As announced last week, Jamie Thomas, Vice President of Strategy and Development for IBM Tivoli will host a session at Impact entitled, "Optimizing the World's Infrastructure" that will explore and explain the IBM capabilities that enable Application Acceleration. Jamie will be joined by Bola Rotibi, Research Director at Creative Intellect Consulting, who has recently published articles on IBM's DevOps strategy.
Together, Jamie and Bola will provide an industry wide view that Application Acceleration requires integrating development and IT operational processes, including application performance management. The session will highlight case studies where IBM clients were successful at crossing the chasm between development and IT operations with agility to accelerate market delivery with continuous service improvement.
After Jamie and Bola’s presentation, IBMer Dan Berg will deliver a short demonstration of SmartCloud Continuous Delivery, which will focus on business value over features and functions, while tying in the application performance management tools.
The takeaway: Integrating development and operations will enable you to gain a holistic view of your applications and so that you can manage them. When you can manage your applications, you can predict results more accurately, which enables you to allocate more time and resources to innovation instead of solving problems. And innovation is the not so secret sauce to outpacing your competitors.
