Languages and DevOps On April 17, Saturday, 2021

"The right tool for the job" is a much more complex question in an existing IT environment than it is in woodworking. Assess the language with regard to how well it actually does the job you need to do. If you choose ASP.NET today, will it be a solid choice tomorrow? Does the tool do what you want, or will you be working around faults to get there? Do the tools have modules/add-ons that customize it for your target?

Why a Unified Enterprise DevOps Platform is Necessary? On March 27, Saturday, 2021

DevOps requires frictionless interplay between people, processes and technologies for continuous deliveries to happen effectively. Process management and improvements are seriously slowed down when the details of automating the orchestration, execution and monitoring are not standard. Business leaders want to leverage the values of continuous flow of software improvement made possible by DevOps. But the flow is bottlenecked when services of the organization must be delivered through a disparate combination of unconnected pipelines.

How to Make Self-Service IT More Intelligent? On March 27, Saturday, 2021

DevOps' need for speed and agility clashes with IT's need for security and control. Many enterprises have achieved this balance by implementing a self-service IT model. But, multi-cloud strategies will continue adding more layers of complexity to IT infrastructure management, writes Fu. Unauthorized apps and resources running in the background without IT's knowledge can create security vulnerabilities and cost overruns, he says. It can also lead to misconfigurations and inadvertent security risks, Fu says.

Languages and DevOps On March 25, Thursday, 2021

Every conceivable language is used in cloud development, but Node is the go-to language of today. Targeting cloud is not so much about language as it is DevOps tooling. The negative to cloud-centric development is lock-in, of course. The real solution is in our next installment – container development. It's easier to spin up a test environment as-needed and spin it back down when testing is done in the cloud. It is easier to create a re-spinnable environment for test-on-demand.

Data Theorem Extends App Analyzer Portfolio On March 25, Thursday, 2021

Data Theorem adds Cloud Secure analyzer to its portfolio. Analyzer provides visibility into applications through the client, network and cloud layers of a distributed computing environment. Data Theorem COO: In modern IT environments, the single biggest attack surface is all the APIs that need to be secured. Biggest challenge will be finding security tools that can be easily integrated into application development processes, Dan Dooley says. It's still early days as far as adoptiing tools such as Cloud Secure, he says.

DevOps-as-a-Service (DaaS)? On March 24, Wednesday, 2021

DaaS is DevOps capabilities made available to users through portals and APIs, on demand. A DaaS blueprint has four layers, as follows. Service Access Layer - consists of user portals, APIs and access security. Resources Layer - includes application stacks, infrastructure resources, tools, infrastructure code and topology data. DevOps-as-a-Service (DaaS) provides many valuable capabilities to business, app-dev users and DaaS teams. Kubernetes capabilities match many of the requirements for DaaS implementations. Anyone looking to implement DaaS can benefit by using Kubernetes.

Why Developers Should Care About Resilience? On March 17, Wednesday, 2021

Software engineers often find themselves on calls with both support and the customer. They know that millions of dollars are on the line, and that pressure is high to solve the problem. But they also know they must do anything to keep getting paid, so they keep the coffee flowing. "Solving customer issues is difficult and frustrating, and being pressured by business could ruin a software engineer's day," says Amitai Etzioni. "You end up spending too much time sifting through endless logs, crossing your fingers and trying to reproduce an issue," he says.

Languages and DevOps On March 15, Monday, 2021

A huge swath of applications are still targeted at a single system to do a specific job. Online forums are full of people trying to re-target traditional apps. Cross-platform development tools are out there, from Mono to Java to Xojo. Your biggest concern for DevOps will probably be portability in the near future, says John Defterios. The work that needs doing, even if it isn't the part of DevOps everyone is buzzing about, is still important, Defterio says.

How to Know if You Need Multi-Cloud Platform? On March 14, Sunday, 2021

Operating in multiple clouds adds complexity, increases operational overhead and can become expensive. A single application and its data should never span multiple clouds, if it can be avoided. Multi-cloud environments are unavoidable due to organizational history or legal reasons. Some organizations can end up operating in public clouds and private clouds as they acquire other companies. There are totally legitimate reasons to have a multi-cloud setup that will still require more effort to maintain than operating in a single cloud.

The Rise of Citizen Developers On March 10, Wednesday, 2021

In today's increasingly remote-first work environment, technical frustration affects all levels of an organization. IT leadership teams are looking for new ways to empower and streamline their organizations. With remote workforces on the rise, it's an ideal time to implement no-code automation solutions. By doing so, businesses empower the average employee to become a citizen developer, writes Dan Viederman, CTO at IT company Redis. It's safe to say the era of the citizen developer is just beginning, says Viedarian.

How to chose IaC Frameworks? On March 05, Friday, 2021

With the shift from monolithic to microservices, applications becomes more complicated and making it more important to automate infrastructure. Engineers write and maintain IaC, and something executes the code. Engineers influence the infrastructure much more than they used to – that is the third cloud revolution. Going forward, developers and the community will hold the key to the future of IaC, not executives and large vendors, he says.

GrammaTech Allies with GitLab to Advance DevSecOps On March 05, Friday, 2021

GrammaTech has partnered with GitLab to integrate its CodeSonar static application security testing (SAST) tools with the GitLab. The goal is to enable developers to discover security flaws as early as possible. The later those flaws are discovered, the more expensive they become to fix, GrammaTech's Vince Arneja said. Developers tend to postpone the security scans as they race to meet an application deadline. It's more efficient to scan smaller amounts of code frequently. The more code there is to analyze, the longer such scans takes.

Why Application Delivery Critical to DevOps? On February 26, Friday, 2021

CI/CD and agile development methodologies require IT experts from different domains to deploy services. IT requires automation so that even non-technical experts can develop and craft application delivery and security workflows. According to Radware research, over half (53%) of organisations don't integrate application protection into CI/CD processes. To enable anybody from different teams to deploy and manage services regardless of the domain expertise he or she possesses. It's time for IT operations to transition from simple scripts to standard-based, production-ready modules.
