Mentoring Is a Key to Broadening IT Diversity - podcast from @thenewstack
"The solution to the ongoing issue of diversity is not entirely a pipeline problem, Nampy explained. In particular, it is a problem with the culture of OpenStack and tech overall. “Culture is a big thing. The conversations happening in IRC that are happening are quite frankly not pleasant if you’re a woman. It’s quite male dominated, and conversations can be quite reflective of that. People forget that there are women in the meeting as well. That’s one thing I would like to see cleaned up a bit is the culture.”

For Modern Business, it’s ‘DevOps or Die’
"For enterprise infrastructure software, “The purchasing cycle has collapsed and the deployment cycle has collapsed,” Cockcroft agreed. The old ways of upgrading enterprise software, such as an SAP system, was by having a dedicated team come in and spend months doing the upgrade, and then moving on to the next project. This approach was centered around the model of large periodic updates of the software, which may come out about ever 18 – 24 months. But the move to CI/CD means the updates come in smaller chunks, and arrive more frequently."

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."

News Analysis - IBM Boosts Support to OpenStack's RefStack... first serious attempt - by @holgermuto make OpenStack interoperability real
"During OpenStack Summit in Austin, probably close to a hundred press releases have been published, tough to find the most important one, but this one from IBM stood out for me. Interoperabiity has always been a promise of the OpenStack community and vendors, but it is tough to prove it (and build for it)."

TNS Research: Developing a Methodology for Analyzing Open Source Communities
"The New Stack is developing a methodology for analyzing open source communities. To begin this effort, we decided to look at the composition of several open source projects. In an initial analysis, we’ve learned a bit about the companies and the people who are participating in the development of OpenStack, Docker, Kubernetes, and other new stack technologies."

Hewlett Packard Reboots With Enterprise Focus
"HP Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) debuts today (Nov. 2) with a little north of $50 billion in annual revenue and what CEO Meg Whitman hopes is a strategy to compete in an increasingly cutthroat enterprise technology market. Whitman’s plan entails competing head-to-head on cloud and datacenter infrastructure while growing its IT security and big data units that are gradually being folded into a range of enterprise offerings."

News Analysis - VMware makes progress towards the (hybrid) cloud - now let's watch the adoption - by @holgermu
"Holger takes apart another press release..."VMware seems to have made February the month of the cloud and is promising 28 days of Cloud Insight (see more here). VMware execs must be pretty confident that they have enough material – as they did not even include the recently (well last week) announced partnership with Google (more here). So let’s dissect the press release from February 2nd 2015 that kicked off a webinar series lead by VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger and CTO Ben Fathi."
