Determine the right cloud orchestration strategy to address the unique needs and pain points of your organization while increasing productivity and spurring innovation. This tech talk provides an overview of a simple, flexible cloud orchestration strategy that can help increase productivity and spur innovation.
Software is developed, tested, and deployed in clouds. Additionally, the need to accelerate time to market and reduce development effort make code reuse and open source software an attractive option for all software projects. Managing and complying with open source software licenses obligations requires an accurate understanding of all external components in a code portfolio. Watch a demo of the open source software detection and reporting options available through Protecode on IBM® SmartCloud®.
Even though server proliferation can be partially addressed through virtualization, the usage of virtual and physical assets becomes complex to accurately assess or manage. Cost management is crucial to integrate into overall service management, especially with a move into cloud. This tech talk discusses how to implement a financial management roadmap and the key requirements for cloud transparency-- the ability to allocate IT costs, usage, and value.
Getting applications to the cloud leveraging IBM pattern technology and SmartCloud Application Services
There is a growing expectation to be able to leverage applications through the cloud. Users are interested in leveraging these applications through public clouds and even their own private cloud.
