In this week’s real-time analytics news: BMC intros mainframe DevOps features for the autonomous digital enterprise, and more.
Keeping pace with news and developments in the real-time analytics market can be a daunting task. We want to help by providing a summary of some of the items our staff came across each week. Here are some of the news items from this week:
BMC announced several new innovations and integrations for the Autonomous Digital Enterprise. The announcements fall within the BMC Automated Mainframe Intelligence (BMC AMI) and BMC Compuware portfolios designed to improve threat detection and response and expand access to mainstream DevOps tools to modernize mainframe applications and increase developer productivity. These updates enable users to:
- Uncover weaknesses and malicious activity before a compromise occurs with automated detection and response to suspicious or unusual, privileged user activity.
- Accelerate development team output with new integrations that simplify continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipelines, as well as orchestrate automated deployments across multiple platforms.
- Increase mainframe performance and resilience with a solution that diagnoses potential Java Virtual Machine (JVM) performance issues, a valued capability given the increase in Java applications running on mainframes.
- Improve the mainframe developer and systems programmer experience with a contribution to the Open Mainframe Project’s Zowe framework.
AT&T and Google Cloud are announcing new solutions across AT&T’s 5G and Google Cloud’s edge computing portfolio, including AT&T’s on-premises Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) solution, as well as AT&T Network Edge capabilities through LTE, 5G, and wireline. AT&T Multi-access Edge Compute (MEC) with Google Cloud combines AT&T’s existing 5G and MEC offering with core Google Cloud capabilities, including Kubernetes, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), data analytics, and a robust edge ISV ecosystem. AT&T Network Edge (ANE) with Google Cloud will enable enterprises to deploy applications at Google edge points of presence (POPs) AT&T’s 5G and fiber networks. In this low-latency compute and storage environment, businesses can deliver faster, more seamless enterprise and customer experiences. AT&T and Google Cloud are focusing on a multi-year strategy to bring the solution to 15+ zones across major cities.
IBM announced CodeFlare, an open-source framework for simplifying the integration and efficient scaling of big data and AI workflows onto the hybrid cloud. CodeFlare is built on top of Ray, an emerging open-source distributed computing framework for machine learning applications. CodeFlare extends the capabilities of Ray by adding specific elements to make scaling workflows easier. Additionally, CodeFlare simplifies the acceleration of complex multi-step analytics and machine learning pipelines on the hybrid multi-cloud.
