Software Development is a term to encompass the processes of software engineering combined with the research and goals of software marketing to develop computer software products. Synonyms include software life cycle and software process. There are several models for such processes, each describing approaches to a variety of tasks or activities that take place during the process.

Organizations of all sizes need help building clusters and grids to support compute- and data-intensive application workloads. Read how the Hartree Centre is building several high-performance computing clusters to support a variety of research projects.
IBM® has created a proprietary implementation of the open-source Hadoop MapReduce run-time that leverages the IBM Platform™ Symphony distributed computing middleware while maintaining application-level compatibility with Apache Hadoop.
This paper gives information about how Automatic Exploit Prevention significantly reduces the risk of infection from widespread malware, or more targeted attacks using exploits – even when a zero-day vulnerability is used.
Learn more about the benefits of Bluemix. This webcast focuses on building an Android application using the MobileData service. Walk-through the real process and workflow used to build and link the MobileData service within your application.
"Agile companies push new application versions to production every few weeks, sometimes even faster. With super-fast Beta cycles being the norm, getting various user groups, such as remote QA teams, access to staging environments can slow down your delivery timelines. What if you could enable secure access for any number of users in 15 minutes?
BubblewrApp’s Service Access Service (SAS) is a turnkey, cloud-based service that acts as the first line of defense for your applications. BubblewrApp’s SAS enables its customers to grant easy access to applications deployed ""behind the firewall"" (on premise) or ""inside the Virtual Private Cloud"" (in a public cloud) from any remote location. Customers can begin leveraging SAS within minutes without requiring any changes to pre-existing network and security policies. The result is a vastly superior secure application access model that enables a zero CapEx, low OpEx model for secure application access, both on premise and in the public cloud."
Delivering combination of real time voice, video, and data is bandwidth intensive and requires complex network configuration to ensure the delivery of these time sensitive applications.
Download this paper to learn the recent WAN technology trends to enable companies to roll out and support UC without the cost and complexity of traditional WAN.
Traditional WAN technologies are a mismatch for modern branch networks.
Enterprises need branch offices to be up and running quickly. Branch WAN costs are increasing dramatically. So is WAN traffic. IT departments are losing visibility and control. This is not sustainable. There has to be a new way!
Today’s malware authors continue to increase their capabilities faster than security solutions can adapt to them. Whether it’s changing their attacks or hiding malicious code within web pages, it’s more difficult to identify legitimate network traffic. With first-generation network security devices, it is nearly impossible to defend against today’s threats. The situation will get worse before it gets better. Adversaries now utilize agile development and testing methods to develop their malware, they test new malware against the latest security software to increase effectiveness. Next-generation network security devices are emerging that provide the visibility and situational context required to meet today’s threats. These solutions use security automation to provide a sophisticated solution that is both lightweight and agile
Modern data centers have and continue to undergo transformation. Driven by familiar trends, green IT, endpoint growth, externalization, and increased resource requirements, modern data centers support more services, users, and data than ever before. The potential of new risks to the modern data center demands renewed attention to data center security. Data center architects must build in proper security controls, and policies and processes to address and mitigate these new risks.
Recent changes in hacking combined with the emergence of the Internet of Everything have profoundly changed how we protect our systems, driving us to think about a new approach to cybersecurity. In this paper, learn about the challenges that created the need for a new threat-centric security model spanning the full attack continuum: before, during and after an attack.

This TDWI Best Practices report explains the benefits that Hadoop and Hadoop-based products can bring to organizations today, both for big data analytics and as complements to existing BI and data warehousing technologies.
To build modern applications, developers could use some help. That is where application performance management (APM) solutions come in. This whitepaper will provide you 10 ways developers can use APM to improve the quality and performance of their software.
The fundamentals of security and management of software have not changed. But the new computing environment – mobile devices, cloud computing and virtualization – requires new approaches to familiar challenges. What’s more, software publishers are bringing a new energy to their own vigilance. A capricious economy has many of them stepping up the number of customer audits. As organizations deal with these software licensing challenges, they also face increasingly sophisticated security threats that continuously morph, just a step ahead of remedies to stop them. Organizations need a comprehensive approach to security and software asset management. This white paper will examine the interconnection between SAM and security, offering practical advice on how enterprises can protect themselves and where to go for support.
