Software drives competitive advantage more than ever at an increasing velocity for releases along with higher, overwhelming levels of deployment complexity.
Dramatic growth in mobile applications, analytics, systems of engagement, and cloud demands that organizations respond adaptively, even as resource constraints make it challenging to nearly impossible to do so. As a result of these combined factors, IDC sees increased interest in, demand for, and adoption of agile approaches to development and also for business initiatives driving adoption of agile approaches to overall project, program, and portfolio management. As we receive inquiry on this area increasingly, it makes sense to assess this market.

Running an IT backend that is secure, scalable and well-managed is resource draining for any enterprise. Challenger, Singapore’s largest IT retailer, took a more pragmatic route by transforming on a Online to Offline (O2O) model. For the journey, it partnered with Rackspace to accelerate the value of its AWS cloud migration, by tapping its proven AWS expertise, strong managed services portfolio, and familiarity with local regulatory compliance and cloud security demands
This report provides an overview of the Oracle Cloud at Customer portfolio (this includes Oracle Exadata Cloud at Customer, Oracle Big Data Cloud at Customer, Oracle SaaS at Customer and Oracle Cloud at Customer) and analyzes its capabilities to satisfy the need of enterprises for a next-generation computing platform. A next-generation computing platform allows enterprises to deploy workloads across the premises and the public cloud.
For enterprises running their next-generation applications on a next-generation computing platform, Oracle Cloud at Customer does very well because of Oracle’s vision of the “chip-to-click” integrated technology stack (i.e., from the CPU silicon, across all OSI layers and all the way to the end-user mouse click). With Oracle using the same technology stack and machines both in its cloud and on premises, it has the highest degree of identicality across these offerings from all vendors that are part of Constellation Research’s Market Overview on next-genera
With digital transformation reshaping the modern enterprise, applications represent a new class of assets and an important source of differentiation. The ever-more-competitive digital economy requires that your applications be delivered with unprecedented speed, scale, and agility, which is why more and more organizations are turning to the cloud.
This explosive growth of apps hosted in the cloud creates a world of opportunities—and a whole new set of challenges for organizations that must now deploy and manage a vast portfolio of applications in multi-cloud environments. Automation and orchestration systems can help streamline and standardize IT processes across traditional data centers, private clouds, and public clouds. But with rapid innovation come concerns about security and delivering a consistent experience across environments.

A truly hybrid IT infrastructure should support any and all workload types, letting applications run optimally on their own natural footprints or environments, whether bare-metal servers, scale-up virtualization, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), from either private or public clouds. It should not be a singular environment that (unsuccessfully) attempts to handle all types of workloads, nor should it consist of separate IT infrastructures that cannot communicate with each other. The Red Hat® portfolio provides the open hybrid IT fabric required to seamlessly enable both traditional (stateful) and new, agile, cloud-native (stateless) workloads.
Digital transformation initiatives and the need for innovation are causing enterprises to rethink their IT landscapes including business-to-business (B2B) integration. Modern B2B integration is critical for enabling enterprises to achieve goals like increasing revenue, speeding up time to market, and improving efficiencies because these outcomes are dependent on having a successful business network. B2B practitioners have two goals — enable critical business initiatives and control costs — and cloud-based B2B services have been successful in helping enterprises achieve both goals.
IDC interviewed eight IBM clients to understand how their use of IBM Sterling B2B Integration Services, part of the IBM B2B Cloud Services portfolio, has impacted their operations and businesses.

In this ebook, we dive into how identity management streamlines access to the cloud while protecting corporate data.
The location of many resources is changing to the cloud, yet companies still need central management of those resources. Trying to maintain security and order in a chaotic free-for-all use of cloud apps and bring-your-own-device culture is like a black hole sucking in IT’s time—time they could be dedicating to other projects.
OneLogin’s cloud identity management platform spans the entire application portfolio with secure single sign-on (SSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), user provisioning, integration with common directory infrastructures such as Active Directory (AD), Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), and various cloud directories, and more.
We recommend the following:
• IT departments leverage OneLogin for all their identity management needs
• IT departments educate users about security and safe sharing
• App owners enable Security Assertion M

Red Hat is a modern-day success story; it’s open-source software (OSS) model has now penetrated nearly every layer of IT systems that were once proprietary — compute, storage, cloud, middleware and others. The company is recognized as a strategic, multi-product portfolio software solutions vendor among enterprise users.
However, risk-averse enterprise IT professionals are understandably cautious about simply moving their entire IT portfolio of resources and services into a 100-percent cloud architecture. As with most technology-adoption curves, enterprises have not embraced an “all-or-nothing” paradigm, instead preferring a pragmatic, “evolution, not revolution” approach of cautious incrementalism. This helps them account for their existing investments, custom work, business requirements, and risk posture. Not everything will move to the cloud – at least not in the foreseeable future. That’s why so many IT professionals advocate a so-called “hybrid” approach. But what do we mean by “hybrid” and how do we optimally balance the various components of a hybrid cloud architecture?

AWS is the most widely deployed public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution in the world and is a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for IaaS (see "Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service"). AWS offers a large number of built-in security capabilities (see Note 1), and questions on the proper practices for securing workloads in AWS are increasing.1
AWS is a not a "consumer grade" IaaS cloud. It is a market leader, with a portfolio of security capabilities and security ecosystem partners unmatched by other IaaS providers. However, simply moving existing workloads to AWS without rethinking security tools, processes and system management will result in workloads that are less secure than they were when located within enterprise data centers. Conversely, a properly managed and secured workload in AWS will be at least as — and, in most cases, more — secure than in an enterprise data center.
