In the past few years, the enterprise computing landscape has changed dramatically. Virtualization, outsourcing, SaaS, and cloud computing are creating fundamental changes, and ushering in an era in which enterprises distribute increasingly critical IT assets and applications across multiple service providers.
The enterprise today is changing rapidly. The intersection of cloud, mobility, social networking and the Internet, what analyst firm Gartner calls the, “Nexus of Forces” is making most medium and large enterprises rethink their enterprise mobile strategies. Employees arebringing their own devices, downloading their own applications and creating their own IT.
While the rise of web-enabled applications and the zero latency customers expect from them has driven many enterprises to adopt performance management solutions, they are finding that basic understanding of how their overall user populations are being served is simply not enough. Rather, to improve and ensure the performance and availability of their business-critical web applications, organizations need to be able to see and understand the actual user experience-and provide the appropriate context and visibility necessary to fix problems based on impact-based priority.
Companies that have fully implemented application performance management solutions from CA Technologies report:
. Reductions in application downtime by as much as 70%
. Decreases in mean time to repair by 50% or more
. Decreases in application performance delays by greater than 70%
. An average return on investment of 362% within eight months or less
. A total benefit of ownership of $6,443,039 over three year
The landscape for ISVs is highly competitive and the timing is perfect to offer enterprise customers a mobilized version of the applications they buy and use today. This executive whitepaper summarizes trends and best practices when defining your organization's strategy to build mobile applications for enterprises today.

In this White Paper, IDC discusses the reasons for ongoing data growth within organizations and examines a number of technology approaches that can help IT departments manage the costs associated with provisioning storage more effectively. Understanding what drives the growth of data, the challenges inherent with existing practices for provisioning new storage and the economic impact of the low utilization rates for storage found in most enterprises will help businesses in assessing the right approach to their next storage acquisition, in light of the change in economic dynamics and the looming threat of a storage management meltdown. IT departments have several primary concerns about storage infrastructure:
* Ensuring application and data availability
* Limiting downtime, both scheduled and unscheduled
* Ensuring data security and integrity
* Reducing the initial acquisition and ongoing costs associated with storage
* Managing storage resources and their utilization levels
* Addressing the complexities within the storage environment
All of these issues are of great concern to IT departments and, if not handled correctly, can lead to challenges for the business. Since many IT departments are concerned with these issues, we can begin to understand the many challenges faced when it is time to provision new storage capacity, be it for a new application or to cater for the growth in data from existing applications or users.
Cybersecurity has become a leading topic both within and beyond the corporate boardroom. What enterprises need to stop the escalation of cyberattacks is a network security approach that is designed from the outset to enable the safe use of the applications and technologies required to support a thriving business.

Most enterprises are providing employees and third parties with remote access to their applications in much the same way they did 20 years ago—through VPNs, proxies, and remote desktops—but new and growing realities are forcing enterprises to take a different path.
Read this whitepaper to learn five reasons why enterprises need a new access model.
For more and more organizations, the new reality for development, deployment and delivery of applications and services is hybrid cloud. Few, if any, organizations are going to move all their strategic workloads to the cloud, but virtually every enterprise is embracing cloud for a wide variety of requirements.
In fact, hybrid cloud is the new norm for IT. IDC says more than 80% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud by 20171, and 70% of IT decision-makers say they will always have a mix of traditional IT and cloud architectures.2 With important applications and workloads architected across both on-premises and hybrid, public and private cloud environments, business and IT stakeholders must be able to access data with equal efficiency, reliability and speed—regardless of physical location, infrastructure type or time frame.
