Whether you're at the beginning or in the midst of trying to bring about change, one of the most significant challenges I've seen for agile teams is dealing with a product owner who doesn't fill all the roles that a product owner is expected to play.

DevOps promotes and facilitates the coordination between the software developers who create apps and the operations personnel who deploy them, but as the newly released Evans Data survey DevOps 2019 shows the two groups often have very different ideas ...

In the coming weeks, EMA will be gathering data on what we believe is a unique research topic — approaching DevOps initiatives from the perspectives of all key constituents. We're doing this to try to break through some of the "false walls" created by more niche, market-defined insights, or some of our industry hyperbole. Here are some of the directions we're pursuing ...

It is refreshing to see that analysts, bloggers and many of the vendors are finally catching up to what the Digital Transformation Strategists have known for nearly a decade — Cloud is not always cheaper. In my books, I touch upon the 5 Phases and identifying the total costs that will impact an application workload. When you are looking to migrate to Cloud it is important to view it from a business — not just a technologist — perspective. When you evaluate the various tools, ask yourself if they do the same ...

To better align business and IT objectives, enterprise organizations should focus on the core "problems" that individual business units face today in driving out real consumer value. Until the roadblocks and inhibitors — and, ultimately, the resultant technical debt — are removed from the equation, large enterprise organizations will continue struggling to succeed ...

Technical debt is what results when legacy platforms or highly integrated and dependent systems and processes inhibit large enterprise organizations from meeting the needs of internal business stakeholders. In many cases, the core objectives that drive real, monetizable business value are not aligned to the esoteric IT goals of "automation" and "Agile development." This creates a fundamental disconnect between business and IT ...

Organizations with established DevSecOps programs and practices greatly outperform their peers in how quickly they address flaws. The most active DevSecOps programs fix flaws more than 11.5 times faster than the typical organization, due to ongoing security checks during continuous delivery of software builds, largely the result of increased code scanning, according the latest State of Software Security (SOSS) report from CA Veracode ..

This is the third in a series of three blogs directed at recent EMA research on the digital war room. In this blog, we'll look at three areas that have emerged in a spotlight in and of themselves — as signs of changing times — let alone as they may impact digital war room decision making. They are the growing focus on development and agile/DevOps; the impacts of cloud; and the growing need for security and operations (SecOps) to team more effectively ...

For a few years now, it has seemed like agile developers and DevOps teams haven't been giving testing its proper due. One could almost picture them thinking, "So what if there's a bug, design flaw or performance issue. We'll fix it in the new version next week." Of course, this line of thinking has turned out to be a big mistake ...

The digital war room — physical, virtual or hybrid — is not in retreat but in fact is growing in scope to include greater participation from development and security. It's also becoming more proactive, with on average more than 30% of "major incidents" before they impacted business service performance. In this blog I'm providing a few additional highlights from the insights we got on digital war room organization and processes ...

EMA has just completed research titled, Unifying IT for Digital War Room Performance. The research was partly inspired by current debates about the role of the "War Room" and how it is or is not evolving. Some seem lost in fantasy — "the war room will absolutely disappear." Whereas for others, basic incident handling is just emerging and having a more defined and effective war room team remains a hope for the distant future ...
