Shift (Web App) Security Lefter By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit #API #DevOps

JDJ - Sat, 2015-07-11 17:00
The concept of "shifting left" for appropriate IT concerns is growing. The notion is basically to shift more into the app dev delivery pipeline functions that, when applied earlier, can result in greater stability and security of the resulting code. Security is one of those functions that can yield significant benefits in terms of reducing the conflicts and errors that crop up in production and cost time and money the business would rather not spend.

Service Virtualization and Microservices By @PenningJe | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Microservices

JDJ - Sat, 2015-07-11 14:15
Microservices are individual units of executable code that work within a limited framework. They are extremely useful when placed within an architecture of numerous microservices. On June 24th, 2015 I attended a webinar titled “How to Share Share-Nothing Microservices,” hosted by Jason Bloomberg, the President of Intellyx, and Scott Edwards, Director Product Marketing for Service Virtualization at CA Technologies. The webinar explained how to use microservices to your advantage in order to deliver products that are competitive in the application economy.

[slides] Optimize DevOps By @IsomorphicHQ | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Containers #Microservices

JDJ - Fri, 2015-07-10 21:45
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Microservices Total Cost of Ownership: Too Soon? By @Aruna13 | @DevOpsSummit #Microservices

JDJ - Fri, 2015-07-10 20:45
Microservices are hot. And for good reason. To compete in today’s fast-moving application economy, it makes sense to break large, monolithic applications down into discrete functional units. Such an approach makes it easier to update and add functionalities (text-messaging a customer, calculating sales tax for a specific geography, etc.) and get those updates / adds into production fast. In fact, some would argue that microservices are a prerequisite for true continuous delivery. But is it too soon to talk about keeping microservices lifecycle costs under control?

What The Internet of Things Is Not | @ThingsExpo #API #IoT

JDJ - Fri, 2015-07-10 19:45
Some time ago, I wrote an article entitled, "What is the Internet of Things?" It sought to help put the Internet of Things (IoT) into perspective and helped describe a dream about what the IoT could eventually become. Technologies always mature and people's feelings toward them change. In addition, the reality of the Internet of Things begins to set in. The vaporware and promises of yesterday fade in the face of what the technology can actually do and how people actually expect to use it. Many people are saying that the IoT is losing steam, but that's not really the case. The IoT is maturing and becoming a more useful technology space that developers can actually employ to create some really compelling digital experiences. This article looks at the IoT through the lens of reality to state what the IoT isn't, which means that you discover what it really is all about.

How to Thrive in the Mobile-First World By @BTalbotJR | @CloudExpo #Cloud

JDJ - Fri, 2015-07-10 16:45
Analysts predict that 268 billion mobile apps will be downloaded by 2017, further evidence that mobile apps have become the most diverse and broadly adopted software in existence. To thrive in this new reality, developing and delivering applications that drive superior user experiences and engage your customers and staff is the new business imperative. Examples of this new cloud-centric, mobile-first application economy are everywhere, and they are radically changing the world of business. In entertainment, applications like Netflix and Hulu have already transformed video delivery, and are becoming the new standards. In the payments sector, applications like Google Wallet and PayPal are challenging the dominance of traditional banks and credit cards. In transportation, software-driven services like Uber and Lyft are rewriting both the back office and customer experience world of taxi and limo services.

DevOps 101 - Integration By @JoePruitt | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

JDJ - Fri, 2015-07-10 03:45
The second pillar in the DevOps stack is that of Integration. DevOps integration targets quality testing, feature development, and product delivery. Integration, or more specifically, Systems Integration is the process of linking together different computing or component systems and software applications physically or functionally to perform as a single consolidated unit. Systems integration requires a wide skill set in areas such as network architecture, protocols, systems, software engineering, documentation and communication. A DevOps Engineer needs to have a unique skill set that combines that of both the traditional software developer with that of the IT engineer. Typically DevOps engineers are either developers who get interested in the deployment process of their applications or system administrators who have a passion for scripting and software development.

