In Forrester's evaluation of the emerging market for conversational computing platforms, we identified the seven most significant providers — Amazon, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Nuance Communications, Oracle, and Rulai — in the category and evaluated them. This report details our findings about how each vendor scored against nine criteria and where they stand in relation to each other. Application developers should use this review to select the right partners for their conversational computing platform needs.
The idea of load balancing is well defined in the IT world: A network device accepts traffic on behalf ofa group of servers, and distributes that traffic according to load balancing algorithms and the availabilityof the services that the servers provide. From network administrators to server administrators to applicationdevelopers, this is a generally well understood concept.
Respond to customer feedback faster
Organizations are demanding greater flexibility from the software they use. Yet, most line-of-business applications are built on top of rigid commercial databases that make them difficult and expensive to deploy. By building applications on top of Amazon Aurora, a cost-effective database solution from Amazon Web Services (AWS), independent software vendors (ISVs) can get away from commercial databases and the hassles they create for end customers.
In this webinar, AWS Partner Network (APN) Premier Consulting Partner Onica will show you how to leverage Amazon Aurora to make it easier for customers to operate your software, in turn increasing sales. You will also learn how to leverage the breadth and depth of AWS services to improve developer productivity and become more responsive to customer feedback as a result.

Digital transformation projects present many technological and organizational challenges. A key
challenge is developing modern, cloud-native applications that connect customers directly using
automated business processes and decisions. Creating these applications requires a radical change
in how software is built—moving away from traditional, IT-led software development to a process
that lets both developers and business experts contribute directly to application logic.
With cloud, mobile and all the new tools & frameworks that come with them, application development has never been so easy – or so hard.
Join leading application development expert Mark Driver of Gartner as he answers your most pressing questions, including:
What is the impact of lightweight and scripting applications traditional IT process?
How has app development changed with the rise of cloud computing?
How has mobile development changed expectations of developers and the apps they build?
Enterprises use data virtualization software such as TIBCO® Data Virtualization to reduce data bottlenecks so more insights can be delivered for better business outcomes. For developers, data virtualization allows applications to access and use data without needing to know its technical details, such as how it is formatted or where it is physically located. For developers, data virtualization helps rapidly create reusable data services that access and transform data and deliver data analytics with even heavylifting reads completed quickly, securely, and with high performance. These data services can then be coalesced into a common data layer that can support a wide range of analytic and applications use cases. Data engineers and analytics development teams are big data virtualization users, with Gartner predicting over 50% of these teams adopting the technology by 202

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.

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 application economy has forced businesses to transform. To capture new growth opportunities, enterprises are opening up and sharing select data and applications with developers, partners, mobile devices, the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT). One of the byproducts of this transformation is the discovery that legacy data has value in the application economy—so much so that new revenue opportunities emerge as this data is used in new ways.
Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed.
Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.
In this Forrester Consulting report commissioned by Google, it explores cloud development approaches, preferences, challenges, and benefits among development and IT leaders at global enterprises. Among the key findings, it was clear that cloud is on its way to becoming synonymous with modern and innovative when it comes to applications. It also shows that application developers seek more agile tools with containers and functions that enable greater flexibility.
