While some are still adjusting to the idea, you’re well aware that we’re living in an application economy. For the uninformed, an application economy is where everything is driven by a connected, mobile, application-based world where your customers are far more likely to experience your brand and interact with your enterprise through a software application than a live person. But, beyond the benefits, each day you’re feeling the pressure it exerts on your budget, resources and network.
You’ve seen this wave swell on the horizon, and now it’s arrived: executives are enthusiastic and asking about strategies, and line-of-business leaders are requesting faster dev times and more complex projects. Staking out your place as a leader in this new landscape will require you to develop and deliver high-impact applications faster than ever before.
Manch einer muss sich noch an den Gedanken gewöhnen, dass wir in einer Application Economy leben. Sie sind sich dessen bereits voll bewusst. Für alle, die sich jetzt fragen, wovon die Rede ist: In einer Application Economy findet das Leben in einer verbundenen, mobilen, auf Anwendungen basierenden Welt statt, in der Kunden weitaus häufiger über eine Softwareanwendung mit Ihrer Marke Kontakt haben und mit Ihrem Unternehmen interagieren als im persönlichen Kontakt. Das kann sehr nützlich sein. Aber Sie stehen auch jeden Tag unter Druck, denn diese Lage hat Folgen für Budget, Ressourcen und Netzwerk.
Every enterprise has a wide variety of IT requirements where integration is needed. The rapid proliferation and adoption of cloud and mobile technologies has accentuated the financial impact of these needs. In response, the integration space has matured to include feature-rich stacks from enterprise integration vendors that provide full, multi-layer platforms in the form of an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) or SOA suite. But with these very broad capabilities comes complexity—multi-layer stacks can be difficult and costly to install, debug, administer and secure.

Network Centric Operations (NCO) recognises the demand for pervasive decision-making in the modern battlespace. NCO provides the ability to leverage information networks to generate a more dynamic and agile decision-making space. An important dimension of this approach is the technological flexibility to quickly move the decision-making authority hierarchically or geographically as the situation demands. A fundamental enabler to this approach is the concept of a services orientated architecture (SOA). The use of industry-standard IT architectures provides the means of ensuring that systems can be provisioned rapidly, can be shared as appropriate, and can give the flexibility and response times required within such challenging environments.
