Performance is a Shape – Not a Number

Report Describes How to Confidently Measure and Explain Performance

The old elements of logging, metrics, and tracing are insufficient for today’s complex software systems.

If you’re considering or in the midst of adopting microservices, you know that faster root cause analysis and the ability to confidently measure and explain performance is key to improve efficiency and save developer time. Read this report to understand why:

  • Countless disconnected time-series statistics aren’t enough to explain the behavior of modern applications.
  • Tools must identify, triage, and explain latency issues, as organizations adopt microservices.
  • It’s critical to evolve our thinking about latency measurements and how they play a part in diagnostic workflows.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server

IT organizations want to deliver greater business value by increasing productivity, delivering services faster, and remaining flexible to incorporate the latest innovations like cloud, containers, and configuration automation. Modern workloads, whether on bare metal, virtual machines, containers, or private or public clouds, are expected to be portable and scalable. They need a modern, secure platform to support those requirements.

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure For Virtualization

Hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is growing in popularity due to its ability to consolidate and simplify compute, storage, and network infrastructure for business-critical applications. As organizations contemplate HCI investments, many are looking to avoid proprietary lock-in—and traditional proprietary storage solutions.

Red Hat® Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization is an ideal solution for business-critical applications in virtualized environments, as well as for various tactical edge deployment scenarios. Built on the strengths of Red Hat Virtualization, Red Hat Gluster® Storage, and Red Hat Ansible® Automation, Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization simplifies planning and procurement, streamlines deployment and management, and provides a single life-cycle experience for virtual compute and virtual storage resources. Compute, storage, and management components are all open source, and organizations can choose among industry-standard hardware or implement validated configurations that best meet their workload needs.

Addressing Challenges in Hybrid Cloud Security

How can you secure your apps and services without compromising your schedule? (Hint: It’s all in the automation.) Enterprises are using hybrid cloud technologies to enrich the user experience and power their digital transformation. But running applications in public clouds while managing the application data in private clouds makes for a unique set of security requirements. We discuss the challenges that DevOps teams face in hybrid environments and how those challenges can be overcome.

Lyft’s Move to Microservices: A Case Study

Lyft’s consumer mobile app has real­time transactions totaling more than one million rides per day, so performance is critically important. The smallest lapses – even a few milliseconds – contribute to negative customer experiences and lost revenue. As Lyft’s Vice President of Engineering, Pete Morelli, explained, “The bigger you get, the better you have to be. Half an hour of downtime may have cost you five rides early on, now it costs millions of dollars in rides. The level of reliability expected of Lyft is not trivial. People are riding to work or to doctors’ appointments.

Step Up Your Team-Selling Game

By now, you’ve heard all the hype about team selling (also known as collaborative selling). Like how it’s the sales method that focuses entirely on the customer. Or that it’s been proven to be especially effective in closing deals with large accounts.

Well, we’re here to affirm that all the hype’s definitely got merit.

In fact, you may be 258% more likely to close a deal as a team versus going at it alone.

Taking Procure-to-Pay to the Next Level with Robotic Process Automation

Organizations have a lot riding on the efficiency and effectiveness of their procure-to-pay processes. Disruptions to an organization’s ability to purchase or pay for materials, goods and services can negatively impact its supply chain, customers and financial standing. Yet, most organizations rely on manual or semi-automated procure-to-pay processes that cost too much, take too long, create too many errors, provide inadequate visibility and frustrate internal stakeholders and suppliers. A big part of the blame can be pinned on the top-down approach that most organizations have traditionally taken to automating business processes. Another contributor is the exploding volume of “dark data” – untapped structured and unstructured data from documents such as invoices, purchase orders and shipping documents. Robotic process automation (RPA) with cognitive automation makes it easier and more cost effective for procure-to-pay organizations to automate. The technology empowers business users with software robots (bots) that automate business processes, such as procure-to-pay, to achieve operational and strategic benefits.

This paper details the challenges with traditional approaches to business process automation, provides an overview of RPA and cognitive automation, and lays out the technology’s benefits in procure-to-pay.
