Continuous Deployment for Docker: Lessons Learned from Rolling Out our Real Live Service Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. Sometimes in order to reduce complexity teams compromise features or change requirements In her session at @DevOpsSummit, Stefana Muller, Vice President and Dev Evangelist at Opsani, will share the journey her engineering team took to continuously deploy ...

Containers 101: What You Need to Know | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #Containers

Containers 101: What You Need to Know Containers are the future of web development, in large part thanks to Docker's explosive growth. According to DataDog, 15 percent of hosts run Docker, which is significantly up from the 6 percent of hosts running it at this point in 2015. LinkedIn has also seen a 160 percent increase in profile references to Docker in just the past year alone, indicating Docker has become a much bigger priority for IT professionals looking for work. With this technology primed to continue its exponential growth in the coming years, here's a Q&A rundown of the basics: consider it Containers 101. What are containers, exactly? And why are they so rapidly grabbing developer market share from virtual machines? In order to better understand containers, it's helpful to consider them in contrast to virtual machines. A virtual machine (VM) is an emulatio... (more)

Hybrid Approach | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet #Serverless #DevOps #AI #DX

Waterfall Still Going Strong - But Is It Time for a Hybrid Approach? The nature of the technology business is forward-thinking. It focuses on the future and what's coming next. Innovations and creativity in our world of software development strive to improve the status quo and increase customer satisfaction through speed and increased connectivity. Yet, while it's exciting to see enterprises embrace new ways of thinking and advance their processes with cutting edge technology, it rarely happens rapidly or even simultaneously across all industries. For most organizations, the adoption of new technologies is a slow process and the larger they are and the longer they've been around, the more time it takes to make significant changes. What does this mean for the advancement of the software development industry? It means that solution providers need to assess not only wher... (more)

Building Success on the Three Foundations of DevOps ‘Power Panel’ | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #APM #Monitoring

Speed, Quality, Impact - Building Success on the Three Foundations of DevOps Many organizations adopt DevOps to reduce cycle times and deliver software faster; some take on DevOps to drive higher quality and better end-user experience; others look to DevOps for a clearer line-of-sight to customers to drive better business impacts.

The Future of Automation | @DevOpsSummit #AI #ML #DX #DevOps #DigitalTransformation

Automating Progress: The Future of Automation By Chris Boorman We've all read the dystopian fiction, watched those apocalyptic movies and heard a myriad of prophetic warnings heralding our obsolescence. Surely now we're just a couple of years from flipping the switch on a Skynet of our own making and condemning mankind to the annals of history. Actually, we're not entirely sure what the future holds, but it's probably not fire and brimstone. For detractors and naysayers of technology, could there be a more fitting image than Terminator 2's opening shot? A hulking, skeletal, humanoid machine crushing a human skull beneath its foot. Listening to ‘techno-skeptics' can sure make it feel as though that's the end which inevitably awaits us. If we continue down our current path of imbuing machines with increasing levels of autonomy, learning abilities and artificial intelli... (more)

[session] Demystifying #Kubernetes | @DevOpsSummit #CloudNative #Serverless #DevOps

Demystifying Kubernetes for Enterprise Developers Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex to learn. This is because Kubernetes is more of a toolset than a ready solution. Hence it's essential to know when and how to apply the appropriate Kubernetes constructs. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Jim Bugwadia, founder and CEO at Nirmata, will cover all Kubernetes concepts that are important to develo... (more)

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Culture: Change or Die All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the works because of misaligned incentives.

Workflow Automation| @CloudExpo @Accusoft #Agile #AI #DX #DevOps #Automation

Five Ways Workflow Automation Is Changing the Workplace These days, change is the only constant. In order to adapt and thrive in an ever-advancing and sometimes chaotic workforce, companies must leverage intelligent tools to streamline operations. While we're only at the dawn of machine intelligence, using a workflow manager will benefit your company in both the short and long term. Think: reduced errors, improved efficiency and more empowered employees-and that's just the start. Here are five other reasons workflow automation is leading a revolution in the 9-5 world. Increased Productivity Think of how much time you and your employees spend on routine tasks. Workflow automation is the antithesis of manual work. It takes the brunt of follow-ups and tracking, and allows more time for higher-value tasks. A study by Siemens Enterprise Communications found that a busines... (more)
