Aberdeen Publishes Enterprise Mobility, App Performance, IT Infrastructure/Virtualization Research

Research Examines IBM Enterprise Mobility Initiative, Performance Management, SaaS App Deployment Models, Public and Private Cloud

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/12/13 -- Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the publication of new research reports from its Enterprise Mobility and Collaboration, Networking and Application Performance, and IT Infrastructure/Virtualization and the Cloud research practices.

"IBM Goes All Out, Puts Mobile First," from Andrew Borg, Research Director for the Aberdeen Enterprise Mobility and Collaboration research practice, evaluates the potential impact of IBM's announcement of their MobileFirst enterprise mobility initiative. On February 21, 2013, IBM announced MobileFirst as a comprehensive company-wide initiative to bring all of their enterprise mobility solutions and services under a unified brand family. The MobileFirst strategy rests on four pillars: mobile application platforms, application and device management, device and data security, and system and performance analytics.

"Performance Management Gets Real About Users", authored by Jim Rapoza, Senior Research Analyst for the Aberdeen Networking and Application Performance research practice, analyzes the growing emphasis on the use of real-user monitoring throughout all aspects of application performance management. Businesses have recognized that one of the best metrics of an application's success is found by monitoring and analyzing the performance and user experience of applications from the viewpoint of real application users. This report looks at the importance of real-user monitoring as part of an overall performance management strategy.

"The Growing Importance of SaaS as an Application Deployment Model" one of three reports authored this month by Dick Csaplar, Senior Research Analyst for the Aberdeen IT Infrastructure/Virtualization and the Cloud research practice, shows that the use of Software-as-a-Service or SaaS has wide adoption. Most software vendors have deployed a SaaS version of their software and enterprises of all sizes are quickly adopting them. Seventy-six percent (76%) of responding companies reported using at least one SaaS application with 50% reporting that they use 3 or more. About 8% reported using 7 or more different SaaS apps as part of their corporate infrastructure.

Next from Csaplar, "Why Mid-Sized Organizations should Consider Using the Public Cloud" shows that mid-sized organizations have the IT challenges of a large enterprise but resources more like small companies. Mid-sized companies have both operational and financial pressures to use Public Cloud services and data shows that those who are using the Cloud are gaining greatly from it. Mid-sized companies are also the right target for Cloud vendors as mid-sized, more than small or large organizations report planning to increase Cloud spending by a higher percentage or start new Cloud programs in the next 12 months.

Finally from Csaplar, "How Private Clouds can Transform IT in Midsize Companies" shows that mid-sized companies have deployed a Private Cloud at a lower rate than either small or large enterprises. Mid-sized companies that have deployed a Private Cloud are gaining strong operational and financial benefits such as faster application deployment and lower cost for IT. However, to maximize those gains a strong Cloud management tool is required to enable both end user self-administration and IT infrastructure management.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
