Top Stories by Aruna Ravichandran

A lot of time, resources and energy has been invested over the past few years on de-siloing development and operations. And with good reason. DevOps is enabling organizations to more aggressively increase their digital agility, while at the same time reducing digital costs and risks. But as 2017 approaches, the hottest trends in DevOps aren't specifically about dev or ops. They're about testing, security, and metrics. 2017 Prediction #1: Continuous testing becomes a top topic of interest in 2017 The rapid promotion of new code into production is a noble goal, but it can also be an express ticket to digital failure. DevOps success requires not just speed, but also quality-that means the rapid promotion of really, really good code. And the only way to ensure that your code is really, really good is to test it, continuously. We all intuitively know the value of testing.... (more)

Cloud #APM | @CloudExpo @CAinc @Aruna13 #APM #DevOps #ML #CD #SDN

As the race for the presidency heats up, IT leaders would do well to recall the famous catchphrase from Bill Clinton's successful 1992 campaign against George H. W. Bush: "It's the economy, stupid." That catchphrase is important, because IT economics are important. Especially when it comes to cloud. Application performance management (APM) for the cloud may turn out to be as much about those economics as it is about customer experience. Consistently great experiences - but at what price? Consistently great digital customer experiences are central to success in today's swipe-to-sho... (more)

Now you're ready to rock and ro... (more)

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

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? Thinking ahea...

DevOps Requires APM | @DevOpsSummit @CAInc #DevOps #APM

Much of the discussion around cloud DevOps focuses on the speed with which companies need to get new code into production. This focus is important - because in an increasingly digital marketplace, new code enables new value propositions. New code is also often essential for maintaining competitive parity with market innovators. But new code doesn't just have to deliver the functionality the business requires. It also has to behave well because the behavior of code in the cloud affects performance, cost, reliability, and scalability. For developers to write code that behaves well... (more)
