May 2013- Testing and launching a web application isn't getting any easier. In fact, with the assortment of new browsers, plugins, third party apps and programming languages, this process has never been more complicated. Unfortunately, it's also never been more critical for success.
The mobile and web matrix has grown to such epic dimensions that it is nearly impossible and extremely cost-prohibitive to cover entirely in-house. There are thousands of device, carrier and platform combinations for mobile alone. Add web browsers, anti-virus software, plug-ins and PC specs into the mix and your testing lab would need to be the size of an aircraft hangar. But somewhere in the world there are potential users for every matrix combination.
As you think about your application in the context of new multicore systems you may wonder: What does it mean to transition my application to multicore? What is the essence of a multicore application? What are the tradeoffs involved? What are the changes you need to make?

While IT organisations may be able to monitor and manage their ...
Cloud. Agile. Virtualization. Big Data. Mobile. Emerging from the economic wasteland that characterized the first decade of the 2000s, the IT Industry is charging out of the gate with an explosion of unprecedented innovation.
The rapid adoption of agile development and shifting market conditions has paved the way for a new DevOps paradigm. This new evolution entails a more cross-functional, collaborative, and lifecycle- focused activity than traditionally understood DevOps approaches.
The traditional approach to Application Performance Management (APM) is largely based on siloed tools that manage individual components of an application stack.The challenge is that these tools only give you one perspective of the application. What's been missing is an integrated solution that captures the full, end-to-end application perspective.
Learn how an Analytics-Driven, cloud-based APM solution can significantly improve your APM efforts by simplifying:
•??Problem Detection and Isolation
