This report reveals how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals select the right partner for their digital experience platform needs.
What digital trends are forcing CDN services to evolve? CDN services are changing, and web and application delivery professionals are navigating the evolving CDN landscape. Read the Forrester Research Report, "CDNs Extend to Web Performance Optimization and End-To-End Cloud Services" to learn what new capabilities are required from the Next Generation CDN.
Digital experiences on mobile connections suffer from performance issues, and impatient users compound the challenges that slower, intermittent mobile connections raise. Firms need to build a new discrete delivery tier to improve users’ perception of mobile performance and drive conversion and engagement. By dynamically adjusting to context, this new delivery tier can adaptively send the right assets, optimize the sequence, and modulate streaming rich media. this report outlines the delivery tier technology options that application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals must embrace.
this is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.
Securing web applications in the AWS cloud environment relies on the cloud service provider and the customer working
together in a shared responsibility model. Effective security for web applications on AWS requires full visibility into the
environment in which the apps live, while also proactively monitoring for attacks without causing delays in application
development and delivery. For some customers this may be a challenge due to limited personnel resources or expertise.
This is where Alert Logic can help. We will automatically show you why, where, and how to respond to vulnerability
findings and provide you with short- and long-term recommendations to stop active attacks.
To help guide the way, following are key considerations for providing sound web application security running on the AWS
Customers have grown accustomed to high speeds and reliable connectivity. One second of network delay when accessing website, mobile app, or application service can increase your bounce rate and even decrease your customer’s trust in your brand.
The typical business pain points per the above scenario are always like:
Latency – While, latency problems caused by geographic distance are impossible to solve on the public Internet;
Availability – Packet loss and complaints from customers can prevent you from increasing your user base;
Cost - The growth of your user base and your business needs both outpace your IT budget.
Security - Connections over the public Internet are vulnerable to DDoS attacks and other threats.

Traditionally, rollout of a new software version has been a critical and painful process. In the past, new versions were implemented along with a maintenance period (i.e., service downtime),
resulting in loss of business for that period. This downtime was generally acceptable when there were only a few releases a year. But now—in a more fast-paced world of hosted software-as-aservice (SaaS) solutions, increased responsiveness and daily or even more frequent releases—down times are no longer acceptable or a?ordable.
Continuous Delivery is a practice used in the software industry to automate and improve the process of software delivery. It is all about adopting practices to release high-quality software fast through automation of the build, test and deployment processes.

Social media marketing ?rm ViralMint rolled out a new feature that proved so popular that the increased customer tra?c swamped the capabilities of the existing load balancer solution and greatly increased application response times. Lacking visibility into the volume or nature of its tra?c, ViralMint had no clues for how to address its issues. A fortuitous conversation led to discovery of the Appcito Cloud Application Front End (CAFE) service, which allowed ViralMint to gain control of its cloud application tra?c, retain its customers’ trust and build on its unexpected success.

Let’s face it, users are impatient. They demand a blazingly fast experience and accept no substitutes. While the effects of poor performance are obvious, it makes one wonder about the relationship between client latency and the “perception of speed”. After all, the user can trigger many state change events (page load, submit a form, interact with a visualization, etc.) and all these events have an associated latency to the client. However, are certain types of latency more noticeable to the user then others?
To optimize technology operating costs and free-up funds to drive innovation, it’s critical for IT organizations to identify waste and eliminate it. A good place to start is often in the application portfolio, where it’s commonplace to have redundant apps which overlap in function and deliver minimal to no business value.
How do you zero in on the resource-drainers and excise them without compromising service delivery or ongoing business processes? How do you undertake the complicated route of rationalizing your application portfolio???

Read this checklist report, with results based on the Eckerson Group’s survey and the Business Application Research Center (BARC), on how companies using the cloud for data warehousing and BI has increased by nearly 50%. BI teams must address multiple issues including data delivery, security, portability and more before moving to the cloud for its infinite scalability and elasticity.
Read this report to understand all 7 seven considerations – what, how and why they impact the decision to move to the cloud.
Cloud technology is quickly becoming the default at companies of all sizes. Nine out of ten companies have already moved at least some of their applications or computing infrastructure to the cloud or plan to do so in the next 12 months. IT spending reflects this trend, with the average investment in cloud rising nearly 36% from two years ago. What’s more, cloud adoption isg rowing across all delivery models, with examples of every kind of application and workload on every kind of platform, according to a recent IDG survey. The survey results represent the practices and opinions of 550 IT decision-makers whose organizations have either already adopted cloud technology or plan to do so within the next three years.
Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications.
Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices
from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.
A five-year-long quest for software-defined application delivery and services came to a fruitful end for this $4 billion enterprise when they chose Avi Networks and Cisco ACI as part of their move to a next generation data center architecture. Avi Networks represented the perfect complement to the network automation benefits delivered by Cisco ACI at the company.
This buyer’s guide for load balancers is based on research, best practices, and conversations with network administrators and IT operations teams at over 110 Global 2000 enterprises. It presents guidelines for choosing application services that mirror the needs of modern data centers and public cloud initiatives.
The guide is organized in sections, starting with a pre-assessment of your current application delivery capabilities. With data gathered from your pre-assessment, you can review the considerations involved in creating a software-defined application services strategy; identify opportunities to improve automation of application services and operations. Finally, use the software-defined application services checklist at the end of the guide to identify key priorities in your choice of application service solutions for your enterprise.
