When execs talk with me about their desire to bring their teams back into the office in this new, post-pandemic world, the main argument I hear centers around the concept of "culture." An amorphous feeling that a return to the office is essential for teams to remain effective. "But," I ask, "weren't your teams effective during the pandemic when we all had no choice but to stay home?" ...

Can DevOps and low code work hand in hand? Philosophically, the two are at odds; DevOps inherently insinuates that code will be involved, while low code/no code insinuates the opposite.

DevOps is not a tool in itself. You can't download it. It is made up of tools and methods and a whole way of working — the DevOps culture. At its core, DevOps is about creating an open, regular flow between operations and development — and therefore clear communication and collaboration is essential. With demand increasing to build innovative systems to attract and retain customers, a cohesive DevOps culture can be the differentiator that puts you at the forefront of commercial growth ...

DevOps is considered green when it comes to security practices. Developers are generally focused on the performance and deployment of solutions, rather than their protection. As cloud workload security (CWS) advances from deployment, to mainstream adoption, to run-time optimization, there are certain steps that DevOps teams need to implement to ensure they're properly protecting their projects. Below, find three critical steps for DevOps teams to improve their CWS protections for application deployment and run-time ...

While the benefits of cloud-native development are clear, we recently released a report revealing that the majority of companies are well behind the curve and have not yet pursued this technology. Based on a survey of 500+ IT leaders and developers, our report found stark contrasts between expectations and readiness for the use of cloud-native development with more than half of respondents (53%) stating they don't know much about it ...

Leading organizations around the world are adopting cloud native technologies to build next- generation products and achieve the agility that they need to stay ahead of their competition. Although cloud native and Kubernetes are very disruptive technologies, there is another technology that is probably the most disruptive technology of our generation — artificial intelligence (AI) and its subset, machine learning (ML) ...
