How to Build Better Apps, Faster

first_img[ Close ] Software applications are essential for driving the success of today’s organizations. From retailers and banks to healthcare providers and government agencies, organizations depend on innovative apps to help deepen engagement with customers, enhance operational efficiencies, increase employee productivity and enable business continuity.Still, to realize the full benefits of software—now and in the future—organizations must modernize their apps. They need to release software to production faster—not every few months but hundreds of times per day. That’s how they can provide better customer experiences, address vulnerabilities and take full advantage of cloud investments.App modernization requires change. Organizations need to transform their infrastructure, moving from a traditional data center to a more flexible, scalable model that will enable them to match each app with the right resources. Organizations also need to shift the way they build, secure and manage apps: A DevSecOps model—which integrates security into the build process—can help maintain fast, continuous delivery of new software and capabilities while reducing risks.Finally, many organizations need to modernize their application architectures. Instead of building and managing inflexible monoliths, organizations should capitalize on containers, microservices and Kubernetes. With these technologies, teams gain greater agility for quickly pushing updates and introducing new features.VMware can help you accelerate delivery of modern apps and maximize their value for your organization. By adopting a cloud-native application development platform with the VMware Tanzu portfolio and VMware Tanzu Labs, you can continuously produce the innovative apps you need to propel your business forward.Extending the infrastructure into the cloud with KubernetesMost organizations recognize the value that cloud environments offer. And in many cases, they have incorporated multiple clouds into their IT operations. They have created private clouds on premises and tapped into public clouds to scale resources or take advantage of cloud-based apps.Too frequently, though, those cloud environments are disconnected. IT groups need ways to shift apps from one cloud to another without refactoring or rewriting software. Adopting modern app architectures such as microservices, containers and Kubernetes can help. These technologies allow you to free your apps from your infrastructure, so you can run them anywhere.VMware solutions enable your organization to easily integrate modern app architectures as part of your multi-cloud environment. VMware vSphere with Tanzu and VMware Cloud Foundation with Tanzu can help you unlock the value of Kubernetes in a standardized way that minimizes complexity. You can establish a unified operating model for virtual machines and containers within a private cloud—while making it easy to extend that operating model across clouds.Embracing DevSecOpsImplementing new technologies is essential for speeding the delivery of modern apps. But continuously delivering those apps also requires the right processes. In a recent global survey from Vanson Bourne, 79 percent of respondents agreed that without successfully modernizing app development processes, their organizations would not be able to deliver a best-in-class user experience.Your organization may have already brought together development and IT operations teams, committing to the DevOps approach. DevOps and continuous delivery practices can certainly help deliver higher-quality code to production faster and more frequently. You might also be using automation and container-centric technology to support those practices.Integrating security throughout the development and deployment cycle is the next logical step. Traditionally, app security was handled at the very end of the development process, in a distinct workflow that could slow delivery of apps to products. With a DevSecOps approach, you address security issues early on during the build process, enhancing efficiency and speeding app delivery.VMware Tanzu Advanced edition simplifies and secures the entire container development lifecycle, making it easier to embrace DevSecOps. With Tanzu Advanced, you can automatically build a stream of compliant containers, secure your software supply chain, and operationalize containers and clusters across clouds. Moreover, VMware Tanzu Labs can provide the expertise for easing the transition to DevSecOps.Modernizing your app architectureMaximizing the value of apps requires flexible, modern application architectures. You need ways to make changes and augment capabilities rapidly.Adopting microservices architectures can help your development teams build and iterate faster, releasing smaller pieces of apps at greater speed. The addition of new capabilities and incremental updates no longer require you to revamp an entire application. And making the best use of APIs—especially internal APIs—will enable you to deliver microservices at scale. APIs accelerate collaboration across development teams and lines of business.Enterprises that modernize their applications with microservices and APIs don’t release software once a month or quarter: They deliver software to production tens or even hundreds of times every day.But of course, modernizing existing apps or building new ones using modern architectures can be daunting. The VMware Tanzu portfolio can help. You can tap into turnkey microservices, APIs and data models. And you can access hundreds of cloud platform services from any cloud. VMware Tanzu Labs can guide the move to modern architectures and help you implement a modern software supply chain with repeatable processes.Driving apps and your business forwardMaking the most of your apps will likely require some change. To modernize existing software and build new cloud-native apps, you may need to rethink your infrastructure, processes and app architectures. The VMware Tanzu portfolio and VMware Tanzu Labs can help you transform the way you build, run and manage apps, so you can continuously deliver better software to production and maximize the benefits for your business. ▪ last_img read more

A Proclamation on American Red Cross Month, 2021

first_imgA Proclamation on American Red Cross Month, 2021 The White HouseThroughout our country’s history, the humanitarian spirit of the American people has shined as a beacon of hope in times of crisis. It is written in our DNA that when hardship strikes, we come together to ensure that no one faces it alone. It is in that spirit that we celebrate American Red Cross Month, a chance to honor all those selfless Americans who step up and lend a hand whenever and wherever people are in need.For 140 years, the American Red Cross has been synonymous with the prevention and alleviation of human suffering across the globe. Founded by Clara Barton in 1881, the organization’s mission lives on in the dedication of Red Cross workers — more than 90 percent of whom are volunteers — and the generosity of the American people in moments of crisis.We saw unmistakable evidence of that spirit through the challenges of this past year. In 2020, more than 70,000 people became new Red Cross volunteers and stepped up on behalf of those in need — as disaster shelter workers, health workers, blood donor ambassadors, and transportation specialists. And when our country faced a severe blood shortage, the American people rolled up their sleeves, with more than a half-million of our friends and neighbors donating blood with the Red Cross for the first time.In a year like no other, people made a lifesaving difference. As months of relentless hurricanes, wildfires, and other extreme weather events battered communities, families spent more nights in emergency lodging than in any other year over the past decade — thanks to the hard work and generosity of Red Cross volunteers and partners who provided more than 1.3 million people with overnight stays last year. When the pandemic strained emergency services, Red Cross workers adapted to help fulfill urgent needs. They responded to increased emergency calls from military families, aided hundreds of thousands of home fire survivors, supported international health and hygiene services, and safely provided health and safety courses to essential workers and others to help them manage the COVID-19 threat. In recent days, as harsh winter storms left many Americans without power and water across the South and Midwest, the Red Cross and its partners have worked to help people recover and restore access to safe water.This month, we renew our commitment to Clara Barton’s remarkable vision and join together, as one Nation, to recommit ourselves to a foundational American principle: the duty of care we owe to one another when times get tough. I urge all Americans to take part in that tradition through our own everyday acts of compassion — helping a neighbor, a stranger, or a community in need.NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America and Honorary Chairman of the American Red Cross, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 2021 as American Red Cross Month. I encourage all Americans to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities, and by supporting the work of service and relief organizations.IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fifth.
