These challenges stem from an increased focus on agility and scale for building modern applications—and traditional application development methodology cannot support this environment.
CA Technologies has expanded full lifecycle API management to include microservices—an integration enabling the best of breeds to work together to provide the platform for modern architectures and a secure environment for agility and scale. CA enables enterprises to use best practices and industry–leading technology to accelerate and make the process of architecture modernization more practical.
APIs are a critical component of digital business—empowering developers to build apps across any channel and enabling partners to incorporate your data or services into their offerings. By making it easier for other organizations to access your services, you create value and growth opportunities.
This rapidly evolving digital world is also redefining the relationship between your business and your customers, who now expect a convenient, interactive experience from their preferred brands. Security is also a concern. Risk is rising, as both the enterprise and its customers exchange a growing amount of sensitive data.
Managing privileged users is a continuous and critical process. First, you must discover where your admin accounts are and eliminate improper privileges and orphan accounts. Next, you must enforce your least-privilege policies for these users and eliminate shared accounts—this is called privileged access management (PAM). Lastly, you must govern privileged access to avoid entitlement creep and to ensure that each user still needs any elevated privileges that they have. If any one of these essential capabilities are weak or missing, your overall risk of breach or insider threat rises significantly.

By all accounts, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a vast, fast-developing opportunity for the enterprise and everyone connected to the enterprise. This IoT market analysis roundup by Postscapes shows the wide range of numbers that represent the IoT market.
The ability to apply software to strategic advantage is the de? ning technology theme of this decade. This is not just an IT issue. It is a business imperative. Every business is in the software business. In some industries, the number of software jobs has doubled over the past ? ve years. JP Morgan Chase has more software developers than Google and more technologists than Microsoft. If you think your company isn’t in the software business, you’re wrong. Airlines, oil companies, telecommunications providers all are using applications to attract customers and gain a competitive advantage.
With the ubiquitous adoption of mobile devices, a whole new platform for application and content delivery is evolving. With their colorful, interactive, intuitive user interfaces, always-on global connectivity, sensing capabilities such as GPS and device orientation and their ability to connect with users through personalized con? guration options, mobile is truly the de? ning platform of the applicat
Each Red Hat® JBoss® BRMS subscription provides a compelling combination of technology, including a business rules management system (BRMS), complex event processing (CEP), system management, and an application platform to run it all on. In comparison, IBM Operational Decision Manager provides BRMS and CEP capabilities.
Check out the differences between Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6 and IBM Operational Decision Manager 8.5.1. in this competitive review.
Perhaps the biggest transformation in enterprise IT since the public cloud emerged is the move toward “mobile-first” application development. As mobility continues to become the new enterprise standard, developers are looking for frameworks that provide the tools they need to create innovative mobile applications without sacrificing their existing investments.
While there are proven, enterprise-ready frameworks and platforms for developing and deploying traditional desktop applications, the mobile application development landscape is still evolving. Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) attempts to fill the gap between traditional application platforms and mobile applications. It is the new middleware, exposing APIs and functions that enable developers to rapidly build new mobile apps and mobile-enable legacy enterprise applications.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provides an abstraction that makes developers more productive by helping them focus on creating applications rather than dealing with infrastructures. This is important as information and its associated processing has become central to more businesses, even those in industries that haven’t been historically thought of as dependent on information technology. And that makes writing custom applications in support of an organization’s business objectives more important than ever.

The traditional technical and cultural challenges that large, hierarchical IT organizations face become more visible during times of IT transformation, such as the adoption of cloud technologies, DevOps practices, and agile methodologies. Persistent organizational culture is organic, and it can be extremely difficult for IT leaders to dictate it effectively from the top down. IT leaders can, however, use technology to encourage proper incentive structures in all levels of the organization. This paper explores the role of OpenShift by Red Hat in creating an atmosphere where creative and passionate developers can succeed frequently and quickly. Their success means decisionmakers can impact organizational culture and more rapidly achieve their goals. In this way, IT leaders can harness the efficiency and persistence of spontaneous organization, despite the inherent limitations of hierarchical systems.
With increasing demands being made on enterprise IT
departments to keep up with the accelerating pace of business,
infrastructure has to enable more dynamic, eficient application
and IT service delivery. Unfortunately, more ofen than not, IT
provisioning can be a bottleneck. Traditional means are ofen
ineficient. When developers plan their projects and estimate the
server, networking, and storage resources they need, they ofen
overestimate and pad their requests to ensure what actually
gets provisioned is adequate. The formal request comes via an IT
ticket, and then the waiting begins. Days, possibly weeks go by
before they get the resources they need, and all the while they’re
unable to iterate on and evolve core business oferings.

Today, 75% of Twitter traffic and 65% of Salesforce.com traffic comes through APIs. But APIs are not just for the social Web. According to ProgrammableWeb.com, the number of open APIs being offered publicly over the Internet now exceeds 2000—up from just 32 in 2005. Opening APIs up to outside developers enables many technology start-ups to become platforms, by fostering developer communities tied to their core data or application resources. This translates into new reach (think Twitter’s rapid growth), revenue (think Salesforce.com’s AppExchange) or end user retention (think Facebook).
OAuth puts the user in control of delegating access to an API. This
allows one service to integrate with another service on behalf of that user. The same social Web providers who popularized the pattern of exposing an API to enable third-party developers to enrich their platforms were the first ones to apply such delegated authorization mechanisms. OAuth was defined in 2006, to standardize mechanisms of this kind.
The application economy has forced businesses to transform. To capture new growth opportunities, enterprises are opening up and sharing select data and applications with developers, partners, mobile devices, the cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT). One of the byproducts of this transformation is the discovery that legacy data has value in the application economy—so much so that new revenue opportunities emerge as this data is used in new ways.
Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed.
Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.
