IT leaders need to be able to manage application development at scale using a factory metaphor that requires lots of instrumentation. The challenge is that, in the case of applications, the actual products being manufactured consist of as much art and craft as they do science. Optimizing the application release cycle requires adding a layer of software abstraction above and around the application development process that serves to make the overall process more efficient without adding more friction ...

The concept of intent-based security is a new way of looking at applications, specifically those in a containerized environment, down to the application level and adding in extra security. It uses the power of the developer in order to produce a more predictable and secure environment that can be enforced. When it comes to DevOps and containers, the unique nature of the process and technology allows the intent-based security model to capitalize on three pillars ...

The task of managing many ongoing technology projects, coupled with the need to continuously amend and improve systems for meeting reporting requirements, sometimes serves as an obstacle for enterprises in implementing Continuous Delivery practices for the database. Yet, enterprises taking advantage of modern, effective DevOps for Database solutions find that it's possible to implement the same Continuous Delivery best practices, which prove valuable in application development, for the database, enabling true database automation that actually mitigates the risk of human error while simultaneously speeding development cycles. The end result is less downtime, fewer errors, and a reduction in development costs ...
