From the Blogosphere

In large enterprises, environment provisioning and server provisioning account for a significant portion of the operations team's time. This often leaves users frustrated while they wait for these services. For instance, server provisioning can take several days and sometimes even week...
Today’s digital world has placed a premium on the user experience. Users have become incredibly demanding, willing and able to head to a competitor’s site if just three seconds of latency occur during their time on your site. Such high demand puts web performance at the forefront of yo...
Businesses are being driven up against the wall by continual industry disruption. Many are fighting back by adopting Lean as a means to support business transformation. The aim is simple: create more value for customers with fewer resources. Lean thinking views the whole, not its part...

Snowflakes are beautiful, unique creations. But, let's keep them in nature. They don't belong in our server infrastructure. Snowflake servers, where every configuration is just a little different, can introduce unnecessary security vulnerabilities and complications. While common in IT ...
The DevOps pipeline is constantly changing. Therefore relevant security controls must be applied contextually. We want to be secure, but I think all of us would rather spend our time developing and deploying software. Keeping up with server updates and all of the other security tasks ...
In the run up to our latest release of capabilities for developers, I sat down with David Yang, a senior engineer here at PagerDuty who’s seen our internal architecture evolve from a single monolithic codebase to dozens of microservices. He’s the technical lead for our Incident Managem...
We are experiencing a ‘crisis of engagement,’ according to a survey by management consultancy Gallup, with a staggering 87 percent of employees worldwide disengaged with their jobs. While there are many factors that can influence an employee’s contentment – from support to compensation...
That's not a fancy twist on a popular approach in IT. This post is about untangling the mess Agile Release Planning has become. We're living in an age where we're chasing the latest buzzwords and trends. We hardly slow down to look at the path we've covered to see if we've improved or...
Are you tired of slipping deadlines and missing commitments? Do you feel like the consistency of Software Testing is out of your control? Here is how to improve the predictability of software testing across multiple teams and projects. The foundation of enterprise software testing pre...
Developing code, without considering either the current or future needs of the end user, can cause frustration and result in customer churn, which ultimately means lower revenues. In this blog, I'd like to describe something simple I came across that demonstrates how to avoid these pit...
Almost all of the luxury brands that we work with are somewhere on the long and winding road between multichannel and omnichannel. For outsiders, this seems to be a small step but in reality, this is an extremely complex transition. In the luxury industry, multichannel often means that...
After 15+ years of software development, I still use the words error and exception interchangeably. But is there a difference between exceptions and errors? I think it is best to make the distinction with some examples of errors vs exceptions. Let's use this example of a dishwasher....
We all know the story: a farm, a kid, a Commodore 64, and a modem maxing out at 300 bps. A few unexpected phone bills later, and young Ian Allison is figuring out how to game the system so he can keep using his newfound gateway to the world of tech. According to Ian, that is where he ...
The purpose of event management and monitoring is to make sense of events, and while this may require some analytics and intelligence, the goal is an actionable alert — a meaningful notification that enables the right person to take the right control action. So, we may leverage predict...
Exceptions are a type of error that occurs during the execution of an application. Errors are typically problems that are not expected. Whereas, exceptions are expected to happen within application code for various reasons. Applications use exception handling logic to explicitly handl...
There are some big red flags that signify your DevOps department needs an overhaul. Your deployment process seems to take forever. It only work from a few developers’ computers. It’s different for each server you deploy to. Sound familiar? Luckily the warning signs of a DevOps depar...
Waterfall analysis is a great tool for viewing detailed information about the various resources that comprise your user actions. When analyzing modern web applications, waterfall analysis can become quite complex and initially overwhelming. To make it easier for you to understand at a ...
Getting started is often the largest hurdle with any major project. Research, theory, and discussions are like the 30ft boat taking you and your team from the shore to a seemingly random point in the ocean where you will strap on your diving suit and plunge backward into the depths we’...
Even though DevOps has been around for a few years, it still is a fuzzy area for some organizations. A mashup of development and operations teams, DevOps centers on collaboration and a culture that seamlessly integrates developers and IT operations teams working to put out the best new...
For a while already we have been working with a large enterprise client, helping them to migrate their on-premise workloads to the cloud. Of course, as added value to the process, they are also migrating their legacy development processes to the modern, better, agile DevOps approach. A...
According to a roundup by Gartner, the average cost of downtime for an enterprise is $5,600 per minute. While the data collected was from incredibly large companies, the cost of downtime for even small startups is no laughing matter. Let's assume, for the sake of simplicity, that your ...
In their Live Hack” presentation at 17th Cloud Expo, Stephen Coty and Paul Fletcher, Chief Security Evangelists at Alert Logic, provided the audience with a chance to see a live demonstration of the common tools cyber attackers use to attack cloud and traditional IT systems. This “Li...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, ...
When you have a billion users, people notice. That’s where our story about DevOps and Yahoo! starts. For Kishore Jalleda and Gopal Mor, both engineers at Yahoo!, when something goes wrong on a Yahoo! page, people will notice. Correction: a lot of people will notice. Of course, Yaho...
This is the story of software. The initial blog in this series was all about the structural formation of programming languages. We went all the way back to steampunk days to see how the framework for programming grew out of Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine in the 1840s. We ended up ...
One of my favorite parts of the novel The Phoenix Project is when Bill Palmer, DevOps hero and VP of IT Operations for the fictional company “Parts Unlimited” has a light bulb moment about the central importance of IT to the business. The moment comes as the company’s CFO lays out for ...
If DevOps continues on the same trajectory into 2017 as it has been on for the past few years, specialized Ops teams could quickly become redundant. Instead, DevOps for digital companies will evolve to require only developers who nurture their own code into production. So how do establ...
Everyone wants to use containers, but monitoring containers is hard. New ephemeral architecture introduces new challenges in how monitoring tools need to monitor and visualize containers, so your team can make sense of everything. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, David Gildeh, co-found...
The rise of containers and microservices has skyrocketed the rate at which new applications are moved into production environments today. While developers have been deploying containers to speed up the development processes for some time, there still remain challenges with running micr...
As Enterprise business moves from Monoliths to Microservices, adoption and successful implementations of Microservices become more evident. The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases. Documenting hurdles and problems fo...
Application Delivery got its start in the form of network-based load balancing hardware. It is the essential foundation on which Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) operate. The second iteration of purpose-built load balancing (following application-based proprietary systems) mater...
By now, every company in the world is on the lookout for the digital disruption that will threaten their existence. In study after study, executives believe that technology has either already disrupted their industry, is in the process of disrupting it or will disrupt it in the near fu...
Bimodal IT was initially defined by Gartner as, "The practice of managing two separate but coherent styles of work: one focused on predictability, the other on exploration." Of course this needs a little unpacking, but in essence Bimodal IT refers to the notion of two distinct areas...
Meteor is a full-stack JavaScript platform for developing modern web and mobile applications. It includes developer tools, websockets, MongoDB integration, and a package manager. Atmosphere.js is the Meteor package manager. Unfortunately, it doesn’t list many Meteor monitoring soluti...
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 Mana...
Contrary to conventional wisdom, we are not entering a new era of technology. We’re already there. We are living in the midst of one of the most disruptive periods in enterprise IT, and cloud is the leading catalyst. There are several trends marking this dramatic transition in 2017, fi...
In 1943, a psychology theory was introduced by Abraham Maslow outlining a hierarchy of needs. The hierarchy describes the stages of growth, starting with basic survival needs and moving onto more complex needs. If basic needs are not met, higher-level needs will not be attainable and ...
Given the increasing reliance on digital systems to accomplish many everyday tasks, there’s no denying the performance — specifically, speed, and reliability — of these systems is critical to ensuring end users will have a positive experience. At the forefront are industry giants like ...
One hour before March Madness is about to begin, the CBS Sports app crashes. Per Twitter, college basketball fans across the country are freaking out, trying to get their last minute bracket changes completed before the first game begins. Millions of fans around the world are expected...

