Putting Security on Par with DevOps

Source- darkreading.com DevSecOps: It’s not a very friendly acronym. It reeks of techno-babble, sounds a little military, and resists a consumer connection. But think again.

Maybe that’s why we’re now seeing greater research and more discussion devoted to the subject. But what’s really at stake here? And what needs to happen next? First, let’s understand the

Steps on the Journey to DevOps

Source- devops.com There was a time when people thought DevOps was a simple movement that didn’t need to be defined.

For DevOps, the day has come, gaining mindshare among organizations and given importance like never before.

How to drive an effective DevOps for business approach

Source- devopsagenda.techtarget.com In the majority of cases, this comes down to an organization understanding DevOps as a development or operational issue, one meant to speed the delivery of code from one group to another. This perception of DevOps, though, misses a couple of important areas. The first, as I wrote about a while back, is the need to have security baked into the whole process in the form of DevSecOps.

Globally, 80 percent of respondent organisations are Medium. Almost 11 percent are Low and just under 10 percent are High. Though DevOps

The corruption of DevOps

Source- ciodive.com Enterprise technology has a long history of asking for the easy answer. Process people and technology people commingle, with underlying divisions creating tangible opposition. Business stakeholders ask for more than technologists think reasonable, and dusty layers of backend technology leaves IT always asking for more resources, more people, funding and tools. Compounding the issue is the disconnect between those that develop and operate business technology. Once all the business requirements are met, developers unleash software on operations, leaving
