3 Reasons Why API Management Is Dead
"The service control platform intelligently brokers information across all services. Instead of simply transferring information from Point A to Point B, it will understand the information and make intelligent decisions for what to with it."

Internet of Things Platforms: Microsoft Azure vs. Google Cloud Platform vs. Amazon Web Services
"Far in the lead in the cloud computing race is Amazon Web Services, Amazon’s own cloud offering. Among its main features are infrastructure as a service, cloud storage solutions, database system management, application and content migration, developer tools that make development faster, as well as machine learning capabilities. IoT-targeted features are available through the AWS IoT platform."

The Edge Is Replacing the Cloud, and Mobile Is Making It Happen
"For mobile developers, the future feels pretty close. After all, if you’ve been building mobile apps, you’ve already been building on the edge. It’s not at all strange for you to have experience building apps that are resilient and capable. You’ve been dealing with intermittent networks and learning how to enable features even when your users go offline, and how to resolve conflicts when they get a connection back again. You’ve figured out how to package high-performance features like machine learning into something that can run on a phone. You’ve lived with battery and processing and storage constraints, and know how to get the most out of them."

Creative Software Destruction and the New Presentation Layer
"The power within IT has clearly moved from infrastructure teams to application teams. Developers and architects prefer to think in services and they expect the infrastructure to be programmable, cheap, elastic, and secure. They no longer want to worry about low-level concerns of infrastructure management and instead, they want frictionless and limitless capabilities and then access to APIs for other services to help them compose applications. We are moving more toward an application- or service-centric model as opposed to an infrastructure-centric approach."

Why the Cloud Wars Will Be Good for Your Business
"That said, over time, a fractured market benefits no one. Users have to manage the complexity and providers are limited in reach. So we will likely see the pendulum continue to swing as the market ultimately navigates towards an equilibrium point. Of course, when we get to that point, the discussion will shift to supplier management strategies, which will again strengthen the case for a multi-cloud future."

Microservices: Terribly Named, Ambiguously Defined
"For a profession that stresses the importance of naming things well, we’ve done ourselves a disservice with microservices. The problem is that that there is nothing inherently “micro” about microservices. Some can be small, but size is relative and there’s no standard of unit of measure across organizations. A “small” service at one company might be one million lines of code while far less at another."

How Non-Disparagement Clauses Hide Toxic Workplace Culture
"Ehmke’s experience is not unique, but no one hears these stories because non-disparage clauses are rampant in the tech industry. They are essentially hush money.

It’s one reason that so many people were unaware of the rampant sexism exposed by ex-Uber engineer Susan Fowler earlier this year and popping up since across the industry. A common theme from non-marginalized populations among Twitter threads has been “If this is so prevalent, why haven’t I heard about it?”

Wal-Mart Kicks Partners Off Amazon’s Cloud: The Implications for Organizations
"As first reported by CNBC on Wednesday, retail and e-commerce giant Wal-Mart notified some of its technology partners that they need to move their information assets away from Amazon Web Services if they want to continue doing business.

This move certainly comes as no surprise to many, as the two companies are long-standing rivals in their respective quests to dominate the world of retail."

The Ever-Changing Roles of the Developer: How to Adapt and Thrive
"Just as the developer’s role is changing, so too have our ways of measuring not only our progress but also the effectiveness and performance of our code, tools and processes. This increased visibility is a good thing, overall. When it comes to measurement, there is a whole bunch of wrong ways to do it, among them measuring lines of code or the number of deploys. In fact, this very visibility, inherent to all of the data we now constantly measure, has been a great boon to DevOps."

The Linux Foundation and Its Critics
"Yet although Garrett’s criticisms were largely unsupported, they were repeated uncritically, including on the popular FOSS Force site, under the headline “Linux Foundation sells out.” The article attracted another series of criticisms altogether: that the Foundation had no interest in desktop Linux and was no more than “another corporate power play,” and that the community needed to fight the “hypocrisy” of corporations and ensure that they never controlled the direction of open source development."

An Open Letter to Database Administrators: Be the DBA of the Future!
"Now that everyone in IT, including the CIO, realizes the significance of the challenges associated with the database change process, DBAs need to take part in the creation of the solution. And that solution must be able to handle the rapid increase in the number applications and the subsequent smaller, more frequent releases."

The Microservices Hierarchy of Needs
"Once I listed the main microservices concerns (the order may vary for you) I couldn’t stop myself noticing that the Kubernetes container orchestration engine does cover a big chunk of these needs pretty well. So I’ve added Kubernetes to the diagram as well."

Coming Out in Tech: Communication is Key
"One must keep in mind that identity is often psychopathological: it’s that thing that we only seem to sense, or at least sense most strongly when it gets rubbed the wrong way when it puts us in distress. I was feeling that friction around the topic of gender, and I had to address it somehow. For me, that meant exploring the realm of transition. After all, coming out as gay at my previous job went alright, so perhaps it was time to see how coming out as transgender would work while I had a relatively safe situation to do so."

The Reality of Microservices in the Enterprise
"A phased approach can be beneficial in making progress toward Microservices and DevOps. Although the concept of moving to a pure agile and DevOps organization sounds great on paper, most organizations cannot do this; they lack the talent, funding, or requirements to change many of the legacy systems which currently operate the day to day business."

The DevOpsification of Security
"Talk to any CISO and they’ll tell you that hiring and retaining qualified security personnel is their greatest challenge. Couple that with the fact that the average large enterprise has deployed anywhere from 50 to 70 disparate security products. The result is that understaffed teams simply cannot keep up with today’s high velocity, rapidly evolving threat landscape. The only solution becomes to replace humans with machines — to automate and orchestrate systems to understand and respond to alerts themselves"

How Cloud Architects Could Save the IT Department from Disappearing
"Some tech prognosticators go so far as to state the demise of the traditional IT department is at hand. As cloud, mobile, IoT, and other technologies decentralize data and applications, individual business units take the lead role in managing vital corporate data assets. In a piece in Gadget, Barry Cashman discusses the results of a recent study by VCE that examined how the shift to converged infrastructures will transform IT into an extension of individual business units."

With Infrastructure Software, Go SaaS or Go Home
"SaaS fundamentally eliminates all major customer experience problems we’ve spoken about:

Bugs can be detected much faster and resolved globally across all affected customers.
Upgrades are “free” and happen magically behind the scenes.
Operating the solution is “free” and happens magically behind the scenes."

Bimodal IT: What’s Not to Like?
"“It’s a big fallacy,” he said, referring to how the bimodal concept breaks enterprise IT operations into two distinct camps — those supporting legacy IT applications where change is slow and hampered by corporate policy, and those building new cloud-based apps, where change is driven at a quicker pace by business development."

The Great DevOps Train Wreck is About to Crash into Your Data Center
"The DevOps revolution, driven largely by containers, is placing new and mighty demands on the enterprise data center, demands that will break infrastructure and policies designed for a dying era of monolithic apps. If we don’t work together as a community to build a new generation of tooling for the DevOps era, performance won’t meet expectations, and then we’ll all get to read articles about how DevOps failed."

Hey Startups: Turning Off Slack Won’t Solve Your Management Problems
"Finally, this is not to say that we can’t have innovation in management. I’m dubious about Holacracy and getting rid of middle-management, but if you read about companies that think they have successfully gotten rid of middle-managers, they are still doing management."
