Today's choice of Agile methodologies is far greater than just the original XP (Extreme Programming) and Scrum, both introduced over two decades ago. Plus, there is a raft of hybrid Agile approaches emerging, in response to organizations needing large-scale Agile, to support compliance and coexist with more traditional methodologies ...

Few things will kill the buzz of a productive DevOps partnership like the tension of looming deadlines that might not be met. How to stay on time and on budget? It helps to have the collaborative approach that is integral to any effective DevOps project. Both the "Dev" people (product developers and others) and the "Ops" people (system engineers and others) will need planning and communication strategies to help them prioritize their speed-to-market goals ...

Most software isn't fully tested, and the decision of what to test is essentially based on developers' best guesses about what is critical functionality. During a SCRUM sprint, or an iteration in other processes, it's difficult to determine what to test, because, of course, "test everything" isn't an option. Since timelines are short, only parts of the software that were updated by the latest functionality can be tested, but exactly what code is impacted is usually unknown ...

Software testing is still a bottleneck, even after the implementation of modern development processes like Agile, DevOps, and Continuous Integration/Deployment. In some cases, software teams aren't testing nearly enough and have to deal with bugs and security vulnerabilities at the later stages of the development cycle, which creates a false assumption that these new processes can't deliver on their promise. One solution to certain classes of issues is shift right testing, which relies on monitoring the application in a production environment, but it requires a rock solid infrastructure to roll back new changes if a critical defect arises ...

The fast-moving nature of container and Kubernetes adoption is having a ripple effect throughout organizations. Not only is the adoption of cloud native technologies fueling digital transformation — especially in the areas of operations and service delivery — it's also forcing organizations to rethink how they structure their business units to accommodate the demands of rapid iteration, agile development, and increasingly critical security standards ...

Business demands agility — ever-increasing speed to deliver new functionality to the customers and to stay ahead of competitors. DevOps and agile development deliver on this business goal and are being widely adopted across industries. It's also well established that we need to find how to insert security into DevOps to ensure that security does not get left behind. Which begs the question — why hasn't this happened, why haven't we figured out how to insert security into DevOps ...

Want to get to DevSecOps? Start by developing mature DevOps practices. Security pros report an established DevOps team is three times more likely to find bugs before code is merged and 90% more likely to test between 91% and 100% of code than early-stage efforts ...

For most organizations, the ongoing management and deployment of database changes are by far the slowest and riskiest part of the application release process. Why? Most of these changes are performed manually by database administrators (DBAs), who spend countless hours to create, review, rework, and deploy database changes in support of rapid application delivery. This creates a huge bottleneck for the overall release process, as database changes happen every day ...

The relationship between marketers and developers is one of the most essential for business success. Together these two teams define and control the customer experience. However, anyone that's ever worked in an office knows that miscommunication and misunderstandings are inevitable in this kind of working relationship. Twilio SendGrid recently dug into the inner workings of this vital partnership and what we found highlights how it is evolving with digitization, how this dynamic impacts business outcomes and how the right technology can strengthen the developer-marketer bond ...

Wherever you are in the world, data privacy is now a major regulatory and consumer concern. The introduction of the GDPR in 2018 ushered in tough new rules for anyone dealing with the personal data of European Union citizens, while a string of cases involving either hacking or the improper use of data has led to consumers everywhere becoming more aware of how their information is used and protected ...

The way that we develop and deliver software has changed dramatically in the past 5 years — but the metrics we use to measure quality remain largely the same. Despite seismic shifts in business expectations, development methodologies, system architectures, and team structures, most organizations still rely on quality metrics that were designed for a much different era. Every other aspect of application delivery has been scrutinized and optimized as we transform our processes for DevOps. Why not put quality metrics under the microscope as well? ...

Security teams must prepare for the certainty that, eventually, something malicious will gain a foothold in the network. In response, security teams are refocusing their work on the need to harden internal network security. And the methodology they're turning to is zero trust ...
