"Recently, Open Source Software has been gaining in popularity due to the ability it provides users to view and modify source code. Another attraction is the perceived cost savings. Read the white paper that takes a look at the truth about those savings.
Initially, deployment environments like JBoss have an advantage-zero initial software acquisition costs. However, the white paper will show how, over time, IBM WebSphere Application Server (WAS) and IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment (WAS ND) win the TCO battle. Learn more."
Offshore development has been embraced by the vast majority of commercial software vendors and enterprise application development groups. Why? Because a world flattened by globalization makes it possible to improve competitiveness by taking advantage of the easy exchange of low-cost, high-quality technical skills.
The cloud services market is now directly addressing the needs of application developers, with an emerging class of services that provides fast, on-demand provisioning; instant scale up and down capabilities, and support for multi-tier application architectures, as well as workload migration capabilities and a pay-as-you go model.
Enterprises understand the importance of securing web applications to protect critical corporate and customer data. What many don't understand, is how to implement a robust process for integrating security and risk management throughout the web application.
Implementing source code vulnerability testing in the software development life cycle. Finding and fixing security issues early is an application project can help reduce development costs while improving software quality. Source code security tools implemented and used across the software development life cycle are known to provide such results.

For internal and external applications, Web API’s provide flexibility and unlock the value of your data and software. However, ongoing API development, deployment and delivery require extensive domain knowledge in operating an enterprise-class infrastructure. Without this expertise, scalability, reliability, and security are compromised.
Even with the latest devices, your mobile workforce may not have
what they need to get the job done. Without a strategy to provide them with data and applications, they’re forced to work without them or find workarounds that can compromise security.
Today’s workers are constantly on the move, and IT departments are scrambling to keep up. Access to email is not enough. You must address the legacy applications that your employees can’t easily access from their mobile devices, knowing that app development can be cost prohibitive and complex. And you have to have a strategy in place to secure and manage every application in use.
In today's business environment, organizations of all sizes are struggling to maintain the advanced IT capabilities they need to be competitive while reining in cost and complexity. Shifting to off-premise hosted models, such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and business process outsourcing, is a common activity undertaken to manage costs.
One of the main challenges businesses face in adopting cloud and SaaS delivery models is the task of synchronizing data and integrating the multitude of systems already in datacenters with new cloud-based applications, not to mention within the cloud itself. Traditionally, this required organizations to leverage existing tools as well as custom development.
This white paper looks at how two enterprises encountered problems with cloud integration and adopted IBM WebSphere Cast Iron to solve their immediate problems and extend use more broadly across their organizations.

Many leading organizations that have invested substantial time and money building a web content management (WCM) system to run their web site often face a crossroads. Do they continue to support their own custom-built application and extend it to address the needs of the business today, or do they look to purchase a commercial software product to address these requirements. This leads to a delicate stand-off between the web site business owners (usually marketing), the development team (usually in IT) and the Finance office.
ESG research indicates that the corporate usage of public cloud computing in the form of cloud-based infrastructure services, business applications , and/or application development continues to grow. What are the profiles of the organizations at the forefront of the cloud adoption movement, how are these services being leveraged today, and what is their likely level of impact over a five-year horizon?
Mobile apps drive up to 4-times longer engagement than mobile sites, but mobile application development platforms (MADP) have mainly been focused on developers, making personalization and adjustments difficult for marketers. Adobe has changed that. Gartner recently evaluated the top MADP vendors, across a variety of criteria, including Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute, and named Adobe a Leader in their Magic Quadrant for Mobile Application Development Platforms report.
We help marketers and developers work together more efficiently, giving marketers an easy way to make, manage, measure, and monetize their mobile apps, so developers have more time to create rich app features.

Application performance management (APM) focuses on monitoring, maintaining, and optimizing the performance and health of business applications across development, test, datacenter, and network environments. As mission-critical enterprise application environments become more complex because of the increased use of cloud, big data, and mobility, APM is becoming a top priority for IT teams that need to quickly and cost effectively track end-to-end application performance, identify and remediate the root cause of performance problems, and maintain service levels required by end users and business stakeholders. SaaS-delivered APM solutions offer rapid time to value for IT organizations that need to implement APM quickly with minimal disruption to the business.
Employees today want more—and they need more—if they’re going to stay productive from anywhere, which is usually the primary goal of having mobile devices in the first place.
The right apps can enhance employee productivity, reduce expenses, and increase profitability which means that the decisions you make about the apps your organization uses are among the most important decisions your organization makes. No pressure, right? Our Mobile Application Development solution brief covers:

Effective security for cloud-hosted web applications requires full visibility into the environment in which the apps live and the potential exposure to vulnerabilities — and to do so consistently, while proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application development and delivery.
Cloud adoption means that a focus on perimeter security is not sufficient and may even be obstructive, because it can impact application performance and availability.
Similarly, relying on your cloud service provider’s security services is insufficient; any provider will tell you that securing the cloud environment is a shared responsibility between cloud service provider and customer, and the responsibility for specifically securing web applications is the sole responsibility of the customer. And although the industry as a whole has become better at protecting lower-level network and server resources, as attackers look for targets, they are moving up the application stack.
