The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the
past 5 years—but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the
same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies,
system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still
rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era.
Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized
as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under
the microscope as well?
Are metrics like number of automated tests, test case coverage, and pass/fail
rate important in the context of DevOps, where the goal is immediate insight
into whether a given release candidate has an acceptable level of risk? What
other metrics can help us ensure that the steady stream of updates don’t undermine
the very user experience that we’re working so hard to enhance?
To provide the DevOps community an objective perspective
on what quality
Digital experiences on mobile connections suffer from performance issues, and impatient users compound the challenges that slower, intermittent mobile connections raise. Firms need to build a new discrete delivery tier to improve users’ perception of mobile performance and drive conversion and engagement. By dynamically adjusting to context, this new delivery tier can adaptively send the right assets, optimize the sequence, and modulate streaming rich media. this report outlines the delivery tier technology options that application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals must embrace.

What are the foundational roles within a modern dataops team and how to align skill set
Today, applications facilitate commerce on a global scale. They play a key role in delivering products and services to customers, a role that directly affects the success of the business. Companies that rapidly deploy, update, and manage business applications have a competitive advantage.
To maintain this fast pace, many organizations have adopted a hybrid cloud—a combination of private and public clouds—to become more agile.
But true agility isn’t easy
Today’s globally distributed and diverse workforce needs flexible yet straightforward access to the corporate network, regardless of user location, device type, employee affiliation, and application location (on-premises, SaaS, IaaS). Expedience and fluidity can’t come at the cost of security, especially given the realities of modern cybercrime. Learn more about the five demands you should make of an updated comprehensive application access solution.
"Today’s data centers are being asked to do more at less expense and with little or no disruption to company operations. They’re also expected to run 24x7, handle numerous new application deployments and manage explosive data growth. Data storage limitations can make it difficult to meet these stringent demands.
Faced with these challenges, CIOs are discovering that the “rip and replace” disruptive migration method of improving storage capacity and IO performance no longer works. Access this white paper to discover a new version of NetApps storage operating environment. Find out how this software update eliminates many of the problems associated with typical monolithic or legacy storage systems."

No matter the industry, every company is now in the business of developing applications and online experiences. To keep up with the competition, you need to stand out in all of the digital noise. For your app to succeed, it is critical that it delight your customers with a flawless experience, regardless of what device they use to access it. New features and updates need to be delivered quickly and frequently, but without compromising quality.
While development practices have dramatically changed to meet the high speed demands of today’s digital economy, testing has often been left behind as an afterthought. However, this attitude is changing as organizations discover the power of positive experience, and the business impacts of negative reviews. Businesses of all sizes are moving towards Continuous Testing practices and as a result are seeing accelerated software delivery cycles, high quality digital experiences across all platforms, and most importantly happy and loyal customers.
Adopting new mobile applications usually brings with it legitmate concerns related to security and risk mitigation. This technical white paper explains how IBM MobileFirst Platform can address some of the unique security challenges of mobile applications by helping you to:

Most cloud infrastructure vendors offer companies a stable and secure environment on which to build and run their applications without having to manage a data center, invest in hardware, or install and update software. While most cloud vendors provide the same types of services, they differ in how they charge for and deliver those services.
Application performance monitoring (APM) companies are quickly becoming some of the most important players in the IT landscape as enterprises strive to deliver best-in-class customer experiences.

Performance for end users is the metric by which most businesses judge their web applications’ performance: is the responsiveness of the application an asset or a liability to the business? Studies show that users are growing more and more demanding, while average page-loads are getting bigger and bigger. Combine that with frequent releases and cross-business updates, and pretty soon the optimization job is never quite done.
For many years, the Magento ecommerce platform has been the retail inudtry go-to running an enterprise online store. However, when most businesses first made Magento their solution of choice, it was the only viable option out there.

The days of monolithic application development are over.
And while “digital transformation” may sound like a fancy
buzzword that ranks alongside blockchain, agile, and cloud, it’s
not all hype. With transformation comes unprecedented levels
of speed, consistency, and efficiency that are fundamentally
changing the way developers do their jobs.
Yes, that includes you.
Much of the burden and pressure to deliver on the promises made
by the business falls on the shoulders of IT developers. In a world
where users demand new applications, features, and updates
across all their devices in real time, container technology is your
secret weapon. Containers let you work smarter by creating
consistent development environments to rapidly develop and
deliver cloud-native applications that can run anywhere. With
containers, you can also deliver microservices that eliminate
lengthy regression testing cycles, deploy without disruption,
and provide a mechanism for patching or rolling back code on
Managing applications is a big busi¬ness challenge today. When applications must be updated, installed or migrated, companies must ensure disruptions are minimized to keep users productive throughout the pro-cess. Dell provides ser¬vices that can help every step of the way.
VMware® Horizon Mirage™ is a layered image management solution that separates a PC into logical layers that either IT or the user own and manage. IT-owned layers are typically OS and corporate applications while user-owned layers consist of their own files and applications. The Horizon Mirage solution enables:
• Updates to individual IT-managed layers, such as core operating system files and
common business applications, without disrupting other layers, all while maintaining
user data and installed applications.
• Simpler backup by taking snapshots of layered images, enabling desktop disaster
recovery and helping to ensure continued end-user productivity.
In today’s digital economy, the ability to bring new software applications and updates to market quickly is a key to competitive advantage. For companies in diverse industries, the goal is the same: Get high-quality software into production as fast as possible.
In this quest to accelerate release cycles, organizations must get beyond historical barriers that impede the rapid delivery of the software that keeps an enterprise competitive. In too many cases, processes tend to be inefficient, slow, and prone to failed releases. Much of the blame for the problem can be laid at the feet of organizational structures that mandate conflicting goals for the two key departments at either end of the application development chain: development/testing (dev/test) and operations.
Where dev/test teams want to push their applications and updates into production quickly, operations teams want to go more slowly in order to maintain control and keep applications and systems available.
Improving access to core applications and data is just one of many mandates facing IT, along with improving collaboration, reducing administration costs and improving performance. Fortunately, shops running System z have an advantage. You can integrate and enhance your System z assets faster when you use the version 6.1 update to IBM WebSphere Portal on z/OS. Use it to quickly deploy business applications across the enterprise, reduce costs and increase flexibility with workloads centralized on System z.
A wireless network is a platform for enabling enterprise-wide access to an organization's applications and data. Wireless infrastructure allows users to take the office with them wherever they go. The wireless network provides employees and guest workers with untethered access to voice, video, data and applications regardless of their physical location. With the influx of mobile devices and increase in Wi-Fi connections, organizations are already starting to see a paradigm shift to "wireless by default" and "wired by exception."
