When looking at the tools and methodologies used today to manage software development, we see a diverse array. There are traditional waterfall methodologies and tools, agile principles, ALM tools, and increasingly, a DevOps toolchain. The primary objective behind each of these approaches and tools is to manage the development and delivery of software for the enterprise. Software development affects all aspects of operations and is tied more closely to the enterprise than ever before. To truly optimize the development lifecycle and enhance collaboration across the enterprise, we must head toward a new generation of tools aimed at accelerating the pipeline while improving quality ...

In many ways running the gauntlet of audit is like playing out the "do I feel lucky" scene from the movie Dirty Harry. Even if organizations have bridged the chasm between Dev and Ops, their go-fast efforts can be shot to pieces by those darned list-wielding and trigger-happy compliance police. But it doesn't have to be this way. Audit needn't kill innovation, just as DevOps shouldn't cause undue consternation for auditors. Each can and should benefit the other; it just takes some work and plain old common sense ...

As the integration of Development and Operations gains traction among business think tanks to ensure development of quality software products and faster delivery schedules, Quality Assurance (QA) takes center stage. In DevOps QA, developers and testers use agile and lean methodologies to test software for glitches during various stages of its development. As a real test environment with a number of dependencies is difficult to be created owing to cost and other factors, service virtualization strategy helps to set up a virtual test environment to check for desired outcomes of the software or the lack of them ...

As organizations continue to adopt a more collaborative DevOps model, many face a common challenge: effectively integrating security practices into the application development lifecycle process. According to a new HPE report, virtually all IT operations professionals, security leaders and developers (99 percent) agree that adopting a DevOps culture has the opportunity to improve application security. However, only 20 percent are actually conducting application security testing today during the development process ...

DevOps is a powerful process that can catapult industry leaders into the next stratosphere of transformation success when combined with the right people, process, and technology. The converse is also true. Applying DevOps principles of agility, continuous integration and delivery without addressing broken processes, gaps in skillsets or technology – is a recipe for disaster. This 3 part blog series will focus on the people and process challenges that impact DevOps implementations across 3 areas – Business, Technology Leadership, and Technology Execution based on my research for my latest book, iSpeak Cloud: Embracing Digital Transformation. This first blog will focus on the Business & Technology interaction ....
