The growing emphasis on application agility requires IT focus on excellence in application release operations. Getting application release operations right streamlines the process of getting an application into the hands of users, providing the business with justification for a move to the cloud.
Execution, combined with innovative thinking and bright ideas, is the key differentiator setting leading companies apart from trailing competitors. This emphasis on execution contributes to the fact that Agile development is becoming increasingly hot.
This white paper discusses key concepts supporting the Agile methodology and the foundational role of enterprise management tools in automating the "ideas to action" cycle. Inside, learn how business' ability to adapt is largely dependent
New business opportunities are taking shape as consumers across the globe are adopting new mobile devices, high-speed access and innovative mobile applications. But this proliferation of mobile devices, the development of intelligent and composite applications, the number of multi-device users, and the shift to bring your own device (BYOD) has created many challenges for businesses to effectively capitalize on mobile opportunities.

To protect your consumer and enterprise data in the fast-growing mobile app and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) business environment, your enterprise needs a solid security strategy that addresses, and supplies effective mechanisms for, mobile authentication. Deploying access policies that can be applied to multiple interaction methods provides a more user-friendly and consistent experience, while simplifying their administration and reducing support costs.
Technology evolves, and to remain relevant so must processes. With the rise of cloud computing and the proliferation of virtualization, many question the efficacy of configuration management and the place of the CMDB in the future of IT.

This paper attempts to answer these questions by first validating the
Despite the growing use of traditional tape backup for business continuity, cost-containment, compliance, and other data protection issues, negative perceptions of tape backup persist. This report provides an assessment of tape backup designed to set the record straight about the misperceptions of the medium, demonstrate the value of data deduplication, and prove the merits of its application to data management and recovery in both physical and virtualized IT environments.
