Everybody loves DevOps. In fact, DevOps is hottest date in IT. That's because DevOps promises to satisfy the deepest longings of digital business-including fast execution on innovative ideas, competitively differentiated customer experiences, and significantly improved operational efficiencies. But who does DevOps love? This is more than a cute Valentine's-themed question. It's a fundamental challenge for anyone leading a DevOps initiative. What passions and motivations are driving your DevOps teams? How do you know? And if those motivations aren't the right ones, how do you re-direct them? Metrics, it turns out, may hold the answers.

Three #DevOps Predictions | @DevOpsSummit @CAinc @Aruna13 #DevSecOps

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.

As application awesomeness becomes more important to the business, IT must get great code into production faster.

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?
