Best Practices for Managing Risks in Your Cloud Deployment

IT teams are embracing the cloud for its scalability, reliability, flexibility, and rapid deployment capabilities, helping them achieve performance and cost-savings goals.

According to Gartner, by the end of 2019, we’ll see, “30 percent of the 100 largest vendors’ new software investments will have shifted from cloud-first to cloud-only.”

But for enterprises transitioning from on-prem architectures, a move to the cloud opens up new and uncharted territory when it comes to managing risk. Complex, distributed resources in the cloud call for an update to the standard risk management and security approach.

For security teams tasked with securing cloud environments, holding on to pre-cloud tools and mindset is no longer going to work, as the challenges and tools needed to secure cloud environments are different from what was required to secure pre-cloud architectures. Even worse, copying pre-cloud solutions means that the drawbacks of pre-cloud architectures are brought into the cloud world. Only by fully embracing the cloud and its values can enterprises take full advantage of its benefits.

Whitepaper – 7 steps to cultivate a thriving API ecosystem

With an API ecosystem, businesses can democratize access to their existing assets and capabilities through APIs that can be securely shared with external parties. An API ecosystem extends the value of these APIs by bringing internal and external stakeholders together to share knowledge, tools, and assets. This allows organizations to stay agile, deliver faster, and maximize investments. MuleSoft, in partnership with ProgrammableWeb, has created a baseline methodology for establishing an API ecosystem with a customer-centric mindset.

In this whitepaper, you will learn how to:

  • Co-create value partners, customers, and third-party developers.
  • Treat APIs as products through design, delivery, and consumption.
  • Build your organization’s roadmap for creating an API ecosystem.

Whitepaper – Your Roadmap to Government IT Modernization

Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity.

But those approaches are easier talked about than executed. As agencies embark on legacy modernization, it becomes imperative to open up the existing technology so that new innovations can be delivered as needed in a secure way.

In this guide, produced in partnership with Govloop, we will discuss

  • A five-play roadmap to help those in government get a better sense of where to start on modernization projects.
  • An overview of the Information Technology Modernization Fund (ITMF).
  • Featured government success stories highlighting their modernization projects.
  • The IT Modernization Lifecycle, based on the recent report by the American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council.

Whitepaper – Accelerating government IT innovation

Evolving citizen and constituent expectations have created the imperative for government to digitally transform. Delivering on digital transformation grows more challenging by the year, as the proliferation of modern technologies (e.g. SaaS, mobile, IoT) forces IT teams to rethink how to best deliver projects to their constituents and deliver on their mission.

Microservices have emerged as a means through which government IT teams can increase project delivery speed without compromising on security. This whitepaper discusses the role microservices can play in government, and how API-led connectivity helps agencies to more effectively and securely implement a microservices architecture.

Readers will learn:

  • Why government IT teams must move beyond point-to-point integration.
  • How API-led connectivity supports microservices adoption in government.
  • How government can use MuleSoft’s FedRAMP In Process integration platform to rapidly develop APIs and microservices.
