Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. announced its position as a leading vendor in GigaOm’s inaugural Radar for Cloud Network Security.
Harness announced the industry-wide Engineering Excellence Collective™, an engineering leadership community.
The Collective comprises 300 esteemed senior engineering leaders, CTOs, and MDs from leading global organizations, including Broadcom, CrowdStrike, Encora, NetApp, Palo Alto Networks, Pipe, Wells Fargo, Oracle, Xactly, OutSystems, Pure Storage Inc. and many more. The Collective represents a collaborative effort to drive innovation and advance industry-wide initiatives, the first of which is a comprehensive Engineering Excellence Maturity Model.
The Engineering Excellence Collective's aim is to foster an environment of knowledge exchange and best practice sharing among top engineering minds to stimulate industry progress. At the heart of this initiative is the group's first major initiative, the Engineering Excellence Maturity Model, a cutting-edge framework that outlines 11 crucial pillars essential for achieving engineering excellence in software development. These include:
Planning and Requirements Process
Discoverability and Documentation
Developer Environment Experience
Quality and Resilience Testing
Integrated Security and Governance
Metrics and Insights
Learning and Development
This comprehensive model provides a prescriptive guide to elevate engineering practices and drive excellence and developer experience within organizations. Each pillar encompasses a set of capabilities necessary to reach the full potential of engineering achievement. Unlike existing frameworks, the Engineering Excellence Collective doesn't replace established models like DORA or SPACE. Instead, it supplements them by offering specific guidance on capabilities and processes needed to enhance DORA metrics.
