At the heart of a successful agile development team is a skilled group of developers. Agile software professionals continuously deliver on their objectives, but they need robust development tools and practices to maximize their productivity. If you’re a software developer or solution architect, you'll gain the insights you need to ensure your team has the right tools and practices to maximize your effectiveness in agile development.
Agile methods have become increasingly popular because they empower organizations to more quickly address emerging opportunities, to better ensure accurate fulfillment of functional requirements and to significantly enhance team productivity. Many organizations, however, are hesitant to employ agile methods for their safety-critical systems—since they have serious concerns about compromising those systems and thereby exposing themselves to completely unacceptable consequences.IBM Rational Chief Evangelist Bruce Powel Douglass explains how best practices for project management can assist organizations in experiencing all the benefits of agile development while continuing to maintain rigorous standards essential for successful delivery of safety-critical systems.
Agile methods have a reputation for being fast and adaptive and can enhance both quality and team productivity. For these reasons they are attractive to software teams in many different domains - including safety-critical systems development. But how can agile methods be adapted to meet the needs of such a challenging domain? In the fourth episode of the series, IBM Rational Chief Evangelist, Bruce Powel Douglass discusses how agile practices can be adapted to meet the evidence needs of safety-critical projects.

In this executive brief, you’ll learn:
• The primary purpose of cloud-based sync/share and cloud-based endpoint backup
• The main differences between them
• Why your organization’s risk management and data security strategies demand a
standalone enterprise endpoint backup solution
Valuable enterprise data lives on endpoint devices, changes constantly and flows freely throughout organizations. But what happens when that data is inappropriately shared or breached because a business user adopts an unsafe consumer-based sync and share tool?
Technology advances are changing the way employees work, consumers buy, and enterprises conduct business. Old methods for marketing products are taking a back seat to online distribution, and mobile devices are ubiquitous access points to the Internet. The resulting environment is ripe for the creation and distribution of new software for handling a constantly expanding array of functions. When there is an app for everything, organizations have no choice but to adapt or risk getting left behind as markets enter the era of the Web application programming interface (API).
This paper explores how companies can more safely introduce employee- or corporate-owned mobile devices into the work-place, identify the risks inherent in their broader access to corpo-rate data, and derive enhanced business value.
This white paper discusses the key market trends and challenges facing organizations as they seek to deploy mobile enterprise solutions and examines the growing requirements of these firms. It also delivers an overview of how enterprises can address the challenges in terms of repackaging and optimizing applications to better operate in a converged, dynamic mobile world.

This webinar covers the best practices, methods and standards for time off accruals that are enhancing PTO policies nationwide, while showing you how a customizable automated time and attendance platform can provide workforce analytics and labor management solutions — all from your web-browser.
Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done.
This paper outlines:
The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks;
What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats;
A reimagined approach to IT security.
Organizations face a new breed of cyber attacks that easily thwart traditional defenses. These advanced attacks are targeted. They are persistent. And they are devastatingly effective at breaching your systems and stealing your sensitive data.
This paper examines:
The limitations of existing security solutions;
Several security architectures, including sandbox-based products;
An architecture built from the ground up to truly protect against today's advanced attacks.
This white paper describes software as the invisible thread that links product parts into an intelligent whole. It examines software delivery for smart products and strategies for evolving software development into a business process.
Organizations developing products and systems in industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, medical devices and consumer electronics are undergoing a transformation driven by the rapid growth in functionality delivered by software and electronics. This paper outlines an approach for using this shift to gain a competitive advantage.
This executive summary discusses the current state of project portfolio management and how it could help drive value in software delivery when it focuses on doing the right thing at the right time instead of simply on efficiency.
Android, iOS and Windows tablets and smartphones play an increasing role in enterprise computing, providing new flexibility and mobility for workers and IT—but creating new challenges around security. This paper describes these issues and explains how they can be addressed effectively with Citrix BYOD solutions.
New ways of working call for new ways of managing risk. Mobility, flexwork, bring-your-own device (BYOD) and increased collaboration across organizations have changed the risk profile and undermine existing IT architectures. The challenge is to allow people the flexibility they need for optimal business productivity while ensuring the security and compliance required by the enterprise. This paper describes how desktop virtualization can help regain control and reduce risk without sacrificing business productivity and growth.
Mobility and consumerization are little more than buzzwords without the applications that drive business activities. A successful enterprise mobility strategy places priority on applications first, mapping their mission to the variety of use cases out in the field. Success with mobilizing Microsoft® Windows® applications also requires a broad technology approach. The right approach integrates a universal client and single sign-on with a comprehensive application delivery platform to ensure information security and a seamless user experience. This paper describes how you can simplify application mobilization with Citrix.
Finance is often first to adopt software solutions to automate business transactions and processes. Oracle Financials Cloud is a complete and integrated financial management solution. Businesses deploy Oracle Financials Cloud to help resolve pain points around control, compliance, and more.
Smarter spend management is lacking in most organizations, largely due to the tools being used to manage their procurement processes.
