Business demand for new applications and new functionality is growing rapidly, driving the adoption of modern application frameworks and architectures developed for the cloud. Yet, the great majority of applications continue to be built using existing methodologies and processes. IT must find a way to exploit the promise of cloud computing for existing types of applications while beginning the transition to the next generation of architectures and frameworks.

Join us to learn how VMware is simplifying, automating and standardizing the process of building, deploying and managing applications on hybrid cloud environments. We’ll demonstrate how to make your applications cloud ready while gaining application framework and architecture freedom of choice. You’ll learn how our “Active Application Management” approach can accelerate time to value by abstracting application management from that of the supporting infrastructure while horizontally integrating management across deployment, monitoring and change.
In this workshop we will cover how to:

• Build language-agnostic “application blueprints” (visual deployment topologies)
• Create complex application topologies faster, easier and without errors.
• Leverage current investments and best practices for installing and configuring middleware components
• Focus on the business view of application performance—rather than infrastructure utilization
• Simplify the identification and remediation of performance problems down to the code level
• Deliver comprehensive, closed-loop application performance monitoring/remediation
