The market for cloud-based IT infrastructure services delivered in a software-as-a-service model continues to grow. IDC research indicates this model of IT delivery is disrupting traditional licensed software markets and changing how archiving, backup, recovery, and security technologies are procured.
Web Services are emerging as the preeminent method for program-to-program communication across corporate networks as well as the Internet. Securing web Services has been a challenge until recently, as typical Web authentication and authorization techniques employed browser-to-server architectures (not program-to-program). This resulted in user identity ending at the Web Application Server, forcing the Web Services Provider to trust blindly that the Web Services Requester had established identity and trust with the end user.
With the success of single sign-on (SSO) inside the enterprise, users are calling for interoperability outside of the enterprise’s security domain to outsourced services, including business process outsourcing (BPO) and software as a service (SaaS) providers, and trading partners, as well as within the enterprise to affiliates and subsidiaries.

Successful mobile apps, especially enterprise mobile apps, typically need to interact with a well-architected set of back-end services, but most mobile app developers are more skilled at client-side front-end development. Enter mobile back-end-as-a-service (BaaS), a new set of hosted platforms that addresses the gap between front-end development proficiency and back-end infrastructure requirements. Enterprise-class back-end-as-a-service addresses scalability while providing an integration platform into existing enterprise services. Use this research as your guidebook to navigating the emerging BaaS landscape.
In a relatively short time, cloud computing, specifically Infrastructure-as a-Service, has shifted from a new but unproven approach to an accepted, even inevitable, model. Driven by flexibility and efficiency, the question facing most organizations is not whether the cloud is part of their infrastructure plans, but which applications and workloads to move to the cloud and when. But even as the benefits of cloud and hosted models have become apparent, concerns persist about security, and an assumption lingers that the cloud is inherently less secure than an enterprise data center environment.

Containers have become the new infrastructure
standard for development teams. While the “DIY
container approach” (un-orchestrated containers)
still has its use cases (e.g. low latency, longer
compute jobs, predictable traffic), production-grade
deployments require orchestration. DevOps teams
are increasingly leveraging the benefits of Kubernetes
and accelerating its adoption, taking it from a 27%
adoption rate in 2018 to a 48% adoption rate in 2019
according to the RightScale “2019 State of the Cloud
Report,” from Flexera. The same report also positions
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS)
as one of the fastest-growing managed Kubernetes
offerings available, with a 44% adoption rate.
Previously, containers were a technology deployed
by individual teams – and were typically used for
“application testing” in the enterprise world. Today,
many organizations are now not only seeing the
benefits of operationalizing containers to deploy
production applications, but also re-positioni
To achieve the full benefits from private cloud deployments for rapid infrastructure provisioning, I&O leaders should look beyond infrastructure to provide enhanced services that support development requirements.

Infrastructure simplification is a concept popping up very often lately with IT managers across all kinds of organizations. But it’s nothing new for small, and budget constrained IT shops that have
always looked at ways of keeping their infrastructure simple, very manageable and highly serviceable. Unalaska City School District (UCSD) is no exception; in fact, its needs are even more constrained due to its particular position on the map.
Located on the Aleutian Chain, approximately 800 air miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, Unalaska is home to 4,000 permanent residents and boasts the U.S’s most productive commercial fishing port of Dutch Harbor, which is also well-known as the home of successful TV show “The Deadliest Catch”.
Accessible only by airplane or boat, there are no roads to Unalaska. The deep water and ice-free International Port of Dutch Harbor serves cargo ships and large container vessels throughout the year, making this port one of the busiest transportation hubs in t
