"DevOps helps drive continuous collaboration with the end-customer, gaining further visibility into online and mobile application usage and its effect on the brick-and-mortar experience. The data your company can derive from this collaboration should be used to continuously validate assumptions made earlier in the development process.
Today’s empowered consumers have high expectations for the companies they do business with. They expect real-time communication, instant information, and the ability to connect in multiple ways. And they want it to be simple. A DevOps approach can help to accomplish this."
"Are dev and test constraints holding back your digital transformation?
Today, just about all businesses are scrambling to add digital components to their products and services with the hopes of capturing—and maintaining—the interest of an increasingly demanding customer base. As you undergo this digital transformation, your IT teams face tremendous pressure to not only develop innovative new experiences, but do so at an accelerated rate—lest competitors beat you to market with the next big thing.
Take a new approach to solving the familiar challenge of doing more with less—and doing it faster than ever before -- remove the constraints holding you back.
At its core, Service Virtualization is all about removing constraints within the SDLC by simulating dependent systems, services and behaviors. In order to understand the true depth and breadth of this concept, however, it helps to see how Service Virtualization can be utilized in different development scenarios.

Business development and marketing programs have a tendency to underwhelm when it comes to actual results. As a result, we’re bombarded with SalesTech and MarTech apps endeavouring to plug the leaks. But these tools rarely tackle the core issues behind your lacklustre results. What’s needed is a fundamental change to your go-to-market approach. This ebook shows you what that change could look like, and describes how to make it happen.
Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity. Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management.

From the impact of disruptive technologies to the imperative of digital transformation, businesses today must find new ways to innovate or risk being left behind. While data flowing rapidly between the Internet of Things and multi-cloud computing environments brings tremendous opportunity, there’s also a great deal of complexity. Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are part of the new wave of solutions capturing the minds of enterprise leaders to respond to these new opportunities and complexities. Digitally literate leaders who are highly cognizant of this wave, are jumping in headfirst and applying AI and ML to solve real business challenges—making enterprise goals of enabling cost savings via smarter operations and decision making come to fruition.

Cloud computing and the "bring your own device" (BYOD) trend will impact the design of future datacenters and their supporting networks. To attain the kind of business agility that companies now demand, network infrastructure needs to provide the flexibility required by cloud application workloads and the changing traffic patterns fostered by BYOD. To make networks more agile, new approaches to network implementation need to be enabled. As these trends continue, application delivery controllers (ADCs) will be critical elements in the new network infrastructure. This Technology Spotlight examines these trends and the role that F5 Networks' integrated scalable platform plays in this strategic market.

An imperative for many enterprises is to undergo a digital transformation to develop new business models, engage better with customers and employees, and remain competitive. Underpinning this transformation is the use of cloud services, which support the rapid innovation and responsiveness required in the digital age.
Unfortunately, current enterprise networks tasked with delivering these innovative services are complex, rigid, costly, and were not built for the speed and flexibility needed in the cloud and digital era. As a result, many organizations are challenging the status quo of traditional networking by taking a software-defined approach.

To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.
