Ensure full visibility and control of the applications hosted on pods spread across multiple customer locations. Ensure efficient management of pods and reduce overall management and operational costs.
Pod consists of an integrated multi-vendor hardware and software stack and often makes it difficult to manage holistically because of many disparate underlying tools. In most cases partner is required to do manual integrations and co-relate data from multiple sources resulting in project delays, higher operational costs, and lost revenues.
Partner deploys AppDimensions and gains immediate full visibility and control of operational health, configuration, security compliance aspects of the pod. Further, AppDimensions shows an active view of the pod and all its underlying components and their dependencies and assigns a governance score to the pod and the applications hosted on the pod. This quantitative score helps partner to easily identify issues and administer remediation operations as needed. Partner Benefits are:
End to end service availability to be 3 Nines (99.9%)
E-commerce company is concerned about the revenue impact due to service downtime from both unplanned outages as well as during the upgrades and rollbacks. IT and operations teams are asked to transform their application and associated technology infrastructure to a highly available one and deliver 3 nines service availability.
By Deploying AppDimensions platform, customer is able to discover and model the full digital stack. This includes clouds, virtual machines, networks, storage, applications, processes, transactions, end users, application infrastructure and enterprise integrations. Once modeled, they are able to identify dependencies, single point of failures and take corrective actions to improve the availability. By bringing the complete application stack under active governance, customer is able to achieve the following benefits:
Ensure baseline application performance and overall 25% increase in resources utilization of core business Lapps when migrated to new data center virtual infrastructure.
Insurance company is moving their core business applications to new data center and virtualizing bare metal deployments and wants to ensure high performance, availability and overall improved resource utilization on the new infrastructure.
Customer deploys the AppDimensions platform to ensure and modernize the infrastructure. Customer gained immediate visibility and control of the new infrastructure from multiple aspects like configuration, availability, performance and security to ensure the desired baseline application performance. Other customer benefits are:
Reduce feature delivery cycle times as well as rollbacks ratio by more than 25% by 3rd quarter.
E-commerce company that has recently adopted DevOps to implement continuous delivery process have no means of measuring the effectiveness and identify bottlenecks for improving their process.
By Deploying AppDimensions platform, customer is able to continuously monitor and measure the tools involved in the pipeline and introduce approval workflow into the process. This has resulted in
Total cloud costs overrun not exceeding 5% over allocated budget
Financial services company after migrating their core applications to multiple public clouds is concerned about the constant overrun of budgeted cloud costs even with no significant change in the application usage. Business team is also looking to have a granular view of costs incurred by different groups and applications at various stage of the application life cycle.
By Deploying AppDimensions platform and defining the cost control outcome, customer is able to identify and eliminate unused resources by different applications as well as eliminate the unplanned costs arising from non-standard deployments (configuration drifts) happening frequently. Other benefits that customer is able to achieve are :
Analysis and governance of critical customer data lineage across the enterprise to comply with the data privacy and regulation
Financial services company after migrating their core applications to multiple public clouds is concerned about the geographic location of the data and its access due to the impending EU policy that regulates how European companies should handle sensitive customer data.
By Deploying AppDimensions platform and defining the desired data governance outcomes, customer is able to discover and model their applications across various environments they are using. This includes clouds, virtual machines, networks, storage, applications, processes, transactions, end users, application infrastructure and enterprise integrations. The critical data lineage and access details are collected and monitored regularly for over 30 days. With this information, the team is able to get detailed view covering:
Ensure all critical applications are under DevOps and achieve continuous integration and delivery through automation by end of fiscal year.
E-commerce company turned to DevOps to achieve continuous delivery and release capability to improve the quality and speed of innovation. The team identified the core applications that need to implement this transformation project and defined the insights and metrics for the management to track and review the progress.
By Deploying AppDimensions platform, customer is able to discover and model the complete stack of the core applications and their dependencies. Then they have leveraged the integration capabilities and market place of the platform to quickly implement the required DevOps pipeline process and automation with active governance. By adopting this approach, the IT team is able to provide visibility to the management and delivered the following benefits:
