VoIP’s extreme sensitivity to delay and packet loss compared to other network applications
such as web and e-mail services, presents a real challenge. A basic understanding of VoIP traffic
and of the quality metrics provided by VoIP monitoring tools will help keep your network
running smoothly. Follow our 10 VoIP best practices to ensure quality service for your network.
As enterprises become more distributed and migrate applications to the cloud, they will need to diversify
their network performance management solutions. In particular, the network operations team will need to
complement its packet-based monitoring tools with active test monitoring solutions to enhance visibility into
the cloud and help enterprises scale monitoring gracefully and cost-effectively.
Do you want to bring continuous delivery to your organization? Or would you simply like to begin your automation Journey?
CA Technologies Automation Solutions (formerly Automic) proposes a fourstage blueprint to continuous delivery to assist enterprises at any stage of their DevOps journey.
This e-book sets out a plan that can take a company of any maturity level all the way up to enterprise-scale continuous delivery using a combination of CA Continuous Delivery Automation, 40-plus years of business automation experience, and the proven tools and practices the company is already leveraging.
Application release automation (ARA) tools enable best practices in deploying and promoting applicationrelated artifacts, properties, configurations and even data across an application lifecycle in a safe, predictable and repeatable manner. Gartner reports that using an ARA tool is key to enabling DevOps and achieving continuous delivery.
Wikipedia also defines five dimensions of scalability that can apply to ARA tools:
• Administrative scalability
• Functional scalability
• Geographic scalability
• Load scalability
• Generational scalability
This white paper will explain how each of these criteria is relevant when choosing an ARA product that is capable of scaling along with the growth of your enterprise.
Technology is in a constant state of evolution, and the world of automation is no exception. In this eBook, we’ll consider how you can stay ahead of the competition—because in the application economy, it’s vital to ensure the tools your organization uses are capable of positioning you at the forefront of industry—not just today, but tomorrow as well.
We are heading toward a scenario where workload automation tools are capable of thinking for themselves and making decisions based on policy; this is what we at CA Technologies are calling intelligent automation. At the same time, however, more and more challenges are being presented as the increasingly fragmented places our workloads run begin to impact our analytics, reporting and processes. The task is to navigate these hurdles while at the same time allowing our enterprises to harness the power of new technology.
CA Technologies automation solutions help organizations increase business productivity by simplifying the management of complex workloads and empowering development teams with self-service tools that accelerate the development and delivery of new and enhanced applications. CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) that enterprises may realize from automation. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of CA on their organizations.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with CA workload automation (WLA) solutions, Forrester interviewed an existing customer with years of experience using CA. The organization that Forrester interviewed manufactures consumer electronics that it sells through retailers around the globe. Download this whitepaper to find out more.
Enterprises today face the major challenge of how to fully orchestrate the apps that define their business and automate the IT processes underpinning them when much of the infrastructure used to run them is outsourced to cloud providers.
Some cloud service providers offer their own orchestration tools, and each on-premises tool has automation capabilities. But while we own our apps, providers are interchangeable depending on what they can offer and for what price. We should be able to switch between cloud providers and between cloud, on-premises and hybrid infrastructure as and when the business requires, with minimal effort and without losing any control. Sometimes we might want to use more than one provider at the same time, leveraging the advantages of each provider simultaneously.
What is needed is an orchestration layer that remains constant while cloud services come and go; one that enterprises own along with their core apps.
Some SAP systems can take up to 10 days to complete a SAP system copy. That’s 10 days of unproductive time. Why? SAP does not provide the necessary tools out-of-the-box to automate and handle the process efficiently. This means you must use highly skilled SAP BASIS staff to manage the process. Manual steps, along with hundreds of configuration settings, can take days to complete—and like many organizations, you have also experienced too many delays, causing non-production systems to be unavailable, which stalls development, testing and training activities.
So you’ve concluded your SAP system copy process is hindering innovation and productivity. You’re considering automating the process to ensure system copies are available for all environments on time, every time.
What are the key capabilities you actually need to address SAP system copy inefficiency once and for all?
Despite being knowledgeable about their industry and experienced in running their organizations, the majority of business users lack expertise in analytics and visualization techniques—but that doesn't stop them from wanting to have a go. But making tools easier and more widely accessible is only part of the answer. A better approach is to work both sides of the gap. To make tools that can empower business users to discover and unlock value in their data—and that extend capabilities for experts, so they can share the analytics workload, improve efficiency, and focus on higher level work.

The world has changed. Yesterday everyone had a managed PC for work and all enterprise data was behind a firewall. Today, mobile devices are the control panel for our personal and professional lives. This change has contributed to the single largest technology-driven lifestyle change of the last 10 years.
As productivity tools, mobile devices now access significantly more data than in years past. This has made mobile the new frontier for a wide spectrum of risk that includes cyber attacks, a range of malware families, non-compliant apps that leak data, and vulnerabilities in device operating systems or apps. A secure digital business ecosystem demands technologies that enable organizations to continuously monitor for threats and provide enterprise-wide visibility into threat intelligence.

Data is the lifeblood of business. And in the era of digital business,
the organizations that utilize data most effectively are also the most
successful. Whether structured, unstructured or semi-structured,
rapidly increasing data quantities must be brought into organizations,
stored and put to work to enable business strategies. Data integration
tools play a critical role in extracting data from a variety of sources and
making it available for enterprise applications, business intelligence
(BI), machine learning (ML) and other purposes. Many organization
seek to enhance the value of data for line-of-business managers by
enabling self-service access. This is increasingly important as large
volumes of unstructured data from Internet-of-Things (IOT) devices
are presenting organizations with opportunities for game-changing
insights from big data analytics. A new survey of 369 IT professionals,
from managers to directors and VPs of IT, by BizTechInsights on
behalf of IBM reveals the challe
"Multi-stage attacks are an increasingly popular approach used by cybercriminals. By sending a malicious attachment in a phishing email that contains an embedded URL, with no malevolent code, attackers can evade existing security solutions, like sandboxes and AV.
