This report, which is the vision report of the mobile app development playbook for application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals, focuses on the changes application developers need to understand if they want to build modern applications that deliver contextual customer experiences.
Successful mobile apps, especially enterprise mobile apps, typically need to interact with a well-architected set of back-end services, but most mobile app developers are more skilled at client-side front-end development. Enter mobile back-end-as-a-service (BaaS), a new set of hosted platforms that addresses the gap between front-end development proficiency and back-end infrastructure requirements. Enterprise-class back-end-as-a-service addresses scalability while providing an integration platform into existing enterprise services. Use this research as your guidebook to navigating the emerging BaaS landscape.

Plus, learn why more customers are selecting Dell Boomi AtomSphere® integration platform as a service (iPaaS) for its ease of use and rapid development characteristics to address your business line integration needs.
ESG is seeing a new focus on platforms designed to support both development and integration. The need to address integration is akin to the elephant in the room—everyone is aware of the situation but nobody has a good way to resolve it. The siloed heterogeneous environment that defines IT today needs a pragmatic approach to bringing together application integration and mobilization. However, the resolution to the integration problem cannot just be addressed from a data or messaging perspective. Context and process is needed to bind these systems together in a meaningful way.
GigaOm is seeing a new breed of services that promise to accelerate the mobilization of existing enterprise applications and business processes. Early mobile-application development solutions (MADP) were resource-intensive, requiring custom client code for each supported platform, as well as an on-premise middleware layer to connect mobile clients to enterprise backend systems. In this new model, code-free, configuration solutions - aimed at business analysts and lines of business- are revolutionizing the landscape, consolidating tools and services to simplify cross-platform enablement, and reducing time to deploy and cost tremendously.
This report describes mobile-application configuration (MAC) tools, articulates their business value and suggests conditions under which they may be a good choice for an organization.

The volume and sophistication of malware is skyrocketing, and traditional anti-virus approaches are struggling to keep up. It’s time to rethink how we protect our endpoints. Instead of trying to build a better anti-virus “mousetrap,” without any shift in the underlying management model for vetting change in endpoint environments, security professionals should investigate more innovative approaches to endpoint security that can automate trusted change policies. This paper discusses an innovative approach to application whitelisting – one that integrates application control, anti-virus, patch management and a trusted change management engine into one unified solution – to improve endpoint security and provide the necessary flexibility to optimize IT operations and user productivity.

Microsoft withdraws support for Windows Server 2003 on July 14, 2015. Here’s how you need to respond to protect your organization’s information assets. Just after enterprises have finished migrating their desktops from Microsoft Windows XP, they now have to turn around and move away from Windows Server 2003. The venerable (and now vulnerable) operating system reaches end of support on July 14, 2015. But many companies will continue to use the software after that deadline, and that has serious security implications.
In the Top 5 Reasons Why Enterprises Are Going Google, Cloud Sherpas explores why leading organizations like these have prepared for the digital workplace of tomorrow by moving their email and collaboration platforms to Google Apps for Work, such as:

Modern application delivery leaders realize that their primary goal is to deliver value to the business and its customers, faster. For many, this is a significant shift from the past, when they primarily focused on cost control and efficiency.
Today, they must connect the work they do and the results they produce to business outcomes. To do this, application development and delivery (AD&D) leaders use a new set of metrics that help them monitor and improve the value they deliver, based on feedback from business partners and customers. In this report, we highlight these new metrics that connect business outcomes to app delivery performance — as well as the practices and tools that modern application delivery teams and their AD&D leaders use to collect and report them.
Companies worldwide are undergoing digital transformations. By modernizing applications, they can deliver better service to customers
and keep pace in a competitive landscape. In many cases, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has helped companies modernize by implementing
containers—and initiating cultural shifts—to streamline development. In this whitepaper, we discuss recommended best practices around
containerization and how AWS can help you get started with containers today.
While digital transformation helps create many business opportunities, it can also expose your organization to new vulnerabilities and regulations which require new security solutions. Qualys Cloud Platform is intentionally built to give businesses comprehensive visibility and security of Amazon Web Services (AWS) workloads and hybrid environments while avoiding the cost and complexities that come with managing multiple security vendors. Qualys' offerings simplify security on AWS by integrating into workflows for streamlined deployment and use, while providing a complete view of the security and compliance posture of all your AWS assets across multiple accounts and regions from a centralized UI.

Artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are rapidly moving beyond the realms of academia and speculative fiction to enter the commercial mainstream, with innovative products that utilize AI transforming how we access and leverage information. AI is also becoming strategically important to national defense and in securing our critical financial, energy, intelligence, and communications infrastructures against state-sponsored cyberattacks. According to an October 2016 report issued by the federal government’s National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology (NSTCC), “AI has important applications in cybersecurity, and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures.” Based on this projection, the NSTCC has issued a National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan to guide federally-funded research and development. The era of AI has most definitely arrived, but many still don’t understand the basics of this im
With decisions riding on the timeliness and quality of analytics, business stakeholders are
less patient with delays in the development of new applications that provide reports, analysis,
and access to diverse data itself. Executives, managers, and frontline personnel fear that
decisions based on old and incomplete data or formulated using slow, outmoded, and limited
reporting functionality will be bad decisions. A deficient information supply chain hinders quick
responses to shifting situations and increases exposure to financial and regulatory risk—putting
a business at a competitive disadvantage. Stakeholders are demanding better access to data,
faster development of business intelligence (BI) and analytics applications, and agile solutions in
sync with requirements.
