Best Practices in Cross-Platform MAM

As the idea of comprehensive Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) has taken shape, organizations are increasingly enabling the kind of true mobility their employees have been clamoring for – and apps are a driving force.

For businesses, the ability to make this sort of mobility a reality for users has a lot to do with new developments in technology: advances not just in Mobile Device Management (MDM), but in Mobile App Management (MAM), Mobile Content Management (MCM) and security. MDM systems manage the basic configuration of device settings, access parameters, and policies/controls. MAM and MCM are software and services that can control how apps and content are accessed and used inside and outside of the office.

Inktank: CRUSH ALGORITHM

Ceph is in the Linux kernel and has been integrated with the leading open source cloud management platforms. Key to Ceph’s design is the autonomous, self-healing, and intelligent Object Storage Daemon (OSD). Storage clients and OSDs both use the Controlled, Replication, Under, Scalable, Hashing (CRUSH) algorithm to efficiently compute information about data containers on demand, instead of having to depend on a central lookup table.

CRUSH provides a better data management mechanism than older approaches and enables massive scale by cleanly distributing the work to all the clients and OSDs in the cluster. CRUSH uses intelligent data replication to ensure resiliency, which is better suited to hyper-scale storage. Let’s take a deeper look at how CRUSH works to enable modern cloud storage infrastructures.

Transforming How We Deliver Value: Agility at Scale

Continuous delivery in software development allows us to deliver incrementally, get quick feedback, and react. A key enabler is the adoption of agile techniques and methods; key inhibitors in the enterprise are size, scale, and complexity. Now we must coordinate work across multiple interdependent teams to deliver value, rather than focusing on developing a single product or application. Amy Silberbauer shares her experience of adapting SAFe in an enterprise organization and describes the struggles, mistakes, and successes throughout that process. Learn how to avoid some common pitfalls as you and your own organization embark on this same transformation.
