Cloud computing refers to the use of Internet ("cloud") based computer technology for a variety of services. It is a style of computing in which dynamically scalable and often virtualisedresources are provided as a service over the Internet. Users need not have knowledge of, expertise in, or control over the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them.

With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.
This e-book includes a summary of the key components of some of the emerging approaches to WAN architecture and design and concludes with a call to action that outlines a project plan that network organisations can use to evolve their WAN.
This case study reveals how Interroll, a leading provider of high-quality core products for internal logistics, became frustrated with the high cost and complexity of MPLS and turned to Silver Peak to build an SD-WAN.
Perhaps the biggest transformation in enterprise IT since the public cloud emerged is the move toward “mobile-first” application development. As mobility continues to become the new enterprise standard, developers are looking for frameworks that provide the tools they need to create innovative mobile applications without sacrificing their existing investments.
While there are proven, enterprise-ready frameworks and platforms for developing and deploying traditional desktop applications, the mobile application development landscape is still evolving. Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) attempts to fill the gap between traditional application platforms and mobile applications. It is the new middleware, exposing APIs and functions that enable developers to rapidly build new mobile apps and mobile-enable legacy enterprise applications.
Many larger enterprises have a variety of different integration technologies based on deep integration requirements or simply because consolidation failed in past. Hybrid² integration capabilities improve the interoperability and coexistence of multiple integration tools in merged scenarios.
