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 ...

Culture is the single most critical part of any DevOps initiatives. You can have a great technology stack with all the right tooling in place, but if your teams don't trust each other, don't communicate effectively, and play the blame game, the chances of a DevOps initiative paying off are slim ...

DevOps is a reality for all companies that seek to digitize their businesses. Agile begat DevOps due to the increased number of applications and the speed at which applications are released. Agile breaks down the wall between the business and development; DevOps does the same to the wall between development and operations. However, one part of the operations function is absolutely neglected by DevOps: the database. Ignore it at your peril ...

DevOps leaders are engaged in an all-out effort to "shift left" so they can deliver better software faster and at lower cost. Much of this effort entails fairly dramatic re-engineering of the dev/test process. And, if we're honest, much of it also entails a management culture of extreme demands on the development and test team ...

DevOps teams today churn out releases at a rapid pace, and securing these applications is more challenging than ever. Code is continuously changing, and developers must identify and fix security bugs as quickly as possible. Developers need effective tools to help reduce the risk of data breaches while the software development and release machinery is getting faster ...

DevOps discussions typically center around process, culture, and technology. But if you work for a global financial institution or a high-end game developer, you probably wish someone would talk about scale. In fact, the differences between DevOps and "Big DevOps" are non-trivial ...

The recent iOS 10 release raises a lot of questions about how mobile apps will respond to the updated system, and how developers can ensure an untarnished user experience. It’s safe to assume that withholding the update from these popular devices may lead to a lower adoption rate for the new OS — large groups of users will continue to use the iPad 2, iPad Mini and iPhone 4S, and will be unable to make the switch. The end result? We're going to see growing iOS fragmentation in various markets, and complex testing ahead. In preparation for this mobile testing overhaul, developers need to take a look at their existing testing labs and plans, and alter them to fit the new market matrix ...

At its core, DevOps is about building and delivering quality software at scale. But exactly how you go about doing that is going to vary from company to person to project. DevOps does not look the same anywhere ...

The reason Gartner brought the idea of bimodal IT to light was to create breathing space so that organizations could transform and innovate without crashing and burning. The reason that Agile was created, for instance, was to enable a faster, more responsive process than waterfall practices can offer. However, switching to continuous delivery and integration mode too quickly could prove disastrous for certain systems, as some change carries more inherent risk than other changes. Following are key elements to consider when transitioning to ensure that applications continue to run at optimal levels ...

Sometimes a phrase or concept becomes so popular that its original meaning gets buried beneath people's alternative meanings or outright misappropriations. This is what has happened with "bimodal IT." Consequently, organizations have expectations and assumptions that differ from the original term, leading to confusion, disappointment and even disillusionment in some cases. Let's examine what this term "bimodal IT" actually means, why it makes sense in some cases and how to ease the pain of transition ...