Take the Long View with Digital Transformation

JDJ - Thu, 2015-07-09 22:00
Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organization understanding that through mobility, data is being generated and analyzed on the edges of the enterprise more than at the center mixing and matching that data in an ecosystem of specific, loosely connected applications and services automating processes; analyzing and acting upon data in short timeframes to develop, improve, and enhance products and services directly through IT having enough well-trained people at all levels of the organization to address the inevitable technology glitches while also maintaining a high-level strategic view of what's going on. I recently attended the Cloud Foundry Summit 2015 in Santa Clara, CA, and listened to many stories of Digital Transformation. The catalyst in these cases was, naturally, Cloud Foundry, an open-source PaaS that is used to handle the complex infrastructure that underlies cloud-computing development, provisioning, and operations. I was struck by the impatience of much of this discussion; many presenters spoke of the old ways of doing things versus the new, slick, automated, loosely coupled, transformative way and how great progress was being made and would continue to be made this year. One could get the idea that Digital Transformation is a product or service itself, and one that needs to be installed right now. This type of thinking is only natural in a modern business environment that does not reward patience. Things must be accomplished in a few months, rather than years. In an era where servers can be ordered up and deployed “within seconds,” according to many glowing reports, the idea of a true long-term strategy gets lost in the excitement. But Digital Transformation is something that should be thought of in terms of years, and decades. We must retain the ability to look back over a period of 20 years and longer, to see what's truly been fundamentally accomplished. My twitter handle of “IoT2040” reflects my viewpoint, as I'm researching, covering, and instigating progress over the next 25 years, whether I'm around to see the end-state of this progress or not. Taking the long view does not mean throwing a bunch of exotic visions and soothing words in the air. It means setting measurable goals and focusing day-to-day efforts to turn those goals into self-fulfilling prophesies. I'm inspired by Moore's Law, which is not an absolute, but rather something that people have assumed is an absolute and therefore worked their tails off for decades to adhere to it. A similar commitment to measurable Digital Transformation would seem to be in order. I can dovetail this thought into our ongoing research at the Tau Institute, which measures dynamics of IT environments in the nations of the world; and in my role as Conference Chair of Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo, which continues to offer a mix of proven use cases and envelope-pushing vision. In the first role, we can argue that a lack of commitment to IT in Greece is a reflection (or perhaps precipitator) of the country's perilous economic state, whereas an overheated technology environment has caused (and is causing) societal disruption in several countries throughout the world. In the second role, I'm pleased to point to some slight yet significant tweaks to the eight core tracks being offered at the next Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo, to be held November 3-5 in Santa Clara. Cloud APIs have their own unique track this time, Containers and Microservices have their own track, and our three IoT-focused tracks have been focused more tightly on the latest developments. Here's a list of the specific tracks: Track 1 – Enterprise Cloud Adoption   Track 2 – Mobility | Enterprise Security   Track 3 – Containers & Microservices | PaaS   Track 4 – Cloud APIs   Track 5 – IoT | Big Data & Analytics   Track 6 - IoT | Consumer/Wearables Track 7 - IoT | Enterprise/Industrial Internet Track 8 – WebRTC Summit | Hot Topics   We'll also be holding another DevOps Summit at the same time, with tracks devoted respectively to Development and Operations.

The Emergence of Business Agility By @TheEbizWizard | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

JDJ - Thu, 2015-07-09 13:15
In my last Cortex newsletter, I discussed the history of Conway’s Law, and took a close look at how this erstwhile law can help us understand the reorganizations and deeper cultural shifts behind devops and digital transformation. The law – “any organization that designs a system will inevitably produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organization’s communication structure” – is more of an observation of correlations between system designs and communication structures, rather than anything resembling a law.

Why Docker Is Not Enough By @Bart_Copeland | @DevOpsSummit @ActiveState #DevOps #Docker #Containers #Microservices

I want to start by saying that, at ActiveState, we absolutely love Docker. We think it's phenomenal technology that is really becoming the global currency of the cloud. We've written about Docker a lot on the ActiveState blog – we've celebrated its birthday, discussed evolving technologies surrounding it, and shown how we've integrated Docker into Stackato. But, I wanted to share with you why we feel Docker alone is not enough for the enterprise. First, I'm going to discuss two underlying problems that plague most enterprises today:
