3 Myths About Cloud Security
"This is one that has been proclaimed by the cloud service providers (CSPs) for well over a decade. When organizations are surveyed, typically one of the top fears around security has to do with the cloud. So, it plays well to sell the notion that the cloud is more secure than on-prem, where most compute exists today. But let’s be clear, CSPs have a largely stellar track record when it comes to securing their portion of the shared responsibility model. Instances like what is cited in this recent “Forbes” article are few and far between. This is the security of the cloud versus what customers are responsible for in the cloud."

Kellblog's 10 Predictions for 2020
"Blockchain, as an enterprise technology, fades away. HIT. While I hate to my find myself on the other side of Ray Wang, I’m personally not seeing much traction for blockchain in the enterprise. Maybe I’m running with the wrong crowd. I have always felt that blockchain was designed for one purpose (to support cybercurrency), hijacked to another, and ergo became a vendor-led technology in search of a business problem. McKinsey has a written a sort of pre-obituary, Blockchain’s Occam Problem, which was McKinsey Quarterly’s second most-read article of the year. The 2019 Blockchain Opportunity Summit’s theme was “Is Blockchain Dead? No. Industry Experts Join Together to Share How We Might Not be Using it Right” which also seems to support my argument."

DevOps Metrics That Matter
"End-to-end regression testing also gets a first-class citizen role. In this category, leading organizations automate end-to-end tests at the process or transaction level. Automating these types of tests is not easy and advanced test automation tools are required because speed matters. The choice of the testing technology is important because achieving and, more importantly, maintaining high levels of automation is crucial. Therefore, the more tests that are automated, the better and so 70% of leading DevOps teams prioritize the percent of automated end-to-end test cases as a top metric."

5 DevOps Pitfalls to Watch Out for
"Apart from the technical metrics, you also need to select business metrics of DevOps so you can communicate the ROI of your efforts to major stakeholders. For this, you need to ensure that the metrics you select are outcome-based and aligned to business priorities. For example, if a major business objective with DevOps is bringing about efficiency in your processes, metrics focused on cost would be more suitable."

DataOps and the Problem with ‘Ops’ Terminology
"We were shocked to read that 90% of enterprises are using DataOps, so we took a deeper look at the underlying 451 Research report, which was based on a survey sponsored by Delphix. The study actually says that 89% of the respondents expected to increase spending, investment, or development on DataOps technologies. Yet, the study provides a process-oriented definition of DataOps that allows any company to say its product or service say it is a DataOps technology. The report surveyed 150 representatives of North American organizations with more than 1,000 employees and a minimum of 2PBs of data under management who had a solid understanding of their organization’s data management strategy."

Shifting Zero Trust Left with Cloud Native Software
"The substantial scope of software supply chain risk is to trust no one and nothing, and to expand the notion of Zero Trust to include other risk vectors. While Zero Trust is an excellent place to establish a baseline of security, it must be done in a way that does not compromise the business’ agility or innovation."

Security Metrics that Actually Matter in a DevOps World
"Deployment metrics measure the health of the deployment process and provide leading indicators of application stability.
Examples of deployment metrics: time-to-deploy, deployment frequency, deployment success/failure, time spent fixing failed releases, and environment configuration drift.
Elite performers in this category can deploy on demand;
Lead time metrics measure the capacity of the organization to respond to change and deliver business value (i.e. the time it takes to design and deliver requested security features).
Examples of lead time metrics: individual productivity/velocity, rework time, cycle time, time-to-value trends.
Elite performers in this category typically have average lead times <1 hour;"

Why Empathy in Open Source Matters More Than You Think
"Willingness to build empathy into your processes can have enormous, real-world consequences. I recently heard a fantastic talk by Nickolas Means about the Three Mile Island disaster. Most of the popular analyses of the incident trace the root cause to “human error” and stop there. But here’s the thing: chalking things up to human error is lazy. It’s much harder, and more insightful, to prod further at why those human errors occurred."

Bringing DevOps to the Full Stack at Colonial Life
"Our CI process now has two parts. The first part is a nightly Jenkins build that allows teams could get daily feedback on the entire stack — both application and database code changes. The second part is a triggered Jenkins build that occurs whenever application code is checked in. Since application code is faster to build, these triggered builds provide developers with more immediate feedback on application code changes during the course of the workday."

Principles of Good Large-Scale Agile
"Agile organizations need to balance push (the investors, sales, competitors, market conditions and others creating demand) versus the pull (which is constrained by limited capacity, skills, time, costs, etc). Product backlog management can help this, by driving strategy and vision. End-to-end visibility of how value is added is the other important aspect of enabling an organization to embrace this mentality."

Why It Is Difficult to Hire for DevOps?
"1. Yes, there is a DevOps dilemma. What we understood is the meaning of DevOps and its practices can be different for different companies; hence there is still a dilemma regarding the definition of what exactly DevOps is. As we dig further, there are no set universal principles for implementing DevOps.

In some cases, it can be difficult to establish DevOps practices in established companies because of their need to maintain existing environments and legacy applications. This makes it hard for engineers to get their hands on modern DevOps practices and tools."

