It’s time for IT to let software do more of the work

The world of business technology is under tremendous pressure and most organizations are ill-equipped to deal with the challenges and opportunities that are arising. Software as a Service, big data, cloud, scale-out, containers and microservices are not just buzz-words they are disrupting traditional business models. Further, while these terms and technologies represent a new world of opportunity, they also bring complexity that most IT departments are ill-equipped to pursue. This has become the Big Software era.

To realize the promise of Big Software, companies need an entirely new way of thinking. Where applications were once simple to manage and deploy with a couple of solutions across a couple of machines; companies must now roll out many applications, components, and integration points spread across tens of thousands of on-premise and hosted physical and virtual machines. Companies must have the right mix of products, services, and tools to match the requirements of the business. However, many IT departments are undertaking these challenges with the approaches, processes, and tools developed over a decade ago.

This white paper was written to help today’s executives to understand Big Software and what they need to do in order to take advantage of the many opportunities it has to offer. Download it to find out:

  • What is Big Software and why it impacts us all?
  • How executives should respond to ‘phase shifts’ in IT like Big Software?
  • What are containers and why do they matter to the Big Software era?
  • How the complexities of Big Software can be removed through smart tooling?
