A wireless network is a platform for enabling enterprise-wide access to an organization's applications and data. Wireless infrastructure allows users to take the office with them wherever they go. The wireless network provides employees and guest workers with untethered access to voice, video, data and applications regardless of their physical location. With the influx of mobile devices and increase in Wi-Fi connections, organizations are already starting to see a paradigm shift to "wireless by default" and "wired by exception." Watch this video to see how our solution architects upgraded the Shawnee Mission School District's aging network infrastructure.
Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications.
Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices
from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.

The business context for process excellence and business process management (BPM) has changed dramatically since the 2009-to-2010 recession. During the recession, BPM software and services saw impressive double-digit growth as a result of enterprises slashing costs and boosting worker productivity.
Now, executive agendas have shifted to focus on growing revenue, expanding the customer base, and delivering new digital products and services. Enterprise and process architects are reshaping their business cases for BPM around these new drivers. This is not an easy task. However, process excellence will play a critical role for forward-thinking enterprise architects that invest the time to link BPM to new front-office drivers to help the organization drive digital transformation. This report replaces “Building The Case For Your BPM Initiative” in the business process management playbook and provides guidance on developing revenue and customer-focused business cases.
BPM platforms help solution architects and business outcome owners accelerate application development, transform business processes, and digitalize business processes to exploit business moments. This research provides an overview of many of the products used to address these needs.
This buyer’s guide can help you select the right identity and access management solution to successfully manage and control user access within, across and between organizations.

It then provides a checklist for evaluating solutions and defines the capabilities required to address security complexity, compliance and cost.
CTOs, CIOs, and application architects need access to datacenter facilities capable of handling the broad range of content serving, Big Data/analytics, and archiving functions associated with the systems of engagement and insight that they depend upon to better service customers and enhance business outcomes. They need to enhance their existing datacenters, they need to accelerate the building of new datacenters in new geographies, and they need to take greater advantage of advanced, sophisticated datacenters designed, built, and operated by service providers. IDC terms this business and datacenter transformation the shift to the 3rd Platform.
This document is written for IT decision makers, architects, engineers, and application owners who make architectural decisions for hybrid deployments. The architecture described in this document is for large and medium-sized businesses that are considering hybrid cloud solutions. This document is also useful for service providers that deliver hybrid cloud services to businesses.
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.

"Helping enterprise IT developers, architects, and mobile development leaders select the right platform partners
The mobile application development platform market continues to grow, evolve and mature in response to escalating customer requirements.
Gartner has assessed 20 major vendors that enable enterprise IT developers to create mobile applications for customers, partners, and employees."
Cloud adoption is an expanding part of IT organizations’ strategies, and IT architects are growing more sophisticated in how they think about cloud; however, as of early 2015, relatively few organizations have truly advanced levels of cloud maturity. In IDC’s recent worldwide CloudView Survey, we discovered that nearly 60% of organizations are currently using or planning to implement some form of cloud — whether for a single project or their portfolio, for test/development environments, or to run mission-critical applications 24 x 7 — but only 25% have reached the level that IDC would call “mature”— that is, building repeatable, managed, or optimized cloud strategies. There is significant room for improvement.
Most white papers and webinars available on the Internet about choosing enterprise middleware focus the selection process around criteria such as licensing costs, technical coverage of long lists of specified functionalities, and vendor viability. While these criteria may have been suitable in the past, the experience of many enterprise architects leading J2EE projects over the past few years suggest that they are not enough. What’s missing? People costs.
