The obvious result of this lack of foresight is the gathering of overwhelming technical debt.

Source – searchmicroservices.techtarget.com There has been a fundamental shift in the application of business process management systems over the last few years to where these platforms are now increasingly part of the toolkit that developers — and more often “citizen developers” — need to build modern applications as they apply BPM best practices.

Lack of Security Training Hinders DevOps Success

Source – baselinemag.com With large-scale cyber-attacks becoming more frequent, security is more critical than ever, especially in fast-paced DevOps environments.

At least, that would be the case but for one inconvenient truth: Serverless is powered by… servers. Even if one accepts that the cloud increasingly allows developers to focus on writing code and not bothering with how it’s run, the hardware that powers the cloud looks set to matter for a long, long time—something Google’s Kelsey Hightower humorously points out. In fact, in areas
