Security in DevOps Is Lagging Despite Advantages and Opportunities

Source – bwcio.businessworld.in Synopsys Inc. has released new data that highlights the opportunities and challenges of DevSecOps, an emerging paradigm in which DevOps teams incorporate application security into their continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) workflows. The 451 Research report commissioned by Synopsys, DevSecOps Realities and Opportunities, analyses survey results from 350 enterprise decision-makers at large enterprises across a variety of industries. The study found that only half of CI/CD workflows include application security testing elements despite respondents citing awareness

Why software resilience should be the real goal of DevOps

Source – techtarget.com Years ago, I worked for an organization that prided itself on its internal controls for software. Using a work order, developers had to get every box checked and then outline the steps to move the code to production. If there was a problem, systems would be down, and any “fix” would require a similar rigorous — and documented — process. That single-minded focus on reliability meant we had to batch changes together into projects and roll out less often. It became a

Overcoming DevOps Implementation Challenges

Source – tripwire.com Most organizations have already adopted or are moving towards adopting a DevOps model into their work culture for improved productivity and workflow. In simple terms, DevOps is an application delivery methodology that encourages collaboration and communication between the developers and operations teams across all phases of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). The collaboration between the development and operations teams, working as a cohesive unit for a common goal, ensures the creation of a faster, reliable and efficient delivery system. Major Challenges

Tips on implementing DevOps models

Source – devopsonline.co.uk DevOps helps communication and collaboration between developer and operation teams, across all of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC). Many organisations have adopted, or are moving, towards adopting DevOps processes for a healthier work culture with improved workflows and productivity. Despite this, there are several issues which regularly come up when implementing DevOps models, which must be dealt with promptly and efficiently. This can include: Scaling up DevOps is known to encounter issues while scaling up implementation, typically

The Two Key Ways to Monitor DevOps Projects

Source – itbusinessedge.com One of the chief challenges in monitoring DevOps projects is the fact that the resulting application or service is usually pushed out to the cloud or a mobile platform. In many cases, this involves third-party infrastructure and/or monitoring solutions, which can leave the enterprise blind to key performance data. To accommodate this, DevOps teams will need to incorporate two practices that aim to gauge performance across distributed architectures: synthetic monitoring and real user monitoring (RUM). The difference lies in the

DevSecOps: How to get your team on board

Source – enterprisersproject.com A funny thing happened as IT embraced DevOps and broke down longstanding silos between teams: Many organizations created new silos in their place, around security. “We found through our research that DevOps and security teams are already operating in silos, and the rush to the cloud is exacerbating this disconnect,” says Pete Cheslock, senior director at Threat Stack. “Teams are increasingly isolated, and they’re facing a steep learning curve.” This is why you’re increasingly hearing the term DevSecOps. You’re forgiven if you’re skeptical

How blockchains can help build stronger software

Source – idgconnect.com Blockchains can make the biggest impact in deeply collaborative environments. That is why supply chains stand to benefit from blockchains, composed as they are of diverse people, organizations, and stakeholders. Given the proliferation of software and application development globally, a DevOps-based software supply chain ecosystem experiences very similar challenges to traditional “offline” supply chains comprised of physical goods. Enterprises are embracing open source systems like never before – but, they are failing to manage them effectively[1] – which can

Why spending on cloud computing is increasing in SA

Source – fin24.com Spending on cloud computing has sharply increased in Africa and is set to rise further. The Cloud Africa 2018 report, a research project conducted by Arthur Goldstuck’s World Wide Worx for F5 Networks, came to this conclusion after researching the innovation in three of the continent’s major economies – South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria. Cloud computing is when a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data is used instead of a
