The full advantage of DevOps can only be achieved if development and operations work together with the specialist departments and management on a value adding product. Or to put more radical: The topic is no longer called DevOps, but BizDevOps. The integration of business and DevOps changes the cooperation, organization, and processes of companies. All involved must set impulses for the digital transformation of the company and can generate economic benefits faster.
Data-driven decision-making is a goal of most leaders today. Unfortunately, between the overwhelming amounts of data available to us and the ease of falling prey to misleading vanity metrics, how to begin this journey can feel extremely elusive. In this talk from DevOpsCon 2018 Julia Wester, co-founder and Principal Consultant at Lagom Solutions, discusses ways to map your metrics back to your desired goals and a better understanding of metrics safety. This is the first step for setting the stage for smart, data-driven decision-making.
In the DevOps environment, Docker can no longer be reduced only to a container runtime. An application that is divided into several microservices has greater orchestration requirements instead of simple scripts. For this, Docker has introduced the service abstraction Docker Swarm to help orchestrate containers across multiple hosts.
A system such as Kubernetes can be viewed from different angles. Some think of it in terms of infrastructure, as the successor to OpenStack, although the infrastructure is cloud-agnostic. For others, it is a platform which makes it easier to orchestrate microservice architectures — or cloud-native architectures, as they are called nowadays — to deploy applications more easily, plus making them more resilient and scalable.
Higher quality, stability as well as faster time-to-market make Continuous Delivery a must. But are you ready for it? Jez Humble, author of the Jolt Award winning Continuous Delivery book, says if you can affirmatively answer these five questions you are ready!
