On reading this year's Accelerate State of DevOps Report 2019, it was easy to make a clear conclusion: the usability of tools affects productivity. This is perhaps not surprising in itself, but the report finds that tool usability, above all else, is a key indicator of performance ...

Speed of deployment affects your bottom line, making it one of the core DevOps metrics. Continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) are now established principles that are standard in almost every business. The huge advantages that come with incremental, ongoing changes and deployment via Kubernetes, microservices, and containers have been proven and embedded into every business practice. While DevOps tools and practices are standard almost everywhere, there's still one DevOps tool left to go ...

The concept of infusing security into the mindset and the processes of software delivery is often called "DevSecOps." Since developers, testers, and operations staff are all part of the same DevOps team, they must all take responsibility for their software's security, from design through development, and out into production. Here are some practical steps that teams can take to introduce security into their DevOps pipelines, making them DevSecOps pipelines ...

In the first blog of this series, I discussed what would it take to insert security into DevOps and arrived at the helpful mnemonic SECURIDY to capture the key requirements. As a continuation of that blog, I thought it would be valuable to take some of the popular technologies and measure them against this framework to see which are still well-suited for today's world of DevOps, as well as which fall short and why ...

With the speed of innovation ever on the rise, customers expect the latest, greatest features and updates at their fingertips. That means businesses have to ship and deliver more features and products than ever before, faster than before — making it harder for often-overburdened technical teams to keep up with the rapid pace of change as they innovate and execute. With developer resources in high demand, no-code, low-code solutions promise to clear up backlogs and spark innovation by building up a citizen developer workforce ...

Today, performance bugs and memory bugs are the least of the worries facing the developer community. Instead, a new crisis has surfaced: security bugs. Security bugs are so much more concerning than the other bugs because security bugs will get you "pwned!" ...

Cloud infrastructure has seen accelerating levels of automation over the past few years. While the new, unprecedented level of automation delivers benefits like speed and agility, it also introduces enormous risk.

DevOps will need to revisit security at it prepares to take advantage of all that quantum computing has to offer. Most security experts surmise that quantum crypto algorithms will eventually render RSA cryptography and ECC useless. Because of the security impact, particularly as it relates to the formidable crypto algorithms, my recommendation for DevOps is to prepare now ...
