74% Of Data Breaches Start With Privileged Credential Abuse
"Enterprises who are prioritizing privileged credential security are creating a formidable competitive advantage over their peers, ensuring operations won’t be interrupted by a breach. However, there’s a widening gap between those businesses protected from a breach and the many who aren’t. In quantifying this gap consider the typical U.S.-based enterprise will lose on average $7.91M from a breach, nearly double the global average of $3.68M according to IBM’s 2018 Data Breach Study."

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.”"

IBM’s 2018 Data Breach Study Shows Why We’re In A Zero Trust World Now
"The report is a quick read and the data provided is fascinating. One can’t help but reflect on how legacy security technologies designed to protect digital businesses decades ago isn’t keeping up with the scale, speed and sophistication of today’s breach attempts. The most common threat surface attacked is compromised privileged credential access. 81% of all breaches exploit identity according to an excellent study from Centrify and Dow Jones Customer Intelligence, CEO Disconnect is Weakening Cybersecurity (31 pp, PDF, opt-in)."

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."

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

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

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.”

Suddenly, if you’re not a Digital native who talks about endless disruption and the coming robo-geddon, you’re a dinosaur… The gap between hype and reality has reached ridiculous proportions, and it’s time we stopped thinking about the fantastical future and focus on what we can achieve today."

Wait for IT to locate services.

Netflix Users Try Out the Sleek, Omnichannel-Focused Redesign
"Netflix’s redesign is just one of many new websites to incorporate an app-like interface to create a consistent experience. The new site looks and feels much more like Netflix’s mobile, console, and smart TV apps than the old site did. While no design is perfect, users appreciate knowing what to expect from a company. The “modern, sleek” feel that users noticed in the new site may be doing just that."
