Most organizations prioritize cloud flexibility—and let application teams choose the best environment for each application—over the organizational benefits of common environments, processes, and tools. This leads to 9/10 of organizations supporting multiple clouds, selecting best-of-breed capabilities from each platform.
As applications proliferate, it becomes more challenging to implement consistent cross-cloud security, regulatory compliance, and application performance policies—and organizations rightly have concerns about long-term operability. In fact, as the size of the application portfolio grows, so does the threat landscape with bad actors targeting apparently inconsequential applications that tend to be poorly protected but offer
a pathway into corporate data and other systems.
The key for IT is to strike the right balance between freedom and flexibility for application development teams, while enabling the easy and consistent inheritance of corporate security, compliance, performance, and operability requirements. That means standardizing on core application services across cloud environments—without slowing down CI/CD deployment velocity.View whitepaper
By focusing on frequent code integration, automated testing, and keeping
the mainline code version in a state that is deployable to production at any
time, CI/CD aims to eliminate the risks and friction of traditional waterfall
software development. Add to that the practice of continuous deployment
and you can move to a situation where the latest and greatest software version
is not just always ready to be deployed—it’s deployed on a frequent basis. ...
Just as virtualization revolutionized IT infrastructure, the rise of the cloud has changed the playing field again.
Organizations must now grow and pivot with previously unimagined agility. Enticed by the promises of the cloud, businesses of all sizes are racing toward digital transformation. A recent Prophet report says that market pressures are the leading drivers of digital transformation as most eforts are spurred by growth opportunities (51%) and increased competitive pressure (41%)1 . High-profile data breach scandals and new regulator ...
Upgrade your data management strategy to support today’s demands. The system – or systems – you purchased or inherited years ago are probably not appropriate for the modern data protection needs of your organization.
Use this handy checklist when you’re researching data protection that supports files, applications, databases and hypervisors, plus both public and private clouds.
Keep Your Business Running With Faster and More Efficient Recovery
Your goal is high availability for the applications, databases, virtual machines (VMs), servers, and data that run your business. When access is lost or interrupted, recovery speed is critical, and must be measured in minutes and seconds, not hours or days. And if your backup and recovery strategy includes point solutions with limited coverage, legacy approaches that don’t support today’s modern technologies, or manual processes that are time-consuming and complex, you may no ...
Although governments across Europe may differ in their ideologies, statutes and constitution – there are common threads that unite us all are facing pressures to “do more with less” under a public spotlight. In supporting millions of people, progressive governments in Europe share the need to prioritise and choreograph a growing array of services and to harness digital technologies in their transformation efforts.
Following “Smart Government – the Big Balancing Act”, a study of UK government departments released in early 2018, this research ...
