party code and is more often "assembled" from other sources.
Today more than ever, business wins depend on teamwork. And the teams that make things happen are bigger, more diverse, and more distributed than ever. People are working at home, in coffee shops, and on the road. They span multiple time zones. They use every imaginable device, relying heavily on their mobile phones. They grapple with deadlines because their tools don’t connect. With so much to manage, people are challenged to be truly present and focused in the moment. To make the most of each opportunity and maintain business momentum, they need tools that allow them to work intuitively. Effortlessly. That fade into the background, leaving them free to keep focused, stay engaged, get inspired, innovate. That allow them to connect as if they were in person, when they’re not.

Azure has been through many rounds of changes that have significantly affected the ways in which .NET and other developers interact with the platform.
The shift in strategy has been rocky at times. In 2011, technology reviewers described Microsoft Azure as a confusing platform with a difficult to use web-based interface and incomprehensible documentation. Since then, the teams working on the platform have gradually improved it, resulting in a much more user-friendly platform that offers a well-organized array of services.
Every industry is going through digital transformation. Whether retail, manufacturing, media, finance, or software - in order to survive organizations are changing the way they operate in order to meet the demands of today’s connected customers. Whether it’s Uber redefining urban transportation for consumers, Slack enabling teams to collaborate in totally new ways, or Docker rivaling legacy virtualization providers, innovation is being powered by technology, and it’s happening faster than ever before.
Agile development teams and IT operations teams often become so consumed with their own daily challenges that collaboration between them is severely lacking or non-existent. The problem with this is that manageability requirements become an afterthought to the development process, and agile teams may roll out applications that IT ops can't effectively monitor and run.
While enabling cross-team collaboration is mutually beneficial— and ultimately improves the business' bottom line—, implementing it requires some effort at the organizational level to instill changes, and the right tools will help. Read this white paper to learn guidelines for adapting your application development and management model to enable Dev/Ops information sharing and collaboration, and learn how the cloud can be leveraged for this purpose.
As the networks become ever more essential to business processes, they are also increasing rapidly in size and complexity. Many factors can affect network availability and performance—increasing traffic, configuration problems, failed network elements, changes, and more. Since not all of these problems are hard failures, managing the network to detect and correct business-impacting problems requires new tools, strategies, and initiatives. To deliver the availability and performance business demands, network management teams need to optimize fault management and ensure availability, unify fault and performance management, automate change and configuration management to ensure compliance, and automate IT processes. This integrated approach is called Automated Network Management (ANM).
A growing business is usually a good thing, but for talent acquisition teams, growth on a large scale can pose some unique recruiting challenges. That’s because rapid expansion can confront talent acquisition with the need to ensure that as the company grows, quality of hire doesn’t shrink.

learn how to use. This couldn't be further from the truth — in fact, it only takes a few hours for sales reps to learn everything they need to know to get the most out of an automation system.
