NaviSite unveiled the next-generation of dynamic application infrastructure platform, AppStructure. AppStructure integrates three of the most desired information technologies of the decade -- Virtualization, Social Networking and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) -- into a comprehensive and highly adaptive solution that finally makes it possible for enterprises to easily adapt their technology environment to meet changing business needs.
AppStructure is designed to eliminate the boundaries between infrastructure, applications and services so that businesses can scale to meet time-sensitive demands, deliver software to end-users, create real-time integration with customers and partners, to provide meaningful alignment between cost and performance. AppStructure is useful for enterprises of all sizes, but especially to those organizations that view IT as a strategic function, but lack the resources to harness the combined power of this platform on their own.
"The emergence of utility computing platform, developments in virtualization technologies, acceptance of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model, proliferation of Enterprise Community portal applications and the pressure to integrate various disparate applications within and outside enterprises are some of the key technology trends we've been tracking for some time," said Denis Martin, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, NaviSite. "With a product portfolio of managed services and application solutions like no other in the industry, NaviSite is in an extraordinary position to offer AppStructure as an innovative solution -- uniting three leading technologies that deliver new functionality, create tighter integration, and automate workflows, while significantly improving business performance."
"CIOs have been searching for agile approaches to applications and IT architectures for years," said John R. Rymer and Connie Moore, co-authors of the "Dynamic Business Applications Imperative" for Forrester Research. "So why now? Because the perfect storm of unmet business requirements, process automation experience, IW and Social Computing innovations and growing adoption of SOA, BPM, Business Intelligence (BI) and business rules finally provide the means."
With deep experience in virtualization technology, NaviSite's AppStructure platform is ideal for organizations with seasonal computing fluctuations, or startups with unanticipated growth requirements. NaviSite's AppStructure virtualizes computing resources including servers, storage and networking. The solution scales up and down, providing greater alignment between revenue and cost, and it can be deployed faster than a dedicated server environment. NaviSite's AppStructure increases business productivity with a flexible solution that can evolve to meet customers' changing requirements within each technology tier whether those changes occur at the infrastructure, application or services level and delivers it within a single interface. Organizations benefit from having a unified, end-to-end integration of their operations with real-time interface across the enterprise.
