Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is defined as the uses of software and computer systems architectural principles to integrate a set of enterprise computer applications. EAI intends to transcend the simple goal of linking applications, and attempts to enable new and innovative ways of leveraging organizational knowledge to create further competitive advantages for the enterprise.
A medida que las capas de procesos, la toma de decisiones y los sistemas de TI crecen y generan una sobrecarga de complejidad, la simplificación del negocio es cada vez más un foco estratégico. Para entender el desafío, SAP y Knowledge@Wharton encuestaron a 692 líderes y miembros de equipos de todo el mundo acerca de sus puntos de vista sobre la simplificación del negocio hoy, y en el futuro.
Continuous Engineering For Dummies, IBM Limited Edition, explains why sequential product development is passé and how continuous engineering can help you manage complexity, improve efficiencies, reuse engineering assets, and incorporate product performance data in order to improve your offerings.
Smart products are everywhere. They track your packages, control traffic lights, fly aircraft, and guide you to your destination. They’re at the heart of the systems and services you use every day — from smartphones to smart cars, to medical systems, and to aerospace and defense systems.
In designing a product, change is constant. New requirements will be added. Old needs will be removed. Some needs will change. So how do you deal with these development issues—especially when you’re developing for a rapidly changing platform like the Internet of Things?
One of the most common questions being asked by many customers recently is “How does VMware AirWatch support Office 365?” Many ask if AirWatch can control access to Office 365 (O365) not only on their corporate desktop systems, but most importantly on their mobile devices.
Fortunately, AirWatch provides tremendous support to help organizations leverage O365 on their mobile devices and our recent integration with VMware® Identity Manager provides an industry-first adaptive access control framework to ensure that all work applications, including O365, can only be accessed on managed and compliant devices.
In this paper, we discuss why a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach to workforce mobility can be a compromise-free approach, and then how the combined capabilities of Samsung KNOX and Enterprise Mobility Management from AirWatch by VMware turn this compromise-free approach into reality.
When selecting an enterprise mobility platform, organizations should not only look at current mobile needs but also consider an extended roadmap that includes any future plans to develop apps, extend more business processes to mobile or expand collaboration with the extended enterprise. To prepare for a mobile-centric world, organizations today need a platform that is flexible, that scales, and that they can grow into as opposed to growing out of.
A Google Trends search for “BYOD” reveals it is a fairly new term, appearing in news publications for the first time in late 2011. BYOD is one part of a much larger, deeper-rooted trend: The consumerization of IT, which can be traced back to the early 2000s. Around that time, most everyone had a personal computer, which enabled them to work from home after hours – and to realize the benefits of using the devices that they had carefully chosen and were comfortable using, rather than the corporate devices their IT departments had issued them.
BYOD and the consumerization of IT continued to grow as devices became cheaper and more connected. Where IT leaders were once solely concerned with reining in all the unapproved devices accessing the corporate network, a recent Intel and readwrite report that shows 49 percent of U.S. IT managers “strongly agree that BYOD improves worker productivity.” The next era of BYOD has arrived, and IT departments are thinking about it as a strategic value-ad
This document includes general information about the Pure Storage architecture as it compares to SolidFire. Not intended to be exhaustive, it covers architectural elements where the solutions differ and impact overall suitability for the needs of the Next Generation Data Center (NGDC).
When comparing the architecture for Ceph and SolidFire, it is clear
that both are scale-out storage systems designed to use commodity
hardware, and the strengths of each make them complementary
solutions for datacenter design.

Quality of service (QoS) is a critical enabling technology for enterprises and service providers wanting to deliver consistent primary storage performance to business-critical applications in a multi-tenant or enterprise infrastructure. The type of applications that require primary storage services typically demand greater levels of performance than what is readily available from traditional storage infrastructures today. However, simply providing raw performance is often not the only objective in these use cases. For a broad range of business-critical applications, consistent and predictable performance are the more important metrics. Unfortunately, neither is easily achievable within traditional storage arrays.
This whitepaper proposes a new approach to integration - API-led connectivity - that extends traditional service oriented approaches to reflect today’s connectivity needs. We’ll outline the core of this approach and implementation challenges and discuss how IT leaders can realize this vision in their own organizations.
The business of IT has changed dramatically. An always-on, always-connected world means that competition is fiercer, customers are more demanding, and businesses need to innovate faster than ever. Companies can try to harness digital transformation by trying to do things the old way, but they will fall behind; the traditional IT operating model is fracturing under the digital demands of their customers, partners and employees.
This book will showcase:
-how digital transformation is affecting your business
-a roadmap to help you innovate faster, lower operational costs, and increase your IT capacity
-real-life case studies of companies who achieved great business outcomes through API-led connectivity
Today everything truly is connected to everything, and APIs are the connection mechanisms. Many companies are finding that their use of APIs has accelerated over the past 12 months, and that it will continue to accelerate during the next 12 months. APIs aren't really a new technology; they've actually been around for a long time. What is new is that they are in far broader usage today than they have been in the past. As of late 2015, the
ProgrammableWeb API directory listed more than 14,000
When thinking about designing and managing APIs, a number of important questions arise. Why are APIs so well used and what effect would they have on your business? What is the impact of the expanding API economy on both providers and consumers? What are API tools and how can an investment in tools be an extremely cost efficient foundation for production grade API use cases?
Data is one of the most valuable business assets. Companies are using data to provide more personalized, tailored experiences to their customers, analyzing customer and operational behavior to make better decisions, and providing web and mobile apps to their customers, employees, and partners. As the keys to that data, APIs are poised to become valuable business assets in and of themselves.
In this whitepaper, we'll learn how APIs are currently transforming the enterprise, and how they will become even more integral to how we do business in the future.

Today’s business world is evolving at a faster rate than ever before. Customers and partners expect IT organizations to rapidly deliver new products and services while maintaining legacy applications and infrastructures, grappling with vendor lock-in, and operating on constrained budgets. In the face of all these challenges, IT organizations struggle to keep up with the demands of the business. These pressures are forcing strained organizations to review their processes and infrastructure to find new ways to increase their ability to quickly deliver high-quality applications.
