The_Case_for_Emotional_Intelligence.jpgAlmost everyone has experienced points in their career that are high pressure enough to be uncomfortable. IT environments in particular deal with a great amount of precise data, often working with the information under deadline. On top of it, the functions are vital to other areas of a company 24 hours a day - there is no “grace period” for resolving an IT difficulty.

IT_Modernization.jpgBecause legacy apps have various factors dependent on their platform, many are not portable to the Cloud easily.

 

Methodologies are thus needed to prepare well for modernizations.

 

In government IT systems, for example, older systems account for more than half of the IT expenditures, and cost literally billions for maintenance.

How to Modernize Legacy Apps for Hybrid Cloud

Posted by Satish Reddy

Nov 16, 2015 9:00:00 AM

How_to_Modernize_Legacy_Apps_for_Hybrid_CloudMore than a third of enterprises will have at least half of their applications on a cloud platform by the end of 2017, and the ramp-up toward migrating such huge amounts of applications to the hybrid cloud has many implications.

Which applications should be moved? What about those more than a decade old?

 

Hybrid clouds are desirable because they allow movement of information between public and private cloud platforms. For example, a company’s big data application that requires expensive storage systems may run more cost effectively on a public cloud, while sensitive data may be better to remain on a private cloud.

Is_It_Time_to_Worry_About_Application_ModernizationIs it time to worry about application modernization?

 

A recent article in Forbes makes the argument that yes, in many cases, it really is.

 

Converting outdated legacy applications into new versions for cloud, mobile and digital-ready is something that is closer than the horizon.

 

Still, the choice of which software is facing its time is an important consideration.

 

Some legacy software is still performing well for the tasks for which it was created.  For others, modernization is an idea whose time has come – but rip and replace is never necessary, Forbes writes.  Many factors must be weighed carefully.

Apple’s Swift and What it Means for Enterprise Mobility

Posted by Satish Reddy

iOS_8_Swift_Mobile_DevelopmentArticle Body: At the most recent Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC), Apple unveiled its brand new programming language called Swift. Designed for iOS and OS X, this new language is meant to make it easier for developers to create applications and ultimately provide a better user experience. Let’s now take a look at what Apple’s Swift means for enterprise mobility and the positive changes that businesses can expect.

 

Easier to Develop

 

When compared to Objective-C, Swift is considerably easier to read and understand. According to Keith Blount, the developer behind acclaimed writing software Srivener, “My first impression is that it is a fun, clean language to work with that should result in easier-to-read, shorter code.” Because it doesn’t require semi-colons at the end of each line and there are fewer symbols to deal with, developers can create code more efficiently and with less hassle than in the in the pas

What Grades would Peter Parker Earn in Field Service Management?

Field Service ManagementA field service manager and Peter Parker (a.k.a. Spider-Man) have more in common than you might initially believe. Both jobs involve pleasing the public, both are high-stress positions and both typically gain more attention when things go wrong than when things go right. Although Peter Parker normally meets all challenges that come his way, he probably would not do as well in field service management.

How Moving To Cloud Will Change The Way You Do Business Forever

migrating_to_cloudIt has been argued that cloud computing is the most innovative game-changer for businesses since the inception of the Internet. The cloud has changed the way that individuals interact and share ideas. As an example, Professor Yochai Benker of Harvard Law School uses the phrase "commons-based peer production" to describe the wave of collaborative projects in which a large number of people provide their creative energies to fill a need. Without cloud computing and the Internet, such projects would be extremely more difficult, if not impossible. While migrating or moving to cloud becomes even more widespread, it has the potential to change many aspects of life -- including the way that companies do business, especially in the following five ways.

Maximize your investment through Enterprise Application Modernization

Modernize_your_IT-2

 

In 1973 when Martin Cooper placed the first call over a mobile phone from midtown Manhattan back to Bell Laboratories in New Jersey, it was pretty obvious he was onto something big. But who would have thought at the time that the mobile phone would transform the workforce and the way business gets done. But here we are 40 years later, and IT departments across the globe are looking for ways to make critical business information available to users wherever and whenever they want it through mobility, the cloud and social collaboration.

 

Yet the need to support new business requirements poses a significant challenge to corporate IT departments. Most legacy applications – some as much as 20 to 30 years old - are not suitable for today’s new mobile and social business technologies because of issues surrounding data security. Nor are these systems able to deliver the on-demand services digitally empowered customers have come to expect.  Adding to the problem, many businesses are running on software that already is suffering from repeated patching and reliance on old programming languages that drain resource.
