The promise of cloud computing is to simplify the delivery and the consumption of IT resources for both users and ISVs. The acceleration of cloud computing, particularly in the area of mobile applications, has created an enormous growth opportunity for ISVs. This also has driven a renaissance in the way ISVs develop, deliver and support applications. While application development has always been challenging, developing for cloud brings with it even greater demands in terms of speed of application delivery and user expectations. At the same time, it offers ISVs the opportunity to simplify and standardize in a cloud-based development model.

In the emerging digital enterprise, there’s a good chance some application development will be taking place outside the information technology department. It’s not that the role of IT is in any way being diminished – in fact, IT managers are getting busier than ever, overseeing the technology strategies of their enterprises. Rather, the pieces are in place for business users to build and configure the essential business applications they need, on a self-service basis, with minimal or no involvement of their IT departments.
As the world moves deeper into an era of ongoing disruption from digital players – be they startups, or teams within established enterprises – technology has become an essential part of every job, from the boardroom to the boiler room. Accordingly, the discipline of IT is no longer confined to the data center or development shop. Many business managers and professionals are building, launching or downloading their own applications to achieve productivity and respond

Digital transformation projects present many technological and organizational challenges. A key
challenge is developing modern, cloud-native applications that connect customers directly using
automated business processes and decisions. Creating these applications requires a radical change
in how software is built—moving away from traditional, IT-led software development to a process
that lets both developers and business experts contribute directly to application logic.
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.
With the application economy in full swing, more organizations are turning to Continuous Testing and DevOps development practices in order to quickly roll out applications that reflect the ever-changing needs of tech-savvy, experience-driven consumers.
Rigorous data they need, in the right formats. This forces teams to postpone their testing until the next sprint. As a result, organizations like yours are increasingly looking for ways to overcome the challenges of poor quality data and slow, manual data provisioning. They are also concerned about compliance and data privacy when using sensitive information for testing. CA Test Data Manager can help you mitigate all these concerns, so you’re positioned to achieve real cost savings.
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.
In too many organizations today, innovation isn’t happening fast enough. Within these businesses, skills are siloed and resources are misaligned. As businesses seek to speed innovation and meet their growth and revenue targets, they have to get maximum utility out of all their investments—including in the areas of IT infrastructure, product development and human resources.
This buyer’s guide is intended to help those decision makers tasked with making this critical buying decision—focusing on the characteristics that help enterprises address both their immediate and long term needs. This guide shows how leveraging a PPM platform that delivers both top-down, strategic portfolio management, as well as bottom-up project management capabilities, helps organizations maximize their ROI over the long term.
Maintaining a competitive edge today means building a Digital Enterprise capable of taking full advantage of social, mobile, web, cloud, “things,” (sensors and devices), and analytics technologies. Among the terms used to describe this business transition is “the API Economy,” an economy in which APIs are no longer just an IT concern, but the underpinnings of new revenue streams and new business models that are disrupting entire industries.

Driven by the acute imperative of digital transformation, enterprises and other organizations are adopting multicloud strategies as springboards to increase business agility and competitive differentiation. At the same time, monolithic application development is being superseded by microservices, which entail the decomposition of previously complex applications into independent, modular processes that communicate with each other using language-agnostic APIs.

Ease, effectiveness and emotion drive great customer service, but top-line growth requires that application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals keep an eye on trends.
Forrester Research has identified 10 customer service trends in 2018 for AD&D and others who support customer service. Before you strategize on improving your quality of service, read this Forrester Report by Vice President and Principal Analyst Kate Leggett.
You’ll learn which investments are critical and the advantages of:
• Focusing on context and inquiry type to deliver the best customer experience
• Using automation and AI to uncover new revenue streams and transform operations
• Exploring new labor models to maximize human connections in a digital world
Composite applications can provide multiple benefits, such as business agility, better utilization of business software assets through code reuse, development efficiencies, and cost optimization. Once companies are skilled at deploying them, many find that they roll out new applications and integrations faster, while maximizing the value of "tried and true" software components.
Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
