According to Forrester Research, "end-user experience has to be the benchmark for enterprise application performance," which of course makes perfect sense, given that enterprises are spending billions of dollars to enable productivity and automation gains as specifically directed by end-users.
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.
Businesses are now competing in an application economy. More than ever, it is the caliber of applications that shapes an organization’s fortunes. Enterprises will increasingly need value-added services that help speed application innovation. Those cloud service providers (CSPs) that address this demand can move up in the value chain, boost differentiation and establish more strategic customer relationships. This white paper details the opportunities, the requirements and the strategies for delivering winning application-centric cloud services in the application economy
As enterprises build out data center, headquarter, and even branch office networks with ever-increasing Ethernet speeds,
security infrastructure needs to keep up. In the last 3 years, a long list of firewall manufacturers have rolled out products that
support between 40G and 1T of aggregate throughput, and they’re all investigating the need to support new technologies and new physical interfaces at higher performance levels.

With attackers able to marshal ever-greater resources, enterprises are increasingly vulnerable if they go it alone in building DDoS defenses. Today’s attackers are able to monitor a target’s defensive moves and change the attack profile in real time, making DDoS defense all the more challenging.
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.

The evolution of enterprise IT has finally reached the point where mid-size companies can cost effectively exploit the benefits of fully virtualized cloud operations and large and mid-size companies alike can greatly reduce the costs of expanding already virtualized infrastructures.
The linchpin to this transformation is Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) technology. HCI overcomes barriers such as the need to invest in large blocks of disparate compute and storage facilities that have prevented many mid-size enterprises from reaping the benefits of cloud-based operations which is to say the orchestration of virtualized data center resources across multiple workflows.
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.