The nature of test environments is inherently temporary—you set up an environment, run through an automated test suite, and then tear down the environment. If you can reduce the cycle time for this process down to hours or minutes, then you may be able to cut your test environment budgets considerably. The impact of cloud adoption on test environments is a valuable advancement in both cost savings and agility. The on-demand model takes advantage of public cloud APIs requiring only payment for the time needed to run automated tests. In this framework, success depends on two things: automated i...
MongoDB, an open-source document store and most popular NoSQL database on the market today, offers a variety of advanced features to administer security over your MongoDB deployments. In this tutorial post, we’re going to show you how to set up role-based access control (RBAC) to manage user access across your MongoDB systems for reIndex, mongodump and mongorestore. If you're the administrator of your MongoDB databases, you've likely received requests to provide an individual user with the capabilities to perform a certain action(s).

So data warehousing may not be cool anymore, you say? It’s yesterday’s technology (or 1990’s technology if you’re as old as me) that served yesterday’s business needs. And while it’s true that recent big data and data science technologies, architectures and methodologies seems to have rendered data warehousing to the back burner, it is entirely false that there is not a critical role for the data warehouse and Business Intelligence in digitally transformed organizations.
identify the sources of event storms and performance anomalies will require automated, real-time root-cause analysis. I think Enterprise Management Associates said it well: “The data and metrics collected at instrumentation points across the application ecosystem are essential to performance monitoring and root cause analysis. However, analytics capable of transforming data and metrics into an application-focused report or dashboards are what separates actual application monitoring from relatively simple silo monitoring.
Many enterprise and government IT organizations are realizing the benefits of cloud computing by extending IT delivery and management processes across private and public cloud services. But they are often challenged with balancing the need for centralized cloud governance without stifling user-driven innovation. This strategy requires an approach that fundamentally reshapes how IT is delivered today, shifting the focus from infrastructure to services aggregation, and mixing and matching the best services for meeting organizations’ current and future needs.

