How Do I Deliver Robust Applications that are Ready for Scale?

  1. 1. How Do I Deliver Robust Applications That Are Ready for Scale? Four Ways to Get Started Today
  2. 2. How well are you serving your customers and employees? People today have little patience for apps that aren’t performing as expected. To truly succeed, you need to continuously deliver and update resilient apps in time to meet the needs of your customers and users. And, if your app becomes a hit, it needs to scale flawlessly. Here are four secrets to delivering on the promise of your apps:
  3. 3. 1. Remember, performance trumps curb appeal. A great-looking app may attract customers, but it’s the app’s day-to-day performance that determines long-term value. Achieving this means looking at performance holistically – of both the app and your infrastructure.
  4. 4. When your infrastructure performs, your apps perform. 68% of users say they will abandon an app if it doesn’t load in 6 seconds or less. Gaining insight into exactly how your systems are running—alerted to problems so you can quickly resolve them—helps you deliver a better customer experience.

  5. 5. 2. Full-throttle development or bust. The window for getting something to market is now measured in weeks, or even days. Speed of deployment is everything. You must be able to roll out robust, resilient apps continuously, within the timelines customers expect. And you can’t afford to let any operational constraints and dependencies stall development cycles.
  6. 6. Early testing is essential for fast- cycle development. Testing earlier in the development cycle is crucial for rapid delivery of new apps. High application quality depends on managing the growing complexities and interdependencies among systems and services. The app is just the tip of a very large iceberg.
  7. 7. 3. Analyzing your performance can predict and prevent business disruptions. What’s worse—lost revenue or reduced productivity? If you’re experiencing failed transactions, you’re suffering from both. Applying workload analytics across the enterprise can help you anticipate the performance of business services, so you can provide high availability for all your critical apps.
  8. 8. Workload automation and predictive analytics keep things running smoothly. With a unified view of your workload, you can easily access both application and operational data. Predictive analytics can be used to support dynamic workload provisioning, optimization and management for responsive business services.
  9. 9. 4. Amplify productivity through self-service. IT service management isn’t what it used to be. Your team was adept at providing ready answers to users in a highly controlled environment. But now they have to understand the ins and outs of dozens—or even hundreds—of unique applications that they might have only first heard of weeks ago. Only 21% of users rank IT as being effective in issue resolution. Source: ApplicationEconomy Global Study, CA and Vanson Bourne, 2014.
  10. 10. You need to drive both productivity and user engagement. Empowering your business users to be more productive is possible when your approach to IT service management fosters self-sufficiency. But is there really a simple way for your users to engage with IT—and remain satisfied—throughout the entire service delivery and restoration process?
