Optimize Your Application Organizational Structure

CEB IT

In the application industry, one of the most common questions for leaders is how to choose the “right” structure to achieve optimal business results and delivery for their organizations. The advent of digital business has huge ramifications on the future of the application organization. Hotle says this is why application leaders must have forethought and planning. Application organizations are not stand-alone entities. Two basic models for organizing application teams.

5 Approaches to Cloud Applications Integration

CEB IT

Cloud-based applications are proliferating as organizations adopt software as a service (SaaS) and cloud-native development to enable digital business. At the same time, the number of options available for integrating these applications with each other and with on-premises systems is growing. Solution architects must decide on the best way to create integration between cloud-hosted, SaaS and on-premises applications.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

How to future-proof cloud applications

David Linthicum

Chances are, you’re either building a net-new application in the cloud or using native technology such as serverless or machine learning. Or, you’re porting an application to the cloud, either refactoring it to leverage native services, or lifting and shifting with little or no modification to the code or data. How do you ensure these applications last more than a few years on the cloud?

Your cloud-based application could be a profitable product

David Linthicum

In the world of application development, there is enterprise grade and product grade. Product grade software means a software system built at such a high degree of quality that it’s able to provide value for many different platforms, problem domains, and enterprises. If you’ve never heard those terms before, you’re not alone.

IPSLA: Your IT Early Warning System

CTOvision

When applications slow down, users call to complain. Wouldn’t it be nice to know if applications are slowing down before users called? Well, ITIL promised that if we used a Service Desk and CMDB to discover and map out all our applications, we would be proactive in our service management. Application Performance Management was going to save the day. By monitoring the performance of our applications, we would get better triage and faster MTTR. Nathaniel Crocker.

The script will read the XML files and know to exclude those applications from the listing. Specifically, the script reads tasks that are Install Application types.

Unconventional Metrics for IT Applications Portfolio Investment

CEB IT

One of the perennial jobs for IT applications teams who develop and maintain in-house software applications is to manage the portfolio of existing apps used by the company. And what separates the good from bad investment decisions in the applications budget is economic insight. All this requires the right analysis of measures which shed light on the health of the applications portfolio, and so tell teams where investment decisions need to be made.

Fix your applications before migrating them to the cloud

David Linthicum

These days, enterprises are moving massive numbers of applications to the cloud in a process called "lift and shift." The trouble with this approach is that many -- and I mean many -- enterprise applications need a whole lot of improvements to work well in the cloud. They are not properly designed for the cloud (the data is too coupled with the logic), there are systemic performance problems, their security is lacking.
