Just a few years ago, many organizations turned to private cloud environments to help increase flexibility and control costs—largely because of the immaturity and lack of control within the public cloud environments then available. Today, however, the decision to “go cloud” is less of a binary, and more of a spectrum of choices, spanning different deployment models (public, private and hybrid) and service types, including IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.

In collaboration with Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), AppDynamics has conducted a survey of application management professionals and managers to determine exactly what IT organizations want and need from APM providers.
Here are some key findings from the research:
• Only 30% of companies currently have application-specific solutions to monitor apps
• 50% or fewer of the tools companies have purchased are actively being used to monitor apps
• 27% of application-related problems are detected by monitoring tools
• A “unified monitoring platform” is the top choice in a feature of an APM solution

Businesses running older versions of Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop, or running Citrix on top of Windows Server 2003, have hard choices. You can’t ignore the problem, which will likely require large-scale upgrades of the existing application delivery farms, which in turn often require replacing the entire software stack—and perhaps the hardware, too. Once the need for such a major upgrade has been determined, we recommend a fresher approach than making the default choice to upgrade to the next version of Citrix XenApp. Download this whitepaper to learn how you can take advantage of the opportunity to sail the Safe Passage to VMware Horizon, which offers a clean start, reduces the number of vendors involved with application delivery and improves employee productivity.
More organizations are choosing Horizon 7 over Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp because Horizon offers a more comprehensive and feature-rich solution. The three key architectural advantages that Horizon has over Citrix are a trusted platform, flexible delivery options, and workspace environment management. Download this whitepaper to learn how VMware Horizon® 7 helps IT manage, control, and protect all Windows resources at the speed required and with the efficiency that business demands, delivering desktops and applications through a single platform to end users anytime, anywhere, on any device.
In businesses and organizations across the world, rooms once humming with wires, black boxes and blinking lights now sit empty. In a lonely phone closet, there’s only dust, a single lonely terminal, or perhaps a foosball table where IT pros can let off steam.
The cloud – and more specifically, cloud communications – is the source of the transformation, which has fundamentally changed the IT landscape. Some IT pros have embraced it. Some are working on migrating to the cloud over time. And others, through choice or necessity, are sticking with a premises-based approach.
Read on to find out why some IT pros are shopping for game tables to go in empty server rooms while others are untangling wires and watching blinking lights—and which cases make the most sense for each approach.
Within 6 months of starting to use Okta, customers on average will connect more than 10 applications for single sign-on. Once single-sign-on is tackled, cloud-first IT organizations can start to tackle the next set of problems. These next challenges are all about how you manage identities across all connected systems, how to determine who has access to what, and how you maintain control over user access. Some of the largest organizations in the world spend millions of dollars building out complex workflow systems to manage these processes. Even then, they depend heavily on manual work to actually get the job done. With Okta, there is a better way to do this, and it’s accessible to organizations of all sizes.
