F5 Application Ready Network for Enterprise Service-Oriented Architecture
CIOs, application owners, and application architects are facing an ever-increasing amount of new requirements to extend their services to be available everywhere around the world. Meanwhile, they still need to consolidate data centers and business applications in order to lower costs, address new compliance rules (e.g., Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA), and much more. Solutions need to support the extended enterprise, which no longer ends at the doorstep of a headquarters data center or other traditional organizational boundaries. Company employees, business partners, and customers are all end users and demand secure and responsive access to business applications, regardless of location.