"The Institute of Future and the Tech and Society Solutions Lab together created a collection of PDFs which form an Ethical OS Toolkit which helps tech teams anticipate the future impact of today’s technology. For anyone delegated organizational ethical considerations — and, again, everyone should be considering it — this toolkit includes eight zones to help you identify emerging areas of risk and social harm for your software’s future:

Truth, disinformation, and propaganda
Addiction and dopamine economy
Economic and asset inequalities
Machine ethics and algorithmic biases
Surveillance state
Data control and monetization
Implicit trust and user understanding

Don’t Get Left Behind When AI Replaces DevOps
"The emphasis should also not be on DevOps or AIOps, but on the “and.” This is because DevOps initiatives are a necessary step forward, but they can’t get the job done alone. We need to think of DevOps as the beginning of a bigger, business-critical journey towards a more automated future through AIOps and, ultimately, NoOps — the point where an IT environment becomes so automated that a dedicated team isn’t even needed for managing tasks anymore."

Because when you are trying to create a world of always-on continuous delivery and integration, you need people willing to work increased uptime, any time of day or night."

Build DevOps Teams, Start Your Digital Transformation
"Within the team structures, relegating tasks in ways that better make use of team members’ experience is beneficial, PagerDuty’s Stratton said. Traditionally, for example, senior developers and engineers have often been in charge of developing new software features while the junior staff has been tasked with bug fixes. However, it is the senior team members who likely have the experience to better understand the entire system that fixes often require. “Maybe as a senior engineer it is not as interesting to troubleshoot,” Stratton said. “But having experience gives you that understanding of how the system is built.”

7 Promises, and Potential Pitfalls, in Adopting a Cloud Native Approach to DevOps
"What’s Wrong with That: DevOps is only DevOps, I’m told, when it automates the development and operation of all applications. If we go subdividing our processes into the cloud native ones and the not-so-cloud-native ones, then we run the risk of rebuilding the silos we thought we had already disassembled.

Put another way, it would be wrong to create a DevOps for only one pool of development. Now, maybe it’s feasible to implement such a methodology if and only if the organization will develop only cloud native apps throughout its entire existence. But to restrain the organization to any single platform, I’m told, is antithetical to another of the goals of DevOps: to decouple processes from infrastructure."

Doing DevOps the Cloud Native Way
"One of the dangers of the microservices approach, if we take this train of thought to its extreme, is that it could frame the entire scenario of an enterprise’s software from the exclusive perspective of the developer. Since cloud native platforms are marketed towards developers’ interests, the result is that, at the minimum, Ops professionals could feel left out. And at the maximum, they could be left out."

The 3 big speed bumps to devops in the cloud - by @davidlinthicum
"Today’s public clouds do not provide one-stop-shopping for devops. Although they have application development management, including support for devops, it’s still a world where you’ll have to cobble together a solution from a mix of products that includes public cloud services and, yes, traditional software."

Can visualizations change policy? How IHME shares public health data at scale - by @jonerp
"Sharing public health care data sounds straightforward. But when you're trying to do it visually at massive scale, that's another matter entirely. At the MariaDB user conference, I got the inside view of how IHME powers its interactive health visualizations from Andrew Ernst. It's a story of open source tools, including MariaDB ColumnStore, and the attempt to turn data into lasting change."

MariaDB CEO on the open source enterprise – and why good databases are NOT a commodity - by @jonerp
"MariaDB's first annual user conference in New York City found MariaDB CEO Michael Howard in a confident mood. I decided to push issues, like whether "the revenge of relational databases" favors the incumbents, and see if I could find any cracks. I didn't get those, but I got some spicy/illuminating responses. I also learned why MariaDB thinks its "open source mandate" will carry the day."

Alibaba on open source and cloud business in China – live from the #MariaDB user conference by @jonerp
"One of the best things about MariaDB's first annual user conference (M|17) was hearing from open source advocates who flew in from APAC countries to tell their stories. Alibaba presented on how they use open source at monster cloud scale. I also got some interesting views on why some open source database projects are a lot better than others."

The Microservices Hierarchy of Needs

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."

Unlock the cloud’s full value: Make devops mandatory - by @davidlinthicum
"Those leery of automated devops talk about the “destructuring” of IT that occurs when automated devops happens. But that’s about protecting empires, not serving their employer. Automated devops means the focus is more on innovation and less on application development governance. Devops reduces the complexity, removes bottlenecks, and automates as much as possible. If this means breaking down the organization from six levels to two, so be it (sorry, VP of development who loves to stare at the org chart with his or her name on the top)."

Review: New Books for Understanding DevOps - by @cote
"Where “Lean Enterprise” was an excellent sermon from the pulpit of DevOps (more like a sort of compendium thereof), the “DevOps Handbook” is more like a manual for putting The Good Work into practice. “Lean Enterprise” will sell you on why you should fix your organizations, help you understand a new way of thinking about organizations, and tenderize your mind to accept the instructions in the “DevOps Handbook.”
