Applications should be modernized whenever possible, but it is notoriously difficult to do. Enterprises complain that goals are too technical, business practices are negatively affected and costs overrun expectations. Application modernization projects often become a focus of technical tunnel vision, disconnected from what should be target benefits and from a way to unify

Delivery and Adoption of Cloud Computing

Source – oracle.cioreview.com What is “Cloud” ? Cloud computing delivery models provide users with on-demand access to a flexible, wide-ranging pool of technology assets composed of services, applications, servers, networks, and storage facilities. Due to the habit of referring to data and applications as being “in the cloud,” it can be easily forgotten that cloud is housed in physical facilities. Cloud computing services are powered by highly virtualized processing and storage systems in data centers, which are available to remote users

Effective DevOps pipelines require a continuous delivery tool chain

You have to integrate your teams and workflows, and keep them in sync with one another, if you want to

Continuous Delivery with Kubernetes the Hard Way

Source – infoq.com This post will discuss how to build up an architecture for continuous delivery from simple to complicated. At each point we’ll see the limitations of the simpler approaches, and justify adding complexity and/or refactoring the architecture. The ultimate approach described here is the approach that the Weaveworks team has found works best for them. Continuous delivery Continuous delivery is when software is produced in a way that allows it to be released little and often, rather than in
