The application economy poses several challenges to a digital transformation strategy. To truly capitalize on the opportunity, organizations like yours have to think bigger than small-scale augmentations or throwing more resources at the problem. Such “solutions” might work in isolated cases, but they’ll never move the needle enough or drive competitive differentiation. With Continuous Deployment, you can transform and accelerate the SDLC, so complex deployments occur in hours or minutes, not weeks or days.

Growing your enterprise is an ongoing priority. And, as the
application economy continues to expand, it’s likely that
you’re looking at digital business initiatives to fuel a significant
portion of that growth. Among the most promising objectives
of such a strategy are:
• Providing superior digital experiences for consumers
• Expanding markets and revenue streams through
• Connecting employees and partners to enterprise
data anywhere, anytime
• Launching innovative new services for the Internet
of Things (IoT)
Successfully executing a digital strategy requires the ability
to launch new apps and coordinate your digital presence with
partners. Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) create
the connectivity required to share enterprise data and digital
content with those apps and partners over the Internet.
APIs are a critical component of digital business—empowering
developers to build apps across any channel and enabling
partners to incorporate your dat
In the digital economy, application programming interfaces
(APIs) are essential for executing ideas quickly and seizing new
business opportunities. They are the building blocks of digital
transformation, enabling organizations to deliver exceptional
customer experiences, create new revenue streams and connect
employees, partners, apps and devices to data—anytime,
APIs are not necessarily a new technology, but in today’s digital
world, they have risen in prominence and become important
to every facet of the enterprise. This in turn has increased the
demand for effective API management. But what does an effective solution look like?
The API Management Playbook will help you understand:
• Why digital transformation is crucial in the application economy
• How APIs are the building blocks of digital transformation
• Which key stakeholders in your organization are impacted by APIs
• What the API lifecycle is and how it relates to API management
In today’s application economy, interaction between a business and
its customers, partners and employees is increasingly through apps.
And omni-channel access to these applications—from anywhere at
any time—is dependent on APIs. These APIs provide an interface for
developers to code against, and must be robust enough to support
As a result, APIs are perhaps the most critical technology in digital
business design today. APIs sit between your application clients
—apps, websites and devices—and application backends. By
leveraging APIs, you can securely stretch the boundaries of your
enterprise by tapping into a broad array of digital businesses, digital
customers and digital devices.
But just as important as the API, is the application backend itself.
Behind the API, the data access layer and application logic layer are
doing the heavy lifting—implementing business rules, maintaining
data consistency and managing interactions with various data
sources. These three com

In our developing digital economy, IT is a strategic asset. By effectively leveraging data, businesses become more operationally efficient, create more differentiated customer experiences, and develop new products and business models. However, unlocking those benefits requires a higher degree of execution by IT. Simply keeping pace with demand is no longer good enough; IT needs to help drive the business’s digital pursuits. The increased pressure on IT has amplified complexity, as well—66% of IT decision makers surveyed by ESG say IT is more complex than it was just two years ago.1
Demands being placed on IT are scaling relentlessly, and the tools IT teams use are in a constant state of evolution. Integrating and optimizing those new infrastructure technologies while managing existing investments is a perpetual burden. IT organizations, therefore, have two choices: either increase their personnel and budgets enough to survive the evolution with just traditional tools, or redirect those

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.
With high user expectations shifting faster than ever, the software landscape is evolving at a feverish pace to deliver higher–quality software—and testing must be able to keep up.
CA has worked with Paul Gerrard, Principal, Gerrard Consulting, to identify some of the new challenges that the digital economy presents for testing, and the trends that have emerged to meet them. We cover some of these topics in this e–book.
The pace of change is accelerating. Customer expectations, competitive shifts and regulatory changes are disrupting global markets—and the way you do business. In this fast-paced application economy, software is at the heart of every business, driving every industry.
Gone are the days when you could build an application or product and then go years without changing much. To survive the disruptive outside forces lurking around practically every corner, you have to stay on top of your game and a step ahead of competitors. Your peers at other companies are likely facing challenges similar to yours, yet you see them leading the industry by consistently sensing market opportunities and delivering innovative new products. How do they do it? Find out by downloading this whitepaper.
Das Tempo der Veränderungen wird schneller. Kundenerwartungen, Veränderungen bei Mitbewerbern und Änderungen an Vorschriften stellen globale Märkte auf den Kopf – und Ihre Geschäftstätigkeit auch. In dieser schnellen, neuen Application Economy stehen Softwarelösungen im Mittelpunkt aller Unternehmen und Branchen.
Die Zeiten sind vorbei, in denen Sie eine Anwendung oder ein Produkt entwerfen und es dann jahrelang so gut wie unverändert anbieten konnten. Um die umwälzenden externen Faktoren zu überleben, die praktisch hinter jeder Ecke lauern, müssen Sie die Nase vorn behalten und den Mitbewerbern einen Schritt voraus sein. Personen in Ihrer Position in anderen Unternehmen stehen wahrscheinlich vor ähnlichen Herausforderungen wie Sie, sind jedoch marktführend, indem sie fortlaufend Marktchancen erkennen und innovative neue Produkte bereitstellen.
