GitHub’s Actions Challenge Traditional CI Vendors

Source- forbes.com In the week since GitHub announced its new Actions capability, I’ve been speaking with developers and colleagues about the implications. There is no doubt that Actions was the most significant announcement at this year’s Universe conference, held in San Francisco, CA. It was met with considerable enthusiasm from those present, even taking into account the boosterism from the more committed GitHub employees present.

Important Practices for DevOps in the Cloud

Source- bdaily.co.uk Distributed computing and DevOps are two parts of the mechanical move which are totally indivisible. The point of DevOps is to streamline advancement with the goal that the necessities of the clients can make it into application generation while the cloud offers robotization to the way toward provisioning and scaling so application changes should be possible. The greatest test in managing the two is that IT experts honing DevOps in the cloud commit such a large number of errors

Software Delivery Depends on Infrastructure and Trust

Source- informationweek.com Cloud infrastructure plays a major role in a company’s ability to execute a high performing software delivery cycle.

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

For DevOps, the day has come, gaining mindshare among organizations and given importance like never before. However, certain companies are unable to understand what’s going on in their respective industries or how one they make their digital operations

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. The second, and possibly even more important, is the need to have the

Microservices Help Scale Distributed Apps, Survey Finds

Source- enterprisetech.com The ability to scale applications and get products and services out the door faster are the primary reasons DevOps teams are embracing microservices, a new survey finds.

Among the emerging challenges is determining the best way to communicate among those lightweight services. While nearly two-thirds of the 354 companies surveyed by workflow automation

In a DevOps evolution, there are many paths to success, but even more that lead to failure

Source- networksasia.net Every organisation is different and for most, the DevOps journey isn’t linear. There are many starts and stops along the way, which can kill early momentum and lead to cynicism. Without a prescriptive path forward, organisations are struggling to scale their DevOps success beyond isolated teams, according to the 2018 State of DevOps Report released by Puppet. Globally, 80 percent of respondent organisations are Medium. Almost 11 percent are Low and just under 10 percent are High. Though DevOps
