Getting more done in less time. It doesn’t matter if that’s to do with adjustments with short time-to-market pressure, or with changing applications based on end user requirements or changes in the market: the IT department gets less and less time to make changes happen and are forced to be more flexible in their work to accomplish all that. And as if that ain’t everything yet, the availability of systems is more and more important too. Nowadays, when a complete application goes offline, that’s absolutely unacceptable. A Web-scale Architecture (WSA) enables an organization to build systems in an agile manner that guarantee a high level of availability and flexibility and that supports the continuous delivery method.
