In today's dynamic business environment, organizations want more from their information systems - more speed, more features, better integration, better reliability, better stability and more flexible infrastructure that can adapt quickly as business requirements change. While many recent technology innovations have helped IT groups meet these requirements, these innovations have also added to the complexity of managing a modern enterprise. As a result, developers, integrators, and operations staff spend much of their time managing issues of scale and complexity. They ensure that diverse components from multiple sources can work together, deploy large numbers of software instances across a distributed organization, facilitate data access across many systems, troubleshoot the performance of many different applications, and ensure high levels of system availability.
