How to Win Over DevOps Holdouts | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousDelivery

How to Win Over DevOps Holdouts By Tim Buntel It’s “time to move on from DevOps and continuous delivery.” This was the provocative title of a recent article in ZDNet, in which Kelsey Hightower, staff developer advocate at Google Cloud Platform, suggested that “software shops should have put these concepts into action years ago.” Reading articles like this or listening to talks at most DevOps conferences might make you think that we’re entering a post-DevOps world. But vast numbers of organizations still struggle to start and drive transformational changes. In fact, it’s incredibly common for software development projects to be late, to be built with poor quality, and to fail to meet the needs of users. Despite all the evidence that we should be doing DevOps, we can’t. What’s Holding Up DevOps? What’s keeping so many organizations from a full DevOps transformation? Pa... (more)

Data Monetization? Cue the Chief Data Monetization Officer | @ExpoDX #DX #BigData #DataLake

Data Monetization! Data Monetization! Data Monetization! It’s the new mantra of many organizations. But what does “data monetization” really mean, how do you do it, and more importantly, who in the organization owns the job of “data monetization”? The role of Chief Data Officer (CDO) would seem to be a godsend to answer the data monetization challenge. They should be the catalyst in helping organizations to become more effective at leveraging data and analytics to power the digital transformation. However, all is not well in the world of the CDO. Many organizations appoint a CDO with an Information Technology (IT) background – the same background and experience as the Chief Information Officer (CIO). The organization then ends up splitting the existing CIO role between the current CIO and the CDO; giving the CDO the tasks associated with data collection, governance, ... (more)

But now that Agile is maturing and Digital Transformation is driving change across enterprises large and small, companies are realizing that their best bet for ... (more)
