At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication
must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way.
It's easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new
methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success
requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the
To bring about a cultural shift it's important to share challenges. In simple
terms, ensuring that everyone knows what everyone else is doing can create a
real team spirit and social cohesion that will drive DevOps forward. Here are
six tips that can be implemented to help you get there.
A daily team meeting where people get an opportunity to review their progress
by addressing three simple questions:
What did I do yesterday? What will I do today? What might block me fro... (more)
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype
around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it
is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development
just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT
performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be
quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO's chair will
come from the IT leaders that successfully make the transition to a DevOps
model. If this still seems foreign to you, I recommend reading up on DevOps
Blog from IT Revolution, the OpsCode Blog, and check out The Phoenix Project.
Despite all the talk around simple monitoring tools, breaking through the
walls between Dev and Ops still poses a real challenge. This is because of a
misunderstanding around Operations real purp... (more)
21 DevOps and Docker Reference Architectures
When building DevOps or continuous delivery practices you can learn a great
deal from others. What choices did they make, what practices did they put
in place, and how did they connect the dots?
At Sonatype, we pulled together a set of 21 reference architectures for
folks building continuous delivery and DevOps practices using Docker. Why?
After 3,000 DevOps professionals attended our webinar on "Continuous
Integration using Docker" discussing just one reference architecture example,
we recognized there was a strong interest in the community to learn more.
That's why we assembled 20 more reference architectures into this
A picture speaks a thousand words, but beyond the images, we also share the
details of each DevOps/CD Docker reference architecture. In the bottom
right corner of each slide, we share the... (more)

DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo 2014 Silicon Valley was a terrific event for us.
The Qubell booth was crowded on all three days.
We ran demos every 30 minutes with folks lining up to get a seat and usually
standing around. It was great to meet and talk to over 500 people!
My keynote was well received and so was Stan's joint presentation with
RingCentral on Devops for BigData.
I also participated in two Power Panels - ‘Women in Technology' and ‘Why
DevOps Is Even More Important than You Think,' both featuring brilliant
colleagues and moderators and it was a blast to be a part of.
The Grid Dynamics folks were showcasing their technology called Agile
Software Factory that pre-packages many popular open source technologies and
tools into a fully integrated technology suite for continuous delivery
pipeline, from code changes to production updates.
Qubell is used by the Agile... (more)
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud
Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY
- announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals.
The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in
enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and
collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for
long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch.
DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
The DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo will expand the DevOps community, enable a
wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers
alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development
time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support
time generally. Tim... (more)

(http://DevOpsSummit.SYS-CON.com), held Nov 4-6, 2014, at the Santa Clara

Don’t Freak Out! Five Ways to Mitigate the Risks of TiP
If there is one thing we know for sure, it is that it's extremely difficult
to accurately reproduce a production environment for QA purposes. That's why
there is such a natural pull in the direction of Testing in Production (TiP),
in which testing is done within the live environment where real users are
actively engaged in the product.
There are many benefits to using the production system as a means to conduct
QA, but it can be stressful for an organization that isn't well-versed in the
practice. Oftentimes, the risks of TiP prevent software testers from even
trying it out. And in the worst-case scenario, a poorly managed TiP
initiative can have dangerous consequences, impacting real users and revenue.
However, TiP is not something to be afraid of. The more you understand what
may go wrong and how to take the p... (more)
Five Surefire Ways to Make Your Enterprise DevOps Initiative Fail Miserably
By Dalibor Siroky
2014 was the year that DevOps arrived in large enterprises, and we're seeing
several large corporations moving to more agile software delivery and more
frequent releases. We've helped many companies move toward DevOps practices
using Plutora to provide necessary transparency to manage risk and track
agile software development efforts, and over the past few years we've come to
understand what makes a DevOps initiative succeed and what makes it fail.
In this post we focus on some of the factors that can contribute to a failed
DevOps initiative - a DevOps initiative that often ends up being either
abandoned or one that ultimately ends up recreating the same messy
bureaucracy it was supposed to replace.
Failure #1: Fail to define what DevOps means to your organization
The term D... (more)
This morning on #c9d9 we talked about Bobbi Tables, and other aspects
of DevOps and Security.
How DevOps practices can improve security, compliance, and auditability? What
are some of the best practices for building security as an integral part of
your tools and practices throughout your delivery pipeline?
Our panelists shared tips for securing your code, your environments,
your processes, improving visibility and compliance, and accelerating Mean
Time to Recovery (MTTR).
