Modern companies are looking for technologies that transform their IT departments into agile business units capable of delivering continuous application availability through updates and upgrades. Well-managed change can enable greater efficiencies along with more reliable and secure delivery of services.
Performance is central to an excellent user experience. Maintaining performance while scaling an application ecosystem ensures that response times meet service-level agreements (SLAs) for financial and supply chain management, among other functions. Application administration teams must have the confidence to deploy copies of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems while providing a highly responsive experience for end users, developers, and other groups. The automation of routine tasks such as provisioning ERP systems means a faster time-to-value, an increase in operational efficiencies, and delivery of a more reliable product.
The modern application system must include a broad range of resiliency capabilities, high availability (HA), and protection solutions that provide optimal application uptime.
