Unified Monitoring

In the past few years, the enterprise computing landscape has changed dramatically. Virtualization, outsourcing, SaaS and cloud computing are creating fundamental changes, and ushering in an era in which enterprises distribute increasingly critical IT assets and applications across multiple service providers. These changes are rendering legacy monitoring tools, which have their roots in the computing environments of a decade or more ago, virtually useless. This paper explores today’s computing trends and their monitoring implications in detail. In addition, it reveals how CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM, formerly CA Nimsoft Monitor) uniquely addresses the monitoring realities of today’s and tomorrow’s enterprises—whether they rely on internal platforms, external service providers or a combination of both.

Warum die Customer Experience für jeden in der Application Economy so wichtig ist

Heute sind die meisten Interaktionen digital. Daher stellen die Erfahrungen, die Sie Ihren Kunden mit Ihren Anwendungen ermöglichen, häufig die wichtigsten Erfahrungen dar, die Ihre Kunden im Rahmen geschäftlicher Aktivitäten mit Ihnen machen.

Agile Operations und die drei Wege

In nahezu jedem Gespräch über DevOps geht es um die Transformation von Development-Teams, die der Übergang vom sequenziellen Design von Wasserfallmethoden zum iterativen, agilen Ansatz von Scrum-Methoden mit sich bringt. Und das ist auch kein Wunder, denn sie ist drastisch, spannend und liefert beeindruckende Ergebnisse. Was hingegen genauso drastisch ist, aber weniger oft erwähnt wird, ist der Wechsel, den IT-Operations-Teams aushandeln müssen. Im Zusammenhang mit der uns bekannten vorhersagbaren Stabilität kann die Andeutung, dass eine wachsende Reihe von als „Agile Operations“ bezeichneten Praktiken existiert, irreführend scheinen. Das aber nur, bis man berücksichtigt, wie Cloud-Computing, Microservices, containerisierte Anwendungen und Ähnliches die Definition von Infrastruktur grundlegend verändern. Diese neue, agile Infrastruktur und die mit ihr verbundenen Konzepte wie zum Beispiel geplante Ausfälle bewirken – oder erfordern gar – die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Development und Operations.

A Guide to REST and API Design

In his 1966 book “The Psychology of Science,” American psychologist Abraham Maslow tackled the idea that those in the field of psychology needed to approach treatment from multiple perspectives, to take on new ideas, and not just continue using the same theories and techniques created by Freud and his followers so many years ago. Acknowledging that changing your point of view can be difficult, Maslow wrote “[I]t is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything like a nail.” We have all had this experience. We get so used to the way things have been done in the past, we sometimes don’t question the reasons for doing them.

5 Ways to Get Top Mobile App Developer Talent for Your Open APIs

In 2007, Apple launched the iPhone, effectively the first smartphone. With its touch-screen interface and ability to run lightweight apps, the iPhone revolutionized the mobile phone market. The arrival of the iPad tablet in 2010 increased the potential of mobile apps significantly, simply by offering a larger touch-screen.

In the wake of the iPhone and iPad has come a deluge of mobile devices, with Google’s Android operating system emerging as a serious competitor to Apple’s iOS technology. In addition to smartphones and tablets, the app paradigm is increasingly being used to enhance and connect all types of devices – from TVs to gaming systems to vehicles to utilities meters and beyond.

A Winning API Strategy: Developing Secure Mobile Apps with a UX that Delights Customers

Today, the UX of an app has come to embody the characteristics of a product or service that are important to the individual. It’s the recognized feeling one receives when interacting with the app, how pervasive the app becomes throughout one’s life and the lasting memory the individual has after connecting with the business.

But a good UX, while ideally delivering enduring business results, must overcome obstacles to be successful. For instance, not every app type has the same user experience. Web apps, while easier to maintain and extend to the mobile device, don’t always render well across different devices ultimately driving organizations to develop new native mobile apps in order to deliver the optimal user experience expected. But native apps possess their own challenges with security being a primary concern.
