Testing is critical for long-term success, however, many enterprise teams are grappling with the timing of their testing. Today, the traditional software development lifecycle begins with requirements, goes to design, then coding, and ends with testing. The problem with conducting testing at the end is that much of the work is already complete, causing last minute surprises, costly defects, and delays in deploying the final product or update ...

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. So, how can LC/NC and DevOps work together in harmony if they are intrinsically opposed to one another? Can they really be friends, or are they resigned to being foes? ...

The biggest challenge in today's environment is blending security into the development process. All companies have different software development life cycles (SDLC), infrastructure, repositories, availability, deployment areas (think cloud, on-premise, hybrid), accesses, etc.The balance of slowly introducing security, ideally with the biggest impact at the smallest cost (this could be financial or time and effort), into an already established life cycle is key ...

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 ...

There's one key finding we'd like to explore further for the sake of this post, and that is that companies at a high level of DevOps evolution continue to compensate their employees at the highest level, with practitioner salaries doubling and manager salaries nearly tripling from 2020 to 2021. Let's dig in ...
