Impact of IBM System p Server Virtualization

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Feb 25, 2008
Virtualization is no longer an “emerging” technology. Its potential to increase the efficiency of IT infrastructures has become widely recognized. But key questions are raised in the early stages of virtualization planning: should it be implemented only for new projects, or applied to existing infrastructures? Should opportunities be pursued on a case-by-case basis, or targeted as a broader goal of IT strategy?

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Mar 28, 2008

But as the value of the SOA concept has become more apparent and its tools have grown in both scope and robustness, organizations are applying them more broadly, to organizational-size problems and mission critical issues, leveraging more and more existing code and production systems.

Maximizing Your Virtual Environment for the Latest Business Initiatives

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Oct 10, 2013
Virtualization is one of the most highly demanded of all IT projects this decade because it enables enterprises to reduce capex and opex costs and at the same time increase business efficiency and agility. However, implementing, supporting, and managing virtualization can often be difficult tasks, especially as deployments increase in scale and complexity and impact more areas of the datacenter. These more complex infrastructures often require highly skilled engineers with in-depth business knowledge and systems management capabilities. Projects such as infrastructure optimization and automation initiatives for self-service provisioning are key because they enable enterprises to streamline business processes and utilize cloud strategies and mobility solutions. IDC shows how partnering with experts who can implement, optimize, support, and manage virtualized environments may be the right course of action. By utilizing partners, enterprises will be able to avoid some of the potential pit

Connecting PPM and software delivery

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 16, 2014
Instead of only managing projects, organizations do need to manage value! "Doing the right things" and "doing things right" are the essential ingredients for successful software and systems delivery. Unfortunately, with distributed delivery spanning multiple disciplines, geographies and time zones, many organizations struggle with teams working in silos, broken lines of communication, lack of collaboration, inadequate traceability, and poor project visibility. This often results in organizations "doing the wrong things" and "doing things wrong", with associated higher costs, project delays and lower quality.

Gartner Magic Quadrant for On-premise Application Integration Suites

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 22, 2014
According to the recent Gartner Magic Quadrant for ON-Premises Integration Suites, application integration patterns were originally applied for internal, application-to-application (A2A) integration and for integrating an organization's applications with that of its trading partners - known as B2B integration. Today, these patterns are applied to a broader array of application integration projects, such as creating new compositions using mobile apps and on-premises back-end services in support of bring-your-own-device initiatives.
