Docker Universal Control Plane 1.0 in our distributed-applications age

The real-time ability to manage applications in production is henceforth a game changer in our distributed-applications age where lapses and downtimes are not accepted. In this conext, Docker Universal Control Plane 1.0 means:
Agile self-service capabilities to deploy and manage applications,
Manage the simultaneous deployment of Dockerized applications on Docker hosts across multiple supported platforms, including bare metal, virtualized, private or public cloud,
Put IT operations in control of their own infrastructure,
On-premises, end-to-end commercial offering that delivers Containers as a Service (CaaS),
Secure and manageable content through a self-service portal on programmable infrastructure to developers,
Agility and control are both foundational capabilities,
A uniform provisioning workflow to create and allocate resources for compute, network, and storage in multiple public cloud providers, hybrid clouds or fully private data center environments,
Deploy and manage applications with…

Universal Control Plane to Deploy and Manage Containerized Applications in Production

Lock-in and loss of control are not tolerated in our connected world where developers and IT teams and Operations need agility, security, flexibility and portability to manage applications in production anywhere and anytime. 
Docker, as an open platform is at the core of stakes nowadays when it comes to build, ship and run distributed applications.
Henceforth with the release of Docker Universal Control Plane 1.0, an on-premises solution for deploying and managing Dockerized distributed applications in production on any infrastructure, developers have comprehensive operational control without compromising developer agility and portability.

Open infrastructure, software and middleware to address emerging data center workloads and challenges.

Alongside data center architectures and technologies such as OpenStack, Docker, and Spark; emerging applications such as machine learning, network functions virtualization (NFV), genomics, Cognitive Computing, high performance computing (HPC) and big data analytics are henceforth indispensable in our data-driven age when it comes to streamline our end-to-end digital transformation.
Heterogeneous workloads have become increasingly prevalent; therefore data centers are turning to application accelerators to keep up with the demands for throughput and latency at low power. 
Based on these realities, at, we also believe that, open approach to data center infrastructure is core to enabling workload acceleration across the industry.
So, salutes the multi-year strategic collaboration between IBM and Xilinx to enable higher performance and energy-efficient data center applications through Xilinx FPGA-enabled workload acceleration on IBM POWER-based systems.

The purchase and management of computing and software capabilities across hybrid cloud environments.

Exciting to observe that increasing number of organizations and institution are turning to cloud technologies when it comes to streamlined their IT experiences, increase productivity, agility ad performance. 
Cloud technologies and services are saturating, so henceforth organizations need the real-time capabilities to easily plan, buy and manage software and computing services from multiple suppliers across hybrid clouds. 
IT managers, authorized employees should be able to review and purchase compute and software services from different suppliers, as well as compare capabilities and pricing, all through a single, central console. 
Gravitant can provide an interesting approach to add choice and simplicity to how enterprises can manage their environments. 
IBM plans to integrate the Gravitant capabilities into the IBM Global Technology Services unit. salutes this momentum that aims to help enterprises manage their expanding private and public cloud environments.

The super digital era and Digital Transformation recalls that, with the application, the growing ingestion and streamlined innovations around Cloud, Big Data, Mobility, and Social, and the increasing maturation of innovation accelerators including: 3D Printing, Robotics, Cognitive computing and systems, IOT, Augmented/Virtual Reality, Next-generation Security and others, the world is entering a super digital era and Digital Transformation .

Actionable insights and data, and Best Practices in Monetizing the Global Digital Games Market

The digital game industry is booming in a globally fragmented payment industry, with a mobile like one of the key drivers.
Opportunities in this space are unmatched with Asia as the largest games market that earns almost half of the global games revenue.
At, we also believe that, games organizations need a streamlined framework to innovate their online monetization and payment strategies as pay-to-play models decline and free-to-play mobile game use increases globally.
On this momentum, recalls that, help organizations be successful in this rapidly evolving industry also means: Understand that, the most lucrative games are becoming “services,” which may be downloaded for free, but are financed through steady digital transactions. Asia dominates,Understand that, ewallets and credit/debit cards accounted for more than half of worldwide digital game payments in 2014, alternative payment types are making headway in many develo…
