Despite making significant investments in cloud infrastructure and deploying applications to private clouds, enterprises are not seeing the expected return on their investments. Enterprises are learning that virtualization alone is not sufficient to streamline the application development process that is necessary in order to get applications to market faster.
While virtual machines (VM's) can easily be created on demand, individual applications still require supporting software (languages, frameworks, data and messaging services) to be ...
Today, enterprises rely heavily on applications for nearly all business-critical processes. These applications are delivered via a combination of hardware, software and services, known as the application delivery chain. To make this delivery chain work together effectively, IT must take a new and converged approach to network performance monitoring and application performance management.
This whitepaper discusses:
• Why NPM alone is not enough
• How application-centric APM is incomplete

Configuration management is a critical cornerstone of IT automation, providing tools that allow you to centrally manage the packages, configuration files, process state, firewall rules and other settings that equip servers to do their assigned jobs. Without automated configuration management, you do all these tasks manually, or with handwritten scripts. It's time-consuming, and prone to human error.
Configuration management is also about making any changes to the system in an organized ...
October 2014- Cloud-based communications means various things to various people, but the only definition that matters is the one that suits your needs. This UBM Tech ebook explores cloud-based voice services that keep employees and customers connected - no matter how technology changes.
January 2014- The data center has historically been the focal point of technology evolution. Over the past decade, application architectures, servers, and storage have all changed the way services are provisioned and delivered. The foundation of the data center—the network itself—is now experiencing a similar level of change, evolving from the architectures of the past to a more agile and dynamic solution that meets the requirements of today's applications.
September 2014- Big Data Analytics is a critical tool to gain competitive advantage and to attract and retain happy customers. But simply deploying a software package isn't enough. Infrastructure matters for Big Data Analytics.
September 2014- Almost every business these days requires the power of a data center, but many can't afford the cost or fit the infrastructure within their space constraints. For many years, there have been 'data center in a box' solutions that were too expensive and really never intended for us outside of a data center.
