Why DevOps development depends on continuous testing

Source – techtarget.com To reap the full benefits of DevOps — quicker releases of high-quality software — successful organizations know they must introduce continuous testing throughout their software delivery process. The test phase cannot exist as an independent step at the end of a development cycle. Continuous integration and continuous delivery often spur this realization — these practices serve as the foundation for a successful DevOps approach. What IT leaders and their teams often don’t realize, however, is that the key to the proper

Making DevOps a Reality – Bringing in Security: Top 4 Topics

Source – devops.com I caught up with Maria Loughlin, vice president of engineering at CA Veracode; Chris Eng, vice president of research at CA Veracode;  and Alan Shimel, CEO of DevOps.com, to talk more about their recent panel webinar on bringing in security to make DevOps a reality. It was enlightening to hear their perspectives on how companies can build security into its culture so that it permeates the development process. Many enterprises have realized that with the continuing popularity of DevOps

Continuous Delivery is Not Continuous Deployment

Source – devops.com Every once in a while, it is worth revisiting a topic that flies under most people’s radar. The differences between continuous delivery and continuous deployment is one of those topics. While those steeped in DevOps are well-aware that software can be delivered daily (or even more frequently), deployment is less frequent, and more dependent upon both development and marketing cycles. Most CI/CD tools can and do crank out “deployable” apps on a daily basis, or even each time

Why Isn’t Secure DevOps Being Practiced?

Source – securityintelligence.com New research reveals that consistent practice of secure development and operations (DevOps) remains a challenge for organizations across industries. Only half of DevOps teams integrate application security testing elements in continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) workflows — despite widespread awareness of the advantages — according to a May 2018 report, Examining DevSecOps Realities and Opportunities, from Synopsys and 451 Research. The report surveyed 350 leaders at large enterprises and revealed insight into the state of secure DevOps and perceived

Does Microsoft’s message to DevOps pros oversimplify?

Source – techtarget.com Competitors such as IBM, CA and others also provide comprehensive DevOps tooling to help enterprise shops adopt DevOps to improve productivity of their developers, build products faster and enhance the quality of the software they deliver. But Microsoft is fresh in my mind because I attended the company’s Build 2018 developer conference recently in Seattle. Rub some DevOps on it It’s also fresh because I got some grief when I paid homage to one of Microsoft’s emerging star speaker’s use of the slogan “rub

Not sure how to start with DevOps? Here’s one option

Source – techtarget.com The answer — call in consultants — might seem obvious and, perhaps, insufficient. But the team at Sodo, or Ship On Day One, isn’t your average crew of talking heads. Co-founders Eric Schoonover and Robert Duffy designed a 15-point plan they say can help any organization, no matter how mired in legacy culture, with the thorny problem of how to start with DevOps. Duffy brings his experience from Amazon and Time to the table, while Schoonover comes from Microsoft,

Continuous Testing in the DevOps Universe

Source – itbusinessedge.com One of the main challenges with DevOps is that the term itself does not adequately describe the functional integration taking place in the enterprise. If it was just a matter of combining development and operations, things would be a lot simpler. But the fact is that a number of processes need to gain equal footing in the DevOps pipeline in order to produce a truly agile IT environment. One of these functions is testing. Like other aspects of

Software development slow because ‘Most of our ideas suck’

Source – theregister.co.uk If you want a vision of the future of software creation, imagine a boot process spinning up a server, forever. Speaking at Continuous Lifecycle London* on Wednesday, Mike Roberts, co-founder of consultancy Symphonia Cloud, employed less Orwellian terminology for tomorrow: continuous experimentation. Perhaps you’ve heard of continuous delivery, the trending software engineering practice that aims to accelerate development cycles while making them simultaneously speedy and boring. Continuous experimentation takes that a step further by reducing development cycles to

Attaining Continuous Testing in DevOps through a Templated Approach

Source – devops.com The continuous demand market for flawless applications is being addressed through advanced software development techniques along with continuous delivery. As such, many organizations adopted the shift-left approach and agile best practices—which suggests the motto, “test early, test often,”—through which they get to imbibe QA practices and testing early in the software development pipeline. That also includes continuous testing for many organizations. Continuous Testing in DevOps Continuous testing today is the most preferred practice by leading software companies. Continuous
