DevSecOps: Focus training on 3 key areas

  Source- enterprisersproject.com DevOps, with its fast and frequent release cycles, is the new environment that organizations need to contend with in order to stay competitive in the market. It is especially challenging when security considerations come into play since developers don’t often have secure coding expertise and since security practices traditionally stall release cycles. Despite its necessity, establishing a DevSecOps environment in an organization is no simple feat; it is a complicated, multi-layered process, and much of its success relies on the reinforcement of strong

Should You Migrate Your DevOps Architecture to the Cloud?

Source- informationweek.com This is the question I’m helping numerous customers answer right now. Development operations and the creation of a continuous development cycle are somewhat of a new concept. Ever since development leaders saw that working with broken release cycles, coding practices, and heterogenous tools actually slowed the entire process down, we’ve seen massive movement around today’s modern DevOps culture. Before we go on, I need to touch on the concept of legacy. At a high level, this is any process

Container security starts with Kubernetes

Source- jaxenter.com The rise of container technology is undeniable, and it’s not hard to see why. By offering greater DevOps flexibility as well as an optimized build/deployment pipeline, container technology is allowing companies and their development teams to build faster, deploy software more efficiently and operate at an unprecedented scale. Gartner estimates that 50 per cent of companies will leverage container technology by 2020, up from roughly 20 per cent in 2017, and this momentum is sure to continue to rapidly increase. In

Rev up IT with continuous delivery and DevOps

Source – techtarget.com Humans love to go fast. That thrill can extend to software code with the pairing of continuous integration/continuous delivery and DevOps. Continuous integration (CI), continuous delivery (CD) and continuous deployment all focus on getting newly created code onto production systems as quickly as possible — without breaking anything. The terms can be segmented by steps: CI facilitates and automates code creation, verification and management before it is an executable product. CD brings executable code through automated and manual

A model-driven approach is the best way to scale DevOps

Source – techtarget.com Modern software requires deployments that run consistently and correctly across different environments. As the software release process matures within an organization, a model-driven approach helps enable automation for complex deployment scenarios, increase release velocity and improve software quality. Deployment milestones of maturity The first milestone of maturity in this process is reached when manual processes no longer work. As deployment demands grow, there are almost always mounting impediments — lack of speed, consistency and visibility, to name a

Five steps to delivering DevOps at scale

Source – gigaom.com So, you’re thinking of taking DevOps out of the relatively safe, yet challenging environment of the controlled initiative, and into the far less safe, and even more challenging environment of the broader enterprise? While, “if you want get there, don’t start from here,” may be a familiar adage, most organisations have little choice but to take what they have (in terms of strategy and organisation, people and tools) as a foundation for DevOps nirvana. Given this, complex, crumbling

Re-Architecting Log Management for DevOps

Source – itbusinessedge.com Log management in a DevOps environment requires a lot more than just the right platform. As enterprises become more steeped in DevOps processes, tools like deep visibility and AI-driven analytics are proving invaluable to continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD). But in many cases, even the most advanced of these technologies will fail to produce the desired results if not implemented and orchestrated properly. Among the initial questions organizations face when revamping their log practices is what components to log and

DevOps Intelligence Gathering: What Are We Measuring Here?

Source – adtmag.com There’s a business adage that goes, “We manage what we measure,” (or some variation thereof) — which is important insight, but easier said than done when it comes to DevOps. Moreover, says Tim Buntel, DevOps Advocate at XebiaLabs, it’s downright tricky. “If you think about, say, a manufacturing process, where you have specific outputs — products like cars or cell phones — the metrics are fairly straightforward,” Buntel said. “But measuring software development and delivery in general can be

IBM celebrates 10 years of DevOps with new releases

Source – betanews.com Over the past decade, DevOps techniques have helped to transform software development teams with a new and more agile approach. But now companies are starting to move beyond the standard DevOps approach in what is being called ‘Day 2’ DevOps, a world that emphasizes scalability and teamwork. In such environments, development teams shift one way, operations teams shift the other and together they can deliver and manage multiple, complex applications at the same time. In order to meet

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
