Developers today are faced with the hard reality that modernizing systems is more than simply moving technology to a new location. Rather, they are expected to be intimately familiar with a host of new-generation technologies while simultaneously managing existing legacy systems as they migrate to an infrastructure that is more responsive, predictive, and scalable. Looking ahead to 2021, let's review the trends surrounding the most challenging, yet promising, topics in infrastructure and operations: Kubernetes, site reliability engineering, security, and more ...

Leading large Transformation efforts — that involve the creation of a Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery Pipeline and practice — require knowledge of not only DevOps technology but how to operationalize it and scale it. Although two thirds of companies are undergoing transformation, 70% are still failing, equating to billions in losses. Although, these losses are attributed to communication breakdown, there are more factors that contribute to failures that should not be overlooked ...

For many years I have been touting the legitimacy, and even advantages, of "Virtual Agility" only to be stonewalled by the dogmatic "co-locationists" in the Agile community. Nothing is as effective as having everyone in the same room. I get it ...

Kubernetes is here, and its use is growing. Nonetheless, while most (if not all) tech-influenced organizations might be talking about Kubernetes, only about a third are actually doing it. This blog outlines who those organizations are, how they are using Kubernetes, why they are using it, and what challenges they foresee from its application in the next two years ...

We're hearing a lot about Kubernetes right now, but just how much of that attention is merited? We wanted to see if Kubernetes was being widely adopted, if so by whom, and how those using it were applying the technology to boost their businesses and systems. So we conducted a survey, to explore and unpack these questions and find out the state of Kubernetes in the enterprise today ...

Remote work has been a part of the developer community for years, but when COVID struck, the world went home for the long haul. Six months later? We're doing better than expected. A lot better. In fact, my team is well-positioned to continue remote work for as long as this pandemic demands. And for me? I've become a stronger leader because of it ...

Think of the DevSecOps (Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery or CI/CD) pipeline as the highway. Think of containers as a Tesla. A logical person would never dream of having a concrete mixer work on their new Tesla. Nor would they ask their Tesla mechanic to lay the foundation for the road in front of their home. So why do some believe that Site Reliability Engineering can solve all the diverse set of challenges for DevSecOps? ...

The purpose of this blog series is to debunk some of the current myths created by marketing hype, lack of understanding of containers, and lack of understanding of how businesses function across DevSecOps to enable overcoming some of the common challenges that are causing failure ...

Complexity kills innovation, there, I've said it. Back in the days of Waterfall methodologies, processes would be bogged down in over-specified requirements and exhausting test regimes. No wonder software development gurus looked to return to the source (sic) and adopt the JFDI approach that remains prevalent today. Trouble is, complexity never went away: it just moved along the pipeline ...

With superior customer experiences becoming arguably the most critical deliverable for a software development company, the traditional way of development-testing-delivery in the value chain needed a change. The result was in the form of enabling Agile and DevOps testing where development and testing are not separate silo-driven processes ...

In the modern software delivery landscape, success comes to those businesses that can keep up with an aggressive release schedule and respond to consumer feedback by implementing new features and fixing issues in a matter of days. The quicker the team can push new code into production, the sooner it can start bringing value. On the other hand, teams can't afford to compromise on quality — updates that make it harder to use the solution leave users frustrated and push them into the arms of competitors ...

There is a story that must be told since it uncovers an injustice visited upon a piece of IT equipment called a mainframe computer. These, like many such situations displaying bigotry and ignorance, are put forward by people who do not understand the butt of their criticism ...

Before releasing a software application to the end customers, it must be measured against parameters like robustness, scalability, speed, responsiveness, interoperability, throughput, and stability under different load conditions. To ensure the fulfillment of these requirements, the application should undergo performance testing under reasonable load conditions ...

At its heart, cybersecurity is about either identifying, or mitigating weaknesses — a raft of vulnerability management products already exist that can scan infrastructure, network connections, software stacks, and indeed, applications and code, and can potentially recommend fixes, or even apply instrumentation and patches. Note however, that use of these tools doesn't deliver DevSecOps ...
