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.
Automation can be a delicate subject in the managed service provider’s business model. On one hand, automations are a boon to consultant efficiency. Automated tasks can be repeated with minimal extra effort, greatly speeding the time to resolution for customer requests. Read the full white paper

If you’re like most managed service providers, your first love is technology, not the law. As a result, you probably hope to speed through the process of writing your first service-level agreement in as little time as possible.
That could end up being a big mistake. A service-level agreement (SLA) protects you from legal action. More importantly, by ensuring that you and your clients share a common understanding up front regarding what you will and won’t be doing for them, a well-written SLA can actually prevent disputes from arising in the first place. Learn how Continuum can help!

The amount of data being stored is more than doubling every two years. IT departments eager to shrink data center footprints and consolidate servers and storage are preparing for a new generation of data servers. But while virtualized and cloud storage environments are expecting dramatic future growth, we have yet to widespread adoption across the board. Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), a low cost alternative for expanding legacy SANs with minimum investment, lets customers combine Ethernet data and fibre channel data traffic into a single high-speed network. While only 9 percent of users surveyed by have already adopted FCoE , that number is expected to grow to 26 percent in the next two years. And while cloud storage is expected to skyrocket over the next decade, security concerns and application compatibility are still an issue. This Storage CRN eZine, a part of our Thought Leadership Series, will discuss the state of the virtualized storage market, the current challenges facing integrators and vendors, and the steps necessary to take to meet an expected deluge of Big Data that will need to be stored and managed down the road.

When it comes to network connection options, Carrier Ethernet has become one, if not the best option for enterprises, offering operational and business advances that are tipping the scales in favor of the LAN-turned-WAN technology. Carrier Ethernet represents a very viable alternative to MPLS, one that increasingly focuses on scalability, provisioning speed, and simplicity for on-network sites, be they main offices, branch locations, or data centers.
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.

When a managed service provider (MSP) or an IT support company comes to choosing an online backup tool, there are several criteria to consider: price, ease of use, trust in the vendor… and, of course, speed. Speed is arguably the most important issue when it comes to backup, perhaps second only to reliability.
"In today’s Idea Economy, businesses need to turn ideas into services faster. Every new business and established enterprise is
at risk of missing a
market opportunity and being disrupted by a new idea or business model. It has never been easier, or more cru
cial, to turn ideas into new
products, services, or applications
—and quickly drive them to market. But IT needs an infrastructure that enables them to partner with the
business to speed the delivery of services."
"Businesses continue to evolve as digital technologies reshape industries. The workforce is mobile, and speed and ef ciency are imperative, necessitating dynamic, cloud-based infrastructures and connectivity, as well as unhindered, secure application access — from anywhere, on any device, at any time. Leaders must remove hurdles to progress, but new business initiatives and processes increase the attack surface, potentially putting the company at risk.
In an innovation-powered economy, ideas need to travel at the speed of thought. Yet even as our ability to communicate across companies and time zones grows rapidly, people remain frustrated by downtime and unanticipated delays across the increasingly complex grid of cloud-based infrastructure, data networks, storage systems, and servers that power our work.
Defining the Data Lake
“Big data” is an idea as much as a particular methodology or technology, yet it’s an idea that is enabling powerful insights, faster and better decisions, and even business transformations across many industries. In general, big data can be characterized as an approach to extracting insights from very large quantities of structured and unstructured data from varied sources at a speed that is immediate (enough) for the particular analytics use case.
As the application economy drives companies to roll out applications more quickly, companies are seeing testing in a new light. Once considered a speed bump on the DevOps fast track, new tools and testing methodologies are emerging to bring testing up to speed.
In this ebook, we’ll explore some of the challenges on the road to continuous testing, along with new approaches that will help you adopt next-gen testing practices that offer the ability to test early, often and automatically.
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.
Speed is increasingly becoming the most important factor in project execution for a modern business. Of course, it has always been important to deliver projects as quickly as possible—that’s why schedules were developed and managed to. But historically those schedules were usually rather arbitrary. Today, things are very different. Customers expect more functionality more quickly than ever before, and they are unwilling to tolerate delays or missed commitments.
Organizations have recognized the importance of minimizing time to delivery, seeking to leverage opportunities and solve challenges in as little time as possible, but in doing so they have frequently forgotten one critical aspect. They aren’t actively managing those time horizons—they are simply careening headlong toward the end goal. That can introduce significant problems, and that’s what we want to look at in this white paper.
