Unleash Your True Product Value With Ecosystem Engineering

Ecosystem Engineering Thumbnail

Technology companies in the infrastructure space need to change the way they innovate, build, and deliver products. Escalating pressures to meet increasing customer demand for cloud-ready solutions and enhanced digital user experiences can overwhelm the best team, resulting in interoperability and compliance issues with existing host infrastructures.

A new version of the open-source development paradigm is gaining traction. It entails multi-disciplinary collaboration, experimentation and testing—not just to optimize software product performance, but to ensure interoperability and extensibility with the components of the target infrastructure ecosystem, including on-premises and hosted cloud platforms. This requires embarking on an open APIs and ecosystem integration journey that allows developers to assess, test and build solutions for interoperability with both existing and planned ecosystem components. With this shared knowledge and controlled access, developers on your team, in tandem with Xoriant, will be able to maximize your product’s value. 

Key Focus Areas

Workload Performance Testing

Workload Performance Testing

The goal of ecosystem engineering includes determining the essentials required for running your product alongside standard enterprise workloads like Microsoft Exchange, SAP, Oracle, and SQL Servers/open-source products. The goal is to achieve optimal performance on the host infrastructure while all concurrent workloads are in operation.

Interoperability and Integration

Interoperability and Integration

A key focus of ecosystem engineering is to ensure your product integrates, interoperates with components routinely connected to infrastructure products. For comprehensive ecosystem testing, it must also be certified to interoperate with the leading OS (RHEL, Windows, Linux/Unix) and virtualization platforms (VMWare, Hyper-V, OpenStack). In the past 15 years, we have certified 500,000 such combinations for several clients.

Hybrid/Public Cloud

Hybrid/Public Cloud

Most companies are using multiple cloud platforms for a wide variety of applications and services. This inserts a new level of complexity when developing infrastructure products to interoperate and perform optimally in hybrid cloud environments that include public cloud platforms. Ecosystem engineers will analyze, test and certify interoperability with every aspect of the target ecosystem, no matter how complex.
