As applications and services become more central to business strategy, and as distributed methodologies like agile and DevOps change the way teams operate, it is critical for IT leaders to find a way to integrate their backend systems, legacy systems, and teams in an agile, adaptable way. This e-book details an architecture called agile integration, consisting of three technology pillars—distributed integration, containers, and APIs—to deliver flexibility, scalability, and reusability.
Today, ERP is a cornerstone of many organisations’ tech infrastructure. Yet many of the solutions in play are legacy products, decades old and designed for an entirely different business landscape.
With industry leaders expressing concern that out-of-date ERP solutions have now become an impediment to competitive business, IDC set out to uncover what exactly modern companies need from their ERP systems, and why SAP S/4Hana seems so well placed to deliver.

What does a digital transformation look like? It varies from organization to organization, of course, since they have invested in countless systems and applications over the years. Digital transformation consists of building new applications and next-generation architectures on today’s open standards, using on-demand resources. For many organizations, digital transformation also means optimizing existing systems and application resources – integrating, replacing, or abstracting key pieces of their infrastructures into services.
"High-profile cyber attacks seem to occur almost daily in recent years. Clearly security threats are persistent and growing. While many organizations have adopted a defense-in-depth strategy — utilizing anti-virus protection, firewalls, intruder prevention systems, sandboxing, and secure web gateways — most IT departments still fail to explicitly protect the Domain Name System (DNS). This oversight leaves a massive gap in network defenses.
But this infrastructure doesn’t have to be a vulnerability. Solutions that protect recursive DNS (rDNS) can serve as a simple and effective security control point for end users and devices on your network. Read this white paper to learn more about how rDNS is putting your enterprise at risk, why you need a security checkpoint at this infrastructural layer, how rDNS security solutio

In an innovation-powered economy, ideas need to travel at the speed of thought. Yet even as our ability to communicate across companies and time zones grows rapidly, people remain frustrated by downtime and unanticipated delays across the increasingly complex grid of cloud-based infrastructure, data networks, storage systems, and servers that power our work.
What is a Data Lake?
Today’s organizations are tasked with managing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organizations are finding that in order to deliver insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems.
Data Lakes are a new and increasingly popular way to store and analyze data that addresses many of these challenges. A Data Lakes allows an organization to store all of their data, structured and unstructured, in one, centralized repository. Since data can be stored as-is, there is no need to convert it to a predefined schema and you no longer need to know what questions you want to ask of your data beforehand.

Today’s digital businesses are managed using critical business analyses that provide far greater insight into the business and how to maximize results. However, these high-value applications that use the latest software tools demand far more from IT infrastructure, as they utilize an order of magnitude more data and demand more compute resources than legacy applications. Legacy systems are no longer capable of meeting the present and future needs of the organization.

Virtualization is rapidly changing the way business IT operates, from small local businesses to multinational corporations. If you are reading this, chances are good that your company is already taking advantage of virtualization’s benefits.
Virtualization means that a single underlying piece of hardware, such as a server, runs multiple guest operating systems to create virtual machines, or VMs, with each of them being oblivious to the others. An administrative application, such as VMware, manages the sharing process, allocating hardware resources, memory, and CPU time to each VM as needed. And all applications look at this software construct exactly as if it were a real, physical server — even the VM thinks it’s a real server!
Virtualization makes good financial sense. It enables a single server to offer multiple capabilities that otherwise would require separate servers. It includes native high availability features, so you don’t have to use any more complex clustering tools. This ab

Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity.
Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management. As we receive inquiry on this area increasingly, it makes sense to assess this market.
The ‘80s Called… … And they don’t want their enterprise Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) tools back.
If your Project Management Office (PMO) is still relying on the same or similar processes and systems used when neon and mullets were trending, it will never keep pace with today’s market demands or shifts in technology. Six-month deployment schedules and command and control models of yesteryear are actively being replaced with continuous delivery methods and practices like agile and lean—all in the interest of driving greater customer engagement.

Maintaining a competitive edge today means building a Digital Enterprise capable of taking full advantage of social, mobile, web, cloud, “things,” (sensors and devices), and analytics technologies. Among the terms used to describe this business transition is “the API Economy,” an economy in which APIs are no longer just an IT concern, but the underpinnings of new revenue streams and new business models that are disrupting entire industries.

There are so many opportunities for businesses to collect data that getting a clear picture of all of it can be an uphill battle—and leveraging it for insight can be nearly impossible. But whether you are a start-up or a multinational conglomerate, not taking advantage of the available data is a mistake you cannot risk making. According to a 2016 McKinsey & Company study, over the past three years, digital leaders have achieved revenue growth five times greater, an operating margin profit eight times greater, and a return to shareholder value two times higher than laggards.
Companies today need a closed loop system that combines data, insight, and action. Download this paper to learn about the goals of a system of insight (SOI), the common set of technologies that all systems of insight need, and how an SOI can make a difference in your business.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.
