DevOps Evolution: Architecting the Modern Software Factory Translating agile methodology into real-world best practices within the modern software factory has driven widespread DevOps adoption, yet much work remains to expand workflows and tooling across the enterprise. As models evolve from pockets of experimentation into wholescale organizational reinvention, practitioners find themselves challenged to incorporate the culture and architecture necessary to support DevOps at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Anand Akela, Senior Director, DevOps Solutions, at CA Technologies, will discuss how existing adopters are employing unified agile and DevOps techniques to engage functional processes and toolchains that deliver increased software quality, faster time to market and measurably improved customer experience.

Leveraging Advanced Analytics to Power Digital Transformation | @ThingsExpo #AI #ML #DX #IoT #M2M

“You can’t stop the incessant march of economics” – Bill Schmarzo Okay, so it’s probably not cool to quote oneself, but hey, this is my blog and I get to do what I want.  And for anyone who follows me knows, I love to “riff” on the game-changing power of economics.  The “economics of big data” – where the cost to store, manage and analyze data is 20x to 100x cheaper than traditional analytics – started this big data and data science craze.  But ultimately it is the economics of value, or to be specific, “value in use” where the economics really become a game changer. I recent article titled “The Simple Economics of Machine Intelligence” from the Harvard Business Review highlights very well the role that economics (maybe even more than data science) is going to play in separating the winners from the losers in digital transformation.  To quote the article: Machine int...

Compression of Time and Distance with #DigitalTransformation | @ThingsExpo #AI #DX #IoT

Increasingly, in a world of compressed times and distances, humans will be the inventors, designers and managers of digital systems and processes, rather than the operators.  Operations will be measured in milliseconds, an inhumane speed where only the machines can deliver. Professor Paul Virilio, a philosopher of speed, urbanist and cultural theorist, wrote at length about the impact of speed on society.  He wrote that speed compresses both time and distance. Where once it took a letter 6 months to get to the other side of the world, an email can now arrive in seconds.  Today's near real-time communications has changed how nations are governed, markets operate and commerce is conducted.  The distance and time involved in communications has been compressed into seconds. Commanders of Roman armies could once estimate the day and time of battle based upon their soldie... (more)

Brain Change and #DigitalTransformation | @ThingsExpo #IoT #API #AI #DX #SmartCities

The renowned military strategist John Boyd taught that people and institutions collect favorite philosophies, strategies, theories and ideologies over a period of time, and then try to align the future to fit them.  The problem with this is the future is rarely like the past, and trying to fit new data into old paradigms often forces us to perform irrational mental gymnastics, which leaves us farther from the truth. Our resistance to change and unwillingness to question our beliefs in the face of mounting evidence, leads us to analytical and execution failure. A more productive habit would be to continuously review our mental constructs to find out how to modify our interpretations to align with new evidence.  This action, however, goes against our human nature that seeks stability and resists change.  We see the consequences of these challenges weekly as we read a...

Is DevOps a Fad? | @DevOpsSummit #CD #SaaS #Agile #DevOps

Is DevOps a Fad? By Neil Meyer Technology has a well-deserved reputation for creating and then promoting digital trends, some of which are aligned to real change, while many are more hype than reality. A few examples of real trends that have shaped technology delivery over the past few years include the rise of Agile and Cloud. Both deliver benefits across a broad set of industries and companies. In a meeting I recently had with a senior director at one of the “Big 4” consultancies, he mused that DevOps seems to be more of a rebranding or fad than a real change. After all, he argued, good companies had been adopting automation, built in regression testing and regular deployments for years. This reminded me of the discussion I had where someone said that SaaS was just a rebranding of “Application Service Provision” (ASP) from the early 2000’s. Sure ASP has some simil... (more)
