Software application development can be accelerated.
More specifically, software acceleration technologies exist to pump extra optimisation and performance out of existing tools -- although in this category we often primarily talk about GPU-based acceleration, it has to be said.
Cloud adoption is accelerating amongst businesses as they look to move their IT to a more efficient and streamlined process. This is often the business case for newer, more agile IT with complex distributed applications.
However, security, flexibility and trust, which depends on the operating system as much as the network the cloud is built on, is becoming increasingly important.
In combination with this, enterprise demands are not limited to a particular geography; they demand a global networked cloud infrastructure. Connecting traditional in-house IT (more often than not, systems of record) with cloud based agile IT (a.k.a systems of engagement) is the optimal solution today for most companies' IT requirements.
This involves a combination of private compute, network and storage, and public cloud infrastructure, the latter being far more DevOps friendly.
DevOps is all the rage in the trendiest IT circles. Many organizations are spinning up their own DevOps team, while others are building entirely new organizations around the idea. With the recent growth of ultra-scaling startups like Uber and AirBNB, DevOps is the next standard in how IT organizations produce great outcomes in a faster and easier way.
DevOps—the integration of development and operations teams to drive faster and more efficient applications to the business—has been championed as delivering a wide range of business and technical benefits. Whether it’s more stable operating environments, faster delivery of features, quicker resolution of problems, or continuous software delivery, few industry pundits and analysts dispute the benefits that DevOps delivers.
