Database automation drives DevOps into the persistence layer

Source – theserverside.com The adoption of highly scriptable cloud-based technologies, along with the emergence of continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD) tools, has created an environment in which every operations process should be scriptable and all manual processes targeted for automation. Organizations with a DevOps approach to application lifecycle management should automate every process imaginable, but they often hit a wall when they reach the persistence layer. Emerging technologies have the potential to make that limitation disappear. Apply DevOps lessons

Three Keys to Aligning Digital and DevOps

Source – news.sys-con.com On first glance, Digital Transformation and DevOps seem to be separate, disconnected endeavors – especially once you realize that Digital Transformation is more about aligning the organization with changing customer needs and desires, rather than software. DevOps, in contrast, appears to be all about the code – how to build, maintain, and update it more quickly. Yet this view of DevOps also misses the bigger picture, as the movement is more of a cultural and organizational change that

What is DevSecOps? Developing more secure applications

Source – itworld.com The simple premise of DevSecOps is that everyone in the software development life cycle is responsible for security, in essence bringing operations and development together with security functions. DevSecOps aims to embed security in every part of the development process. It is about trying to automate core security tasks by embedding security controls and processes early in the DevOps workflow (rather than being bolted on at the end). For example, this could be the case when migrating to
