Agile and DevOps: How to rethink your software development culture

Source – zdnet.com DevOps techniques and Agile methodologies are regularly touted as the best ways to get IT projects completed quickly and efficiently, and for many are now preferred over the more tradition linear ‘Waterfall’ model of development. But new working methods require a significant cultural shift, so how can IT leaders adopt agility as an organisational mindset? Four IT leaders explain how they are turning the adoption of Agile and DevOps into a competitive advantage. 1. FIND THE PROJECTS THAT REQUIRE

More App Dev Models Increase DevOps Pressure

Source – devops.com A bifurcation in types of developers will become more pronounced in the years ahead as more application code moves to the network edge. As that transition continues occurring, the pressure on IT operations to be able to be able to flexibly manage different classes of applications by embracing DevOps processes will correspondingly increase. Mike Piech, vice president and general manager of middleware for Red Hat, said applications running on internet of things (IoT) devices and smartphones present developers

Serverless deployment lifts enterprise DevOps velocity

Source – techtarget.com Serverless deployment isn’t just for startups anymore. Mainstream companies have revved up DevOps velocity and slashed IT operations overhead with the addition of serverless technologies to underpin new apps. These companies, which base modern apps on AWS Lambda, OpenWhisk and Google Cloud Functions, say that serverless deployment abstracts the underlying cloud infrastructure completely from app developers, and lets DevOps teams focus on business logic and application code instead of infrastructure management. But while serverless deployment can pay off, so far,

Improve the rapid application development model for deployment readiness

Source – techtarget.com The rapid application development model aims for accurate deployments, as does DevOps as an IT methodology. It would seem the two concepts are natural partners, but that’s not always the case. Development and operations specialists have to work to unite RAD and DevOps, or risk devaluing both. RAD, which is a version of continuous development, creates an efficient pipeline for changes to travel from development into production. As software complexities increase, and the possible deployment platforms for a program multiply,

Five Essential Steps for Moving to DevOps

Source – tripwire.com Last week, I introduced the DevOps model for software development and discussed the advantages this type of approach has over more traditional methods. Its benefits, which include collaboration between operations and development teams as well as a better overall project creation for customers, explain why so many organizations are transitioning to DevOps. But they don’t illuminate how enterprises are making that move. Hence the purpose of this piece. Before firms leap towards change, they must strategize how to implement the transition and then measure

Google Chrome OS To Grow Beyond Cloud Computing With Android Integration

Source – dazeinfo.com Although Google Chrome OS is not the most popular OS of the likes of MAC and Windows, it is the first to narrow the gap between smartphone and computing environments. Among the host of announcements in the latest Google I/O show, a few developments related to Google’s web-based OS managed to create the ‘buzzword’ in the OS vocabulary. The Chrome OS has gotten closer to Android which will improve the transition between mobile and computing OS. The existing Android support

Why Amazon and Red Hat are the two biggest winners in enterprise cloud

Source – techrepublic.com In picking winners in the cloud wars, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the most obvious choice. As the resident hegemon, it’s hard to argue with a company that has accelerated its growth over the past two quarters on top of a run-rate that dwarfs that of all other vendors…combined. No, this doesn’t mean that Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) are doomed—each is carving out differentiation that should see them scoop up market share and billions in

Interview: CyberArk tells why DevOps must adopt ‘secure innovation by the numbers’

Source – securitybrief.com.au DevOps is becoming a major force across software development. For various reasons, security can be sidelined until far later in the development process – but there’s also a movement that is putting security rightly where it belongs – at the beginning. That’s the essence of DevSecOps, which maintains that security by design should be central to any strategy. Elizabeth Lawler is CyberArk’s vice president of DevOps Security. She was the former CEO of Conjur – a DevOps security startup

Linux-Friendly Arduino Simplifies IoT Development

Source – eetimes.com Arduino’s support for Linux IoT devices and single-board computers (SBCs) announced at the Embedded Linux Conference+Open IoT Summit NA in March cemented Arduino’s focus on cloud-connected IoT development, extending its reach into edge computing. This move was likely driven by multiple factors — increased complexity of IoT solutions and, secondarily, by more interest in Arduino boards running Linux. In a “blending” of development communities for the masses — Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone — Arduino’s support for Linux-based boards lowers

Red Hat Positions PaaS as Cure to Heal DevOps Divide

Source – devops.com Red Hat is making a strategic bet that IT organizations increasingly will rely on platform-as-a-service (PaaS) environments to make a broad range of distributed services available to developers, which would eliminate friction without enabling IT operations teams to maintain control. Paul Cormier, president of products and technologies for Red Hat, said IT organizations are realizing PaaS environments such as OpenShift have evolved into a platform through which a broad range of curated distributed services can be exposed to
