Source – information-age.com A recent survey by eMarketer found that the average person clocks over 4 hours of time on their mobile phone every single day, with 90% of that time spent on apps. It comes as no surprise then that to satisfy this ever-increasing digital appetite, apps need to be developed and updated rapidly. The fact that an app works – or, indeed, doesn’t work is of primordial importance in whether the customer has a positive or negative impression of a company.

DevOps pros and open source: Culturally connected

Source – devopsagenda.techtarget.com DevOps pros love open source software partly for technical reasons. They also love open source because open source software overlaps culturally with DevOps. Understanding where open source and DevOps intersect leads to a better understanding of DevOps itself. If you look around the DevOps world, open source software is everywhere. Platforms like Jenkins, Ansible, Docker and Nagios — to name just a handful of examples — form part of the toolchain of DevOps organizations far and wide. That does

Combat waste with a DevOps feedback loop, triage and automation

Source – devopsagenda.techtarget.com Gruver sat down with DevOps Agenda to explain enterprise inefficiencies and the value of a quick and effective DevOps feedback loop. The basic definition of DevOps is the answer to a question: How do you release code on a more frequent basis while enabling all aspects of quality? It should be a straightforward, easy process, and everybody would be doing it if there weren’t waste and inefficiencies in the system. One thing I like about DevOps is that, when you

By combining a little philosophy and a lot of tools, devops unlocks dramatic increases in speed and efficiency.

How to Maintain Security when Rolling out DevOps

Source – informationweek.com DevOps may be up and running for your enterprise. Taking the time to integrate security will keep it that way. While DevOps is relatively new to mainstream enterprises, DevSecOps is even newer. And arguably it is just as important. While DevOps is designed to move fast, that can open up vulnerabilities in security that are easily preventable with the right controls. Development and security teams need to understand each other’s goals and requirements. Some might see security professionals as purveyors

How devops changes both dev and ops

Source – techworld.com.au Devops is the literal and figurative fusion of development and operations. For years, these two groups have been separated by cultural and knowledge boundaries, particularly inside larger enterprise IT organizations.

The complete disconnect between these two groups led to long QA cycles and infrequent production deployments for fear of downtime or breaking something. A

Big organisations are just too weighed down by bureaucracy, legacy technologies and waterfall-style software development techniques for DevOps to thrive, and any attempt to challenge the status quo will come to nothing – or so the rhetoric went. But what
