IT and business are changing rapidly. Growth opportunities in new markets, evolving customer behaviors and preferences,
increased competitive pressure, and new standards in regulatory compliance are causing organizations to adapt their
operations and processes.1
Even so, rigid legacy IT infrastructure can keep you from adjusting to change and reduce the business value of IT. These
complex environments often limit flexibility, speed, and scalability, resulting in slow application and service delivery. As
a result, your organization can experience broad effects, especially within your IT operations and development teams.
Developers need resources to be provisioned and scaled quickly so they can begin work immediately when an idea strikes.
They also want more control over those resources while they are in use. However, with complex, hard-to-manage environments and manual processes, IT operations teams often struggle to provide resources and services at the speed that
developers demand. Th

The days of monolithic application development are over.
And while “digital transformation” may sound like a fancy
buzzword that ranks alongside blockchain, agile, and cloud, it’s
not all hype. With transformation comes unprecedented levels
of speed, consistency, and efficiency that are fundamentally
changing the way developers do their jobs.
Yes, that includes you.
Much of the burden and pressure to deliver on the promises made
by the business falls on the shoulders of IT developers. In a world
where users demand new applications, features, and updates
across all their devices in real time, container technology is your
secret weapon. Containers let you work smarter by creating
consistent development environments to rapidly develop and
deliver cloud-native applications that can run anywhere. With
containers, you can also deliver microservices that eliminate
lengthy regression testing cycles, deploy without disruption,
and provide a mechanism for patching or rolling back code on

Agile integration — combining integration technologies, Agile delivery
techniques, and cloud-native platforms to improve speed and security
of software delivery — is a critical foundation for successful digital
transformation. The pace of digital innovation and disruption continues
to accelerate, driving the need for faster change to business models,
processes, and applications. Firms that can quickly reconfigure and
reconnect old and new applications have the advantage, and those with
slow integration processes are at serious risk of losing customers. An
Agile combination of integration and custom development is needed
to meet the customer’s expectations and avoid losing market share to
competitors that do put the customer first.1
For this study, we assessed
the differences between successful and less successful Agile integration
and app delivery strategies, why some firms can change their business
faster, and what makes one integration strategy better than another.

Agile is all about change. IT leaders adopt agile to accelerate the pace of change for their business-differentiable software. Adopting agile requires changes throughout the people, processes and technologies involved in building that software. Development teams must significantly change their structure, culture, tooling and daily activities for agile. And once agile is adopted, the applications under development change on a daily (or more frequent) basis.

DevOps is fast becoming a core competency required to gain competitive advantage. At its most basic level, DevOps is a team approach to drive agile modern application development and operations to deliver high quality critical digital business services.
Cloud services are fundamentally changing the way applications are developed. The near ubiquitous, lowfriction access to cloud computing for developers, who can literally access powerful computing resources at the touch of a keystroke or swipe of a credit card, has fundamentally altered the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
Effective Competition Depends on Continuous Delivery of Quality Software In today’s application economy every company is a software company, no matter what industry it is in:
• Shipping companies depend on logistics software to efficiently route packages, arrange drivers and automate warehouses.
• Retail companies rely on software to manage inventory, engage with customers online and to give in-store associates the tools they need to answer customer questions on the spot.
• Marketing firms lean on applications to gather consumer data and parse it, automate communication with prospects and effectively manage advertising campaigns. The examples are endless.
The point is that in order to compete today, every business must be able to quickly build and tweak software to adjust to always evolving market demands. Ultimately, business success depends on faster development iterations while still maintaining the high quality of service expected by customers, stakeholders and end users.
Speed and agility matter.
Businesses are being disrupted every day by digital upstarts that find ways to address new market requirements before the more established companies can respond.
Despite talented IT teams and years of head start in both architectural and development work, it is still difficult to respond to these challenges using traditional development patterns centered around monolithic software applications. It’s simply impossible to get to market quickly when applications need to be maintained, modified and scaled as a single entity by a large, heavily inter-dependent team.
From this need has arisen the microservices paradigm: a set of patterns for software architecture, development, deployment and culture that focus on speed and agility. From small, independent services and teams to automated deployment to fault tolerance and resiliency, these patterns help accelerate time to market.
TechWell, IBM, uTest, and Keynote partnered on a powerful new survey that explores where today’s testers are spending their time, what obstacles they most often encounter, and where they think their attention should be focused.
Applications are the lifeblood of any business. If you spent time or budget to develop or acquire an application, then it’s important—and it should work. However, tectonic shifts in technology are making it increasingly difficult to achieve this simple objective. Today, the majority of applications are accessed via the web and cloud become the preferred application development platform. Against this backdrop of change, the sheer volume of applications is staggering. Given these rapid, drastic changes, organizations are left to grapple with how to deliver applications in a secure, timely, and reliable manner. Read this whitepaper to learn how your business can tackle this feat by implementing a new architectural vision for delivering application services.

This report shows how each vendor fulfills the criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals and their HR business partners select the right SaaS vendor for their human resources management needs.
With the cloud transforming application development and deployment—enabling organizations to improve flexibility, automate processes, and decrease time to market—some big questions remain. One of the most important issues an organization must address is how it can best employ the smarter tools and limitless scale that the cloud offers. One way that enterprises take advantage of the benefits of the cloud is by deploying their own private cloud, which is a computing
model that fosters agility while allowing organizations to maintain control of their infrastructure, while better securing their
applications and their data.

For many organizations, the wide area network (WAN) infrastructure that connects an enterprise’s remote and branch
offices has not changed for decades. Over the years, organizations consolidated many regional data centers into a few
highly available data center locations which meant that remote locations had to connect to centralized applications over
WANs and all internet traffic went through these data centers as well. This introduced bandwidth constraints and latency
issues. The development in WAN optimization provided incremental and measurable improvement in WAN performance
and provided some bandwidth cost containment. However, that technology typically was only deployed at the most
problematic sites that struggled to achieve acceptable levels of performance and user experience. It did not solve all the
issues with WAN connectivity.
WAN infrastructure planning was limited to increases in capacity that were met by provisioning additional carrier MPLS
