"Pressure on IT to deliver new functionality continues to drive faster software development cycles. While agility has always been important, today’s IT teams must operate in a hybrid environment where applications take various forms: legacy systems that remain on-prem, existing applications migrated to the cloud, and new applications built with cloud-native approaches. The combination makes for an increasingly complex IT landscape — one in which simply migrating to the cloud falls short.
Read this Google Cloud guide and learn how IT leaders can better meet today’s challenges by capitalizing on the historic shift toward open, connected environments."
"In a recent global survey conducted on behalf of Google Cloud in association with MIT SMR Custom Studio, respondents were asked: over the last two years, how has your overall confidence in the security of cloud applications and infrastructure changed?
The response was encouraging. 74% of respondents have become more confident in cloud security.
The age of unthinking fears about cloud security is over. Not only is cloud adoption rising steadily across geographies, industries and job functions, but confidence in cloud security is rising as well — to the point where increased security is a major reason enterprises opt for cloud solutions.

" For any business that wants to successfully compete in today’s digital economy, it is not a question of if but rather how much of their business will be done with cloud applications.
A cloud application is one with many endpoints including browsers, mobile devices,
and/or machines that are geographically distributed. The application is intensely transactional (high velocity reads and/or writes), always available, and instantaneously responsive no matter the number of users or machines using the application.
Download this free white paper and explore how DataStax customers are delivering real-time value at epic scale with their cloud applications. Explore the core database requirements that make businesses successful with cloud applications, which include continuous availability, linear scale, and geographic distribution."

The hype around cloud computing has been tremendous. It’s also proven to be justified. In fact, most organisations are already operating with some element of a cloud service as part of their IT infrastructure. While onpremise software becomes obsolete and hybrid solutions fall short, cloud applications enable new ways of delivering innovative solutions. These solutions are practical, and they are easy to use and manage. The cloud now provides the fundamental infrastructure on which innovative organisations can run their businesses.
Le changement n'est jamais facile, surtout lorsqu'il concerne les applications de gestion. Les responsables informatiques savent cependant que passer au cloud permet de gagner en efficacité et en rapidité et de réaliser d'importantes économies.
Mais en quoi les applications Cloud sont-elles si différentes de celles conçues à partir d'une architecture traditionnelle ou hybride ?
Consultez ce livre Blanc de CIO.com pour découvrir les différentes architectures cloud, la façon dont elles influencent les capacités et les performances des applications et ce que cela induit en terme de migration depuis les systèmes actuels.

When it comes to IT infrastructure, it’s fair to say the perimeter has left the premises. Whether it’s discovering short-lived assets (e.g., containers), assessing cloud environments or maintaining web application security, today’s attack surface presents a growing challenge to CISOs looking to understand and reduce their cyber risk. To combat this issue, a discipline called Cyber Exposure is emerging to help organizations manage and measure this risk. This ebook provides insights on how CISOs are addressing the modern attack surface.
Microsoft® Office 365™ continues to lengthen its lead as the world’s top enterprise cloud service. Nearly one-in-four employees in Fortune 500 companies are active on Office 365 — and more than 90% of those large enterprises currently have more than 100 active users. Users are clearly becoming more reliant on Office 365, as usage grew at a rate of more than 300% in 2016.
Encryption technology has enabled much greater privacy and security for enterprises that use the Internet to communicate and transact business online. Mobile, cloud and web applications rely on well-implemented encryption mechanisms, using keys and certificates to ensure security and trust. However, businesses are not the only ones to benefit from encryption.

IT is undergoing a significant transformation as businesses look to streamline costs and roll out a new class of cloud-based applications driven by a changing digital economy. The IT infrastructure as we know it today is not well equipped to improve on the cost structure for traditional workloads nor handle the velocity demands of a new generation of workloads where IT is a focal point for competitive differentiation. As one approach to address these changing demands of IT, vendors are bringing to market new solutions under a new category called “composable infrastructure”.
Online images used to be simple. In the past, they weren’t the focal point of a page — there were only a handful of images on a given page and all users were viewing online images on a desktop with dial-up. That has all changed. Today’s web pages are dynamic, filled with images and viewed by end users on different devices with varying connectivity. As audience expectations for rich web experiences have grown, so has the requirement to deliver increasingly image-heavy web applications. The problem? The cost and complexity of creating, storing, and delivering web images tailored for every device poses a significant challenge for businesses, but failing to address the increasing diversity across devices and networks will lead to a poor and inconsistent user experience. Current solutions don’t solve this problem completely.

Your data center struggles with competing requirements from your lines of business and the finance, security and IT departments. While some executives want to lower cost and increase efficiency, others want business growth and responsiveness. But today, most data center teams are just trying to keep up with application service levels, complex workflows, and sprawling infrastructure and support costs.
The Cloud, once a radical idea in IT, is now mainstream. Whether it’s email, backup or file sharing, most consumers probably use a cloud service or two. Similarly, most IT professionals are familiar with cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft Azure, and many companies have moved at least some of their information technology processes into the cloud. In fact, the cloud has become so popular it’s easy to assume that running IT applications on-premises is not cost competitive with a cloud based service. In this report Evaluator Group will test the validity of that assumption with a TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) model analyzing a hyperconverged appliance solution from HPE and a comparable cloud service from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Technology enables business transformation To thrive in today’s idea economy, small and midsize companies like yours are using technology to transform their business. Like your peers, you know that mobile applications, cloud-based solutions, and advanced analytics can help you increase productivity, reduce costs, and grow your business. Older servers, storage, and networking products weren’t built to handle the exploding amount of data that is being shared today. In order to take advantage of these modern applications, many companies have found that they need to close the gap between what their business demands and what their IT systems can deliver.
In today’s digital marketplace, your applications are your business.
They fuel innovation and are the driving force for staying
competitive in an always-on, always-connected world. Apps are
the way you build relationships with your customers, empower
your employees, facilitate growth, and so much more.

Virtualization has transformed the data center over the past decade. IT departments use virtualization to consolidate multiple server workloads onto a smaller number of more powerful servers. They use virtualization to scale existing applications by
adding more virtual machines to support them, and they deploy new applications without having to purchase additional servers to do so. They achieve greater resource utilization by balancing workloads across a large pool of servers in real time—and they respond more quickly to changes in workload or server availability by moving virtual machines between physical servers. Virtualized environments support private clouds on which application engineers can now provision their own virtual servers and networks in environments that expand and contract on demand.
There’s no denying that today’s workforce is “mobile.” Inspired by the ease and simplicity of their own personal devices, today’s workforce relies on a variety of tools to accomplish their business tasks — desktops, smart phones, tablets, laptops or other connected devices — each with varying operating systems.
The specific tasks they need to accomplish? That depends on the person. But it’s safe to say remotely logging in and out of legacy, desktop, mobile, software as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications is a given.
And the devices on which they work? They could be owned by the enterprise or the end user, with varying levels of company oversight, security and management. The result? An overabundance of “flexibility” that leads to fundamental IT challenges of security and manageability.
