AppDynamics: Application Analytics for the New Millennium What’s old is new again. That maxim is no truer than in the white hot Application Performance Management (APM) market. A decade ago APM was a dusty corner of enterprise IT, focusing on keeping creaky enterprise apps up and running. Today, the world has changed. Applications have changed. Enterprise IT is undergoing rapid reinvention. As a result, APM is now at the crux of the digital transformation trend. And squarely in the center of this firestorm is San Francisco-based AppDynamics. Ask any teenager about applications and they’ll look at you funny and say, “you mean, apps?” and hold up their smartphone. Today, mobile apps lead the reinvention of the application, filtering down from the consumer space into all corners of the enterprise. The democratization of IT has upended the notion of an enterprise applic... (more)

IBM: Capitalizing On Cloud Disruption

When we talk about the disruption that results from digital transformation, we usually focus on enterprise consumers of technology. However, it’s also shaking up the enterprise software and hardware marketplace as well – and every large incumbent vendor is feeling the pinch. Leading the pack of transform-or-die incumbents is IBM. This 103-year-old behemoth has a market cap of about $160 billion, although recent earnings have disappointed investors. Nevertheless, as a result of several key decisions they have made over the last twenty years, they are perhaps better suited to weat... (more)

Compuware May Have a Future After Its Leveraged Buyout Finance experts say the continued profits from Compuware’s mainframe business will be key to paying off the debt from the company’s $2.4-billion buyout.

But industry experts note that predictions of an imminent Death of the Mainframe have been coming for decades and were always proven wrong. Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, an IT consulting firm, said mainframe computers are still heav... (more)

Dangers of Bimodal IT By @TheEbizWizard | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Beware the Dangers of Bimodal IT Many traditional IT executives, reinvigorated and rejuvenated after attending last week's Gartner Symposium/ITxpo in Orlando, are now breathing a huge sigh of relief. They had been worried they'd have to revamp how they were running their IT shop and bring in a bunch of tattooed hipsters spouting talk of Agile and DevOps, preaching agility but bringing nothing but chaos. Perish the thought. Instead, Gartner says, relax. Bimodal IT is the way to go. Split your technology efforts into two parts. Let the Agile cognoscenti take over the first part,... (more)

What Is a Digital Professional? By @TheEbizWizard | @CloudExpo [#BigData]

What Is a Digital Professional? I’ve started using the phrase digital professional, in particular in my recent article dinging Amazon’s cloud division Amazon Web Services (AWS) for not having a clear digital strategy. However, I haven’t been very clear on what I mean, so it’s time to put a finer point on this terminology. The role of digital professional begins back in the 1990s with the rise of the web professional: people who worked on web sites in some capacity. Some of them were technical, able to sling HTML or JavaScript or perhaps Perl back in the day. Other designated as ... (more)
