The ability to apply software to strategic advantage is the de? ning technology theme of this decade. This is not just an IT issue. It is a business imperative. Every business is in the software business. In some industries, the number of software jobs has doubled over the past ? ve years. JP Morgan Chase has more software developers than Google and more technologists than Microsoft. If you think your company isn’t in the software business, you’re wrong. Airlines, oil companies, telecommunications providers all are using applications to attract customers and gain a competitive advantage.

This paper introduces five architectural principles guiding the development of the next generation data center (NGDC). It describes key market influences leading a fundamental enterprise IT transformation and the technological trends that support it. The five principles are: scale-out, guaranteed performance, automated management, data assurance, and global efficiencies. Cloud infrastructure delivery models such as IaaS, private clouds, and software-defined data centers (SDDC) are foundations for the NGDC. In an era where IT is expected to ensure productiongrade support with a plethoric flow of new applications and data, these models demonstrate how to eliminate bottlenecks, increase self-service, and move the business forward. The NGDC applies a software-defined everything (SDx) discipline in a traditional, hardware-centric business to gain business advantage.

How? With Enterprise Agile Delivery. Enterprise Agile Delivery brings a wealth of benefits to organizations and can be adopted by any Agile hybrid framework: SAFe, LESS, Nexus as well as Agile/lean frameworks like Scrum and Kanban.
Yet to achieve Eneterprise Agile Delivery, enterprises need an easy to use modern ALM tool for quick and successful onboarding. Download this white paper to understand how the right solution will help you:
• Strategiaclly align feature releases and backlogs with your overall business strategy
• Identify and prioritize dev and test activities with visibility into project waves and portfolios
• Make data-based decisons for safe releases with real-time insights and multidimensional views into delivery risks
• Sync business, dev, QA and release teams around shared objectives with automated coordination and communication
When it comes to investing in ERP systems, improving the efficiency and responsiveness of business processes is a top concern for SAP customers. However, among IT professionals, safe delivery is of higher priority than ERP digitalization or starting an IT agility transformation.
With SAP S/4HANA, this no longer needs to be a compromise. When moving to SAP S/4HANA, IT professionals need to implement not only the technical upgrade of SAP S/4HANA but also the required customizations, which necessitate an intensive amount of business collaboration and software delivery. And for that to happen, IT needs an enterprise agile delivery solution to gather and implement the business requirements to SAP S/4HANA as quickly as possible without business disruption.
Read this white paper to discover how you can transition to SAP S/4HANA and achieve true enterprise agile delivery — a new standard to deliver changes to your SAP environment. Topics include:
• Sync business and IT to ensure your ERP solu
Agile software development is no longer a fad, a niche methodology, or just for startups: it’s a requirement for any modern and adaptive development organization. Without the adoption of agile practices, your business may be challenged to keep pace with customer commitments, beat the competition to market, and establish a roadmap for strategic innovation. But a proven framework for agile transformation—including services and tooling can enhance your productivity and speed, and support you as you scale.
While some are still adjusting to the idea, you’re well aware that we’re living in an application economy. For the uninformed, an application economy is where everything is driven by a connected, mobile, application-based world where your customers are far more likely to experience your brand and interact with your enterprise through a software application than a live person. But, beyond the benefits, each day you’re feeling the pressure it exerts on your budget, resources and network.
You’ve seen this wave swell on the horizon, and now it’s arrived: executives are enthusiastic and asking about strategies, and line-of-business leaders are requesting faster dev times and more complex projects. Staking out your place as a leader in this new landscape will require you to develop and deliver high-impact applications faster than ever before.
To compete successfully in today’s economy, companies from all industries require the ability to deliver software faster, with higher quality, and reduced risk and costs. This is only possible with a modern software factory that can deliver quality software continuously. Yet for most enterprises, testing has not kept pace with modern development methodologies. A new approach to software testing is required: Continuous Testing.
In the first session in a series, join product management leadership to gain in-depth insights on how by shifting testing left, and automating all aspects of test case generation and execution, continuous testing, it enables you to deliver quality software faster than ever.

The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging.
Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.

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.
