Enterprise Application software performs business functions such as accounting, production scheduling, customer information tracking, bank account maintenance, and the like. It is almost always hosted on servers, and is used by multiple employees of the same organization. Major subcategories include ERP, CRM, and SCM.
Join Gigaom Research and our sponsor CliQr for “How to Make Hybrid Cloud Real for the Enterprise” a free analyst webinar on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 10 a.m. PT. In this webinar, an expert panel will examine the key ingredients needed to build, manage, control an enterprise-class hybrid cloud.
The corporate end-user community provides vital cogs in the wheel of a healthy organization. Users include the call centers, the retail assistants, the service desks, the sales offices and the people who deal with order processing. Yet many of these users are often faced with outdated user interfaces (UIs), and struggle to cope with the levels of efficiency and throughput needed. Worse still, these old systems typically only run on a connected terminal - or ‘green screen’ - but more and more these days, users need web and mobile access.
Micro Focus Rumba+ dramatically improves business efficiency by providing a better user experience. It can also now be accessed from a variety of devices. Let’s take a look at five top reasons to move to Rumba+.
Where green screen apps meet modern interfaces, accelerating efficiency and enhancing the user experience. Provide core system access from Windows, iPad or your web browser – without the risks of new code or reprogramming.
This study of 1,300 senior IT decision-makers worldwide proves IT leaders recognize they must change how their organizations work to accelerate time to market, improve software quality, speed application development and meet growing customer demand.
This white paper discusses why application release and deployment automation platforms are becoming increasingly vital for IT operations in global enterprises and explores the specific requirements of such a platform in order for it to prove beneficial, and effective, and offer a substantial return on investment.
This paper is a high-level outline of how application release operations will change in response to the cloud, and it defines the key ingredients needed to help ensure that your enterprise’s release operations for production applications don’t get left behind.
This paper provides a number of capabilities your organization should look for in a Service Virtualization solution, enabling your extended teams to get high quality applications to market faster, with lower cost and risk
Improve revenue, loyalty, and productivity while controlling costs.
It’s a given: Most shoppers are now armed with a mobile device when they enter a retail store. They are highly informed and expect retail employees they interact with to be at least, if not more knowledgeable about a store’s products, promotions, and services.
This white paper outlines the 5 key benefits of a winning mobile app strategy, including new ways retailers can effectively leverage mobile technology as a competitive advantage. With the average shopper looking at their phone more than 150 times a day, learn how leading retailers leverage mobile technology to:
Enhance customer experience
Boost customer loyalty
Achieve operational efficiencies
Download this white paper to find out how retailers with a powerful, effective mobile app program in place can win the battle for shoppers’ eyes and ears — and wallets.
Riverbed announced its collaboration with partner VMware to solve performance monitoring visibility challenges arising out of the ongoing evolution of virtual network technologies and architectures within Virtual Data Center (VDC) environments. Speci?cally, Riverbed and VMware have developed IPFIX ?ow record templates that reveal valuable insights into data and session ?ows occurring within virtual networks that use VXLAN. By adding VXLAN support to its Cascade family of solutions, Riverbed will take a market-leading role in applying application-aware network performance management to Software-Defined Networks (SDNs).
Organizations have gained significant benefit from virtualizing servers and storage environments, and now face the daunting task of deploying new network architectures to keep pace. Software-defined networking holds significant promise to deliver a new network architecture that is abstracted and virtualized; however, organizations would be well served to learn from previous efforts to virtualize other domains in order to avoid making the same mistakes. Riverbed and VMware joined forces to help eliminate those problems and make it easier to deploy VXLAN overlay networks in highly virtualized data centers by integrating application-aware network performance management software and vSphere 5.1.
If you work on a network operations team, you know how increasingly hard it is to understand and ensure application performance for your end users. You need visibility into areas where issues may occur – end-user devices, network and infrastructure – in order to identify and diagnose problems quickly
and minimize downtime.
But it hasn’t been easy to gain this level of visibility across the WAN or hybrid network without deploying additional probes, packet capture devices or remote site technicians. Blind spots are everywhere making it difficult to focus on managing and monitoring the applications that matter the most to your business. And when nearly 50% of a network’s traffic is web-based and it all looks the same to the network, identifying your important applications and staying ahead of their performance problem is more difficult than ever. That could mean inefficient troubleshooting, longer time to resolution, and an overall lack of application intelligence. Who wants that?
Enterprises have been using Cascade® products from Riverbed Technology for many years to discover, monitor and troubleshoot their physical network and application infrastructure. Cascade network performance management (NPM) solution offers a rich set of functionality to understand network and application performance in the context of end-user experience, and to uncover problems in an organization’s physical infrastructure. With enterprises aggressively embracing virtualization, this sea change has brought new visibility gaps in IT infrastructure.
The true litmus test of a valuable network analysis tool is its ability to provide information, quickly and easily. Riverbed Cascade® Pilot does this and so much more!To use a well-worn cliché, Time is Money; Cascade Pilot can prove to be a worthy addition to anyone’s toolkit that is serious about protocol and network analysis when answers are needed quickly.
The branch office has long been a critical dilemma for the IT organization. Branch offices for many organizations are a critical point of productivity and revenue generation, yet the branch has always come with a tremendous amount of operational overhead and risk. Worse yet, challenges are often exacerbated because the branch office too often looks like a carryover of outdated IT practices.
Many organizations have invested in server consolidation, particularly in their data centers. In remote offices, though, servers and storage exist as isolated islands of infrastructure that require management through separate operational processes and procedures. This approach is costly and places data at risk. However, a new branch converged infrastructure architecture allows IT to consolidate in the branch office to minimize the IT footprint needed to run branch applications-all the while centralizing remote servers and data in the data center.
TeamQuest Director of Market Development Dave Wagner and Chris Lynn, Safeway's Capacity Manager and Performance Analyst, cover the application of automatic, exception-oriented analytics to a wide variety of IT and business metrics in order to simultaneously optimize service performance and IT cost. Multiple conceptual approaches are shared, including pros and cons. Most of the presentation includes real examples by which Safeway has integrated performance, capacity, business, and power data into an automated optimization process spanning 1000s of servers and virtual servers and their applications.
