How KeyBank Used DevOps to Overcome Cost, Complexity, and Legacy Constraints
"Rzeszotarski emphasized the importance of containers as “Rather than have to have 15 teams have to put their hands into the solution to release it, it’s all built within code. It’s reusable. You’re putting that responsibility back to the app team to manage it and we are making it testable and we are using Kubernetes to put the rails up to guard it and make sure it’s highly available and highly reliable.”"

3 DevOps Insights from NIO, Maker of Self-Driving Cars and a Kubernetes Power User
"When we think Internet-of-things (IoT), we’ve been trained to think internet-connected toasters, fridges and thermostats. There might be a lot of these devices, but they won’t produce much data. The much bigger part of IoT will be industrial devices, like self-driving cars."

No Grumpy Humans and Other Site Reliability Engineering Lessons from Google
'It’s about building credibility for the long term. That’s the fundamental element that makes the SRE role work, she told New Relic’s Matthew Fleming, in a talk about what others may learn from her SRE experience at Google. “You really won’t get anywhere with a product development software engineering team if you walk in there and say, ‘You’re doing A, B, and C wrong, like you must fix this,’” she said."

How Workday Bridges the Gap between Amazon and OpenStack
"“What I will strongly recommend is to build something,” Magana advised. “I keep calling it ‘middleware,’ but something that abstracts the back-end platform, your pipeline system, from the way to deliver your application artifact to production. I strongly recommend that.”

It is nothing like Aporeto’s CEO described it: succumbing to the relentless will of a monopolistic beast with its sights set on world domination. If anything, Workday’s strategy is a do-it-yourself program for making global public cloud deployment viable for an organization that is not, and may not ever be, rooted there to begin with."

Letting Your Customers Tell Your Story - by @barnes_hank
"But, when validation of service comes from your customers, it is immediately more credible. The volume of stories in the Mimecast piece is impressive. They had many many customers who were willing to invest their time to create stories about their experience. And the only thing Mimecast had to do was basic editing and layout."

Going Beyond the “What” in Case Studies - by @barnes_hank
"But “what stories” dont work for people that are not that far along. They need to know the why. Why did they need an e-commerce system? What was wrong with their old one? What problems were they experiencing? With “why stories,” you can help people sense and recognize issues they are facing that they had not identified a solution path for. You can tie that in to the value of solving them.

“Why stories” help people build the case for change."

SAP Indirect Access: What the Diageo Case Means to SAP Customers

Nate Silver’s Lessons for Big Data from the Unpredicted Trump Victory
"Data is not interesting for its own sake, but for how it relates to everything else. It’s like a map, you need to see how the data relates to everything else. A coordinate itself doesn’t tell you anything. But as your data set gets larger, you go from five variables to ten, you begin to see an exponential increase in complexity."

How Shell Oil Is Taking DevOps and Agile to the Cutting Edge
"Of course, another important way to measure success in the oil and gas industry is whether or not it complied. For agile and Scrum in the heavily regulated worlds, certainly “compliant” is another definition of “done.”

Measuring cultural changes is always a challenge, but it’s a particular hurdle for such a large multinational."

Dealing with the “happy customers won’t do case studies” problem - @barnes_hank
"Still don’t believe you can make progress. Maybe this will help. In a recent survey of 508 technology buyers (mix of business and IT roles, at varying org levels and in orgs from over 100 people to over 10,000), only 4% said they would not participate in any advocacy related activities. That means 96% are willing to help their providers, as long as they are receiving value."

What Spotify Learned From the Flop of its App Store
"Or better yet, what happened after the app platform stumble? And did their change to “speeding through failure” actually work? Frödin told us they built a Web API, which enabled them to “build a lot of interesting stuff for our users and internally,” as the API enables them to have a lot of flexibility for rapid change."

Scaling Agile: When to Build a Scrum of Scrums
"So, are there frameworks that work? The four different agile coaches seemed to all be fans of the Large Scale Scrum framework or LeSS because they said says it has you scale by descaling and by removing managers and decreasing emphasis on specialization. It’s another framework built to bring Scrum to larger teams, but built on the idea that you can get “More with LeSS.”

Apache Spark for Deep Learning: Two Case Studies
"When it comes to big data-styled analytics processing, it’s a so-called two-horse race between the old stallion Hadoop MapReduce and young buck Apache Spark. Increasingly, many companies that are running in Hadoop environments are choosing to process their big data with Spark instead."

Wait for the infrastructure team to write service scaffolding.
Wait for IT to locate services.
Wait for infrastructure team to provision services."

Is It Time to End the Traditional Approach to Reference Management in Technology Marketing? - by @barnes_hank
"The respondents may have viewed “sales arranged” as “moderated”. As a result, their skepticism about the authenticity of the discussion might be higher. With this interpretation or viewed at face value, the message to technology marketing and sales is clear. If you connect a prospect to the customer, get out of the way. Allow them to have a discussion without anyone from your organization present to moderate or influence the discussion."
