What does DevOps do in 2018?

Source – infosecurity-magazine.com In 2018, we’re expecting DevOps to become the new norm for larger enterprise teams. This is because we’re likely to see developers on older, higher value systems implementing a more DevOps centric approach, having seen it work on projects that have traditionally been highly visible, but low value.

Creative ways to encourage the integration of DevOps processes

Source – theserverside.com Many organizations approach a DevOps transformation by starting with the tools and pushing them onto developers. Verizon has been experimenting with a different approach, though, that involves immersing developers, managers and business experts in a DevOps experience that they can bring back to their normal workflows. This helps shed some of the anxiety many developers might otherwise experience if they try to kick-start DevOps processes from their normal office environment. Verizon has already created over 1,000 teams that

Bringing DevOps agility to the edge with APIs

Source – insidebigdata.com Few question the value DevOps brings to organizations, particularly those that are forging ahead with digital transformations. Efficient build processes, quick release cycles and easy integration with partner features and functionality are exactly in line with the authentic experiences customers have come to expect. But the agile nature of DevOps is only beginning to be applied to IoT, enabling the computing of IoT device data closer to where it lives, at the edge, rather than in the cloud

5 ways to nurture culture change in IT

Source – enterprisersproject.com The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has been talking about moving to the cloud for several years. Multiple operating units across the department have launched individual initiatives, resulting in important progress but also in somewhat disconnected and redundant efforts. Each initiative must separately confront issues around strategy, procurement, security, network architecture, toolsets, and many other things. To help address this challenge, DHS is  developing a cloud services platform that will serve our entire organization. Our “Cloud Factory” project has clear

Combining AI, automation & cloud is key to improving workplace productivity

Source – computerweekly.com If you take productivity at its most basic – as a measure of how much output you get for how much you put in – then it follows that to increase it you must remove as much unnecessary strain as possible from the input cycle. Over the past decade, cloud computing has established itself as a key tool for helping companies streamline workflows. And, by allowing multiple users to work remotely on the same data at once, boost

While nothing is set in stone, it looks like 2018 is going to bring a lot of growth for DevOps, cloud technologies, and data science. However, signs are unclear for what will happen to artificial intelligence and

DevOps and cloud set up Amaysim for growth

Source – computerworld.com.au Since its launch in 2010, Amaysim has shaken-up the Australian mobile market, pioneering a bring-your-own handset model and undercutting its more established “dinosaur” rivals with cheap and low-commitment monthly plans. Yet despite its digital-native disruptor status, for the first four years of its existence the company ran on-premise servers and outsourced all of its IT and operations. Over the last three years that situation has been turned on its head. The company’s 20 servers running 100 virtual machines

Planning for Digital Transformation Success

Source – cio.com Many CIOs are still in a fog when it comes to cloud computing, yet the digital enterprise is the future and the direction most are going. Gartner estimates that less than one-third of enterprises have a cloud strategy set in place, but as Gigabit LTE and 5G approach — and wireless takes the networking reigns — most enterprises may need to cut the cord for specific applications. CIOs simply can’t take full advantage of the cloud with old-fashioned networking technology.

Why hybrid cloud will turn out to be a transition strategy

Source – networkworld.com As the cloud world gears up for this week’s big AWS re:Invent 2017 cloud computing conference in Las Vegas, it seems like a good time to take look at the future of hybrid cloud. Defined as a computing architecture that — in one way or another — incorporates elements of both the public cloud and private on-premise data centers, hybrid cloud is currently having a moment. As vendors such as Microsoft, Google, and Cisco scramble to offer specific hybrid-cloud solutions, many observers are calling
