Oracle Exadata is powerful, optimised, and cloud-ready. IDC has put the business value of the Oracle Exadata to the test by interviewing eight customers. They reported better business outcomes and efficiencies as a result of improved database performance, scalability, and reliability. The resulting whitepaper also reveals business value highlights, such as 429 percent five-year ROI, US$222,000 additional revenue per 100 users, and 94 percent less unplanned downtime.
IDC recently interviewed organizations using Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) to standardize and improve their application development efforts. These Red Hat customers praised JBoss EAP for providing a cost-effective solution that enables their standardization efforts and delivers real value and savings over legacy, proprietary solutions.
IDC analyzed the business value that six surveyed organizations are realizing through their use of Red Hat integration products based on interviews conducted from April to June 2014. Interviewees were from companies ranging in size from just hundreds of employees to several hundred thousand employees, with a mean employee base of just under 92,000. Companies interviewed included representatives from the telecommunications, IT, shipment and logistics, and document management industries. These organizations are headquartered in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Norway and several of them operate on a global scale. These organizations use JBoss Fuse for integration and development of business-critical internal and customer-facing applications

It’s a digital world and you’re going to have to provide software services, whether to service the internal needs of your business or the demands of your customers. Doing so isn’t optional. The effective use of technology delivers business value.
In today’s application economy, every business is a software business. To respond to change quickly and confidently, deliver value faster than the competition and build high-quality products your customers want, you need to put agile development at the center of your business.
The Travis Perkins Group is a leading supplier of building materials to the UK’s building and construction industry. For more than 200 years, the company has grown to deliver more than 100,000 products through 2,000 branch and store locations nationwide. Changing market demands, shareholder expectations and competition demand that the company continually enhance its performance. Yet, changing more than 200 years of tradition can be complicated. Traditional planning practices had led the company down the road to a bureaucratic project management office (PMO), and with the introduction of agile and CA Technologies, the once controlling environment has shifted into a service-oriented centre.
The application economy has forced businesses to transform. To capture new growth opportunities, enterprises are opening up and sharing select data and applications with developers, partners, mobile devices, the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT). One of the byproducts of this transformation is the discovery that legacy data has value in the application economy—so much so that new revenue opportunities emerge as this data is used in new ways.
The rise of the application programming interface (API)
represents a business opportunity and a technical challenge.
For business leaders, APIs present the opportunity to open new
revenue streams and maximize customer value. But enterprise
architects are the ones charged with creating the APIs that make
backend systems available for reuse in new Web and mobile apps.

The core technology behind Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has evolved for decades. More
recently, DRaaS has linked to the cloud, and finally hit its stride. Today it can provide unprecedented
availability options to companies who don’t have secondary data centers dedicated to business
continuity. Before now, only IT teams with additional IT budget, staff and geographic locations could
effectively hedge against downtime, and disasters.
But today’s DRaaS means that businesses of all sizes have the peace of mind that comes with knowing a
replica of their data and systems is hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to—without bearing
any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is
the responsibility of the DRaaS provider. And the technology ensures that a replica is not only available,
but always current and immediately available. This attractive value proposition led Gartner to predict
that global DRaaS revenue will rea
Continuous testing is the practice of testing across every activity in the SDLC to uncover and fix unexpected behaviors as soon as they are injected. Continuous testing is the embedding of testing as a fundamental and ongoing aspect of every activity through the application lifecycle, from requirements through production, to ensure the business value is being achieved as expected.
As the pace of business continues to quicken, companies are starting to recognize that to stay competitive the process of developing and releasing software needs to change. Release cadence has greatly accelerated. There is no occasion anymore for a six- to 18-month find-and-fix turnaround in which the customer will find the delay acceptable. Things need to move faster, and they need to be ready and perfect faster.

In the last few years, a wave of digital technologies changed the banking landscape - social/ mobile altered the way banks engage with customers, analytics enabled hyper personalized offerings by making sense of large datasets, Cloud technologies shifted the computing paradigm from CapEx to OpEx, enabling delivery of business processes as services from third-party platforms.
Now, a second wave of disruption is set to drive even more profound changes - including robotic process automation (RPA), AI, IOT instrumentation, blockchain distributed ledger and shared infrastructure, and open banking platforms controlled by application programming interfaces (API). As these technologies become commercialized, and demand increases for digitally-enabled services, we will see unprecedented disruption, as non-traditional banks and fintechs rush into all segments of the banking space. This whitepaper examines key considerations for banks as they explore value in the emerging Digital 2.0 world.
Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance.
Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and
dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles
just to gain access to the data they need now. Fortunately, with
the advent of visual analytics and discovery tools (many offered
in the cloud), the journey to data insight is getting simpler and
faster. Rather than trying to divine meaning from a group of
predefined reports or simple static dashboards, visual analytics
helps users gain insights from data more quickly using intuitive data
visualization. Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse
data preparation features for better data access. They support
collaboration, mashups, and storytelling.
TDWI Research sees growing interest in applying more modern,
up-to-date tools for working with data.
To support digital transformation imperatives, organizations are increasingly exploring DevOps style approaches for the continuous delivery of high quality software. Unfortunately, however, many enterprises remain burdened with accumulated technical debt and legacy wasteful practices – waste that can quickly inhibit the flow of value to customers and the business. Lean thinking provides organizations with a framework by which to quickly identify all forms of waste impacting the flow of value, which DevOps practitioners can apply in a software development context to quickly pinpoint and eliminate 8 elements of waste across people, process and technology dimensions.
This paper presents the 8 elements of waste framework, strategies needed to identify and eliminate waste, and the metrics needed to measure effectiveness.
Freeform Dynamics Executive Briefing Guide - Orchestrating the DevOps Tool Chain: An enterprise-level approach to continuous delivery.
Dale Vile says that business stakeholders are increasingly looking for faster and more frequent delivery of high-impact, high-quality output from IT teams. DevOps is an approach designed to enable the rapid and continuous delivery of value to the business to support the needs of the digital world, he adds. Open source software tools can help organizations adopt this DevOps approach but can cause efficiency, complexity and scalability issues, so Dale believes it is helpful to create a consistent orchestration layer using an enterprise class release automation solution.
