How New Cloud Strategies Drive Productivity and Savings for the App Economy

Today’s dynamic business climate is increasingly application-powered, and as a result the need for code to address change is accelerating. Even businesses that have already adopted agile development and deployment processes and DevOps strategies are struggling with many challenges including:

  • Requirement for significant IT involvement to deliver functionality
  • The increasing challenge of “multi-speed” IT and connecting front-end and back-end systems, exacerbated by application and data siloes
  • Application development, testing and QA backlogs due to increasing user demands driven by consumerization of IT

to name just a few. Attend this TechBytes video series sponsored by IBM to learn how organizations of all types and sizes are now addressing these myriad challenges by adopting new development and execution platforms that accelerate the entire application lifecycle while creating substantial savings. These bite-sized webinars will cover the latest market conditions in the application development arena, with a particular focus on mobile; dive into the greatest challenges facing development and deployment teams today, and present strategies and tactics that can reduce workload, deliver more, faster, while getting more out of your IT dollar.

Why IoT Needs a Data Integration Strategy

One of the exciting areas of the IoT is its potential to change how we engage with technology and transact business. The move to IoT is providing unprecedented access to data that either didn’t exist before, or was too complicated and expensive to collect. While the Machine to Machine (M2M) era focused mainly on the challenges of connecting devices, the IoT era concentrates on the opportunities presented to businesses who use connected data. This data can provide valuable context for business processes. By collecting and analyzing IoT data, groups within an organization can increase efficiencies with services such as predictive maintenance and route optimization. It can also improve the customer experience by supporting new service experiences such as omnichannel retail and smart home applications.

IoT Upsets Application Development

Before IoT, applications worked using a "request and response" design where information flows in one direction. Now with the emergence of IoT, applications need to be able to flow data both ways and be able to learn from the incoming data to make improvements on-the-fly.

This report will provide you with insight into how applications must now be developed to cater to an IoT world and how you can incorporate machine learning to facilitate IoT data interpretation.
