There are two important considerations when adding security to an existing DevOps pipeline. The first is security in code, which means, when code is developed, the security of the code itself should be continuously reviewed and assessed. The second is security as code, in other words, security requirements need to be part of the process from the beginning. Let's look at both of these concepts in a bit more detail ...

With the right solutions, teams can move themselves out of the shadows of error resolution and into the light of innovation. Observability data, drawn from their systems and imbued with context from AI, lets teams automate the issues holding them back. Contextualized data and insights also give them the language to speak to the incremental, product-led approach and the direction to drive key innovations in customer experience improvement. Communicating value becomes a much easier proposition for DevOps practitioners — and they can take their seat at the company table as contributors to value ...

The 20% time has an almost mythical status. Popularized by Google, but with its roots actually stretching back to the 1940s, the basic concept is that 20 percent of an employee's paid time is dedicated to pursuing personal projects. The idea is that it creates a hotbed of innovation which might feed into company work and improve skills. In software development terms, the products that have their foundations in 20 percent are legendary ...

We all wish we could build, deploy, and run our applications without the stress of security concerns. However, the reality is that most of us will run into serious security or compliance issues at one time or another. When that happens, an organization is likely to experience the frustration of delayed application deployments and stifled agility. Containers and Kubernetes promise faster development cycles, quicker bug fixes, and increased velocity, but when security is an afterthought, organizations risk the very gains that containerization promises, particularly agility ...

So, you've finally decided to use Kubernetes for stateful applications? Congrats! (And good luck.) But first, let's put the Champagne back on the ice and talk about data — the chain that binds your stateful architecture to a single location. If you're only using a single region, you're in luck, but what happens when the same application needs to run on multiple regions? Or, even worse, multiple clouds? ...

When software solutions are subjected to high user traffic, they should be able to deliver the expected outcomes without facing issues like latency, glitches, or downtime. This is a critical requirement for organizations as the modern customers trust applications that are fast, usable, safe, and high-performing, especially during high-traffic situations. The software solutions shoul be able to handle any surge in data, traffic, and transactions. And to achieve the same, performance testing of the software solutions should be conducted in the SDLC ...

What does a high-performing engineering team really look like? It can be hard to know, but diving into the effectiveness of your delivery capabilities can tell you quite a bit. Do deploys require a lot of cross-team coordination? When production breaks, is it a long time before you can get it back up and running? Are you getting feedback and results from your changes quickly? Your team's ability to deliver is a competitive advantage, and industry benchmarks are the only way to get a clear understanding of how your DevOps practices measure up ...
