Forward-looking enterprises know there's more to big data than strong and managing large volumes of information. Big data presents an opportunity to leverage analytics and experiment with all available data to derive value never before possible with traditional business intelligence and data warehouse platforms. Through a modern, big data platform that facilitates self-service and collaborative analytics across all data, organizations become more agile and are able to innovate in new ways.
While the concept of big data is nothing new, the tools and technology and now in place for companies of all types and sizes to take full advantage. Enterprises in industries such as media, entertainment, and research and development have long been dealing with data in large volumes and unstructured formats - data that changes in near real time. However, extracting meaning from this data has been prohibitive, often requiring custom-built, expensive technology. Now, thanks to advancements in storage and analytics, all organizations can leverage big data to gain the insight needed to make their businesses more agile, innovative, and competitive.

Just after the turn of the decade researchers are predicting there will be somewhere north of 24 million subscriptions to next generation 5G networking services. Today most of those services are little more than pilot projects. But thanks to emerging network function virtualization (NFV) software running on Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) platforms enabled by Intel most of those 5G services should be in production before the end of the decade.
Come learn how MEC platforms are about to transform every corner of the networking world to not only drive the creation of a vast array of new IT services, but also make networks more agile and responsive than anyone ever thought possible.
Agile and innovative companies like Netflix, Instagram, Amazon, Airbnb, and Uber have used exponential technologies to completely disrupt their industries. But some of the largest industries in the world have fallen prey to these and other disruptive companies. And most of them didn’t even see it coming. The convergence of exponential technologies, along with bold thinking and the willingness to take risks, is completely altering the business landscape. And that landscape is changing at an accelerating pace.
Disruption is occurring far more quickly than ever before. On average, an S&P 500 company is being replaced every 2 weeks, and over 40% of today’s Fortune 500 companies on the S&P 500 will no longer exist within 10 years. The only options are to disrupt yourself or be disrupted by your competition. Which will you choose? If you choose the former, do you know how to proceed? This guide shares strategies you can employ today to start future-proofing your company.
If the notion of GDPR approach as an agile methodology was the thesis for this paper, the conclusion surely has to be that there is much work still to be done by the enterprise. From an obvious mismatch between the belief of board preparedness to actual preparedness, drilling down into the specific areas of storage, security and development, there’s a feeling that while organisations are now aware of the risks and the necessary philosophical practice that has – or will – become action, there is still an absence of that ‘organic’ inclusion that should make GDPR part of the furniture.
Today’s DevOps and agile–loving enterprises are striving for fast changes and quick deployments. To these companies, the microservices architecture is a boon, but not a silver bullet. Organizations can enable smaller development teams with more autonomy and agility, and as a result, the business will notice IT being more in tune with their changing demands.
You want to deliver new innovations, release apps faster and take advantage of new opportunities, but legacy applications and infrastructure are holding you back. Transition to a modern architecture by decomposing monolithic applications into agile microservices—independently created, managed and scaled. Your business will be able to act faster and developers will love the easy access to APIs that give them the freedom to focus on customer experience.
Vorresti creare innovazione, accelerare la release delle applicazioni e approfittare di nuove opportunità: ma le applicazioni e le infrastrutture legacy ti ostacolano. Passa ad un'architettura moderna scomponendo applicazioni monolitiche in microservizi agile, creati, gestiti e ridimensionati in modo indipendente. Il tuo business potrà muoversi più velocemente e gli sviluppatori apprezzeranno la semplicità di accesso alle API, che consentirà loro di concentrarsi sulla customer experience.
Le odierne aziende orientate alle metodologie DevOps e Agile puntano a cambiamenti rapidi e deployment veloci. Per queste aziende l'architettura dei microservizi è un vantaggio, ma non una soluzione ottimale. Le aziende possono offrire ai team di sviluppo di piccole dimensioni più autonomia e agilità e, di conseguenza, si noterà una maggiore adeguatezza dell'IT alle aspettative mutevoli del business.
Las empresas que actualmente adoran las metodologías ágil y de desarrollo y aplicaciones luchan por lograr cambios rápidos e implementaciones veloces. Para estas compañías, la arquitectura de microservicios supone un regalo, pero no el fin de todas sus preocupaciones. Las organizaciones pueden habilitar a equipos de desarrollo más reducidos, dotados de una agilidad y autonomía mayores. Como resultado, el resto del negocio notará que la TI se ajusta mejor a las cambiantes demandas que se les proponen.
Over the last several years CA Technologies has acquired a number of companies and their respective products, to augment its continuous delivery suite and, especially, its DevTest portfolio. In particular, it has recently acquired Grid-Tools and Rally Software. Bloor Research has been asked to explore how Grid Tools’ products – now known as CA Test Data Manager (formerly Datamaker and CA Datafinder) and CA Agile Requirements Designer (formerly Agile Designer) expand and augment the capabilities provided by CA Service Virtualization (previously iTKO’s LISA) and CA Agile Central (formerly Rally), making the whole greater than the sum of the parts.
CA’s portfolio is designed to drive efficiency from planning through production. A core component of our continuous delivery portfolio is CA Release Automation, a market-leading application release automation solution that delivers full application deployment automation and release coordination across stages, environments and teams. The solution’s analytic capabilities enable DevOps teams to plan, manage, analyze and optimize the continuous delivery pipeline from a single control point. In addition, the portfolio includes CA Agile Central, CA Agile Requirements Designer, CA Service Virtualization and CA Test Data Manager. We continue to invest in and enhance the portfolio, most recently via the acquisition of BlazeMeter, an innovative, SaaS-based performance and load-testing solution.
