Working with microservices and Kubernetes often means solving the same solved problems over and over, without having the time to focus on what really brings value to the business. Garden recently commissioned research to gather insights from software professionals to find out where time is being spent, what tasks often cause frustration, and how this time could be better spent. Some of what we learned reinforced my own experiences but there were some other surprising insights. And when we set out to quantify the impact of time spent on "solved problems" that respondents shared with us, the data was truly eye popping ...

The DevOps revolution of the past decade has been driven by an increasingly fast-moving world. Where once the release of new software and applications was an event that happened every few months, it's now a constant, ongoing process with new code rolled out continually. DevOps teams have embraced this challenge by breaking free of the traditional siloed approach, and owning more of the development cycle themselves, including quality testing, integration and deployment.

As we grew the team and evolved our processes, I questioned the status quo and evaluated processes from first principles. Here are some of the things I learned along the way ...

Teams have made great strides to support the shift toward digital-focused solutions and capabilities, but the clock is ticking for those companies that are lagging in their digital innovation efforts. In Kong Inc.'s second annual Digital Innovation Benchmark, 51% of the 400 IT leaders surveyed in the US and Europe believe that their organization can only survive up to three years before going out of business or being absorbed by a competitor if they are unable to keep up with digital innovation ...
