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-shop markets. If your web or mobile experiences lag, customers will abandon their transactions and might not return to try again. So snappy end-to-end application performance is a must 24x7x365. The cloud - and PaaS such as AWS and Azure in particular - can be extremely useful for delivering th... (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.

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)

Digital Crossfire | @DevOpsSummit @CAinc @Aruna13 #DevOps #API #AI #ML

Brand owners are caught in a digital crossfire. From one direction comes intense competitive pressure to innovate or to at least follow very, very quickly. From the precisely opposite direction comes the potentially existential threat of an app very publicly flopping or - even worse - being very publicly revealed to jeopardize the customer's well-being. Either way, you lose brand value in a social marketplace where brand is your primary currency. What's a brand owner to do? Auto-da-fé The car industry offers an excellent case in point.