Java 9 ships with some minor—yet awesome—new language features that make developing easier and cleaner. In this post, we’ll take a look at three of these new features. You probably remember interface methods, which were introduced in Java 8. These are required so that Java itself, as well as framework vendors, can add new methods to interfaces without breaking pre-existing implementations. As these methods can become rather complex, Java now enables you to declare interface methods as private. This allows for extracting common code from interface methods while hiding the code from external us...
How much does it cost to make an app is almost as popular a question as it is confusing. No one tries to learn the exact costs of, say, making a movie: people realize that there’s an overwhelming amount of variables involved on which they depend. But almost every day a new inquiry is posted on a tech forum, Quora, or Reddit as to how much it’d take to build a mobile business app.
Digital experience monitoring plays a vital role in the ecommerce economy. The industry is booming with millions of websites selling everything imaginable. Online stores are expected to be super fast and easy to navigate; users are quick to assess website performance and if said perceived performance is below expectations, they will quickly move on to competitor’s website.
"This all sounds great. But it's just not realistic." This is what a group of five senior IT executives told me during a workshop I held not long ago. We were working through an exercise on the organizational characteristics necessary to successfully execute a digital transformation, and the group was doing their ‘readout.' The executives loved everything we discussed and agreed that if such an environment existed, it would make transformation much easier. They just didn't believe it was realistic.

Artificial intelligence, virtual reality, software-defined networking, Hyperconverged Infrastructure, the cloud. These are all technological advancements intended to improve how IT systems and operations work, to give the business better agility and reduced costs, and ultimately to give end-users a new and better experience.  Quite often, however, IT’s creators and consumers alike lose sight of the […]

Today’s hyper-connectivity of both people and things has led to an enormous jump in network traffic. Global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next five years. It’s not going to lessen, nor is it going to get slower. These factors create a need for high-speed networks to ensure service level and capacity. 100G network links are deployed by telecom networks and data centers, serving hundreds of thousands of users, so that these providers can keep pace with customer demand. This then creates the need to test and troubleshoot on the networks at 100G link speed.
These days, no matter what task you’re trying to accomplish within your online properties, chances are there’s at least one cloud solution that provides it. However, with so much of our personal and business data living now online, there’s perhaps no functionality more important than cloud security. With cyber attacks more prevalent than ever, it’s imperative that organizations – regardless of their size and scope – protect both themselves and their clients from nefarious individuals who prey on unsecured networks and data.
Organizations around the world are struggling to cope with the current data explosion. A vital characteristic of this data is that it is unstructured and represents things like email, images, and videos. Storage of this form of data is typically in an object format which differs significantly from the database norm. Databases housed data grows very slowly because most of it is structured. Object storage formats are now being used to optimize access to large amounts of non-transactional files across a growing number of vertical markets.
The rule of thumb for network security today is that there is no perimeter anymore. An outsider can easily become an insider once perimeter security is breached. Every day, attackers find new ways to breach enterprise perimeter security through ransomware, malware or phishing through social engineering. This is not to suggest that all is lost. Rather, organizations can defeat cybercriminals, in part, by better managing what has already been put in place. As an example of what can go wrong if that doesn’t happen, consider the following story.
The benefits of automation are well documented; it increases productivity, cuts cost and minimizes errors. It eliminates repetitive manual tasks, freeing us up to be more innovative. By that logic, surely, we should automate everything possible, right? So, is attempting to automate everything a sensible - even feasible - goal? In a word: no. Consider this your short guide as to what to automate and what not to automate.
One problem that all developers and companies struggle with is trying to decide if they should "build it" or "buy it". Software developers love to build things. That is what we do! Their natural reaction tends to lean towards building things. We are also always up for a new challenge. There are very good reasons for building or buying software. There are also good reasons to use open source projects, which is a third option.
The question before companies today is not whether to become intelligent, it’s a question of how and how fast. The key is to adopt and deploy an intelligent application strategy while simultaneously preparing to scale that intelligence. In her session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sangeeta Chakraborty, Chief Customer Officer at Ayasdi, provided a tactical framework to become a truly intelligent enterprise, including how to identify the right applications for AI, how to build a Center of Excellence to operationalize the intelligence and how to implement a strategy to scale efforts. She pulled from her ex...
"IBM is really all in on blockchain. We take a look at sort of the history of blockchain ledger technologies. It started out with bitcoin, Ethereum, and IBM evaluated these particular blockchain technologies and found they were anonymous and permissionless and that many companies were looking for permissioned blockchain," stated René Bostic, Technical VP of the IBM Cloud Unit in North America, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud revolution in enterprises has very clearly crossed the phase of proof-of-concepts into a truly mainstream adoption. One of most popular enterprise-wide initiatives currently going on are “cloud migration” programs of some kind or another. Finding business value for these programs is not hard to fathom – they include hyperelasticity in infrastructure consumption, subscription based models, and agility derived from rapid speed of deployment of applications. These factors will continue to drive cloud adoption into the foreseeable future.
